The 1973 film
- Christopher Lee has some wonderful Deadpan Snarker moments: "It's much too dangerous to jump the fire with your clothes on."
Howie: What religion can they possibly be learning jumping over bonfires?!Summerisle: Parthenogenesis.Howie: What?Summerisle: Literally, as Miss Rose would doubtless say in her assiduous way, reproduction without sexual union.Howie: Oh, what is all this? I mean, you've got fake biology, fake religion... sir, have these children never heard of Jesus?Summerisle: Himself the son of a virgin, impregnated, I believe, by a ghost...
- The whole scene where Lord Summerisle is explaining the fire-jumping is a masterclass in pointing out Howie's hypocrisy whilst giving an education lecture about it and also sets up Howie as an overly pious blowhard:
- The scene where Sergeant Howie is searching every house for Rowan Morrison and at one point comes in on a woman (the librarian) taking a bath. Neither he nor she says anything for a moment, then he stammers "I-I'm sorry," and abruptly leaves. To add to the hilarity, look where her left hand is.
- Also in Howie's search, he opens up a closet to find a strange outfit inside. The man beside him happily informs him, "That's my costume. The Salmon of Knowledge!"
- Christopher Lee, in drag as the leader of the May Day precession, prancing around waving a sickle and some flowers... with an entirely serious expression on his face, berating Punch (Howie in disguise) for not dancing with sufficient conviction.
Summerisle: What's the matter with you MacGregor, you call that dancing? Cut some capers, man! Use your bladder! That's what you're here for! I suppose you've been getting drunk at your own bar!
The 2006 remake
- As far as Narm goes, the ending of the 2006 remake of The Wicker Man is near the top. Check out the comedy trailer.
- *points gun* "STEP AWAY FROM THE BIKE."
- Few images can beat Nic Cage in a bear suit, sucker-punching a woman, or pump-kicking Leelee Sobieski into a wall.
- "OH, NO! NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES! AAAAAHHHHH! OH, THEY'RE IN MY EYES!note MY EEEEEEEEEYES! AARGHABLARGHRAWRGHRAWRGHWARGHRARRARGHRAGHRAA!!" (Dies)
- Just watch this video of "best scenes".
- Nick is sitting on a boat, peers out a window to the deck and spies on a young girl in a red dress. Who then gets hit by a truck.
- "How'd it get burned?! HOW'D IT GET BURNED?!! HOW'DITGETBURNEDHOW'DITGETBURRRRRRRRNEEEED?!?!"
- "I DON'T KNOW!!"
- What man represents in his purest form.
- This movie has Nicolas Cage in it. All is Narm.
- Nicolas Cage riding a bike in a suit with dramatic music playing in the background, anyone?
- "KILLING ME WONT BRING BACK YOUR GODDAMNED HONEY!!!!"
- "What's in the bag? A SHARK or something?" The line alone is funny for Cage's delivery, but keep in mind that two ladies are holding a large bodybag that's bleeding while he's searching for a missing girl, and he doesn't bat an eye at this.
