The 50 Funniest Movie Scenes Ever (With Videos)

The 50 Funniest Movie Scenes Ever (With Videos)
OLD SCHOOL (2003)
"YOU'RE CRAZY MAN... YOU'RE CRAZY!"
The set-up: Will Ferrell's frat-house leader is idly nosing around the petting zoo at a kid's party when he accidentally shoots a horse tranquilizer straight in his neck. Stifler's be-mulleted stable boy can only exclaim "YES! THAT'S AWESOME!" as Ferrell stumbles through a drugged-up freak-out and enjoys an impromptu swim.




THE PRINCESS BRIDE (1987)
"YOU FELL VICTIM TO ONE OF THE CLASSIC BLUNDERS!"
The set-up: Rob Reiner's imaginative fairy tale saw Cary Elwes play Westley aka The Dread Pirate Roberts, who clashes with Wallace Shawn's diminutive adversary Vizzini on the way to rescuing his princess bride. Vizzini's 100% certainty of victory is what makes Westley's win so sweet, right down to the last gasp of choked laughter. Inconceivable!




AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER (2002)
"MINI-ME! OUR SHADOWS!"
The set-up: Mike Myers' pastiche of the action adventures of the swingin' '60s contains more than its fair share of sight gags, but there are none finer (or filthier) than this sublime scene from this otherwise lacklustre sequel. If the sight of Austin on Mini-Me's shoudlers isn't funny enough, the subsequent shadow show certainly is.




BLAZING SADDLES (1974)
"PRRRRP... PRRRRRP... THRRRRP..."
The set-up: Although it may seem relatively tame by today's 'dick and fart joke' standards, Mel Brooks' flatulent campfire scene had audiences rolling in the aisles at the time, thanks to some great sound effects. Cowboys will be cowboys, but hell, fellas - if you will eat so many beans...




TEAM AMERICA (2004)
"I NEED THIS, I NEED LOVE, I NEED YOU..."
The set-up: South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker moved away from 2D animation and into the scary world of marionettes for Team America. It was reportedly a tortuous set-up but made for hilarious viewing, particularly the sex-scene below, which gives new meaning to the phrase 'getting wood'.




CLERKS (1994)
"HAPPY SCRAPPY HERO PUP?"
The set-up: The convenience store characters in Kevin Smith's classic indie slacker-com care little for customer service, as evidenced in this none-more profane clip. Video store worker Randal (Jeff Anderson) reels off a list of porn movie titles ("Ass-Worshipping Rim-Jobbers...") while a parent and her young child watch in disgust.




NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (2004)
"GOT CANNED HEAT IN MY HEELS TONIGHT..."
The set-up: Cursed with a white man's afro, thick black specs and an overbite, there was no way in hell Napoleon Dynamite had any rhythm. But when he stepped on stage to support best buddy Pedro and Jamiroquai's 'Canned Heat' kicked in, Idaho's finest busted moves that belied his ultra-nerd status.




SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959)
"NOBODY'S PERFECT!"
The set-up: The finest closing line in movie history? Certainly the most recognisable. After spending the whole movie in drag, Jack Lemmon finds the gag's gone too far when he heads into the deep blue yonder with a male companion, lowering his expectations gradually until he drops the cock-shaped bombshell on his unfazed admirer.




JACKASS: THE MOVIE (2002)
"THIS IS CALLED THE 'GOLF COURSE AIRHORN'..."
The set-up: The big-screen adaptation of Jackass was, like the TV show, a collection of stupid skits, custom made to make us laugh like hyenas. For sheer puerile charm, we'll choose the Golf Course Airhorn - anything that makes stuck-up golfers lose their rag is a winner to us.




ZOOLANDER (2001)
"IT'S A WALK-OFF!"
The set-up: Ageing male model Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) is sulking because Owen Wilson's ridiculously good looking new kid on the block Hansel is "so hot right now." They clash in a nightclub and before you know it, they're striding down the catwalk in an underground 'walk-off', as adjudicated by David Bowie. Obviously.

You forgot the scene in Jumpin' Jack Flash when Whoopi Goldberg's character is listening to the Rolling Stones song trying to figure out what Mick Jagger is singing.
