Funny: The Shining
  • 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!"
