This one's goes out to the Canadian Grateful Dead fans. New Speedway Boogie from the movie Festival Express about a multi band train ride across Canada in 1970. Who said Canadian kids don't know how to boogie? ;D

That is so hilarious!! And I didn't know Jim Carrey was from the upper latitudes.

This is one that I am always hesitant to bring out, but I think you all may be able to handle it.

"Simon Birch" was a movie about a charming little boy with some kind of growth-related disability.  It was a little sappy, but not terrible.  There is, however, this one scene in the movie (it's 3:38 long) involving Ashley Judd that when viewed in the right way can be staggeringly humorous.

I first discovered the humor in this scene when I orginally saw the movie in the theater with my wife.  My wife is not easily amused and a lot of things I find funny she can sit through stone faced.  However, when we saw this scene she immediately began laughing uncontrollably and no matter how hard she tried she couldn't stop.  No one else in the theater had this response, and my wife tried to quiet herself down, but she couldn't.  It was like she was being tickled by some invisible force and her laughter became more and more intense.  Finally, I leaned over and suggested that she step outside until it passed.  She got up and walked out of the theater, struggling to keep her laughter in check.  After she had left the theater, though, she apparently overestimated the soundproofing of the theater against outside noise, and I could hear her in the lobby of the theater laughing uncontrollably once again.  Occasionally, I would hear the door of the theater open and I sensed my wife was trying to re-enter the theater, but the laughter would start up again and she would have to step out.

It was a weird thing.  She's never had that happen before or since.  It probably also depends on how you feel about Ashley Judd.

I'm not going to lie, I laughed pretty hard...but then again I'm a horrible person  ;D

The way she was walking before the baseball hit her was fairly amusing, "Oh look at me, aren't I a precious thing, the world is so wonderful"...BAM!...DEAD.  But it's strange your wife would find it that funny.  There must be some deep-seated hatred of Ashley Judd.

How do you like the way the Little League coach pronounced her dead like 15 seconds after she had been hit?  If I had been in the crowd I might have said something like: "Maybe we should go ahead and call an ambulance anyway, just to be sure."

I don't think they knew about concussions back in the 60's.  Sucks to be her!

Nicholson's typewriter tantrum in "The Shining" is outstanding (2:31):

Speaking of The Shining, here's how the film would have looked as a feel-good comedy (1:25):

Did you guys watch any of the other videos that are recommended as similar?  Pretty funny remade trailers.

Haha! That was good stuff.  Oh Peter Gabriel, you can make anything happy and joyful.

The "Doctor" thread reminded me of this MadTV skit.  I didn't think it was appropriate for that thread, so I'm throwing it in here.  I bet the doctors/therapists on here wish they could do this (6:16):
