Post Moments that just crack you up
#1 The last 10 minutes of Crank: High Voltage, when Chev climbs the telephone pole, electrically charges himself, then goes on the warpath, before he imagines Bai Ling is Amy Smart to the tune of "Keep on Loving You" by REO Speedwagon.

F*cking hell, I actually cried laughing the first time I saw that scene. It's outta this fricking world! I'd love to get inside the collective head of Nevaldine/Taylor for a day. Crank 2 was one of those films I had high expectations that were actually surpassed.


#2 There could be any of a number of moments from the Big Lebowski, but I love the scene when The Dude spots Jacky Treehorn scriblling something on a piece of notepaper, and then (in some ironic kind of tribute to detective noir) scribbles over to reveal a man with oversized (or average in my case) genitalia. Brilliant stuff!

Not sure if you mean intentional or unintentional comedy. If intentional, then my favorites are:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
1) (Black) Bart (Cleavon Little) in Blazing Saddles trying to get the attention and pursuit of an assortment of bad dudes (klansmen, Nazi's, skinheads, biker gang types) pops out from behind a nearby rock and asks "Where are the white woman at?"

2). O.J. Simpson's cop character in Naked Gun moving in on a bust and goes to kick in the door but only his foot goes through. While he tries to free himself all the bad guys calmly pull, load, and cock their weapons and are ready en mass when he finally makes it through the door .

3. The peasant in a commune arguing with King Arthur about the legitimacy of his authority in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. In the same film, King Arthur coming upon a castle only to find that it is occupied by French soldiers.


These are old movies, so I'm pretty sure spoilers aren't a problem, but if for some reason you haven't seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Naked Gun, or Blazing Saddles then don't look.

One man goes to fight him and he comes out this line
" I have the perfect oinment for that mark on the side of your face"
to which the heavy replies
" What mark"

Very funny line.

Very funny line.

I forgot which seagal film that was from. Another hilarious moment is in On Deadly Ground where he takes on a racist by playing a twisted version of the hand-slap game, and everytime the guy loses, he gets punched.

Hell, I think Seagal may be one of the best underappreciated actors ever. Who else could deliver a line like this without laughing:

No one, I tell you.

I also loved the scene in Jack Reacher where a bunch of goons try to beat up Reacher in a bathroom but because of the confined space, they end up hitting each other by accident instead.

The scene in Sin City where Benicio Del Toro doesn't realize the gun is jammed and fires and the hammer sticks in his head. Later on Clive Owen observes

Quote:
She doesn't chop his head off. She makes a Pez Dispenser out of him.

You only find this one on television:

"Gimme the freakin' keys, you godmother!"

I watched the King's Speech the other night.
There is a scene where albert is telling him that there is no way he can thank hoim for all he has done.
Logue just replies " what about a knighthood"

Very funny line during a very touching moment.

That still can't beat 'See what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps?' :D

Any number of scenes in Tommy Boy, but two stick out: the gas station scene is so perfectly edited and then it ends on Farley saying "What'd you do?" And the housekeeping scene.

The elevator scene in Liar Liar

The dog scenes in Theres Something About Mary"

Arnie in Nine Months

the bear greeting the kids in Borat

Though it's kind of mediocre as a whole, Liar Liar has a lot of great moments in it. It makes me wonder how good it could have been if they'd ditched the family-oriented subplot and gotten really vicious with it. A satire about a lawyer who can't lie? I'd be first in line.

In line with the Steven Seagal moment mentioned earlier:

"What's that on your face?" from the ditch shot in Army Of Darkness

"Hey, that man's going to throw something" from the siege scene in Morons From Outer Space

Laugh at both of those every time I see them.
