19. WILL FERRELL IN OLD SCHOOL (2003)Forgive us for getting all film geek heavy here. But whenever we watch Old School’s hilarious “You got a fucking dart in your neck scene,” Todd Phillips’ interesting choice of tone near the bit’s end always catches our attention. Specifically, the hallucinogenic way he shoots Will Ferrell’s tranquilizer-influenced stumble into the pool, and the haunting folk music that plays over his fever dream of kissing his estranged wife.
OK, so we’re thinking way too deeply about a scene that ends with Seann William Scott locking lips with Ferrell for laughs. That doesn’t change our perception of the scene, though, nor does an admission of guilt make the overall sequence any less funny.
