    The one scene I remember vividly this happened was Billy Madison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhAbBg69BBM
    Right at the end there. xD

    It's impossible to get everything, but I seriously don't know how you can have this list without placing what happens at the 5:13 mark on this video for Robin Williams in "Good Morning Vietnam"…lol https://youtu.be/Erf2iFHG44M

    Should've included Paul Rudd's inability stop laughing at Will Ferrell's river of ejaculate from Anchorman 2 and/or jingo jango/rub a dub dub from Role Models.

    Can I see this again without you talking thru the whole thing? We aren't stupid we can enjoy it without you explaining all the funny away.

    One of the best ones was when Jim Ignatowski (played by Christopher Lloyd) was applying for his taxi license on the show Taxi. Filling out the application was classic but the ultimate was when he took the test. He asked for help on the first question.

    Jim: What does a yellow light mean?

    Bobby (played by Jeff Connaway): (whispering) Slow down.

    Jim repeats the question slower. Continue the scene until one of the other actors loses it.

    Thinking about Pierce Brosnan trying not to break out in grins whilst listening to Robin Williams' innuendos in Mrs.Doubtfire.

    What? I don't believe it, i just don't believe it. The most infamous scene in the most infamous movie didn't make the list. When Dorothy meets the lion in The Wizard of Oz!! She couldnt couldn't stop giggling and Victor Fleming pulled her to the side and slapped her. Even in the final take, you can see her holding back her laughter.

    It’s pretty fucking awesome that Robin Williams won his Academy Award for a movie where his most famous scene is improvised

    what about the scene from Porky's after he puts his penis through the hole into the women's bathroom shower and the woman grabs it and they're interrogating them in the office that was all ad-libbed and that's why everyone was cracking up laughing.

    Just as I thought, you guys are horrible at commuting timing and you don't know when to start the clip or in the clip or show the clip just talk over it with your stupid dry voice. You always screw up comedy. Always! You never let the scene play through to prove your point. Unbelievable. Thumbs down

    Gene Wilder cracking up Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles should be on the list. "What did you expect? 'Welcome, sonny?' 'Make yourself at home?' 'Marry my daughter?' You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons."

    Mister Roberts from 1955. Henry Fonda as Mister Roberts and Jack Lemmon as Ensign Pulver are standing nose to nose as Ensign Pulver tells Mister Roberts about the prank he’s planning to pull on the captain, played by James Cagney. Henry Fonda plays his character pretty straight throughout the entire movie (which is a comedy), but he cannot keep a straight face in that particular scene.

    Wait a minute, is that my favorite female narrator saying " INCIDENTS-es ? It's plural ,, and it s only three syllables no such word my dear! BTW these ARE Ten Top Scenes IN WHICH the actors couldn't Keep a Straight Face. Missed my calling I suppose-but I'm really irritated now-this was one of the best speaking well-enunciated narrators. Fix that you guys-Surely you have a copy editor somewhere ? (Sixth Grade English Grammar book might help?" h a ha ha ha ha good thing the video was really good!!

    Really doubt Ewan McGregor laughed TBH. It would've probably been in the bloopers. I think he was going for a sad/"aw fuck. i can't believe you've done this" expression.

    I feel like fmj should have got on the list because not only was the grin scene unscripted but so was most of Lee Ermy's dialogue. So it was TWO unscripted moments

    I can't sit thru a 10 min explanation of why something is supposed to be funny. why can't they just show the clip and let us laugh. It's way overexplained and that ruins it. Give people credit, we'll figure it out.

    Wayne's World when Garth asks Wayne if he finds Bugs Bunny attractive when he puts on a dress and plays a girl bunny. Mike Myers loses it, and it's kept.

    I just don't understand why there were no clips from Carol Burnett Show. That could have filled the top ten on its own. For that matter, where was Monty Python's Life of Brian's Biggus Dickus scene? That was funnier than most of this list.

    The AP toilet example is lame. He smiled after relieving himself. Naturally! How is that 'coming out of character'? I'd say it's pretty much in character, no?
