Scenes in films that really make you laugh

This doesn't seem to happen to me much anymore, not sure if I find things less funny, but I can think of a couple of times in movies in recent years where I've really laughed hard at a scene.

1. Ted 2 - Pretty poor sequel, but the scene where they're shouting out sad suggestions in the improv.
2. 22 Jump Street - Where Ice Cube finds out JH is screwing his daughter.

Maybe it's just me, but these scenes really make me properly laugh out loud when I see them.

Anyone got any others?

Blazing Saddles, the beans/farting scene. I was on the floor laughing so hard I could not breath, I was just in hysterics. No other scene in any film got me so hard

Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Still has me belly laughing now even after watching it every year for past 20 years.

Top 3 scenes for me...

1 - "Those aren't pillows"
2 - "Train don't run out of Wichita"
3 - The car rental scene

Most scenes in Dumb & Dumber, but particularly the "most annoying sound in the world" bit, and also where he lamps that snowball right in her face.

William Shatner's emergence from the 'screen' in Airplane 2. I hadn't expected that and burst out laughing, annoying several others around me.

The "Lassie" part of Porky's oh, and the discission about the "police-type line-up."

For some reason I lost it watching the "wrong phone at dinner" scene in The Night Before. Tears and everything.

Although I'm not a huge WF fan, Will Ferrell's character in Wedding Crashers, talking about living the dream and picking up women at funerals. The bit about the hang-gliding accident just tickles me.

Lots of scenes in Life of Brian but Biggus Dickus tops the lot . Even Michael Palin looks like he's fighting back the giggles in it.

Yeh didn't mention the MP films as so many good laughs, in HG got to be Arthur discussing how he became King (strange women lying in ponds, distributing swords...) and possibly the stoning for me in LoB.

Here in SUnny Southend our favourite Nightclub Tots has just closed, when I used to go back in the 90s they regularly showed a clip of Jim Carrey on the pull with his two friends (which I believe was taken from the film at Night at the Roxbury) absoulutely funny every time I saw it.

Dumb and Dumber is one of those movies which will make me laugh out loud no matter how many times I see it. The casting, writing and tone are all just spot on, its genius.

Another vote for Planes, Trains & Automobiles too.

Here it is:

Alas according to this comment:

If I did my research correctly, this particular episode of "The Roxbury Guys" recurring sketch originally aired on Saturday Night Live (SNL) on May 18, 1996 with Jim Carrey as the show's guest host. It marked the first time that Haddaway's hit song "What Is Love?" was used in the sketch, as well as the first time that the show's guest host (Carrey) was featured as the third member of "The Roxbury Guys". It was the 20th and final episode of Saturday Night Live (SNL) to air during the show's 21st season (406th episode overall since SNL's beginning in 1975).


It looks like it was from telly and not the film Night at the Roxbury, sounds like Jim didn't make it to the film.

So apologies, wasn't a correct suggestion.

Agree with plenty here, although I've not seen 'A Night at the Roxbury' or the 'The Money Pit' (despite Hanks+Long=) and will add -

I remember crying with laughter at several scenes in 'Something About Mary', even the second time I saw it some years later.

Plus the original 'Bedazzled (1967)' (Peter Cook & Dudley Moore) which I watched for the only time at Uni in 1988 ... (googling ... I can still remember the raspberry prompted by the sixth wish situation!)

Too many scene in Monty Python films to list, but there are quite a few scenes in Farrally Brothers movies get me everytime.

Kingpin - the landlady scenes, and when Roy is staying on Isaacs family farm.

Something about Mary - the zip scene, and then when he drugs and thinks he's killed Magdas dog.

The Heartbreak Kid - Applying suncream to his sunburnt wife, the visit to the mexican village, and then the jellyfish scene.

Another that had me in tears, and still gets me every time is the scene in Four Lions when one of them is explaining how he's managed to buy so many bottle of bleach.
