The top 10 funniest fights in Entertainment

(0:36-end mark from the theme from the final season of American Gladiators original run play the camera moves back to see James on top of the slab with the words “The Last Of The Americans” on it before cutting to James physically)

TLOTA: I'm James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I'm about to express are that of my own & some of yours. Great entertainment definitely needs the following. Great performances, Great writing, direction, scenery and everything else but sometimes ya gotta slug it out! (Cut to clips of the TGWTG.com Anniversary Brawl while James does a voiceover.)

TLOTA (Voiceover): And sometimes those slugfest slobber knockers can get silly and for this list I'm counting down which of these left me gasping for air in laughter in a pool of my own urine and I'm including fights from TV, Movies, Internet Videos they're all there! (Cut to James physically)

TLOTA: So get ready to rumble until you laugh your backside off, these are the top 10 funniest fights in Entertainment.

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Ten

10) Rocky Balboa vs Thunderlips from Rocky III

TLOTA (Voiceover): There's a reason it tops my "Ridiculous Rocky Moments" list but comes at the bottom of this list, it took itself too seriously. For those who missed that list, here's the gist of the moment Rocky played by Sylvester Stallone decides to take on Pro-Wrestling Champ Thunderlips played by Hulk Hogan for a charity match. The funniest lines come out of Hulk Hogan and the fact I can quote all of the lines in that scene verbatim I know which ones were meant to be funny and which ones were meant to be seriously which unfortunately puts it in the bottom of the list.

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Nine

9) All of the best brawls of "The Three Stooges"shorts

TLOTA (Voiceover): Whether they're attacking each other or a group of bad guys these guys know how to take and dish out the slapstick fighting moves like no one else. Some of my favorites have the trio taking on gangsters and once in a while the threesome takes each other on and most of the time they wind up either getting their butts kicked or wind up beating the bad guys stupid these brawls are entertaining and legendary for a reason. They're available on DVD but save your money if the shorts with Joe Besser is a part of the collection.

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Eight

8) Borat vs Azamat from "Borat"

TLOTA (Voiceover): The contentious relationship between Borat played by Sacha Baron Cohen and Azamat played by Ken Davitan really came to a head when the duo stop off at a hotel on their way to California. Azamat finds Borat's "Baywatch" book and then the two come to blows Buck ass nude and not only do the two trash the hotel room they're staying at, not only does Borat use the Camera as a weapon, the two of them make their way to a convention about some political fundraiser and the two continue their fight in the nude in the same hotel trying to kill each other as the convention is going on. That is gross out improv comedy 101!

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Seven

7) The Newscaster Battle Royale from "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy"

TLOTA (Voiceover): With Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell & David Koechner playing Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind and Vince Vaughn and his group of fellow news anchors and cameos from Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, Tim Robbins and groups of anchors the whole bunch of them go at it while throwing every reference. At one point Brick Tamland kills a guy with a trident! While in comparison the sequel tried to up the ante in terms of the brawl it lacked the intensity of the first brawl and that's why The Newscaster Battle Royale from the first "Anchorman" movie makes it worthy of being on my list.

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number six

6) The Nostalgia Critic vs The Angry Video Game Nerd "Final Battle"

TLOTA (Voiceover): This one I had to put here because the brawl and the references in it make it funnier than the jokes that were in this and that's not to say the jokes were bad but not that good. Even though they hit each other with everything including the Kitchen sink it does end in a draw and eventually in "To Boldly Flee" they do make peace but this brawl was too good not to put in here!

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Five

5) Tony Stark vs James Rhodes from "Iron Man 2"

TLOTA (Voiceover): I could've put a lot of brawls from The Marvel cinematic universe but this one tops it for me! With Tony Stark alias Iron Man knowing he's on the verge of death he decides to go bonkers and party like a socialite with a Reality TV show and with Rhodey's career on the line. Rhodey goes to the garage and hijack the Mark II armor and I don't know what makes it funny, the dialogue between Stark & Rhodes, the music, the fact it went on for so long it became so serious by the end but even though it remained humorous throughout the majority of it and makes it worth being on this list.

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Four

4) Batman & Robin vs The Joker, Riddler, Penguin and the thugs from "Batman: The Movie" (1966)

TLOTA (Voiceover): This one was chock full of onomatopoeias, crazy flying leaps, kicks and punches and all the while the one liners are flying and everyone is laughing like there is no tomorrow while everyone watches. Even Frank Gorshin who tried to hit Adam West in one scene and accidentally hit the sub busting up his hand and I'm not joking listen to the commentary on the DVD it actually happened the laughter just comes as this fight continues and while Batman & Robin come out victorious

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Three

3) The ending brawl of "Blazing Saddles"

TLOTA (Voiceover): This Brawl is the denouement of the movie. It had the citizens of Rock Ridge shouting "No More taking bullshit lying down". With the bad guys on the run the entire town decided to open a keg of Whoop-Ass! But what makes it on the list is when the fight breaks out into Warner Bros. Studio. That's right it breaks out of Rock Ridge and spills out all over the Warner Brothers lot. It gets into a musical number directed by Dom DeLuise, the commissary of Warner Brothers it gets out of hand and it is so FREAKING Hilarious but why isn't it at the number one spot, well it has a great amount of people rampaging and the humor is spot on but I found two better.

TLOTA (Voiceover): Number Two

2) Dr. Insano vs The Nostalgia Critic from "Kickassia"

TLOTA (Voiceover): This was one of the better moments in the movie especially seeing as how I'm certain this thing was intentionally meant to be bad but in a funny way but this was the cream of the crop of the funny moments in this thing especially when everyone decides to have Spoony become Insano to drop the Nostalgia Critic who is mad with power at this point seeing as how he believes he is the ruler of the acre sized area he renamed Kickassia and the two duke it out to either free or enslave Kickassia even further but eventually it ends in a stalemate after The Nostalgia Critic kills Santa Christ. But I got a chuckle out of it and makes it worthy of being Number two on my list.

TLOTA (Voiceover): And the number one funniest fight in entertainment is...

1) Donovan vs. Dusty from "The Apple Dumpling Gang"

TLOTA (Voiceover): If you haven't seen this movie, I HIGHLY recommend it! There are great performances by Bill Bixby, Susan Clark, Harry Morgan, Slim Pickens, Tim Conway & Don Knotts. But the cherry on the top of the Sundae comes after Donovan marries Dusty to help ensure that Celia, Clovis and Bobby Bradley has a good guardian so he can get to New Orleans without a problem. But literally minutes after getting married the kids and Dusty celebrate by getting a few snacks and Dusty gets a surprise as a Bed she was looking at was bought by her newlywed husband. Whoops! (Show clip of Dusty getting angry and then trying to beat the tar out of Donovan while James does a voiceover)

TLOTA: Throughout at least 99 & 9/10ths percent in this brawl Donovan is on the run and Dusty is a one woman hurricane going through the bar over a bed!

Donovan: That's it, A Bed?

Dusty: YES! (Donovan holds her hands away from him)

Donovan: The bed happens to be for the kids Dusty. With the nights getting colder they'll need a warmer place to sleep, So I bought the Brass bed for the boys and the smaller bed is for CELIA!

Dusty (Sweetly): Well why didn't you say so in the first place, then we could've avoided this little misunderstanding! (Cut to James physically)

TLOTA: And those were the top ten funniest fights in entertainment. If you got a chuckle out of  what I've done then I will admit to doing a great service today by making people laugh. I'm James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and that's my opinion, next time is my anniversary review and everyone at Team The Last Of The Americans have to get ready for it! !(Cut to obvious green screened shot of James in Grey Sweats as he runs in place with his associates running alongside him while "Gonna Fly Now" plays in the background and cut to the actual steps outside the museum as the camera angles perfectly to show the statue as James and his associates runs up the steps and does the pose of the statue with the statue in the foreground.)
