The movies themselves may or may not be comedies, or the movie in its entirety may have sucked except for "that one scene". What movies scenes do you recall and still chuckle about?

For me:

The rhinocerous scene in "Ace Ventura Pet Detective". That had me peeing my pants, and I don't care for Jim Carrey/slapstick comedy.

The mechanic scene in "Pervert!". This is not a well known movie and it's extremely stupid, but if you've seen then you know what I'm talking about. (How about a rim job?)

The scene in one of the Pink Panther movies where Clouseau goes to a castle posing as a dentist and after getting high on laughing gas his fake nose & face appendages start melting and falling off his face. Also the scene early in the film where his manservant Kato attacks him in the apartment and they trash the place.

Almost every scene in "Bad Santa". There's too many good ones.

"Day of the Wacko" (Polish, Dzien Swira) when the main character is walking through the park full of dog **** and a yipping ankle biter runs up with his back two legs on wheels...and gets kicked over the bushes. Then he punches a woman in the face.

The scene in "Falling Down" where D-Fens blows up a road construction project with a hand held rocket launcher.

The scene in "Old Men in New Cars" where Harald throws a microwave at Vuk's head for no apparent reason.

The scene in "Napolean Dynamite" where Uncle Rico throws a steak like a football and it hits Napolean in the face.

Bodywaxing scene in '40-Year Old Virgin', "You look like a man-o-lantern".

"Little Miss Sunshine" cracked me up when the girl started dancing.

"American Pie II" when Jason Biggs superglues one hand to his crotch and the other to a porno tape.

Default Will list only one of many great scenes from

Car Wash

When Franklin Ajaye's character loaned his Mickey Mouse hat to his buddy, and the guy peeked thru the bathroom window at Marsha, thereby setting up the funny climax of that scene, and the retaliation that followed.

Two scenes from Club Dread come to mind:

1) When Juan first meets Penelope. "What brings you to Pleasure Island?" "Oh, I'm on spring break, I go to Oral Roberts." "Oral Roberts? Is that anything like Anal Johnson?"

2) When Coconut Pete's bodyguard confronts the killer on the beach, and is promptly decapitated. "There's always one f---head like you, always trying to s--- in the apple pie. Well you just shat in the one apple pie that knows how to s--- back."

That entire movie leaves me sore from laughter every time. I highly recommend it.

In weekend at Bernies when Bernies dead body was being pulled behind the boat and it kept on hitting all the boueys.

In Little man when the couple was trying to take the baby/criminals temperature rectally.

The opening car scene in Up in Smoke... "How am I driving, man? I think we're parked", "Can I see your license? Isn't it there on the bumper, man?", and so on. Classic stoner humor at it's best!

Others that come to mind are the cop-chase in The Blues Brothers, the ending castle scene in Princess Bride, the Bob Barker scene in Happy Gilmore, the first 10-15 minutes of Arthur (Dudley Moore), the toga party in Animal House, and any part with Milton & his stapler in Office Space.

Just about any scene in The Gods Must Be Crazy, but I especially laughed at the one where the guy attempts to spray-clean a non-existant windshield.

Farting around the campfire in Blazing Saddles. That sequence was a huge deal at the time of the movie's release.

Hair gel. Something About Mary.

Gene Hackman in drag in The Birdcage.

The manly art of shooting birds and/or playing touch football in The Wedding Crashers

"We thought you wuz a toad" O Brother Where Art Thou (Also, "We're in a tight spot" and "My hair")

Jim Carrey talking with his butt in Ace Ventura

Monty Python's Life of Brian: "I have a fweind in Wome called Biggus Dikkus"

Turd in the pool scene in Caddyshack, as well as any scene with Rodney Dangerfield or Bill Murray

The fart scene in Blazing Saddles

The "it's good to be king" scene and the Gregory Hines slave scene in History of the Word Part II.

All of Young Frankenstein (that's Frankenshteen).

Here's where age tells it all!

Nicholson in Five Easy Pieces ordering breakfast.

Another breakfast scene in When Harry Met Sally and Sally (Meg Ryan) evokes bedroom talk at the table.
