Which movie has the funniest blooper reel?

Rory Cashin

It is one of the greatest parts of going to see a funny movie…

The film ends. The credits start to roll. But wait, there’s more! There’s famous people being so funny around each other that they can’t help but crack up laughing at each other. And then we laugh at them laughing, and everyone has a great time.

The House is in Irish cinemas right now, and as you’d expect, the blooper reel at the end is very, very funny.

It got us to thinking, over the years there have been plenty of comedies, and many of them had some good outtakes, but which of them had the best ones?

To that end, here’s the ones we figured were the highlights of rich and famous people making mistakes on camera:


The cult gem that you really should seek out if you haven’t seen it already is the jump off point for Robert Downey Jnr’s career return-to-form, and his on-screen chemistry with Val Kilmer is fantastic.

Highlight: Kilmer going full diva – “Every impulse or instinct you have… change it.”

The Chris Tucker-Jackie Chan trilogy was insanely popular at the box office, but the mixture of Chan’s stunt-work, still learning the English language, and Tucker’s mouth and brain moving at two different speeds led to A LOT of slip-ups.

Highlight: When a bad guy accidentally sneezes on Tucker – “What’s wrong witchu??”

The kick off point for the Cornetto Trilogy – which would be followed by Hot Fuzz and The World’s End – this rom-com-zom is something of a modern classic, and watching the outtakes it becomes very clear that they’re all just a bunch of mates trying to make each other laugh.

Highlight: Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright sitting in the bar talking about another of the patrons – “Pipe or clam, doesn’t matter.”

There was a time when just about every single Jim Carrey movie was solid box office gold. Take this one, for example. It made over $300 million at the box office, which is a CRAZY amount of money for a mini-budget comedy to make. Some of the Carrey’s other films around the same time – Bruce Almighty comes to mind – also had bloopers, but these were the best.

Highlight: “A goose!”

These bloopers (and there are A LOT of them) are about 1,000,000 times funnier than the actual movie itself. They’re also funnier than just about any other film ever, too. Would we watch an entire film of outtakes, with absolutely no context or plot or any of these things? Probably, if they’re as funny as these are.

Highlight: Everything between Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig. “What’s your favourite fruhmfram?” “Grimgram.”
