10 Emotional Movie Scenes That Were Unintentionally Hilarious
Creating genuine emotion is a difficult thing to do in film. A truly harrowing scene is one that expertly coordinates the talents of all those involved, where the writing, direction, acting and continuity work together as one to achieve the desired emotional response. There are many films out there that have perfected this formula, E.T., Philadelphia, Toy Story 3 (and 2, for that matter) to name just a few. But then there are examples of when films get this horribly, horribly wrong. Sometimes a film will try and bring you to the absolute edge of your feelings and just ends up being downright funny for whatever reason, whether it's hammy acting, terrible dialogue, unlikable characters or all of the above. So, it's time to remind ourselves of some of the greatest blunders in "serious" filmmaking with a list of 10 Emotional Movie Scenes That Were Unintentionally Hilarious. I'd just like to point out that not everything on this list is "bad" though, sometimes scenes in some of my favourite films just make me laugh due to my wicked sense of humour.
