* In the novel, Jack and Wendy make a winking DoubleEntendre over the time Jack trimmed a woman's topiary for some extra cash. Danny innocently asks if the woman had "nice hedges," and has no idea why his parents are both sent into hysterics by it.

* Just like most of the unintentionally funny moments in the film, this merits as one of them. [[spoiler: During the scene when Jack is trying to break the bathroom door to get to Wendy and says "Little Pigs, Little Pigs, Let me come in." Wendy, realizing she can't get out the window grabs the knife and cowers in the corner with an expression saying "Oh fuck this shit" as if she were too tired to deal with the situation.]]

* Stanley Kubrick's films are usually not very funny, but the film critic David Thomson has argued that ''The Shining'' is the funniest film Kubrick ever made. The sheer richness of Jack's insanity, and the gleeful relish with which Jack Nicholson tackles the role, especially after Wendy's discovered that Jack's "novel" consists of nothing but pages and pages of paper covered with "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy", makes for something that manages to be both very frightening and ''freaking hilarious''. Come on, tell me you didn't laugh at "Heeeeeeere's JOHNNY!"

* The bar scene. After recovering from his current daze, Jack then looks directly at the camera (as though he's addressing the viewer) and says in an uncharacteristically casual tone:
