    Hi

    I seem to keep getting reminded recently of the "What have the Romans ever done for us?" bit in Life of Brian. Must be the funniest bit I can remember in a movie (on so many levels). Are there any funnier scenes though that I should know about or be reminded about that you guys can think of?

    Cheers,

    RDB :D

    Hi RDB,

    Practically any scene in "Life Of Brian" is a classic, but especially:
    - the Judean Peoples Front scene in the amphitheatre audience
    - the prison cell scene
    - the "line on the left, one cross each" / "I can go free" scene
    - the "haggling" scene
    - the "Whom would you have me welease" / "Release Wodewick" scene
    - the audience with Brian's mum / "He's not the Messiah..." scene
    - the "He is the Messiah, He is, He is!" scene

    ... and so on, and so forth. I think it's the only comedy film I've ever seen, in which there is not a single scene or frame, that doesn't have something funny being said, acted out or shown in the background! :rotfl: A superb movie, and eminently quotable. :)

    There are many more - but the first one that came into my mind.

    The staged police line up in The Usual Suspects, when they have to step forward and say the line. The all crack up. I still crack up thinking about it and was in stitches when I first watched it and is still funny on repeated viewing.

    If you watch the extra's from the movie, it was real laughing and they couldn't stop.....add's to it IMO.

    Have to agree with that. Can't bring myself to buy it on DVD though because I've seen it so many trimes. I still don't get what certain Christian elements have against it though (guy at my work refuses to watch it). I can't even work out which bits are meant to be blasphemous.

    A few things had me in tears, one being Mike Myers "HEEED" attack on his son in So I Married an Axe Murderer, also South Park the Movie - Terence and Philip's song telling someone to be quiet and saying they have relations with their Uncle.

    Usually Will Ferrell's actions in any of his movies usually lead to genuine laughter (not polite laughter like you usually hear in the cinema) :)

    Another vote for Life of Brian being funniest ever but on same Monty Pythin theme the Black night fight in Quest for Holy Grail is funny as hell too " It's only a Flesh Wound!"

    Funny yet amazingly cringeworthy is Napoleon Dynamites Dance in the movie of the same name.........

    These are just random ramblings, but:
    Overall, I really enjoy the silliness of Kung Fu Hustle, can't wait for the sequel.:thumbsup:

    American Pie: The Wedding- where Stifler finds out that he accidentally had his way with Jim's grandma.

    Godfather 2: Clemenza says to Paulie (who has just deep-sixed someone): "Leave the gun- take the cannolis":D

    Animal House: John Beluchi's facial expressions:clap:

    I'm pretty sure the bit where he drops his sandal is incredibly offensive, it's also the only part that made me laugh.

    Two of the funniest scenes I can think of are firstly, Young Frankenstein when the blind man sets the monsters thumb on fire thinking it's a cigar. Secondly, Pink panter (not sure which one), where Clouseau put's his finger thought a hole in the ceiling where it gets stood on and he kicks away the tables he is standing on.

    Nearly died of laughter.

    In recent years the vomit scene in Team America had me in stitches.

    Also ..........

    Gary: OK, a limosine that can fly. Now I have seen everything.

    Spottswoode: Really? Have you seen a man eat his own head?

    Gary: No.

    Spottswoode: So then, you haven't seen everything.

    Woody Allen's face in 'Crimes & Misdemeanours' when his sister tells him what her date did to her after tying her to the bed.

    The visual gag at the start of 'Good Morning Boys' where Will Hay appears through the wrong door.

    Michael Caine sees 'a bit of ankle' in 'The Wrong Box'.

    Staff v Pupils rugby match in in Pythin's 'The Meaning Of Life'.

    It's surely got to be the bit where the old man says "That piece of halibut was good enough for Jehovah". It has to be as even John Cleese accused him of blaspheming. :D:devil:

    I quite like Dodgeball for various funny scenes. Mainly though it's seeing a guy with glasses getting hit on the head with a wrench.

    Fantastic bit that...fantastic!

    Helpful driver: "You're going the wrong way"
    Steve Martin/John Candy: "How does he know which way we're going"

    and then, when they get stopped by the policeman, ROFL.

    For me it's a scene from It's A Gift, though there are many to choose from in this film.

    W.C. Fields, after a day of being henpecked by his wife, finally gets to bed. After getting to sleep the phone rings and she tells him to get it. He begrudginly gets out of bed and picks the phone up. He asks who it is and they ask him if they are through to the maternity hospital. He says "no this is not the maternity hospital" and puts the phone down. He slowly gets back into bed and pulls the covers over him. After about 10 seconds his wife asks who was on the phone and he says it was a wrong number. "A wrong number?" she asks. He says "yes, they wanted the maternity hospital". There's a pause then his wife says "funny they should be ringing you from the maternity hospital!".

    :clap::clap: If you've not seen this film I can highly recommend it.

    Just found this clip of it: www.youtube.com:80/watch?v=NBFLn8zvsjY

    the boxing ring scene in bad santa..i laughed so much i had to stop the dvd.

    this is a strange one but the way brad pitt falls off the bike indoors in fight club cracks me up everytime.

    any scene from airplane 1&2,waynes world 1&2,austin powers trilogy.

    i do love a good comedy to lift the mood.

    The first scene with Inspector Todd in 'Beverly Hills Cop' has me on the floor every time. He's the best archetypal, overly-hysterical police inspector there has ever been in a cop movie. Plus, the way Axel Foley manages to always come out on top in any situation (for example, when he sneaks into the customs warehouse and pretends to be an inspector) is not only indicative of great writing and acting but is also extremely funny.

    Heres a few of my faves;

    Practically any scene from Withnail and I.

    Monty's big moment gets my top spot (don't want to spoil it in case theres any poor soul left that hasn't actually seen it). Most are lol funny though, washing up, the pub, Geoff Wode, the gamekeeper, the tea room, drink driving test, the fear and loads more plus so many memorable one liners and quotes "here hare here", "you can't threaten me with a dead fish", "what £$%^&* said that". Add in great music, superb writing and acting and you've got an all time classic.

    The fork scene with 'Ruprick' from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
    The pizz taking stutter scene from A fish Called Wanda - cruel but so funny.
    Cheech and Chongs Up in Smoke - The whole first 25 minutes and the Ajax scene. :rotfl:
    Wrestling the invisible man wearing a nappy from another cheech & chong film (can't remember which one).
    Loads from the third Austin Powers film Goldmember, including moley, it's a hard knock life, fook me & fook yu, behind the modesty screen, smoke and a pancake and fat b$%&£*d.
