What are some of the best scenes in which the bad guy gets his satisfying comeuppance? Of course we can pick where the bad guy just dies horribly, like, say, Rob Roy, but I’d prefer the eternal humiliation / disgrace angle.
Ever After. What can I say, I actually liked this movie. Espacially the scene at the end where the evil stepmother and daughter think they’re arriving “in style” so the daughter can be named queen, but then the tables are turned. I even didn’t mind the over-the-top ending where they get tossed in the vat of steaming hot laundry water. (Although they got a little carried away with the purplish tint to their faces).
Absence of Malice. The scene where Wilford Brimley comes in and cleans house. “You weren’t no pres-ee-dential appointee, Elliot. Th’ one that hired you is me. You got thirty days.”
Trading Places. “Turn those machines back on!!!”
