The Top 10 Movie Scenes That Will Make You LOL
Whether you’re a fan of comedy or just want to laugh, you can find a scene from a movie that will make you laugh. Sometimes a scene is just a scene, and not necessarily a funny one. But when it comes to comedy, most people relate comedy to humor. And what is humor to some may not be comedy to others. So it’s difficult to define what makes a scene or movie funny. But if you want to find a movie that you or your friends will enjoy, these are the kinds of scenes you’ll want to try out.
Here, we’re going to rank the top 10 comedy scenes from this past year on Reddit.
1. The Night Before Christmas
The first place we’re going to start is The Night Before Christmas. Based on the classic poem “The Night Before Christmas,” this 2018 romantic comedy stars Robert Pattinson and Kate Winslet. If you’ve never heard of the Night Before Christmas, or the poem, no problem. This movie is probably not for you. As the saying goes, you can’t please everyone, and this is definitely a movie that will make some people laugh and some people will hate. But it’s a movie that will entertain you and your friends if you’re into rom-coms or Christmas comedy. (1)
2. Crazy Rich Asians
Speaking of rom-coms, we have another movie that will make some people laugh and some people cry. But if you or your friends enjoyed Crazy Rich Asians, then chances are, you’ll have a good time watching this 2018 romantic comedy as well. Based on the novel of the same name, this movie is about a young man named Nick Young (played by Henry Golding) who travels to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding. While there, he meets Rachel (played by Constance Wu), a beautiful and well-bred woman who happens to be one of Asia’s most famous female entrepreneurs. She’s also a billionaire who just happens to be in love with Nick. But of course, nothing in life comes easy for Nick, and he has to work hard to impress Rachel. (2)
