1. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
TeamDaiGurren's rating:


Oldboy

I couldn't find a picture from the scene where they use the phone booth, but it's in the beginning and its a pretty important scene. The main character winds up being kidnapped because his companion was too busy talking in a phone booth to keep an eye on him.

2. Oldboy (2003)

It was in the title sequence, and is surprisingly a very memorable part of the film.

I've never seen Blow Out, nor could I find a good picture but there is a phone booth scene after John Lithgow kills another victim.

16. GoodFellas (1990)
Goodfellas is also a good one. Robert Deniro gets emotional in a phone booth after he finds out Joe Pesci isn't doing so well.

People who added this item 3610  Average listal rating (2472 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 7.3 
17. Dumb & Dumber (1994)
Dumb and Dumber has one where this nerdy guy gets punched in the face because he's bothering the assassin trying to talk to his boss in a phone booth. Quite funny.

These are movies with phone booths having to do something with the film.

Also there's a great one in Goodfellas that I couldn't find a link to...

Ha, I just laugh and laugh looking at that Ron Burgandy picture.

I voted immediately when I saw Anchorman, and the picture you chose. Though I had to recover from laughing after recalling the scene.

How about "The Matrix" phone booth scenes?
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Nov 30 8:57
There's also ao pretty good phone booth scene in Blow Out, when the killer, John Lithgow, gets another victim.
