5 very funny movie clips
Here is a short list of 5 funny movie scenes that either you have seen or not, love or love to hate, and above all...gives nostalgia from the first moment you saw it. Here is 5 clips from comedy movies I hope you will enjoy, more each week. I tried to go for clips that were unexpected and that is what I will continue to do. Mostly due to some clips being overused many many times and have now lost their kick. I hope you like these.
Thanks. See ya soon guys!
Happy Gilmore - Rhyming with Shooter
Happy Gilmore for me is easily one of Sandler's best movies. He has been in a ffew more after this of course and they were still funny, but I never felt he was able to beat this one. I personally liked The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy and Click. But the rest I have to say I am not a fan.
Happy Gilmore has so many classic scenes and the more I think about it, the more I remember. Happy Gilmore is definitely an Adam Sandler timeless classic standing side by side with Billy Madison. I wasn't a big fan of Airheads, and Little Nicky. But I must say that 50 First Dates, The Longest Yard and Mr. Deeds were all pretty good too. Just stay away from movies like Spanglish and Funny People Adam alright? Please!
Blues Brothers - Filthy mouths and bad attitudes
The Blues Brothers redefined the movie going experience. This movie was all about music, actions and comedy. In the same movie that 103 cars were wrecked and the main characters only took their glasses and hats off twice, we saw an amazing array of talented musicians and celebrity cameos. Including James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and John Candy.
Director John Landis has an incredible career didn't he? Animal House, Blues Brothers, Trading Places, Michael Jackson's Thriller, Coming to America and Beverley Hills Cop III. Landis is one the most likable directors and has a great history of successes. He made a great one here with Blues Brothers that has really stood the test of time, and is still funny, and awesome till this day.
Dumb and Dumber: The Most Annoying Sound
Dumb and Dumber is the movie that is the Jim Carrey movie that everyone seems to like, even if they don't like Carrey. He has been known for overacting and over exaggerated movements but I personally have a soft spot for this one and Ace Ventura. Mainly because I saw it when I was young and immature. At least, younger and more immature that is.
This signifies the classic comedy that the 1990's really nailed time and time again. I feel that without this movie, we may never have gotten Anchorman, Kickass, or Superbad for instance. And we sure as well wouldn't have gotten Bruce Almighty or Me, Myself and Irene.
Anchorman: 60% of the time, everytime
Anchorman is one of my all time favourites and still to this day makes me laugh. Ron Burgandy is quite possibly the funniest name for one of the funniest characters made in comedy. I feel that since this has been made, it somehow single handedly injected some life into the 2000's comedy scene and gave birth to some new stars.
I didn't think of Paul Rudd to be such a great comedic actor until I saw Friends where he played Phoebe's boyfriend Mike. So when I heard he would be in Anchorman I was delighted as he has great on screen qualities that many just don't have. Unfortunately Will Farrell is just a one trick pony, but you better believe he is damn good at that trick. Might be always the same, but he's still still pretty funny.
Keep Firing Assholes!
Spaceballs was the first ever Star Wars parody. I now know that after 35 years since the original Star Wars was released, over 350 movies have parodied it, and simply typing Star Wars into Google brings up and incredible 524 million search results. Which is more than the Catholic Church and Jesus Christ combined. This Mel Brookes classic was the beginning, and also gave birth to the several references and movie from Family Guy. It is pretty safe to say that the whole world knows part, if not all of the story of Star Wars and can recognize the characters and names within. This would not be an exact science as asking someone about a particular scene or identify who a character is. But I am sure that most people know who Yoda is, and know about the "Force".
This is due to parodies of the film and this is a good one as well. Again one of the first, and starring John Candy, Rick Moranis, Bill Pullman, John Hurt and Joan Rivers, it is definitely played just for laughs, and is intended to be a slapstick farce that Mel Brookes and many others became rather fond of.
Bill Murray would have a great choice for this, especially since he was in The Little Shop of Horrors the previous year. A film that works along the same lines. But either way, this one is worth a look.
Thanks for stopping by guys!
This was just a quick 5 clips. I have more on the way and I expect to do horror, action and Independant movies in the near future. I get a great feeling from looking at old movies and remembering clips as these all came to me at various stages in my life. I feel that will be the same for everyone, and those that love one movie may not have many followers, may love another that everyone loves. There are no right and wrong answers when watching a movie. Whatever you like, you are free to like it.
Thanks again folks. I will see you all soon.
