EOE as a comedy

Maybe I'm just a sick son of a gun, but I've always seen End of Evangelion as one of the funniest films of all time: right up there with stuff like Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs, and Airplane!.

+ The legendary "Hospital Scene" where Shinji accidentally exposes Asuka's chest -- I always play "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye between the moment he gasps and the reveal of his splooge-covered hand.
+ The failure of Asuka in defeating the EVA-series: I keep imagining Mario power-up sound-effects for when the Harpies regenerate. Followed by "Wah-wah" music as she gets repeatedly skewered.
+ Ritsuko trying to destroy Nerv while Gendo aims his gun at her... and Caspar favors the man who called her a hag in life. Trim everything between "You picked your man over your own daughter!?" to the instant Gendo pulls the trigger and cue "the wah-wah horns" as she plummets into the LCL lake.
+ Misato baiting Chris Hanson with Shinji... and dying fifteen seconds later. Thirty-one more years left until retirement. All we need is GIR complaining "Aw, I wanted to explode!" before a blast rips her corpse apart. (Cue wah-wah horns when she bites it)
+ The fantasy scene of Asuka and Shinji in the condo just CRIES for Ren and Stimpy BGM (like "Turkey Trot"!)
+ Then there's this sequence of events:

FUYUTSUKI: "Will it become the Ark to save humankind from the nothingness of Third Impact? Or the demon that destroys us all? Our future lies in the hands of Ikari's son."

(Cut to...)

Shinji: "...they can all just die."

(Cut to various characters getting Tanged)


+ Plus Rei III and Gendo in a literal production of Farewell to Arms!


It's actually FUNNY if you look at it from my stance.

Also, when Shinji chokes Asuka

"This isn't 'will they or won't they!' This is 'I know they won't, and I don't want them to!'"

(Those of you familiar with It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will get the reference)
FROM EVANGELION:
"Acts of Man are greater than acts of God!"

"I'm saying that I love you."

NOT FROM EVANGELION:
"You are excrement. You can change yourself into gold."

Best comedy movie of all time. Fun for the kids.
It was a long, long, roundabout path...

It's even better when you watch the English dub.
