Funny / RoboCop 2

Go To

  • Robocop reading the Miranda Rights to a corpse wouldn't be funny, if it weren't for his utterly confused reaction when this is pointed out.
  • Robocop finding a load of kids committing crimes.
  • "Thank you for not smoking!"
  • When RoboCop starts his fight with RoboCop 2, The Old Man shouts BEEEEHAAAAVEEE YOURSELVES!!! One of the most corrupt executives in movie history witnesses a huge battle between two cyborgs armed to the teeth, and all he does is discipline them like two bickering children.
    • During said fight, RoboCop blows up RoboCain's shoulder mounted cannon. When he does so, it gives a little video game/cartoony sound effect.
  • The final line of the film:
    RoboCop: Patience, Lewis. We're only human.
    • What really makes this funny is RoboCop then starts using his socket tool on his helmet.
  • " OCP pioneered cyborg technology and now we take a quantum leap forward. State-of-the-art destructive capabilities commanded by a unique combination of software and organic systems. In every way an improvement over the original. It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you, RoboCop 2." The prototypes are spectacular failures.
    • The first one steps out, to very triumphant fanfare. It is.....a clunky looking brown machine which then lifts up its face plate to reveal the face. The face then sparks and flinches its face in anger, realizing that he's lost his humanity. He draws his gun and shoots the two scientists overseeing the test, killing the one on the right while repeatedly saying "stop or I'll shoot, stop or I'll shoot..." Then he turns to his left and shoots Schenk in the arm (we cut away for a second to Schenk, who clutches his wounded arm and winces uncomfortably at this moment), then turns the gun on himself. Only then, as if to add insult to injury, the prototype's signal lights and sirens kick in.

    • The second one comes out. It looks much sleeker and more friendlier than the first one....only to suddenly take off its helmet, revealing a screaming skull with all sorts of wires coming out of it, then collapses to the ground and dies from inadvertently severing its life support with a loud crash. You can see the Old Man burying his face in his hands watching this.
      • A bit of Fridge Horror in that the slim model appears to be female, like the previously shot and killed scientist. Of course she committed suicide by tearing her helmet off.
      • Word of God says the second model simply wanted to show its face, and was not aware of its own nature enough to understand that the helmet was permanently attached to it.
    • The Old Man simply states "$19 million" with regards to cost overruns.
  • Cain's reaction to the Blue Velvet Nuke that wasn't ready yet.
    Cain: -Slurring- Frank. The Benzedrine's got my teeth wiggling. Cut it with sc - Scopalomine. 5 mills per.
  • The Sunblock 5000 ad.
    Surgeon General's Warning: Frequent use WILL cause skin cancer.
  • The Magnavolt commercial. A would-be carjacker gets electrocuted by a car's theft deterrent. What sells it is the announcer just dumping his smoking corpse on the ground and drives away.
  • The news seller's quote as many, many police cars drive past to go apprehend Cain.
    "Oh they not on strike, they goin' kick somebody ass!"

How well does it match the trope?
