There's Something about Mary - the big binnoculars scene, the hair gell scene

Rush hour 2 The last outtake, "move over kobe" from a chinese woman, the gay store clerk

Austin Powers 2 - "just the 2 of us", the credits

Scary Movie - Miss Mann, the bathroom

use spoiler marks if necessary.

I know it's been a while, but by the end of the scene in Liar Liar where Jim Carrey "tells the truth" about everyone in the office meeting, I seem to recall some applause. I know I was almost on the floor laughing so hard, so my memory my not be perfect.

They applauded over an intentionally stupid joke from "Insomnia" but I won't ruin it for you.

The only time I heard the audience applaud after a joke was in "American Pie 2", the scene where Stifler, Jim, and Fincher were in the 2 lesbians house. The audience went crazy over at that scene.

I thought "American Pie 2" was an ok film but nothing I could watch over and over again though.

Not quite the same, but the first time I saw Beauty and the Beast, the audience applauded after each musical number (as if it were a Broadway show).

I saw a preview screening of The New Guy, which is easily the funniest comedy ever made (I know, I know, the previews make it look like doo-doo). At the end, of the film one guy in the audience clapped slowly, his clapping was gradually joined by others in the crowd, and the applause built up to a full standing ovation. The movie was that good.

Wow, I can't belive I'm asking Groucho this, but are you being serious? It sure sounds like you are. The New Guy THAT GOOD?

You have got to be kidding me. You should put a smiley in there.

C'mon this cannot be serious (I hope). One man slowly clapping...individual audience members slowly joining in....it gets louder and more fervent until...the entire thing builds to a crescendo as the entire crowed leaps to their feet and applauds at how magnificent the film must be. One of the oldest movie cliches in the book.

Funny stuff, Groucho.

That may be the most amazing and horrifying theater story I've ever heard.

I think the previews make it look very funny, it's good to see it might actually be.

Honk!

In Raiders, when Indy shoots the guy with the simitar. I always considered that a joke, and not just an action or the good guy winning. Audience applauded like crazy.......

Only movies I have been to where there was applause were the 3 packed ass Star Wars re-releases. They applauded at the destruction of the death star and what not.

I'm sure they have many times, but one occasion that I specifically recall (for some reason) was the "Do you like apples?" line during Good Will Hunting.

The incident that I remember was at "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle." The whole audience applauded and went nuts at the climax of the film (those of you who have seen it can probably guess where). Personally, I looked around at them like they were nuts.

Only happened once.I don't remember in exactly what scene but during Armageddon i remembered a couple people clapped after a joke.Personally i don't like it when people do anything that distracts others from watching the movie, except during a joke when it's okay to laugh.
