    A few of mine:
    I was 13 when I saw IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD at the Boston Cinerama Theater, and with all the audience laughing around me, it was easy to find this movie absolutely hysterical. Especially funny: Jonathan Winter's destrcution of the gas station.
    THE GROOVE TUBE. The moment I realized what I was looking at during the "Public Service Announcement" at the end, I lost all composure, dropped an entire boxfull of Milk Balls out onto the floor, and was on my back on between the seats. Couldn't get my breath. Hadn't happened before that and hasn't happened since.
    WAITING FOR GUFFMAN. The end credit sequence, and the MY DINNER WITH ANDRE action figures gag. I may have been the only one laughing, and maybe the fact that it was such an in-joke made it seem all the funnier.
    What are YOUR biggest movie laughs?

    The entire sequence in Romy and Michelle....not to give anything away (for those who haven't seen it)....
    with Lisa Kudrow and a certain run in with a limo. I laughed out loud for the next 20 minutes! Also a few moments later when she takes the microphone and states "I can't find my top!" Classic [​IMG]

    I've laughed pretty hard, but the last time I laught THAT hard at a movie was when I saw the unrated version of American Pie, when his dad walked in and saw him laying on the kitchen counter with his.... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]!!!!
    And their's a scene in Dumb and Dumber that kills me so bad I nearly shit my pants everytime I see it! It involves Jeff Danials, Lauren Holly, and a lightning fast- pitched snowball to the face!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Scott I agree, that movie has many great lines.
    "Hey Sandy, you look rich! I mean great."
    "Will you excuse me, I cut my foot earlier and my shoe is filling up with blood."
    "My name is Romy and I'm an alcoholic."
    "I heard he invented some kind of special rubber." "You mean like for condoms?"
    Another movie with great lines is the Albert Brooks movie "Mother".
    "Oh my goodness, a brand. What's the matter mother, don't they make Nu-Nuts?"
    "You actually named the clear hard crap that sits on top?"
    "Oh dear god, this tastes like an orange foot!"
    "I like my cheese in ounces. When they start weighing as much as a Fiat, I stop being interested."
    "We're not intimate dear, we just have sex occasionally."

    Armando, many scenes involving Jim Carrey had me pi$$ing in my pants.
    ************************************************** *********
    A couple scenes that had me laughing to the point of needing surgery:
    Dumb and Dumber: The scene where Harry (Jeff Daniels) has the sh#ts after Lloyd (Jim Carrey) put laxative in Harry's drink. The picture of Harry on the can with his legs in the air and all the sound effects had me rolling the aisle when I saw the movie in the theater back in '94.
    The Nutty Professor (modern version with Eddie Murphy): The scene where Sherman (Eddie Murphy) takes Miss Purdy (Jada Pinkett) to his family's home for dinner. All the talk and farting is a riot. "Hercules! Hercules!" I saw this one in the theater in '96 and turned blue from all the laughing.

    There's Something About Mary:
    Spoiler:The masturbation scene in the bathroom, and the subsequent answering of the door. The bodily fluid hanging from Ben Stiller's ear had me crying for the next several hours, even after the movie was over! And when he was looking for it and glances up at the bathroom ceiling!
    I just about lost all control after seeing that scene! [​IMG] I couldn't believe they got away with showing that!

    Me,Myself & Irene - That damn whisting nose bit, i couldn't stop laughing.
    Austin Powers - The steamroller scene in part one. The first time I saw it, it was the ONLY scene I thought was funny.
    Phantom Menace - I about lost it when Anakin says "I'll try spinning, that's always a good trick."
    Titanic - the ship sank!!! OK I was drunk, and not in a very "serious" place at the time.
    anything from Dumb & Dumber

    I'd have to say the entire "Frenchman" segments in Monty Python & The Holy Grail, especially the first time I saw it. I think it's just the funniest s*it I've ever seen.

    Buster Keaton - trying to get obstacles out of the way of the slowly moving train in 'The General.'
    TSAM - the opening 'franks and beans' scene and the scene where Mat Dillon tries to poison the dog
    Pulp Fiction - Travolta and Jackson arguing like a married couple after Travolta blew away their buddy in the back seat.
