Laughing is cute. We like to laugh when things are funny. Do you? Doctors and Instagram influencers tell us all of the time that “laughter is the best medicine.” We agree – unless you have a serious medical condition that requires, like, actual medicine from a pharmacy.
Like 99% of the artwork at HomeGoods proclaims, “Life is better when you’re laughing”
One of the greatest sounds in Hollywood is Seth Rogen’s laugh. If you’ve never heard it before (which, no offense, is totally weird if you haven’t) – we would best describe it as the sound Fozzie Bear would make if someone threw him down a flight of stairs.
We love Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen is one of the most dependably funny actors and filmmakers working in Hollywood today. When you scroll through his film credits – you’ll probably be like, “Woah! Hot, hot dang! Seth Rogen is a funny dude. Those movies are so, so funny.” From battling an entire frat house in Neighbors to unexpectedly becoming a stoner-papa-to-be in Knocked Up, Seth Rogen consistently delivers the chuckles.
In fact, the last time we watched Pineapple Express we laughed so hard, that we lost our voice for seven days. That was great because we didn’t have to do things like present in meetings at work. Thank you, Seth Rogen.
Seth Rogen has starred in so many blockbusters and has also made fun lil’ cameos in a bunch of films – it’s super hard to narrow down his “funniest scenes.” Scientifically, we don’t think it’s something that can be done. (We asked Dr. Fauci and he agreed with our hypothesis.**)
**this is not true. Dr Fauci please don’t come at us.
Nevertheless because we want to pay homage to our favorite Kim Kardashian body double, we’ve curated a list of 10 of Seth Rogen’s funniest scenes in film. If you’re a diehard Seth Rogen fan, don’t @ us. This list is subjective – because, again, there’s just too many scenes to choose from. We do not proclaim that these are his top 10 scenes of all time.
Rather, please consider this list to be a collection of divine cinematic hilariousness starring America’s sweetheart, Seth Rogen
Also if you don’t own a pair of earbuds, maybs don’t play these clips in mixed company or in places where other humans who have ears may be lurking – 95% of them are NSFW, friend.
Our favorite scenes from Seth Rogen movies, in no particular order…
10. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising – Chase scene
In the sequel to the hilarious original – new kids on the block, the ladies of Kappa Nu, are broke and are unable to pay their rent. The ladies decide to sell trash bags full of marijuana at a bangin’ tailgate party to earn some quick cash and keep their sorority house. Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Bryne want the sorority evicted, obvi – so they devise a plan: have Zac Efron and his 19 abs dance provocatively on a large stage to distract the crowd while Seth Rogen swipes all of Kappa Nu’s sellable product. Ah, if only these types of plans would ever go off without a hitch. A chase scene ensues and it’s funny AF, for sure!
9. Zack and Miri Make a Porno – And… Action!
In the flick, Zack and Miri—played by Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks, respectively—are two lifelong friends-turned-roommates. They’re super platonic and aren’t down with eachother like that. Like, at all. They (and their household) find themselves super down on the luck—they’re extremely broke. Utilities are being shut off and it’s making Zack and Miri sad and also mad. The only way to make money? Make an adult film of course! The duo decides to film their foray into adult entertainment in Zack’s coffee shop to film Swallow My Cockuccino.
8. 50/50 – Outing the girlfriend
50/50 stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a man diagnosed with cancer. Seth Rogen plays his best friend who is responsible for bringing the laughs (and receipts!) in this dark comedy. When Seth Rogen’s character stumbles upon his best friend’s girlfriend stepping out on him, he takes photograph proof and hilariously showcases the evidence to the, um, one-time happy couple.
7. Knocked Up – Trippin’ at Cirque
Ah, a Seth Rogen classic – right?! In the divine piece of cinema, Seth Rogen plays Ben, a loveable stoner who—well, isn’t doing much with his life. Not much at all. That is until he partakes in a one night stand that leaves his one-time fling Alison preggers. Impregnating a woman that he barely knows makes Ben feel overwhelmed and stressed. So he decides to relieve his anxiety by taking hallucinogenic mushrooms with Paul Rudd’s character. The two attend a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas and things go totally off the rails.
6. Pineapple Express – Family dinner
The wild action comedy film centers on the mayhem experienced (and induced) by a process server played by Seth Rogen and his marijuana dealer played by James Franco. The two go on the run after witnessing something they shouldn’t have—a murder! A corrupt one! In a dinner scene that definitely doesn’t go smoothly at all, Seth Rogen’s character tries to warn his girlfriend’s family that everyone is in danger. Because of the alarming news, things get super loco and no one seems to enjoy their meal.
5. This Is the End – Beam me up
Fictional versions of Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel are trapped on Earth (in the Hollywood Hills, nonetheless) during a biblical apocalypse like no other. (Actually… Scratch that, we’ve never experienced a biblical apocalypse so we don’t really have anything to compare it to.) Without spoiling the climax of the film, fake Seth Rogen is about to fall into Satan’s mouth. Whitney Houston plays in the background and we all laugh and laugh.
4. The Interview – Stash the poison
Co-produced and directed by our dude Seth Rogen, The Interview was a super controversial film that made North Korea very mad at the United States of America. North Korea does not like being the butt of a joke, apparently. Seth Rogen and James Franco are journalists who are due to interview North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-Un. Before they are able to do so, however, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him. Obviously things get goofy. Obviously. The CIA air drops a fairly bulky capsule of poison for Seth Rogen to use on Kim Jong-Un to finish him (Mortal Kombat voice). When guards start to close in on Seth Rogen during the intense scene, he’s forced to shove the capsule right where the sun don’t shine.
3. Neighbors – Fight scene
Another classic piece of cinema that made us giggle ‘til we tooted twice. Here’s the simple setup: When it comes down to fistacuffs between Zac Effron and Seth Rogen, many things can be used as a viable weapon.
2. The Night Before – High at church
After ingesting, like, way too many drugs – Seth Rogen’s character trips his way into a holiday midnight mass with his wife. His lack of knowledge ‘bout Christinanity, church and stuff definitely made us chuckle. However, once the hallucinogens kick in – mass gets litty for Seth Rogen.
1. Superbad – Interviewing the witness
When an innocent Hawaiian gentleman named McLovin is assaulted by a rude robber at a liquor store, it’s up to two super credible police officers played by Bill Hader and Seth Rogen to bust the perp. Unfortunately for McLovin and the justice he’s owed, the investigation doesn’t start off very well. Take a looksy at how Seth Rogen and Bill Hader essentially misinterpret every single thing the liquor store clerk has to offer.
Thank you Seth Rogen for keeping us laughing throughout the years, and for bringing us your very own weed company, too.
