  Okay, this week I am having a Leone-thon where every afternoon at one I'm watching all of the Leone films I have (I mean one a day).  Anyway, seeing as I hadn't seen any of these films in months (in case you couldn't guess, I'm up to DYS tomorrow) (and I hadn't seen GBU in almost two years!!!  Shocked), I had forgotten how humorous these films were.  And the subject line speaks for itself: which film do you think was the most hilarious?  I don't mean so bad it's hilarious, but (except in GBU, I could never forget Tuco) I had forgotten how amusing (to an extent) these films were, though it's off-color humor, I'll grant.

  I'll go out on a limb and say GBU is going to be the favorite, and it's certainly got my vote.  Tuco stole the show, and I hadn't laughed nearly that hard in quite awhile as when I watched GBU Tuesday.

I think it's a toss up between GBU and FODynamite.I find lots of FOD helarious,the first meetings between Sean and Juan,Jaun on the carriage at the start,the political prisoners in the bank,but most of the humour goes about half way through,it becomes more serious.GBU though is funny all the way throughI find really funny pretty much all the stuff with Tuco,particularly the list of crimes said as he is about to be hanged,and his relationship with Blondie.

That said,there is a lot that is funny in OUATIW which becomes more apparent in successive viewings......

Umm. FOr me it's between GB&U or for a few dollars more.  (The scene with LVC and Kinski always creases me up - '10 minutes you'll be smoking in hell').
GB&U - I'm lauging now (i'm at work so i'm getting strange looks) at Tuco saying - 'you wanna know who's son you are....' You know the rest!

Cheyenne has his moments of dry humour in OUATITW

Cheyenne:(Says something allergory about Romans and the new Railway Merchents)

Harmonica: "They didn't have dollars in them days?"

Cheyenne: "Nah but.... Son a Bitches' "

That and "Mr Cho Cho"


But Tuco 'The Rat' Ramierez wins over all. When blonde takes him in the first time. It feels Improvised. Hes like a quick-fire stand up comedian.

"One b&$!&%d  goes in and another comes out!"

Very funny. Grin Grin Grin
