Top 10 Hilarious Comedy Movie Bloopers


You thought the film was funny. Wait until you see what they cut out! Welcome to WatchMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Hilarious Comedy Movie Bloopers.



For this list we'll be looking at big screen moments caught on camera that broke the cast, went off script, or just totally derailed in the best way possible– resulting in unplanned hilarity.



#10: “The Other Guys” (2010)


Have an Arnold Palmer! On paper “pension embezzlement” doesn't exactly scream “rich comic potential.” But mix in talent like Will Ferrell, Rob Riggle, Damon Wayans Jr. and something's bound to happen – and looking at the bloopers, it did. The gag-reel is littered with alternate takes and lines – that's to be expected – but the big takeaways are this: car scenes provide hilarity; and Will Ferrell breaks everyone. Will Ferrell simply being there seems to be enough to set Mark Wahlberg off – which must have made for a long shoot – but the SNL alum even manages to crack the comedic genius that is Steve Coogan. Occasionally, Will even breaks himself... but can you blame him?


#9: “Bridesmaids” (2011)


It's a film written by funny women, and packed to the rafters with yet more funny women. Thousands of blog posts, think pieces, and thesis statements have paid tribute to both its pop culture importance and hilarity. But, for as much funny as was packed on screen, there was still funny left over. The gag-reel is loaded with the expected blown lines and prop fails, but there are some more unique gems on the table as well, like Michael Hitchcock using Kristen Wiig as a human mannequin, positioning every part of her – and we mean, every. part. of. her – just so. Or how about the mood killing blooper of Wiig and Jon Hamm in the bedroom repeating their notably unarousing sex directions?


#8: “Superbad” (2007)


“Superbad” is legendarily funny, and infinitely quotable – and yet, there was plenty of funny left on the cutting room floor. There are, naturally, blown takes – like when Jonah Hill is interrupted by the cell phone he forgot to turn off, or sneezing during a run of teenage sexual wisdom – and prop failures – like when Michael Cera's vomit machine begins gurgling – but the best of the best comes from the McLovin storyline. Aside from the underlying awkwardness of knowing Christopher Mintz-Plasse's mother is behind the camera during his sex scene - as he was underage at the time - it's Seth Rogen and Bill Hader's largely improvised ride-along rambling involving Cream of Wheat, Sherlock Holmes, and a semen database that makes the DVD worth buying.


#7: “Young Frankenstein” (1974)


We don't need to vouch for “Young Frankenstein” – it's frequently cited as one of the funniest movies of all time, has been entered into the Library of Congress National Film Registry, and listed as “significant” by the United States National Film Preservation Board. According to director and co-writer Mel Brooks, he was relegated to strictly off-camera roles so as to keep the comedy from breaking the fourth wall, but what breaks most in the bloopers is Gene Wilder. One would think having written the film, Wilder would be prepared for the silliness he and the cast had to spew, and yet clip after clip features our star barely keeping it together. Mind you, Marty Feldman didn't help much.





#6: “The Hangover” (2009)


With the likes of Ed Helms, Jeffrey Tambor, Zach Galifianakis, and Ken Jeong in the mix, you know there's funny ahead. “The Hangover” even earned itself high praise from the legendary Roger Ebert. But still, yes, there are laughs and gaffs that never made it to theatres. In them, what you really get is a look at how the leads – who were casual acquaintances at best coming into the project – barely keep it together around each other. You also get a beard full of peanut butter, an extended shot of an old man in tighty whities, documented proof that a baby in sunglasses can break Ed Helms, and Mike Tyson's odd obsession with the concept of “action!”



#5: “Smokey and the Bandit II” (1980)


Many of the bloopers here come down to Burt Reynolds confidently blowing his dialogue – such as when he mistakenly thinks Sally Field is feeding him lines rather than reading her own. Jerry Reed also wanders off script now and again, but, for a session guitarist, he holds his own. However, as they say in Hollywood: “if you have an elephant in the cast, there are going to be laughs”, and Cora – the Asian elephant who plays Charlotte – delivers, by trying to push Snowman's truck out of shot. Jackie Chan would later run with the idea of showing bloopers during the end credits, while the “when do we start” clip inexplicably made its way into the bloopers for “Anchorman”.




#4: “Rush Hour” franchise (1998-2007)


Bloopers with Jackie Chan are always sure to involve something broken: choreography, props, English, bones or a mixture of them all. The gag-reels from the “Rush Hour” franchise are no different. The first “Rush Hour” proves Chan can back flip, but can't handle a gun. With “Rush Hour 3” we learn that he thinks movie cops have been yelling “cheese!” all these years. But, while he occasionally trips over a word or two, Chris Tucker is no better in either English or Cantonese – much to Jackie's amusement. Unlike Chan, Tucker also has trouble remembering to turn off his phone, what his fish is called, and his character's partner's name.



#3: “21 Jump Street” (2012)


Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum might be the top billed, but when it comes to the blooper reel the real stars are the supporting cast. Even while blowing lines and rambling about manly tasks, Nick Offerman remains an institute of understated comedic genius. Rob Riggle's obsession with his kicks and kicking skills bring the laughs as well, but by far and away it's Ice Cube who has the best line of the entire clip. After seeing how many lines and takes the leads flubbed, you can really understand his frustration, and that just makes things all the funnier.


#2: “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” (2013)


The first “Anchorman” had enough cut material to spawn an additional film – literally. While “Anchorman 2” did not do the same, there was still plenty of laughs that didn't make it past the edit... for obvious reasons. There's Christina Applegate failing to survive Will Ferrell's silliness. There are kittens throwing down to rumble. And you better believe there are rivers of... well, there are rivers. And we also learn why you should never cast Steve Carell against Kristen Wiig. But there's more! There's concrete evidence that Paul Rudd can indeed break Will Ferrell to tears, and that everything's made just a bit better by adding Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.




Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.



“Grumpy Old Men” (1993)




“Knocked Up” (2007)




“Bruce Almighty” (2003)




“Mean Girls” (2004)



“Bowfinger” (1999)




#1: “Liar Liar” (1997)


The brains behind “Liar Liar” found that the only way to end “Liar Liar” was with even more “Liar Liar”. Featuring a very much in his comedic prime Jim Carrey as a loose with the truth lawyer denied his greatest talent, the premise was as poised for moments of laugh out loud hilarity as it was with equally hilarious botched takes. Naturally, Carrey delivered on both accounts! People, including Jim himself, just can't keep it together when Carrey goes mining for comedy gold. However, the standout may be Swoosie Kurtz' out of character burn at Carrey's expense. But with his $20 million paycheck, it likely didn't sting long.
