    What are your fave picks of humorously embarrassing physical injuries in any film genre/s, that resulted
    in someone surviving and getting bandaged or stitched.
    Only one/s I can think of so far are Jack Nicholson getting
    his nose cut in Chinatown, Ben Stiller in Something About Mary.

    Did you ever see what Jackie Chan goes through during his movies!? To be perfectly honest, i'm surprised he's still alive!
    The guy is like a living breathing Wile E Coyote!

    Greg, I have to agree on Ben Stiller's "zipper incident" in There's Something About Mary. Every time I see that, or even think about that scene, I both laugh and cringe! [​IMG]
    Damn that would hurt!!!

    I liked when Brad Pitt was bouncing off two different cars in Meet Joe Black.

    *bets someone will come on here remarking the wonderful physical torment the kid in Freddy Got Fingered went through that was painful, not funny*
    My vote goes to any of the injuries occuring in Airplane! or Kentucky Fried Movie.

    Not a movie, but I giggled pretty hard watching ER last week. Carter got punched in the nuts by a guy who was getting defibrillated by a med student who didn't check that everyone was well back from the table.

    Bruce Willis pushing Merryl Streep down the staircase, snapping her neck in "Death Becomes Her". I laughed so hard, the others in the theater looked over at me like I was the most evil person in the world.
    I thought it was funny, with her leg thrown over her head like that.

    Hugh Jackes' post reminded me of Sam Neill kicking his warden in the balls in "In the mouth of madness"
    "I'm sorry about the balls, it was a lucky shot, that's all"

    I don't know if this would count at all, but the cat getting accidentaly shot and plastered all over the wall in "Boondock saints" cracks me up every time.

    Where the hell was my head in my first post!?
    We can never forget a charactor who is so relentlessly beaten and abused, I am speaking of course, of 'Ash' from the Evil Dead series! Bruce Campbell is one of the stooges re-incarnated!

    Hmmm.. Let me think.
    Apart from some of those already mentioned I like the scene in "Hot Shots! Part Deux!" (I think) where Charlie Sheen is in a fight, in the end Charlie kicks the other guy's nuts which come out of his mouth, whereupon he (in a high pitched voice) says "You win!".
    Maybe not the best grammar, but I hope you get the picture.

    This may be a stretch, but I think the spill that Joseph Fiennes (or his stuntman) take off of the stage in Shakespeare in Love is pretty nasty and very funny.
