10 Funniest Characters In Sci-Fi Movie History

10. Frank - Men In Black II

Columbia Pictures

Be honest, does anybody NOT think of Frank whenever they walk past a pug on the street? Every inch of my being wants to grab the little cutie into my arms, slap on a black suit and give it a cigar (ok maybe not the smoking thing but you get my point).

Five years after the incredible success of Men In Black, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, Colombia pictures released Men In Black II in 2002 to mixed reviews. Although it never lived up to the first film (although if we're honest, most sequels don't) there were certainly some memorable performances throughout. I could mention Rip Torn as agent Zed or Tony Shalhoub as Jeebs but it's the scrappy, cigar-smoking, Gloria Gaynor-singing pug who takes its rightful place on this list.

Voiced by puppeteer Tim Blaney (who was also the voice for Johnny 5 in the Short Circuit films), Frank stole the show amongst an armada of acting royalty and his relationship with The Worms was the funniest thing about the whole film. How Frank and The Worms never got their own spin-off film or TV show, I'll never know.

I see my role at WhatCulture the same way my wife sees my role as a lover: I contribute in a very small way, my presence is barely noticeable and I’m not entirely sure if the laughter is at me or with me.
