Movie Scenes

Movie scenes that I love:

Joe Dirt: When Joe Dirt can't understand why the firework stand only has sparklers and snakes and he lists off 30 or so different kinds of fireworks that it should have.

Happy Gilmore: When Happy fights Bob Barker

related to this:

The Firm: When Tom Cruise kicks the crap out of Wilford Brimley

Hudsucker Proxy: When Tim Robbins is first introduced to Hudsucker Inc. (049583475783--that is your work ID #, it will not be repeated...)and also when the Hula-hoop becomes an epidemic.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: When Michael Cain says he is Dr. Emil Schaufhausen and attempts to cure Steve Martin's paralysis

The Pacifier: When Vin Diesel rescues the production of The Sound of Music and volunteers to direct.

Bill & Teds: When they play 20 questions and the first guess is: "Is it a tank?" and it's right.

Elf: When Will Ferrel mistakes Miles Finch as an elf. And when he learns that Santa is coming to the store.


  1. Tommy Boy (I think): When David Spade and Chris whatshisname are driving down the freeway, listening to the Carpenters, and crying. And when the hood of the car goes flying up, blinding them to traffic. (Funnier when you've actually had it happen to you.)

    Rubin and Ed: When Crispin Glover launches his platform shoe down the alley in a showdown.

    Napoleon Dynamite: "I see you're drinking 2%. Is that because you think you're fat or something? Cuz you're not. You could be drinking 1%."

    I have trouble thinking up this kind of stuff off the top of my head.

  2. Is Tommy Boy the one where Chris Farley changes clothes in the airplane restroom?

  3. Let us not forget, Bill Murray in
    What About Bob when he's trying to save Dr. Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss) from choking and the kids are yelling "Higher! Hit him with the knee more!"

  4. "This corn is so scrumptious. Is it hand-shucked?"

  5. Envy: During political speeches, I now hear echoes of "Where does the sh@# go!"
