Funny: Taken
Taken 1
  • The part where Peter gets run over when he thinks he is safe is pretty funny.
  • When Bryan is bluffing the Albanians, he says a satellite is watching them 24/7. One of them discreetly looks outside and up at the sky.
  • Marco the dumb rapist's long-overdue and well-deserved Electric Torture sequence.
  • "We can nego-" BLAM! That either makes you laugh or pump your fist saying "hell yeah!"
  • Also in the first movie, when Jean Claude and Bryan talk.
    Jean-Claude: We need to find the spott—
    Bryan: I found him. He's dead.
    Jean-Claude: ...You found him that way?
  • When Bryan is "negotiating" with the prostitute, we can see a cab-driver laughing and making a kissing gesture.
  • When Bryan loses his final pursuer from the junkyard, he gives him the middle finger.
  • Jamie and Bryan meeting at the end. There's something hilarious about Liam Neeson's incredibly pissed off face.
Taken 2
  • Brian finds out Kim has a boyfriend. The sheer awkwardness of the situation is hilarious.
  • When Kim is being chased across the rooftops, one guy tries to jump over a gap after her, and ends up with his throat smacking into a cable and falling to his death.
  • Bryan holds a guy at gunpoint to get another mook to back off, threatening to blow the guy's head off, the mook just shoots the guy being held hostage and tries to kill Bryan anyways.
  • "Don't shoot this one. I really like him."
    • It's even funnier if you consider that he probably thought she was joking.
  • Bryan and Kim analyze their roles in a high-speed chase.
    Kim: I can't do this!
    Bryan: Can you shoot?
    Kim: No.
    Bryan: THEN DRIVE!
