Today’s post is just a nonsensical look at some of my favorite funny movie clips.
I’ve watched a lot of comedies and so called comedies over the years and here are some of the clips that still buzz around in my head. I thought I would share five of them with you.
Zero Point Zero
Animal House has a mountain of favorite scenes for me but this one always comes to mind. The pencils are what makes the scene for me as well as Dean Wormer’s delivery of Bluto’s perfect grade point average.
$14 Dollars The Hard Way
Everyone has their favorite lines from Caddyshack but this one has always been my favorite. No one could deliver this one liner like Rodney Dangerfield.
Where Are The White Women At
They sure couldn’t make this movie today. The PC world would explode at the seams. I guess most people would remember the campfire fart scene but this is the one I think of when you mention Blazing Saddles. Remember this one was released in February of 1974.
Moley Russell’s Wart
Uncle Buck is a 1980’s John Hughes movie that for some reason I’ll watch over and over again. I’ve always liked John Candy, especially in Second City TV (Doctor Tongue, Johnny LaRue), but this is the one scene I’ll always remember. How about the look on the kid’s face when he hears Buck Russell letting the assistant principal have it.
Drive Monkey Drive
I discovered Grandma’s Boy by accident but it’s become one of my favorite comedies that was meant for the generation raised on video games. You can’t go wrong with a chimpanzee. Every time I think of Grandma’s Boy I think of these three words.
Well there they, are some of my favorite clips from some of my favorite comedies. Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
