There are certain Movie Moments that resonate with people for a lifetime. They are the moments of dialogue that are constantly recited in pubs up and down the country every night. They are used by people to give meaning to their own experiences when telling they’re telling stories, and they can be pulled out of the holster when a friend or relative is in need of cheering up.
The great thing about many of the Funniest Movie Moments is that they never grow old. Indeed, not all of them were all that funny when you first saw them, but they get under your skin and live with you for a lifetime.
Like any of these lists of best ‘this’ or top ‘that’, there is an arbitrary, subjective nature to this one. To be quite honest, if I’d had more time today I’d have written a top 50. But in sticking with ten, I have made the job of choosing the best ones a little easier.
These ten Movie moments were not all in great movies, but they struck a chord with me, my family and my friends. I relate to some of them because they appeal to a very specific recess of my personal sense of humour. Others resonate because they remind me of a moment in my childhood. Having watched every clip dozens of times, they still make me laugh; they still make me smile.
So, be prepared to laugh your proverbials off, as I bring you the top 10 Funniest movie moments of all time… ish.
12. Dumb and Dumber – I Was Just Shaving…
The Farrely brother made some truly hilarious movies in their time, but few reached the heights of hilariousness like Dumb and Dumber did. While we all knew what Jim Carrey was capable of in the comedy stakes, nothing could have prepared us for the exceptional comedic performance delivered by Jeff Daniels. Some would say that he stole the show.
While there are countless classic scenes in this movie, the funniest belongs to just one man – Jeff Daniels. Crippled with laxatives and ready to explode, Daniels’ character Harry heads straight to the toilet of the beautiful young woman he and Lloyd are trying to impress. He just makes it, and empties his bowls amid a cacophony of whistles, pumps and rumbles. Only then does his guest inform him that the toilet is broken.
