Tongue Serious Films That Are Funny

Has anyone ever seen any films that are supposed to be serious, or horrors, thillers, action movies but just virtually laughed at them either because they are stupidly unrealistic, or the hero character is a complete butt monkey?

I found this with Spiderman 2. My mates were really enjoying it, but all through the film, i was creasing myself because it was so corny.

Anyone else though that about Spiderman or any film for that matter?

laughing

The Exorcist and many other old movies. I laughed so hard during the Exorcist though. No serious movie has ever been close to topping that one for me.

it has to be the Swarm, which i consider one of the funniest movies ever made. funnier even that Airplane and Monty python.

Controversial, i hear you gasp!!!

Seriously, watch the film again and time the gaps between unintentional laughs. I lost count of the laughs in the first ten minutes.

Hilariously awful, truly atrocious acting and a script written by a blind man with no hands and no talent.

Yet, it's really funny.

easily the best comedy of 1978!!!

From hence forth American football shall be known as "soccer." by me.

A bunch of us went to see "Escape from LA" at the el cheapo theater, and the film broke several times during the show. Eventually, anarchy reigned, and we all just yelled and made fun of the movie for about the last 30 or 40 minutes. It was kinda like RHPS, actually...pretty fun.

The arnie film 'commando' has to be one aswell. Arnie with like half of Iraq's arsenal going against 50,000 middle eastern extremeists just to get his daughter back. Although what made this film funny is that the main bad guys were both fat and they were supposed to be special forces. And *SPOLIER* (sorry I don't know how to post them) the bad guy dies from having a pipe thrown at him. I mean come on!!!!

I'll grant you that "Commando" is a shining example from Arnie's string of mindless action hits from the 80's (the whole genre leans toward laughability), but I don't think it was quite THAT bad. He might have brought some heavy armaments to the front, but who wouldn't take such measures to rescue his daughter? Plus, he managed to improvise weapons from the toolshed at one point, remember?

As for the villains' rotundity, they were EX-Special Forces--their lack of discipline led to their weight gain, which illustrates how they weren't true heroes like Arnie. Also, I believe the 1,001 henchmen were Central American, not Middle Eastern.

Finally, the villain is not killed by having a pipe thrown at him. He is impaled on a steam pipe protruding from the wall, prompting Arnie's cutesy final line: "Let off some steam."

Post spoilers by typing the word "spoiler" (without quotes) inside this type of bracket: [ ]

Put that before the text, then "/spoiler" (without quotes) inside the same type of brackets after the text.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Like so.

If a movie is supposed to be serious and I feel like laughing at it, I usually don't laugh at all. Instead, it turns into rage, then I leave the cinema embittered and slightly warped in my outlook on human life.

I found this with The Punisher. Utterly laughable movie. Obviously I wanted to stake the producer in the eye upon my departure from the cinema.
