O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
Anytime you can work in the word "succubus" and square off old-timey-fisticuffs-style all in the same scene it's gonna get my attention. Too bad Everett's fists can't bail out his silver tongue.
What a shitty day that would be, just getting throttled right out of fucking nowhere like that. Sucks.
Groundhog Day (1993)
Haha! The 270 degree rotation really makes this one.
Dumb and Dumber (1994)
Also known as Ned gets jacked in the face Part 2.
Wedding Crashers (2005)
No nonsense left-handed jab to the face is pretty classic.
Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Who hasn't wanted to slug Robert Downey right in his fucking Downey Jr. nose at some time or another?
*Thanks to jaytoast for unknowingly inspiring this choice.
Step Brothers (2008)
Chubby curly-headed man child in a necktie punches douche-bag in a leather jacket clean off a tree-fort club-house. Yes please.
The Wicker Man (2006)
There simply aren't words for this. The fact that it's Nic Cage in the bear-suit manages to make it even more priceless.
The bell dong makes up for the lack of "POW!", "BIFF!", "FWACK!" graphics.
I'd call that initial right cross a
The Grey (2012)
I don't have a clip yet but... Liam Neeson punches a wolf. Had they simply titled the film Liam Slugs a Wolf or maybe Badass Aussie Liam Neeson Clocks a Wolf a Good One Right in its Goddamn Wolf Snout I swear its box-office numbers would be double what they are right now.
Movies like Fight Club or Rocky or Raging Bull don't really have a place on this list. Neither do martial arts films or anything starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. This list is more geared toward the fist meets face meets comedy side of things. And because let's face it, oftentimes a well placed comedic pop to the teeth is more memorable anyway.
