Last month, when I was in Vegas, I saw a lot of people in every kind of costumes. There were the Minions, Lady Gagas, Show girls, Michael Jacksons and every other Spidermen and Batmans. But my top favorite was Jim Dangle from Reno 911. This guy was hilarious and for a second, I thought it was really Thomas Lennon (whom I love). I don’t know if you saw the movie but it makes me laugh every time.
Here with the funny guy (you can see how excited I was) :
I thought it would be nice to share with you my top favorite funny movie characters. There are so many but I narrowed my selection down to five.
1) Obviously Thomas Lennon as Lieutenant Jim Dangle in «Reno 911»
2) Kevin James as Paul Blart in «Paul Blart: Mall Cop»
3) Jamie Foxx as Dean «Mother#$%!» Jones in «Horrible Bosses»
4) Kristen Wiig as Annie Walker in «Bridesmaids»
5) Ken Jeong as Leslie Chow in the «Hangover» movies.
What’s your favorite funny character?
It was really difficult to bring down to five my favorite based-on-true-stories movies. I enjoy watching something that is based on true events. It automatically brings it to the «real» zone of movies. It’s always a plus when these movies are interpreted by some of my favorite actors or actresses.
1) W/E. (2012)
As I said in this post, I really liked this movie. The story behind it was really interesting because I had only seen «The King’s Speech» and with this we get to see a different point of view of the story behind the scandal of King Edward VIII abdication. Plus the costuming used in this movie is spectacular.
2) Intouchables. (2012)
You have no idea how much I loved this movie. It’s funny and heartbreaking. It is inspired by the true story of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo.
3) Gia. (1998)
Angelina Jolie does an excellent job portraying model Gia Carangi.
4) My week with Marilyn. (2011)
This was based on the book «The prince, the showgirl and me» by Colin Clark.
5) Girl, Interrupted. (1999)
After seeing this movie I fell in love with Angelina Jolie. It’s an adaptation of Susanna Kaysen’s memoir that has the same name.
Do you guys have any favorite movies based on true events?
