Movie Clip Wednesday - Most Funny Scene(s)
Boxer is hosting a Movie Clip Wednesday Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme. This week's theme is Most Funny Scene! With everyone seemingly in the winter doldrums lately, I think this is an excellent theme and look forward to a lot of laughter this week.
This is really tough. There are so many great scenes out there. It's impossible for me to narrow it down to 10 let alone the funniest. So I'll give you four scenes I think are hysterical.
This one from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) is a classic. You all know it and I even have a T-shirt from this movie.
The next is a recent movie (2009) and is based on the old Don Adams series from the 60s - Get Smart. Steve Carell does an excellent Maxwell Smart (I think better than Don Adams) and this scene has me laughing so hard that tears stream down my face - and I've seen it like a dozen times.
This video couldn't be embedded, so here's the link to YouTube:
Get Smart - Crossbow scene
Then we have that low budget 1994 Kevin Smith flick - Clerks. And you all know the scene I'm talking about so I'll shut up now.
Lastly (and I'll probably take some heat for this one), this is what I think is the funniest Will Ferrell movie ever made and not because of Will Ferrell. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) is funny because of John C. Reilly. If you've never seen this movie, I highly recommend it. And this is the funniest scene (and there are a lot of them):
Here's a special bonus track in honor of Boxer getting back in the ring. It's from a movie that has the distinction of using the most F-words in a Christmas movie (147):
