10 Funny Character Deaths in Movies


Death is obviously a pretty serious subject but it doesn’t always have to be.  As Robin Williams once said in Patch Adams:

What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor?  Death is not the enemy gentlemen.

And in that light, I’m glad some movies do in fact treat death with a little bit of humor.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

So here are 10 funny character deaths in movies (with video evidence)

The Model Fire in Zoolander


First of all, this entire scene, hell the entire movie is amazing.  But when these guys are having a “gas fight” using well…gasoline you have to laugh your ass off when the whole place explodes.

Blue in Old School


No better way to die than squaring off against two topless girls who are oiled up and about 1/4 of your age.

Hot Tomale Death in Dumb and Dumber


How’s your burger?  Pills are good.  Pills are gooooood.   We could also go with the death fight scene

Chubbs in Happy Gilmore


After all that time, it looks like the Alligator got him after all.

The Exploding Head in Big Trouble in Little China


While this movie might have been considered an action movie, I really think it was a comedy.  And when that dude’s head blows up it’s pretty funny.

Aunt Edna – Vacation


Nothing more memorable than when the Griswald’s drove with Edna on top of that car and then simply left a note.

The Hunting Accident in Hot Shots


Sure, survive your plane going down but watch out for those hunters after your head looks like a deer.

Battle of Wits in Princess Bride


Vizzini thinks that he is the smart one but he doesn’t get the last laugh.  “Never mess with a Sicilian when death is on the line!”

Marvin in Pulp Fiction


Perhaps the most funny unintentional death in movie history.

The One Shot Shot in Raiders of the Lost Ark


Probably one of the most classic and quickest fight scenes in action movie history.
