The 10 Funniest Movie Moments of All-Time

I know I’ve sung their praises before, but CineFix has outdone themselves with their list of the 10 Funniest Movie Moments.  Like most CineFix lists, it breaks each item down by a certain category (the set-up, the delivery, the performance, the situation, etc.) and it makes for a really cool way to look at some of the funniest moments in screen history.  I don’t review a lot of comedies (or even watch them), because humor is so completely subjective that it’s impossible to analytically break down what made me laugh.  Besides, the more you pick apart humor the more you kill it.  It works or it doesn’t.  It’s binary.  Also, comedies are not at a high ebb.  Last year, my two favorite comedies were Central Intelligence and Office Christmas Party and neither of those are classics; just the ones that made me laugh most.  Here you have 23 minutes of solid gold.  So sit back, get ready to revisit some of filmdom’s funniest moments and enjoy.  This is a hard-to-argue with list.  You guys really outdid yourselves!  God bless, CineFix!

  1. Like

  2. I don’t nessasarily consider either of those contenders for funniest of all time, I just remember laughing long and loud. Wedding Singer was before I learned to loathe Adam Sandler.

    I’m surprised there was no reference in the video you posted to the Day-o scene from Beeetlejuice.


  3. The Princess Bride also holds up well for its age. Life of Brian too… I remember laughing at the jokes in Top Secret when that came out but that isn’t one I’d find funny now.
