Sometimes they’re cute, I suppose, but mostly they annoy me. I mean, fer Chrissake, someone realizes they’re going to die, never to live and breathe and see Britney Spears or Paris Hilton or George Clooney nekkid ever again, but has the presence (and superb razor-sharp comedic timing) to utter a pathetic/funny line.
Was watching the “Avengers” movie the other day (God, I hate that fucking travesty, that blight on what was an enjoyable TV show, and still can’t believe even Patrick “Give Me Money and I’ll Debase Myself in AnyDamnThing” Macnee agreed to cameo), and there’s Eddie Izzard swinging hundreds of feet on a rope, moving at something like 723 miles per second, and smacking HARD! into a concrete silo (or something like that), and instead of being bloodied and bursting open and just falling as the shock of the impact fried every nerve in his body, he hangs there for a second or two, all but looks directly at the camera, and in a pathetic little funny voice says, “Oh, fuck,” then falls to his death. Frigging hilarious!
But sometimes I do chuckle, don’t ask me why.
What are other good examples of the “Oh, fuck” death quip in movies?
