We all love a good laugh and what better way to entertain ourselves if not with a good comedy? So why not just sit in your comfortable recliner with a cold beer in your hand and watch your favorite funny TV show or movie? Or, better yet, check out our top of the most hilarious movie scenes for a guaranteed night of laughter and good mood.
1. The debate scene from Clueless
If you grew up in the 1990s, you probably remember one of the funniest movies back then, Clueless. Starring Alicia Silverstone, the production follows the life of some privileged teens in Beverly Hills.
The main character, Cher Horowitz, is well-intentioned but superficial and takes into consideration raising the popularity of a new pupil.
The comedy received critical acclaims and was considered a box-office hit as it perfectly depicted the teenagers’ life before smartphones, tablets, and fancy laptops. One of the most iconic scenes in the movie remains Cher’s debate in class because none of her arguments made any sense.
2. Cafeteria scene in Mean Girls
Let’s stay for a while in the teenagers’ universe and remember another famous scene, this time from the movie Mean Girls. The plot of the movie revolves around a white student, played by Lindsay Lohan, who moves with her parents from South Africa and tries to make friends in high school.
In no time, she begins hanging out with the most popular girls from school, the typical privileged teenage girls who only think about boys, fashion, and staying skinny.
In the famous cafeteria scene, Lindsay Lohan’s character sits at the same table with the rest of the mean girls played by Amanda Seyfried, Rachel McAdams, and Lacey Chabert. When Cady, Lohan’s character says that she comes from Africa and she had been homeschooled before, Seyfried’s character, Karen, asks her why is she white.
3. McLovin scene in Superbad
This movie was quite the hit back in 2007 as it follows the journey of two geek teenager friends, played by Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, in their desperate quest to lose their virginity.
The fake ID scene remains one of the most memorable in the history of recent teen comedies as it introduces to the public the famous character of McLovin. The boys get fake IDs in the attempt to enter bars, and Cera’s character chooses the most bizarre name for his ID, McLovin, without even adding a first name on it.
4. The End Credits in The Hangover
Most of you are already familiar with The Hangover, the movie that reunites actors like Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms as they wake up after a night of drinking and partying in Las Vegas. And, even though the entire movie is filled with funny scenes, the end credits definitely deserve a place in our top.
In the last scene of the movie, the guys find a camera that documented the entire night, allowing them to understand how Galifianakis’ beer belly got pierced, how they managed to steal Mike Tyson’s tiger and how Helms punched singer Wayne Newton.
5. The campfire scene in The Hangover II
The second part of the movie The Hangover gathers the same talented actors in another night to remember, full of adrenaline and crazy scenarios.
The beloved characters find themselves together once again to celebrate Stu’s wedding in Bangkok. The movie includes another cameo by Mike Tyson, as well as a more significant part for actor Ken Jeong in the memorable role of Mr. Chow.
In the campfire scene on the beach, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Dog talk. When Alan says that he once saw an albino polar bear, Stu asks Alan why does he think the polar bear was albino. Alan’s iconic reply is “this one was black.”
6. Harry’s toilet scene in Dumb and Dumber
Another memorable comedy movie from the 1990s, Dumb and Dumber presents the adventures of Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey). The entire film is full of laughable moments and embarrassing situations for these two actors but what really caught our interest is the toilet scene.
Back at Mary’s place, the host tells Harry to make himself at home and, when his bowel starts to rumble, he takes the advice literally. The following moments are filled with toilet jokes and humor, so you don’t want to miss that out.
7. The waxing scene in What Women Want
What Women Want is a romantic comedy starring Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt, and Marisa Tomei. It tells the story of a womanizer who begins hearing what women think after an accident.
The most memorable scene of the movie is when all the marketing group at Gibson’s company receive specific beauty products for women they have to try.
This is the moment when the main character first gets in contact with the true struggles women have to go through to look pretty on a daily basis. And, since applying nail polish and mascara was not very challenging, Gibson decides to try waxing strips on his legs, which tests his pain resistance.
8. The waxing scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin
Stay glued to your laptop monitor for another hilarious scene of a man waxing in the comedy that turned Steve Carell into a Hollywood superstar. Carell plays the role of a nerd, Andy, who reaches the honorable age of 40 without ever “closing the deal.” Pressured by his friends, Andy decides to do everything he can to make a single mom fall in love with him.
In his attempt at becoming an appealing middle-aged man, Carell’s character undergoes a massive makeover. Obviously, the funniest moment of the movie is when he is convinced to wax off his chest hair.
9. The airplane scene in Bridesmaids
What we like about comedies is that actors are not always following the script, allowing them to express their creativity in improvisation scenes.
One of the most striking scenes from the movie Bridesmaids belongs to actress Melissa McCarthy and takes place in the airplane. She aggressively flirts with “Air Marshall John,” a character who is played by Ben Falcone, McCarthy’s husband in real life.
When talking about it, Falcone admitted that he ruined almost all the takes because he was laughing at each new grotesque pick-up line McCarthy could possibly think of.
10. “But why male models?” scene in Zoolander
Last on our list is another 100% improvised scene from comedy Zoolander starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. In the scene, David Duchovny launches in a speech about the corruption in the modeling world, and Ben Stiller, while focused on the speech, forgets his line and asks again “But why male models”?
Duchovny realizes that Stiller forgot his lines and continued improvising the scene, asking Stiller’s character “Are you serious?”
