Which movie scene always makes you laugh?

Frankly, I’m too tired to play.  But two answers quickly come to mind:

From Dr. Strangelove:  "Well, one of our generals went and… well, he went a little funny in the head. You know…just… funny."  Also, "Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here!  This is the war room!!!"

From The Life Of Brian:  Michael Palin as the sympathetic and helpful Roman with a clipboard in his hand, asking prisoners in line: "Crucifixion?  Yes.  To the right, please".

There are several scenes in The Birdcage which make me laugh, too.

His last bout was with his prot├Ęg├Ęturned-rival Tommy Gunn in Rocky V.

Now, more than 15 years on – and 30 years since first putting on his boxing gloves – Rocky Balboa is making another comeback.

Hollywood sources confirmed last night that Sylvester Stallone has agreed to star in the sixth installment of the Rocky saga.

In Rocky VI, a lonely, poverty-stricken Balboa comes out of retirement and looks to keep his hand in with a few low-profile fights.

But his return to the ring causes a media frenzy and a promoter comes up with the idea that he should fight the heavyweight champion, Mason ‘The Line’ Dixon.

Stallone, by the way, is 60 years old.  So, you know, even I could beat him up at this point.
