Funny: L.A. Confidential

  • "She is Lana Turner."
    • James Ellroy himself found the scene so funny that he was able to forgive the timeline fudging (the film is set before Johnny Stompanato and Lana Turner got together).
  • "That how you ran the good cop/bad cop routine?"
  • Anything Mickey Cohen says in the book, especially when he's talking about his bulldog, "Mickey Junior".
  • "...The sky's the limit!" One burst of machine gun fire later: "Oh well."
  • There's just something darkly comical about the Movie Premiere Pot Bust scene.
