Trading Places

His best role has to be as the crooked private investigtor in "Trading Places".

Love that scence where he's talking on the phone in one of those open-air booths, doing some underhand dealings, and there's an impatient woman standing just too close to him.

He says politely "please excuse me one moment" turns to the woman and casually says "Fuck Off".

You need to see the scene, it's the restraint that makes it funny.

Funniest scene ever. Or at least one of them.
