The threat of male-dominated, married secretary Doralee Rhodes (Dolly Parton), after being ogled and harassed one too many times, to get her gun and change her lecherous, chauvinistic corporate boss Franklin M. Hart (Dabney Coleman) "from a rooster to a hen with one shot!"; also the three "old fashioned ladies' pot party" fantasies about killing Hart in various ways - each one labeling him as "a lying, sexist, egotistical, hypocritical bigot", including new secretary Judy Bernly's (Jan Fonda) plan to hunt him down with a rifle, Violet Newstead's (Lily Tomlin) Snow White fantasy to kill Hart with poisoned coffee, and Doralee's plan to hog-tie him and put him on a spit - and the film's final caption: "Franklin Hart was abducted by a tribe of Amazons in the Brazilian jungle and was never heard from again"

With rising star Steve Carell as nerdy, middle-aged virginal electronics super-store worker Andy Stitzer, with hobbies (such as action-figure and comic books collecting and watching "Survivor" with his elderly neighbors, or making the perfect egg-salad sandwich), whose sex-obsessed store salesmen buddies keep offering him sex advice ("You know what's a fun game?...Take three Excedrin PMs and you see if you can whack off before you fall asleep. You always win - the best part about the game") and decide that it's time for him to score and advise him to act tough ("like David Caruso in Jade") - so he starts to date free-spirited 40 year-old divorced mother of three Trish (Catherine Keener) who abides by a no-sex policy for 20 dates; funny gags include Andy's first experience on using a condom - even under the covers, his drive home with drunken date Nicky (Leslie Mann), his date with sexaholic nymphomaniacal bookstore clerk named Beth (Elizabeth Banks) who finds pleasure for herself in the bathtub, a speed-dating session, and Andy's botched chest-waxing treatment; also the scene of verbal battle during a game of Mortal Kombat between David and Cal (Paul Rudd and Seth Rogan) about how one knows the other one is homosexual: ("You know how I know that you're gay?...You like the movie Maid in Manhattan...I saw you make a spinach dip in a loaf of sourdough bread once....You have a red and gold bumper sticker on your car that says 'I love it when balls are in my face'...Because you macramed yourself a pair of jean shorts...")

A classic horror-comedy hybrid film about two Florida train station baggage handling clerks: Chick Young (Bud Abbott) and Wilbur Grey (Lou Costello), who are being pursued by a multitude of Universal's horror characters (Frankenstein (Glenn Strange), Dracula (Bela Lugosi), Wolfman (Lon Chaney, Jr.), etc.) that they unknowingly deliver in crates to McDougals' House of Horror; the many scenes of Wilbur foolishly in love with evil mad lady scientist Dr. Sandra Mornay (Lenore Aubert) and going hysterically beserk with terror and fright - especially in the revolving door sequence; and the hilarious response by Wilbur to Larry Talbot's admission of lycanthropy (turning into a beast in the light of a full moon): "You and 20 million other guys"; and the costume ball sequence in which the monsters are unnoticed among the guests

The lengthy opening sequence (with the characters appearing on-screen and then alternating with voice-over dialogue over white-on-black title credits) in which slobbish, sexist, vulgar, loud-mouthed and self-assured pal Bernie Litko (James Belushi) and co-worker pal Danny Martin (Rob Lowe) are walking around various locales in Chicago as Bernie tells his enthralled friend about his previous night's outrageous and wild sexual adventure, involving, among other things, a 19 or 20 year-old woman at a restaurant for whom he bought a pack of Viceroy cigarettes - who may or may not be a 'pro' - who decides they should both take a shower after inviting him up to her room to pay him back - leading to a welcomed towel flick and her wearing of a World War II flak suit - who then sets herself on fire with a can of gasoline during an aerial bomber reenactment, screams: "Do it now, for the love of Christ!" and causes the arrival of firemen from the Chicago Fire Department

Adam's Rib (1949)

Airplane! (1980)
The film's many effective puns, sight gags, parodies, wordplays, and other jokes, beginning with the opening credits sequence set to the familiar music of Jaws with the plane's fin appearing through the clouds; the Airport '75 (1974) spoof scene of the singing of River of Jordan by air stewardess Randy (Lorna Patterson) while continually knocking out the I-V drip for transplant patient (Jill Whelan) - on the way to the Mayo Clinic who desperately struggles during the song; also the deadpanned, sexually-prurient and provocative lines by Captain Clarence Oveur (Peter Graves) to a young boy, among others: "Ya ever seen a grown man naked?" and "Do you like movies about gladiators?" - or the plentiful puns: ("Surely, you can't be serious!" "I am serious , and don't call me 'Shirley'!"); the continuing confusion of the pilot's "Roger" with his own navigator Roger (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) while talking to ground control; and stewardess Elaine Dickinson's (Julie Hagerty) question over the PA: ("By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?"), and the infamous "fellatio" scene in which Elaine is given directions by air-traffic control to reinflate Otto the Autopilot doll (an inflatable man in a pilot suit) by a nozzle in his belt buckle ("On the belt line of the automatic pilot there's a tube. Now that is the manual inflation nozzle. Take it out and blow on it") -- Otto suddenly sports a huge satisfied grin and later both Otto and Elaine smoke cigarettes; also the "Oh stewardess, I speak jive" scene between elderly passenger Jive Lady (Barbara Billingsley) who offered to translate the jive talk of two black passengers: ("Cut me some slack, Jack!... Chump don't want no help, chump don't GET da' help!"); and ex-flier Ted Striker's (Robert Hays) flashback of dancing madly while the Bee Gee's "Stayin' Alive" plays - a send-up of Saturday Night Fever, or his passionate kiss with Elaine on the beach while covered in kelp - a spoof of From Here to Eternity

Alice Adams (1935)
The classic, tragically funny, disastrous dinner-party scene, in which aspiring, pretentious Alice (Katharine Hepburn) hopelessly wishes to rise up above the low-social prominence of her vulgar, poor family to impress her rich new suitor Arthur Russell (Fred MacMurray) by inviting him to a "stylish" dinner party at her own home - in the wilting humidity and heat - served by the part-time hired black servant/cook Malena (Hattie McDaniel)

All of Me (1984)
The clever role-reversal comedy with physical slapstick comedy performed by its comedy stars Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin as two parts or personalities of the same person (a left male side and right female side); one is unhappy lawyer and jazz musician Roger Cobb (Martin) and the other is his wealthy, dying invalid client/spinster Edwina Cutwater (Tomlin) - whose soul transmigrates into Roger's body through the misguided efforts of befuddled, incomprehensible but beatific Tibetan shaman/mystic Prahka Lasa (Richard Libertini) - and who can only be seen in mirrors; the hilarious scenes in which Roger fights with his female half whenever he does anything (such as drive, walk down the street, or make love); the scene in which he has to go to the bathroom at a urinal, and he tries to teach his half-female body what to do (Edwina is instructed to "tap" afterward) - and he experiences a tug-of-war as they attempt to walk down the street together ("First me, then you, me, you, me, you..."); also the courtroom scene during divorce proceedings for his boss in which Edwina eventually takes control and wins the case for the wife - while representing the husband/boss!; also, the crazy and crowd-pleasing song-and-dance number to "All of Me" in the end credits when the two of them dance together in a mirror's reflection ("Okay, try it with your own feet") -- culminating with them toppling over each other

1962 Faber College's misfit, beer-bellied Delta fraternity member John "Bluto" Blutarsky's (John Belushi) slobbish and gross-out behavior (crushing beer cans on his head, piling up food on his cafeteria tray, slurping down a plate of jello, and his guess-what-I-am-impersonation ("See if you can guess what I am now") of a zit when he punches his cheeks to send food in all directions ("I'm a zit. Geddit?")); also the scene in the cafeteria in which Bluto instigates a food fight (by calling out loudly: "Food fight"), and his participation in a toga party, and his famous challenge to his fellow frat brothers: ("Did you say 'over'? Nothing is 'over' until we decide it is. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!...It ain't over now. Cause when the goin' gets tough, the tough get goin'. Who's with me? Let's go. Come on"); the winking 'peeping tom' scene of Bluto on a ladder at undressing frat girl Mandy Pepperidge's (Mary Louise Weller) window; and the scene of a Playboy-reading young kid thanking God for a cheerleader catapulted into his room during the sabotaged homecoming parade

The Apartment (1960)
The scene of lowly insurance worker Bud Baxter (Jack Lemmon), one of "31,259 drones" working in an insurance company, straining spaghetti through a tennis racket; and the curtain-closing scene during a card game when Bud professes his love ("I absolutely adore you") to elevator operator and discarded mistress Miss Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine) and she responds by handing him a pack of cards and bluntly speaking the film's last line: "Shut up and deal"
The scene of chainsaw-handed hero Ash Williams' (Bruce Campbell) constructing a mechanical metal hand for himself (to take the place of his lopped-off right hand) in medieval times, and his statement to himself: "Groovy"; also the scene of his struggle against tiny, mischievous versions of himself, his fall on a hotstove when he had to lever his face off with a spatula; and his fight with his own full-sized doppelganger clone (which had sprouted a head from his own shoulder) - ending when he shot his evil double and declared: "Good, bad. I'm the guy with the gun", then chained the clone to a table and dissected it with his chainsaw before burying the pieces; as he threw the chopped up remains of himself in an open grave, his decapitated head spoke: "You shall never retrieve the Necronomicon. You'll die in the graveyard before you'll get it." In the graveyard scene, he faced a dilemma regarding three look-alike books - and chose the wrong Necronomicon (Book of the Dead) -- the erroneous book, with a turning, 'black-hole'-like center, vacuumed him into itself, until he literally had to pull himself out with an elongated face. When he delivered an incorrect magical incantation before opening the correct book (forgetting the words: "Klaatu, Barada, Nikto"), and substituting "necktie," "nectar," and "nickel" etc. for the real third 'n' word ("It's definitely an 'N' word"), a skeletal Deadite 'army of the dead' (similar to Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion creatures in Jason and the Argonauts (1963)) was inadvertently unleashed and emerged from the ground, and grabbed his face repeatedly.

This was the first in a PG-rated series of James Bond spoofs - a fast-paced comedy filled with gags (both verbal and visual) featuring Mike Myers as a cryogenically-frozen 60s, James Bondian spy (defrosted in the 90s) named Austin Powers who battles his villainous arch-enemy Dr. Evil (Myers also), who proposes a blackmail scheme to the UN for an initial inflation-challenged ransom of "One... MEEE-llion dollars!", to prevent his Project Vulcan scheme; Evil's bizarre relationship with cloned son Scott Evil (Seth Green), including the scene in which he keeps shushing Scott: ("Let me tell you a little story about a man named Sh!") and the inappropriate Family Counseling speech by Evil to his therapy group: ("The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin?...At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking - I highly suggest you try it"); in the final classic honeymoon scene, Austin Powers cavorts naked with glamorous "shagadelic" Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) with their private parts teasingly hidden by strategically-placed objects; there were android "Fem-bot" go-go-girls with guns in the tops of their bikinis, catchphrases such as: "Bee-have," "Sake it to me baby!", "Yeah, baby, yeah," "Do I make you horny, baby?" and "Shall we shag now or shall we shag later?", and lots of gags about a Swedish-made penis enlarging pump

Our shadows!") that was watched by an astonished sailor - ending with Myers giving a stand-up birth to Mini-Me!

How much is a copy of Orgasm?"); and Fielding's unsuccessful attempt to protect an old woman in a subway from two toughs (one of whom is Sylvester Stallone); also after traveling to San Marcos and being captured by the guerrillas - the scene following nebbish Fielding's training in first-aid treatment for snakebite (sucking out the poison) when a topless woman (clutching her breast) screams and runs by: "I got bit on by a snake!", causing a huge grin on Fielding's face, who pursues her greedily, and is followed by the rest of the rebel camp; also, Mellish's ordering of almost one thousand grilled cheese sandwiches and seven hundred cups of coffee for his troops at a lunch counter during a South American revolution; also the torture scene when soldiers force a man to listen to the score of Naughty Marietta; and the grossly inappropriate speech to upper class dignitaries given by Fielding, now El Presidente of San Marco and wearing a ridiculous fake red beard, at a high society fundraiser: "Uh, we have more locusts than...uh, locusts of all races and creeds. These, these locusts, incidentally, are available at popular prices. And so, by the way, are most of the women of San Marcos..."; also the scene of Fielding's objections to the judge during his trial for treason in the US: ("I object your honor. This trial is a travesty. It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham. I move for a mistrial"), and his televised honeymoon night with Nancy (Louise Lasser) provided with commentary by Howard Cosell - interpreted as a boxing match

The words of advice given by Lompoc resident Egbert Souse (W.C. Fields) to his future son-in-law Og Oggilby (Grady Sutton) - "Surely, don't be a luddie-duddie, don't be a moon-calf, don't be a jabbernow, you're not those, are you?"; and the scene when he is hired as a vigilant bank security dick - he chokes a young boy in a cowboy outfit waving a toy gun - believing that he is a holdup man - as the bratty boy walks out of the bank, he ridicules the guard's shiny, bulbous red nose: "Mommy, doesn't that man have a funny nose?" His mother chides him for making fun: "You mustn't make fun of the gentleman, Clifford. You'd like to have a nose like that full of nickels, wouldn't you?"; also Egbert's Black Pussy Cat Cafe drinking routine; also Souse's use of a Mickey Finn to hold off effeminate, inquisitive and persistent bank examiner J. Pinkerton Snoopington (Franklin Pangborn); and his memorable, zany, slapstick getaway car chase scene as a "hostage" with a terrified robber - it is a superbly-timed chase - the cars (Souse's car is followed by the local police, the bank president, and a representative from the movie company) zoom and circle around, barely avoiding crashing into each other or other obstacles in the path - the getaway car careens through streets, over ditches (over the heads of ditchdiggers), around curves and up a mountainside, missing collisions at every turn with the pursuit vehicles. When asked by the thug in the back seat to give him the wheel, Egbert matter-of-factly pulls it off the steering column and gives it to him; when the robber is struck unconscious and apprehended, Sousรจ is an unlikely hero once again for thwarting another heist

All of the film's political incorrectness, including the scene of near-sighted and dim-witted Governor Le Petomane's (Mel Brooks) nuzzling into bosomy secretary Miss Stein's (Robyn Hilton) cleavage while being advised by villainous and scheming attorney general Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman); also the scene of the new Rock Ridge Sheriff Black Bart's (Cleavon Little) warning to the townsfolk as he reaches down for his acceptance speech - to their gaspings: "Excuse me while I whip this out"; and the infamous gas-passing, bean-eating scene around the campfire by flatulent cowboys -- play clip (excerpt): Blazing Saddles; the scene in which Mongo (Alex Karras) enters Rock Ridge riding an ox, then later knocks out a horse with a bare, single-fisted punch; and Madeline Kahn's exquisite parody of Marlene Dietrich's saloon singer "Frenchy" (from Destry Rides Again) as the "Teutonic Titwillow" - and her memorable phrase: "It's twue, it's twue" after unzipping sheriff Black Bart's (Cleavon Little) fly and examining his endowment in the dark; and the scene in which Hedley is recruiting men to assault the town - in which the gun-slinging Waco Kid (Gene Wilder) holds up Bart as bait for two Ku Klux Klan members so that they can steal their white robes - with Bart's mock-dumb (racially-stereotyped) taunt: "Hey! Where are the white women at?" - and more

The scene of uncouth millionaire junk dealer Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford) playing a silent game of gin rummy with his dumb-blonde, ex-chorus-girl, unrefined mistress Billie Dawn (Judy Holliday); the sound of Billie's unabashedly vulgar, shrill, stupid-sounding, Betty Boop-like voice; Billie's ignorance about the difference between a peninsula and penicillin, but her increased intelligence after being tutored by Paul Varall (William Holden) - i.e., Harry Brock: "Shut up! You ain't gonna be tellin' nobody nothin' pretty soon!" Billie Dawn: "DOUBLE NEGATIVE! Right?" Paul Verrall: "Right!"; and her retort to Harry: "Would you do me a favor, Harry?...Drop dead!"; and the film's final line spoken by Billie to a police officer about her recent marriage to Paul: "We'll make it. It's a clear case of predestination." Officer: "Pre--- what?" Billie: "Look it up"

He'll never deliberately hurt a living thing. He'll just bit by little bit lower our standards where they're important. Just a tiny little bit. Just coax along. Flash over substance...And he'll get all the great women" - when she accused him of being the devil, he countered that her assertion was impossible: "You know I'm not...Because I think we have the kind of friendship where if I were the Devil, you'd be the only one I would tell..."
