Watch: '100 Greatest Shut Ups In Film' Will Not Stifle Your Laughter

We've featured plenty of fantastic montages and compilation videos that chronicle everything from nearly every instance of the Wilhelm screen on film, to a brief history of opening credit sequences. While some show true editing talent, others are just a basic collection of great clips from a bunch of different films. And that brings us to the 100 Greatest Shut Ups in FIlms with characters, creatively, and mostly vulgarly, telling everyone to "Shut up." However, with this video featuring scenes from The Departed and other R-rated film, there's plenty of salty language that pretty much makes this NSFW. Watch the video below!
Here are the 100 Greatest Shut Ups in Film via BuzzFeed:
Thanks to YouTube user mewlists (the man behind the 25 Greatest Unscripted Scenes in Movies) for putting this together. Honestly, editing all these clips together just might make them funnier than they were in the context of the films themselves. Some of my personal favorites include Steve Carell's perfect delivery of, "Shut up, Dave!" to Paul Rudd in The 40-Year Old Virgin or bitter Jeff Anderson's quick and spiteful "Shut the fuck up, Gobot," from Clerks II.
And it's no surprise that Al Pacino and Samuel L. Jackson can be heard plenty of times, and there's even some touching uses of the phrase like in Jerry Maguire. Of course, I think my absolute favorites come from Adam Sandler in Billy Madison, defintely John Goodman in The Big Lebowski and finally Philip Seymour Hoffman in Punch-Drunk Love. That's that Mattress Man. For a list of all the movies in the video, check out the YouTube page right here. Did your favorite make the cut?
