UPI News Service, 12/21/2004
John Cleese's rant in the British movie "Monty Python's Life of Brian" has been chosen as the funniest movie scene ever, by poll of 4,000 movie fans.
The diatribe of Cleese's character Reg said, "All right, but apart from sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?"
Blockbuster's poll chose as the second funniest scene: the flatulent cowboys eating beans around the campfire from Mel Brooks's comedy "Blazing Saddles," followed by Meg Ryan's fake orgasm in "When Harry Met Sally," reported from the British comedy Web site, Chortle Tuesday.
