I’ve learned a lot about laughing at times / situations when most adults don’t laugh and/or when it’s considered inappropriate by social norms theory (ie at a fail video such as a person falling down or getting hurt). Social Psychologists have developed many possible reasons that can be attributed to this phenomenon along with fully developed theoretical paradigms, “Relief Theory” and “Social Superiority Theory” are two that often come up.
Q: What are examples of movies which depict some of the most skillfully concocted banter?
Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead:

1. Greeting- Instead of a handshake or “pound” the characters press hands together as they would in a correctional facility facing each other separated by thick, wire-reinforced, sound-proofed glass. When they do it out in the world, there is no glass so when they press hands it’s a gentle gesture, it almost looks like a slow-motion high 5, but without the smack, leaving a much more personalized connection (emphasized in the film by the accompanying deep eye-contact, that clearly has a lot of non-verbal communicating behind the gesture).
