YMMV on tastes in humor, but once in a while, the much-maligned duo do find a joke that actually works.

  • One example is in Epic Movie when Edward drinks from the "chocolate river".
    • "AAAAAHH! TALKING BEAVER!" *kicks* Funnier the second time when Lucy already met Mr. Beaver.
    • The Superman Returns gag in Epic Movie, where, instead of deflecting a bullet with his eye, it goes in with an appropriate squishy noise, followed by shrieks of agony.
      "Oh, my God! You shot me in the fucking eye! That really hurt! Why would you do that?! That was so unnecessary, you bastard!" (falls off the building as he screams like a little girl)

  • Frodo trying to pawn the One Ring. Hilarity Ensues.
  • The HeadOn parody from Disaster Movie, possibly the only remotely funny joke in the movie.
    • The "Running with glass slippers" would be on here... if it didn't come after a scene which we see the princess eating glass.
  • The gag about how blatantly obvious the councilman is the traitor, as well as joking about how many movies have villains who are trustworthy to the cast but blatantly obvious to the audience.
    • Traitoro was a... traitor?
    • The penguin in "Meet The Spartans" going "I'm gonna shove my happy foot up yo' ass!"
    • The Xerxes Expy tricking the Leonidas Expy into bowing down to him by telling him that his shoe is untied.
    • The bizarre Dance Party Ending with the entire cast singing I Will Survive. It's out of place, but oddly amusing.
    • Two of the Spartans carry around a blue screen during the battle, saying if they need reinforcements they can just CG more in. It gets better when you see them charging into battle carrying the blue screen. Damnit, a clever joke!
  • It may be obvious, but in "The Starving Games," District 12 using their middle fingers instead of the three finger salute towards the Capitol is pretty funny.
  • In Super Fast, the car the Brian O'Conner Expy drives has a NOS tank full of Lance Armstrong's Urine.
    • Also, the joke about the team moving the restaurant comes incredibly close (as well as almost being an actual joke).
  • In Date Movie, Grant Fockyerdoder accidentally knocked Julia's adoptive grandmother's urn, which contained her decaying body. The Jones' cat starts having sex with it, grossing out Grant.


How well does it match the trope?
