20 Movies That Got the Loudest Laughs in Theaters

Watching a comedy alone is kind of like jerking off in the shower: It’ll get the job done, but it’s so much more fun in a group setting. A moment that might earn little more than a sharp exhale at home could have you on the verge of a medical emergency on opening night. It’s not exclusive to comedies, either. Rolling your eyes at an overwrought drama at home is a drag, but laughing at it with 100 strangers in the dark makes you understand why Orwell’s Two Minutes Hate was so effective.

As a result, everyone can probably remember the scene that got the loudest laugh they’ve ever witnessed. “For me, I think it would have to be when I went and saw The Hangover!” user phantom_avenger told r/Movies. “That entire scene where the cops use the tasers on the trio and have the kids shoot them. I’ve never heard so many people laugh so hard that some people were running out of breath and coughing.” 

They then asked, “What movie did you see in theaters that had the loudest laughing reaction?” and Reddit recalled when they laughed, they cried, and in at least one case, they were stunned silent.
