    While bored in quarantine I have pondered through various hidden gems that lie in comedy films. While this isn’t meant to be a thread about the quality of the movie in and of itself. Rather a particular scene in a movie that is hilarious.

    I’ll start. Paul Rudd in Wanderlust

    NSFW

    Willem Dafoe as Klaus in "The Life Aquatic"
    He's supposed to play it fairly straight, which he does, but his performance just makes me laugh

    I don't know how far to stretch "comedy" but J. K. Simmons in "Burn After Reading".

    There is a Blake Griffin scene that is so amazingly hilarious in this movie:

    Strange Wilderness got terrible reviews, and probably rightfully so. But some of the voiceover "facts" are gold.

    A couple i just rewatched that i was reminded are decent:
    30 Minutes or Less (Jesse Eisenberg/Aziz Ansari/Nick Swardson)
    Rat Race (older, but great cast and Lovitz is a gem in it)

    That was one of my most enjoyable in theater moments. For some reason I don't think the trailers did justice to how funny that movie was. I went in with low expectations and laughed my *** off for 90 minutes straight.

    I think that was the last comedy movie I saw in theaters lol and I had the same experience haha. Jonah Hill and Jack McBrayer's characters are gold too. I gotta rewatch that one soon.

    Basically anything in the Naked Gun movies is classic.

    There are so many one liners that, without paying attention, you'd miss.

    Very subtle comedy.

    The accidental Hitler scene in Rat Race is comedy genius.
