Blogging from A to Z Challenge

Theme: Humor in film -- what makes me laugh:


Laughter is contagious and I catch a fit of laughter watching these scenes...

The Mary Poppins (1964) "I love to laugh" scene found here.

Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers) and Charles Dreyfus (Herbert Lom) in The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976), both affected by laughing gas.

George McFly's (Crispin Glover) weird laugh while watching The Honeymooners in Back to the Future (1985) found here.

And my favorite of all... (I included this clip in two other posts here and here)... it's Walter's (Tom Hanks) laugh in The Money Pit (1986).

The laughter begins at approx. 2:17

The funny laugher in each of those scenes makes me laugh every...single...time!

Is there a scene of laughter that tickles you?


  1. I love that scene from "Mary Poppins." Ed Wynn was one of the funniest guys around.

    Can't think of a laughter scene from a movie, but my wife was at a religious conference once, and she said everyone just spontaneously started laughing. Was it the movement of the Holy Spirit, or just the natural reaction to hearing someone laugh? Who cares?

  2. Hahaha, funny scenes!! You are right, laughter is contagious, just as a yawn is too ;)

  3. @John Holton ... Ed Wynn certainly played some fun characters, huh!

    That would be interesting to experience spontaneous laughter at a religious conference... being moved to laugh would certainly lift my spirit.

  4. @Frederique ... Thanks... now I'm yawning! hahahaha

  5. I love George's laugh in that scene in Back to the Future too! It's perfect for us to see just why Marty is so embarrassed of his family. Crispin Glover did a great job in his role.

  6. @Sue ... It's awesome to see the change in George when Marty gets back to his present day. Makes us think about the decisions and events in our past and how they might have affected us.
