What are some of your favorite comedic movie scenes? (maybe some spoiler alerts)

Some of mine (in no particular order)

1) Springtime for Hitler from (1967) The Producers.

2) Dustin Hoffman revealing he's a man in Tootsie

3) Robert Preston performing in drag at the end of Victor, Victoria

4) (Not so much a scene, but a running gag) The whole "what is it?" gag in Airplane. "We've got to get these people to a hospital!" "A hospital? What is it?" "It's a big building with sick people but that's not important right now."




I know I'm leaving some out, but these are the ones that come to mind this morning.

1. When the coke bottle falls beside Xi

an Australian bushman and his efforts to throw it away. The Gods Must be Crazy is one of the funniest films I've ever seen.

A very close second would be the "beans" scene in Blazing Saddles. I was only 21 and it was the FIRST movie I'd ever seen in a movie theater. I almost hurt myself laughing.

It was one of the funniest too for me, my brother, and a good friend. Our friend literally -- really -- fell out of his seat into theater aisle because he was laughing so hard.

I'm almost afraid to rewatch it after all these years, afraid it wouldn't hold up to that time and place. 😬

she loves slapstick so it was a fantastic experience. Sadly, it doesn't hold up well. At least to me. If you are gonna watch it again, make sure it is with someone who has not seen it. Then you can laugh along with them.

151. Mel Brooks said

That he ran into John Wayne at the studio commissary before shooting had begun, and Wayne asked him if he was really doing a cowboy movie where a bunch of them sat around a campfire and farted. Brooks said yes and handed him a script and said he would love to give Wayne a part in it. Wayne laughed and refused because his image would suffer but then added, "I'll be the first in line to see it though!"

2. Peter O'Toole walking out of the toilet stall in 'My Favorite Year',

Along with Selma Diamond's reaction. Apparently it was something that actually happened with Errol Flynn. I looked for a clip, but couldn't find one. Fortunately, for me, it's on TCM, right now.

Come to think about it, almost every Peter O'Toole scene in that move is hilarious!

85. My fave comedy scene is also from that movie.

But it's a different scene - the one where O'Toole goes to Brooklyn for dinner at Mark Linn-Baker's mother's place, and his aunt shows up late after finding something suitable to wear for dinner with Alan Swann.

SWANN: That's a lovely dress.

AUNT: Do you like it? I only wore it once before.


Don't want to be more specific - and ruin it for those who haven't yet seen the movie. To this day, every time I watch the flick, I have to hit pause after that scene - because it sends me into hysterics every time.

12. Aside from ...

almost the entirety of Some Like It Hot, in which every scene is a comedic gem, here are two (among many) that make me laugh:

(1) Irene Dunne and Cary Grant in The Awful Truth. They're a fun-loving upper class couple who have decided to divorce, and when Grant soon becomes engaged to a society woman, it doesn't sit well with Dunne. When the new fiancee telephones Grant one day, Dunne is at his apartment and picks up the phone. He explains the presence of a woman's voice by saying it is his sister visiting from abroad. The clip here is the scene where he is meeting the fiancee's high-toned, staid family and "sister" Dunne suddenly shows up at the door, dressed as a hard-drinking floozy. The dance she performs for them has stuck in my mind ever since. (Comes near end of clip.)



(2) The Flamenco scene from Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky. Sally Hawkins plays a hapless, ditzy, but endearing working-class woman, learning how to drive a car in London. Her friend convinces her to go to a Flamenco class. I don't know why, but the "my space" antics and the instructor's ultimate breakdown just crack me up.

2. Carrie Fisher's character taking a bazooka to the building where Jake and Elwood live, destroying it, and they just brush off the dust will slowly extricating themselves from the rubble.

45. Not a movie scene, but...

I was always a big fan of the TV series M*A*S*H, but after forty years or so, I've pretty much stopped. Unless Colonel Flagg is in it, then I have to watch again! Edward Winters was brilliant as Colonel Flagg!
My favourite Flagg moments:

1) The black market episode where he lets the suspect escape then has to beat himself up to make it look like an assault. Comedy gold!

2) "Alright, Pierce, I've got you now! You saved a yellow red before a white American and that's pretty pinko to me!"
"You're even boring technicolor!"

3) Col. Flagg enters Col. Potter's office wearing an Italian army officer's uniform.
"What do you want, Flagg?"
"I'm not Col. Flagg!"
"Oh? Who are you?"
"I'm Ling Pao of the Chinese Intelligence service."
"Funny, you don't look Chinese."
"Neither would Ling Pao if he was dressed like this. Follow me?"
"As far as I 'd like to."

Just thought I'd throw that in.

Pee Wee's Big Adventure - Paging Mr Herman


Elf - Several scenes


The Balad of Rickey Bobby - Baby Jesus


Walk Hard - "Dewie, I'm cut in half pretty bad"


So many funny scenes in so many funny movies to really pin down a single or maybe even a few "favorites". I'm a big fan of anything Monty Python and/or Mel Brooks. Especially Young Frankenstein. I do like the scene where Igor says "You take the blonde and I'll take the one in the turbine".

109. The Apartment with Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine

I love the whole movie. I like the scene when Shirley MacLaine character's tough angry overprotective brother in law comes to the apartment to find her. Fran and Bud are having an innocent conversation but it doesn't sound that way. Jack Lemmon's character keeps talking and digging himself into a hole until he gives up and accepts his (undeserved) fate.

BUD
You know what we're going to do
after dinner?

FRAN
The dishes?

BUD
I mean, after that?

FRAN
What?

BUD
You don't have to if you don't want
to --

FRAN
I don't?

BUD
We're going to finish that gin game.

FRAN
Oh.

BUD
So I want you to keep a clear head.

The door bell rings. Carrying his martini glass, Bud crosses
to the door, starts to open it.

BUD
Because I don't want to take
advantage of you -- the way I did
yesterday in bed.

By now the door is open, and Bud is speaking to Fran over
his shoulder. He turns, finds himself face to face with Karl
Matuschka, who is standing grimly in the doorway.

MATUSCHKA
Baxter?

BUD
Yes?

Matuschka shoves him roughly aside, strides past him toward
Fran, who has risen to her feet.

MATUSCHKA
What's with you, Fran -- did you
forget where you live?

FRAN
(to Bud)
This is my brother-in-law, Karl
Matuschka.

BUD
(friendly)
How do you do, Mr. Matuschka?

MATUSCHKA
(pushing Bud away; to Fran)
Okay, get your clothes on. I got
the cab downstairs.

BUD
Now, wait a minute. I know what
you're thinking -- but it's not as
bad as it looks --
MATUSCHKA
(shoving him away)
It's none of my business what you
do, Fran -- you're over twenty-
one -- but your sister happens to
think you're a lady.

BUD
All we were going to do is eat and
wash the dishes --

MATUSCHKA
(grabbing him)
Look, Buddy-boy -- if there wasn't
a lady present, I'd clobber you.

FRAN
(separating them)
All right, Karl -- I'll get dressed.

She exits into the bedroom, removing her dress from the
door, and closing it. Matuschka leans against the wall
beside the hall door, eyeing Bud truculently. Bud raises a
finger to remonstrate with him -- then breaks into a nervous,
ingratiating smile.

BUD
Care for a martini? Champagne?
(Matuschka continues
glaring at him)
How about a little spaghetti with
meat sauce? Made it myself.
(Matuschka just scowls)
Your sister-in-law sure is
terrific --
(realizes his mistake;
switching abruptly)
Must be murder driving a cab in New
York -- I mean, with all that
cross-town traffic --

He gestures with the martini glass, spilling the contents
over his shirtfront. Through the partly open hall door, Dr.
Dreyfuss sticks his head in.

DR. DREYFUSS
Hi, Baxter.

He steps into the apartment, passing Matuschka without
seeing him.

DR. DREYFUSS
How's the patient?

BUD
(quickly)
Oh, I'm fine, Doc.

DR. DREYFUSS
Not you -- Miss Kubelik.

MATUSCHKA
(stepping forward)
What's the matter with Miss Kubelik?

BUD
Oh, this is Mr. Matuschka -- he's
Miss Kubelik's -- he's got a cab
downstairs --

MATUSCHKA
(to Dreyfuss)
Fran been sick or something?

Dr. Dreyfuss looks at Bud.

BUD
No, no -- just had a little accident.

MATUSCHKA
(to Dreyfuss)
What does he mean, accident?

DR. DREYFUSS
Well, these things happen all the
time --

MATUSCHKA
What things?
(grabbing Dreyfuss)
Say, what kind of doctor are you,
anyway?

BUD
(hastily)
Oh, not that kind. He just gave her
a shot and pumped her stomach out --

Behind them, the bedroom door has opened, and Fran comes
out, wearing her coat over her dress.

MATUSCHKA
What for?

FRAN
(coming up)
Because I took some sleeping pills.
But I'm all right now -- so let's go.

MATUSCHKA
Why did you take sleeping pills?

BUD
(promptly)
On account of me.

MATUSCHKA
(whirling on him)
You?

BUD
Who else?

Matuschka lashes out with a left to Bud's jaw, and while he
is off balance, catches him with a right to the eye. Bud
falls back against the Christmas tree, which topples with a
crash. Fran pulls Matuschka away from him.

FRAN
Leave him alone, Karl.

She kneels beside Bud.

FRAN
(tenderly)
You fool -- you damn fool.

MATUSCHKA
Come on, Fran.

FRAN
Goodbye, Mr. Baxter.

She kisses him on the cheek, rises, starts toward the door.

FRAN
Goodbye, doctor.

She follows Matuschka out. Bud looks after her, starry-eyed.

DR. DREYFUSS
I don't want to gloat, but just
between us, you had that coming to
you.
(tilts Bud's chin up,
examines his eye)
Tch, tch, tch. Are you going to
have a shiner tomorrow. Let me get
my bag.
(he starts out)
BUD
(calling after him)
Don't bother, Doc. It doesn't hurt
a bit.

He is on Cloud Nine.

Sports reporter Walter Matthau's covering the baseball game and the phone rings:

"Oscar, it's for you!"

[Oscar turns around to take the call] "Hello?"

[Felix] "We're having franks & beans for dinner so don't eat any hot dogs"

131. A bit obscure, but in Twilight Zone the Movie

 

The bit actors who are Viet Nam era soldiers, as they are crossing a rice paddy, one says "I told you we shouldn't have killed Lt. Neidermeyer!!". Neidermeyer, of course, was destined to be fragged by his own troops the the closing credits of Animal House. My room-mate and I bust a gut laughing and we were the only ones in the theater that laughed.

There something about being the only ones to find the Easter Egg...

Any number of scene “The Odd Couple.” Two favorites of mine are Walter Matthau’s lines about having green sandwiches and brown sandwiches, and taking 2 weeks (can’t remember the exact number) to figure out that the FU at the bottom of Felix’s little notes didn’t mean Fuck You.

139. I've got two:

1. John Candy in Trains, Planes and Automobiles. The cigarette butt catching the upholstery on fire just as Candy's coat gets caught on the seat, etc. I was in tears first time I saw that.

2. John Belushi in Animal House. With him jogging the ladder on the sorority house scene. The whole theater went nuts at that.

3. One more: I don't remember the name for sure, maybe "A Fish Called Wanda". Where the girlfriend comes over, uses the bathroom, discovers and uses some "hair gel" that is really some ejaculate. What a hoot that was.

149. Some oldies, but goodies

"Big Trouble," from a book by Dave Barry, starring Tim Allen, Rene Russo, Stanley Tucci, Dennis Farina, Omar Epps, Jason Lee, Tom Sizemore, Janeane Garofalo, Heavy D, Johnny Knoxville, Zooey Deschanel and a lot of cameos. The story involves the Mob, a nuclear bomb, Russians, a newly-divorced man, a FSU vs. UofF football game, a garbage disposal, the Miami PD, an unhappy housewife, TSA, hit men, the FBI, the Miami Airport, Joes' Stone Crabs (the restaurant), goats, a confused dog and a psychedelic toad. When I am in desperate need of a 90 minute laugh fest, this is the DVD that always does it for me.

"Airplane"

"Captain Ron," with Martin Short, Marykay Place and Kurt Russell. Pirates, an ancient sailboat, Cuba, guerillas, and a shower scene that will make you howl.

"The Ref," with Dennis Leary. Nuff said.

"Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels."

"Spinal Tap."

"Cobra," it's not a comedy, it's a LAPD detective, good guys vs. bad guys movie. It's a vehicle for Stallone to look tough in, but the acting is SO OVER THE TOP, that it's a laugh out loud riot.

"Police Squad" all three of them. Leslie Nielson had great comedy timing. Every time.

164. From "The Birdcage"

Gene Hackman playing Sen. Kevin Keeley
Nathan Lane, in drag, plays the mother of Val, who's going to marry Hackman's daughter.
Hackman likes "her" a lot; but after Val's real mother shows up, Hackman becomes confused.
His wife, Louise Keeley, tried to tell him that Nathan Lane isn't Val's mother, and isn't even a woman, but Hackman, as Kevin Keeley, still doesn't get it.

SEN. KEELEY
"I don't understand!"

LOUISE KEELEY
"He's a man..They're both men!"

SEN KEELEY
"Can't be, you can't be Jewish"

LOUISE KEELEY
"No, Kavin, Kevin, Kevin..THIS is a man!

SEN. KEELEY
"What?'

LOUISE KEELEY pulls off Nathan Lane's wig
"They're both MEN"

SEN. KEELEY
"I don't understand"
