What parts of the movies have made you literally LOL? Whether it was in a theatre (where laughs seem to come easier - for me, at least), or at home. Are there any parts that never fail to make you laugh?

This is a question I'm going to have to ponder.

I don't literally LOL when something funny happens in a movie, I rarely do that. Instead I mostly chuckle and I had plenty of that with Bond films. Like when Bond leaves a corpse on the back seat of his car and tells the guard "make sure he doesn't get away" .

My biggest laugh, or chuckle, for CR was definitely this bit:

"I'm Mr. Arlington Beech, professional gambler, and you're Miss Stephanie Broadchest."
"I am not!"
"You're gonna have to trust me on this."

But those examples are really all down to how Connery and Craig delivered them.

I do hope we get some good zingers in SF. There were some amusing moments in QOS, but too few and far between. I don't remember any laughing in theaters beyond the "we just won the lottery" bit. It'll be nice to have some really good laughs in a Bond film again.

As long as they don't involve gawking tourists and winking pigeons. :evil:

I tend to laugh out loud with appreciation at the audacity of a stunt, such as TSWLM's parachute jump, or GE's diving after the falling plane.

Moments that you're supposed to laugh at - Jaws flapping his arms for instance - I leave to others.

Although I'm not a big fan of DAF...that sound Mr. Wint makes when his coat is pulled up between his legs just before he is flipped to death is possibly the best scene in the whole movie...

Ya know, that scene in MR actually makes me chuckle. I can't help it, the whole thing is so absurd it's hard to watch it with a stone face.

"We are teachers on sabbattical and we have just won the lottery."

I just love the way Bond takes the time to repeat his official cover, modify it in such a preposterous way and deliver it all in such a detached way.

"We just won the lottery"--how bloody clever. There is little in QOS that is amusing, let alone funny.

Watched LALD a coupla weeks ago and was roaring at JDubya's antics. He's possibly the funniest character in all of Bond. Then again, it helps to have Manky writing your lines.

It's not the line, it's the delivery. Bond is upgrading himself to a five-star hotel simply because he can, and he clearly doesn't care how preoposterous the reason he gives to the concierge is.

Long live "Man with Wine".

Would have loved him showing up in Venice in CR, and in the foot chase in QOS. :tongue:

I remember when Saunders would frequently reference "man with wine" over at Mi6. laugh

Too bad he didn't find this place. Or maybe he did and stopped posting?

Man With Wine is perhaps the most relatable figure in the Bond canon.

He didn't post, and ended up being automatically deleted. :(

I wish Man with Wine had been sitting in the cavern in QOS when Bond and Camille came dropping in.

That was in Bolivia - Man With Wine does all his tippling and apparent hallucinating in Italy.

He had a cousin in India, though, and another in San Francisco, so maybe he could have a Bolivian relative as well - a taxi driver, perhaps?

I know I felt like downing a bottle o' red at the cinema when I saw CGI Smeagol plummeting to earth.

I always howl a bit o' laffter when Plenty utters her "like a monkey handles coconuts line." Tits and wits to match.

To match? I always felt her tits...no, that's not right - I always thought her tits outwieghed her wits by a wide margin (PDI).

Sadly, they both got watered down.

Plenty's tits and Manky's wits, I guess. A perfect match.
