My Favorite Funny Movie Scenes
As one who LOVES watching funny movies, I'm kind of hard to please when it comes to laughing out loud. I might find something funny, but to laugh to the point of crying takes scenes like the following for me to "lose it."
From Beetlejuice, starring Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton, Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones, and Winona Ryder, comes this scene: At a dinner party, given by the Deetz parents (played by Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones), daughter, Lydia (played by Winona Ryder), announces that ghosts live in the attic. Somebody else haunts the abode too, though, and he, Beetlejuice (played by Michael Keaton), with the help of an unexpected leap into the Banana Boat song, gives guests, hosts, and viewers a memorable experience.
From Three Fugitives, starring Nick Nolte, Martin Short, Sarah Rowland Doroff, and James Earl Jones, is this scene (which appears at the beginning of the movie, but near the end of this clip): Ned Perry (played by Martin Short), a fumbling first-time thief, robs a bank to get money to pay for his daughter's much needed therapy. When the teller accidentally throws the bag onto a chandelier, Perry demands that he retrieve it. The wig scene is funny too.
Little Miss Sunshine, starring Abigail Breslin, Greg Kinnear, Paul Dano, Alan Arkin, Toni Collette, and Steve Carrell is funny throughout, but the last scene is laugh out loud. Abigail (Breslin) has entered the Little Miss Sunshine beauty competition. Grandpa Edwin Hoover (Arkin), before he died, taught Abigail her pageant routine. The rest of the family knew nothing about the routine until the day of the pageant. Unlike any beauty pageant anybody has ever seen, Little Miss Sunshine gives a slap in the face to child beauty pageants, where little girls are made up to look like mannequins.
Bruce Almighty, starring Jim Carrey as Bruce Nolan, Morgan Freeman as God, Jennifer Aniston as Grace Connelly, and Steve Carrell as Evan Baxter, tops my list as probably the funniest movie scene EVER (to me). Bruce Nolan (Carrey) had told God that he would like a chance to play God. God grants his wish, but instead of being God-like, because he was upset about Evan Baxter (Carrell) getting the role of co-anchor instead of himself, Nolan, with his new abilities, decides to make Baxter his puppet.
Hope you enjoyed my laugh out loud funny scenes. I'd love to see yours.
