  What are your favorite parts from movies that have you dying laughing every time you see it?  The movie doesn't have to be great, just a scene that makes you laugh like crazy.


1.  "Caddyshack"...This is a great dialogue by Bill Murray as Carl Spackler: So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one -- big hitter, the Lama -- long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.


2.  "Airplane!"...Its hard to pick a favorite from this one, as there are several scenes that have me dying laughing.  If forced to choose, I would say the scene where Lloyd Bridges says out of nowhere "Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue!"

3.  "Dumb and Dumber"...The Sea Bass (former NHLer Cam Neely) subplot.  When that random guy yells "Kick his ass Sea Bass!" I lose it.


4.  "Happy Gilmore"...I love it when Barker and Sandler start fighting.  I realize its pretty easy humor, but I can't stop laughing watching this.

5.  "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"...This dialogue between Chevy Chase's character and the snobby neighbor and his wife (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) cracks me up:
Todd: “Where do you think you're gonna put a tree that big?”
Clark: “Bend over and I'll show you.”
Todd: “You've got a lot of nerve, talking to me like that, Griswold!”
Clark: “I wasn't talking to you!”


6.  "Office Space"...The scene where they beat the [email protected]#t out of the fax machine/printer; good stuff.

7.  "Strange Brew"...The entire segment where Moranis and Thomas's characters are in the courtroom.


8.  "Super Troopers"...The scene where the crazed redneck is supposedly having sex with a bear is gold.


9.  "The Naked Gun"...Lots of good stuff in the "Naked Gun" movies, the queen scene was pretty funny.

10.  "Clerks"...The video store clerk lists out the loud the most indiscreetly named porno titles in history, with a kid watching.

  Honorable mentions...or little yucks that I picked up on and consider underrated.
  There is a painting in "The Royal Tenenbaums" that is the funniest thing I've ever seen.  Its a bunch of guys on ATVs wearing tribal masks.  I don't even remember whats going on in the foreground, I just love that awful painting.
  Another good scene is when the cheesy 80s guy opens the doors to his Delorean in "The Wedding Singer" and the Miami Vice theme comes booming out.


I know I'm forgetting a few gems for sure and most off of the top of my head are relatively (after 1980ish) recent movies...What are some of your favorites scenes?  Again it doesn't have to be a great movie, just a scene that cracks you up.

Mt all time favorite is the mirror sequence from The Marx Brothers Duck Soup.It may look a little dated now but it still cracks me up everytime.
                                 

The Odd Couple is one of my favorite movies and the whole movie always cracks me up,especially this scene when Felix is pouring his heart out to the pigeon sisters and Oscar walks in and says "Is everybody happy".
                                            

The 'Burbs is another one of my favorite comedies,and I couldn't find a picture of the scene I like best,but it's when Bruce Dern is on his roof with his rifle and he slips and falls off and just after he hits the ground his rifle hits the ground and goes off shooting out a car window.

Dumb and Dumber is one of those movies that makes me laugh just knowing what's coming up.

One of my favorite comedies is The In-Laws. The scene with the hand puppet kills me. The General also has all of those nude paintings hanging around.

In Being John Malkovich, when John goes into his own portal. I never thought I'd see John Malkovich with cleavage. :o

I love the scene in Murder by Death when Agatha Christie and her nurse are getting gassed.

Young Frankenstein[/font] (1974 - Mel Brooks)

The Monster (Peter Boyle) wanders into the home of a kindly blint hermit (Gene Hackman) who disasterously shows him the hospitality of fine wine, hot soup and a good cigar. Absolutely brilliant parody of the scene from The Bride of Frankenstein, with impeccable comic timing from Boyle and Hackman. There are about twenty-nine great scenes in Young Frankenstein, but this is my favorite among favorites.

HERMIT
Wait, don't go! I was going to

  "Young Frankenstein" is a classic, and Boyle is dead on as the monster.  "Blazing Saddles" has some good moments, as does most of Brooks earlier stuff.

  I found that so-awful-its-funny painting from "The Royal Tenenbaums"...Its funnier to see it in the context of the film, but here it is:

And any scene in short movies of Laurel and Hardy ! ;D ;D ;D ;D

Once, a number of years ago, a friend of mine who also likes the films of Ingmar Bergman called me up and told me to turn on the TV to Channel Such-And-So. I hung up and obliged, and soon started laughing. What I saw was De Düva: The Dove, starring, among others, the late, great Madeline Kahn. It's a hysterical parody of the esteemed Swedish director's angst-ridden œuvre ... unfortunately, not available on video.

When it was over I called my friend back. For about five minutes, as I recall, neither of us said anything. We just laughed and laughed.

(The entire thing is just 15 minutes long, so I hope it qualifies as "favorite scene" even though it's  a whole short subject.)

spinal tap


Marty DiBergi: David St. Hubbins... I must admit I've never heard anybody with that name.
David St. Hubbins: It's an unusual name, well, he was an unusual saint, he's not a very well known saint.
Marty DiBergi: Oh, there actually is, uh... there was a Saint Hubbins?
David St. Hubbins: That's right, yes.
Marty DiBergi: What was he the saint of?
David St. Hubbins: He was the patron saint of quality footwear.
or
Nigel Tufnel: Well, I suppose I could work in a shop of some kind or... or do um... freelance... selling of some sort of... um... product, you know...
Marty DiBergi: A salesman, you think you...
Nigel Tufnel: A salesman, like, mabye in a haberdasher, or maybe like a... um, a chapeau shop, or something... you know, like: "Would you... what size do you wear, sir?" and then you answer me.
Marty DiBergi: Uh... seven and a quarter.
Nigel Tufnel: "I think we have that...", you see, something like that I could do.
Marty DiBergi: Yeah... you think you'd be happy doing something like-...
Nigel Tufnel: "No! We're all out, do you wear black?", see, that sort of thing, I think I could probably muster up.
Marty DiBergi: Yeah, do you think you'd be happy doing that?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, I don't know, wh-wh-what are the hours?



Nigel is playing a soft piece on the piano
Marty DiBergi: It's very pretty.
Nigel Tufnel: Yeah, I've been fooling around with it for a few months.
Marty DiBergi: It's a bit of a departure from what you normally play.
Nigel Tufnel: It's part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I'm working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don't know why.
Marty DiBergi: It's very nice.
Nigel Tufnel: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of...
Marty DiBergi: What do you call this?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump".


David St. Hubbins: We say, "Love your brother." We don't say it really, but...
Nigel Tufnel: We don't literally say it.
David St. Hubbins: No, we don't say it.
Nigel Tufnel: We don't really, actually mean it.
David St. Hubbins: No, we don't believe it either, but...
Nigel Tufnel: But we're not racists.
David St. Hubbins: But that message should be clear.

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
pause

Nigel Tufnel is showing Marty DiBergi one of his favorite guitars
Nigel Tufnel: The sustain, listen to it.
Marty DiBergi: I don't hear anything.
Nigel Tufnel: Well you would though, if it were playing.

Spinal Tap        Any scene in this movie. But especialy the Stonehenge scene

Laurel and Hardy.  Way out West.. the tickling scene. In fact pretty much any L&H scene from their shorts and early features


Jacques Tati in Mon Oncle.. where he throws the lighter out of the window.

Raising Arizona:

The funniest scene in this film is when Nicholas Cage attempts to rob some Huggies wearing panties over his head from a liquor store for the baby him and his wife kidnapped. When his wife finds out what he is up to, she gets agitated and leaves him with a crazy liquor store clerk with a license to kill. He escapes only to find the cops trying to kill him as well. He runs around the block trying to evade the cops only to stumble across a blood hungry dog trying to rip his head off. He jumps over the fence and runs to another local grocery store to steal another Huggies only to find the cop, some more dogs, and a random guy with a shotgun trying to blow his head off as well. His wife finally get's to her senses and saves him. He then tells her where to go while being heavily lectured by her and picks up the Huggies he dropped on the road that he stole from the liquor store.
This scene is full of non-stop laughter and directorial genius. This is only part of the madness of Raising Arizona.

Oh ! yes, that's a really funny scene ! ;D

I love Tati, his movies are always full of tenderness, humour and nostalgia too. The "world" he describes no longer exists anywhere on the planet ...  have you seen "Mr Hulot's holidays" ? The scene where he tries to paint the small fishing boat on the beach, then, when he plays tennis ... ;D ;D

Thank you Gant, to make me think of that movie this morning !

The other scene I love from Jacques Tati is where the fountain is playing in the garden in front of the house.  How is goes on and off.

Peter Sellers in  Pink Panther movies when he says he has come to repair the 'foon'.  Also the one where he sets fire to his waste paper bin and of course when he spins the globe and gets his finger caught.

I love this moment in Kingpin...Quaid's character is standing there with an idiot grin on his face holding a bucket of what he thinks is milk.

From "Kingpin"...



Roy Munson (Randy Quaid):  Morning! I hope you don't mind, I got up a little early. So I took the liberty of milking your cow for you. Yeah, it took a little while to get her warmed up. She sure is a stubborn one. Then pow, all at once."

  Yep, I got the two confused.  All I remember is the dumb grin and the bucket.  And it wouldn't make sense since Quaid's character grew up on the farm.
 
  I need to watch it again soon, its been since I saw it in the theater and once shortly after on video.

There's something about Mary


TED GETS HIS DICK STUCK IN THE ZIPPER!

                                                       CUT TO:

EXT. BATHROOM DOOR - NIGHT

A concerned Mary, her Mom, Dad, and Warren are huddled outside the
bathroom.

                        MARY
                 (knocking gently)
           Ted, are you okay?

                        TED (O.S.)
                 (pained)
           Just a minute.

                        MARY'S MOM
           He's been in there over half an hour.
                 (whispering)
           Charlie, I think he's masturbating.

                        MARY
           Mom!

                        MARY'S MOM
           Well he was watching you undress with a
           silly grin on his face.

                        TED (O.S.)
                 (pained)
           I was watching the birds!

They all look at one another.

                        MARY'S MOM
           Charlie, do something.

                        MARY'S DAD
           All right, kid, that's it, I'm coming in.

INT. BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS

A whimpering Ted huddles in the corner as Mary's Dad enters.

                        MARY'S DAD (cont'd)
           What seems to be the situation here? You
           [email protected]#t yourself or something?

                        TED
           I wish.

Ted motions for him to close the door and Mary's Dad obliges.

                        TED (cont'd)
           I, uh...I got it stuck.

                        MARY'S DAD
           You got what stuck?

                        TED
           It.

                        MARY'S DAD
           It?
                 (beat)
           Oh it. All right, these things happen,
           let me have a look. It's not the end of the
           world.

Mary's Dad moves closer and puts his reading glasses on.

EXT. BATHROOM DOOR - CONTINUOUS

As Mary, her Mom, and Warren listen in...

                        MARY'S DAD (O.S.)
           OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!

                        TED (O.S.)
           Shhhhhh!

INT. BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS

                        MARY'S DAD
                 (CALLS OUT)
           Shirley, get in here! You gotta see this!

                        TED
           What?! No please, sir--

                        MARY'S DAD
           She's a dental hygienist. She'll know what
           to do.

Mary's Mom comes in and closes the door behind her.

                        MARY'S MOM
           Teddy, hon, are you okay?
                 (moving closer, seeing the situation)
           OH HEAVENS TO PETE!

                        TED
           Would you shhh! Mary's gonna hear us.

                        MARY'S MOM
           Just relax, dear. Now, um...what exactly
           are we looking at here?

                        TED
                 (dizzy)
           What do you mean?

                        MARY'S MOM
                 (delicate)
           I mean is it...is it...?

                        MARY'S DAD
                 (gruff)
           Is it the frank or the beans?

                        TED
           I think a little of both.

Suddenly we hear Warren from outside the door:

                        WARREN (O.S.)
           Franks and beans!

Ted hangs his head.

EXT. BATHROOM DOOR - CONTINUOUS

Mary and Warren are huddled outside the door.

                        MARY
                 (to Warren)
           Shhhh.

                        MARY'S DAD (O.S.)
           What the hell's that bubble?

Mary REACTS to this.

INT. BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS

                        TED
           One guess.

                        MARY'S DAD
           How the hell'd you get the beans all the
           way up top like that?

                        TED
           I don't know. It's not like it was a well
           thought-out plan.

                        MARY'S MOM
           Oh my, there sure is a lot of skin coming
           through there.

                        MARY'S DAD
           I'm guessing that's what the soprano shriek
           was about, pumpkin.

                        MARY'S MOM
           I'm going to get some Bactine.

                        TED
           No, please!

Suddenly a POLICE OFFICER sticks his head in the bathroom window.

                        POLICE OFFICER
           Ho there.

                        TED
                 (humiliated)
           Oh God.

                        POLICE OFFICER
           Everything okay here? Neighbors said they
           heard a lady scream.

                        MARY'S DAD
           You're looking at him. C'mere and take a
           look at this beauty.

                        TED
           No, that's really unneces--

But the Officer's already climbing in the window. Once inside, he
turns his flashlight on Ted and WHISTLES.

                        POLICE OFFICER
           Now I've seen it all. What the hell were
           you thinking?

                        TED
                 (frustrated)
           I wasn't trying--

                        POLICE OFFICER
           Is that bubble what I think it is?

Mary's parents nod.

                        POLICE OFFICER (cont'd)
           But...how...how'd you get the zipper all
           the way to the top?

                        MARY'S DAD
           Let's just say the kid's limber.

The Officer makes a face, then rolls up his sleeves.

                        POLICE OFFICER
           Well, there's only one thing to do.

                        TED
           No, no, no, I'll be fine. I'll just hang my
           shirttail out and work on it in the
           morning.

                        POLICE OFFICER
           Look, son, this'll only hurt for a second.

The Officer reaches down and takes hold of the zipper.

                        TED
           No, no, please!

                        MARY'S MOM
           Teddy, be brave.

                        WARREN (O.S.)
           Beans and franks!

                        MARY (O.S.)
           Warren, shhh.

Defeated, Ted holds his breath and braces for the worst.

                        POLICE OFFICER
           It's just like pulling off a Band-aid.
           A-one and a-two and...

                                                       CUT TO:

                        PARAMEDIC
           We got a bleeder!

 ;D

Raiders of the Lost Ark[/font][/color]
(1981 - Spielberg)

After fending off a dozen would-be assassins in the middle of Cairo's busy streets, using his fists and trademark bullwhip, the crowd parts and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) turns to see a mountain of a man with a huge sword - his next challenge. The gigantic swordsman grins and elaborately spins his weapon, showing off his skills. The exhausted Jones sizes up the situation, calmly reaches for his revolver, and in one nonchalant shot from the hip kills the man dead. Now where is Marion?
