The Hollywood/fiction film Sweet Home Alabama contains one shot which made me laugh both times I saw+heard it. The shot happens immediately after the heroine reveals to her husband the hero that she took out all the money stored in their joint account. The first stage of his reaction is what made me laugh. He was finishing a can of beer with his stretched back when he heard her say "All of it", which froze him in that position with a pissed off expression. He then squashed the by then empty can to vent his rage. What made the shot funny was the angle it was taken from and the positioning of the actor and actress within it.
