The movie East of Eden is hilarious in contrast to the novel. John Steinbeck and Elia Kazan seemed to have seen the movie through different perspectives. Cheesy saying and disgraceful acting made even the serious parts of the movie funny.
The first part that was funny about the movie was that Kazan decided to start the movie about in the middle of the novel which left out a huge part of the plot development. It brings tears of laughter to my eyes trying to picture an individual who is attempting to figure out the whole movie without knowing the real Cathy. Secondly, the laughter continues with the ferris wheel scene. Abra tells Cal that she is in love with Aron and that her and Aron are going to get married, but 30 seconds later she kisses Cal. This part demonstrates the unpredictability in the comedy of the film. Lastly, in the ensuing argument that follows the ferris wheel scene, ends with one of the greatest use of english. The words spoken by Cal can only be translated by a fictional character known as the Tasmanian Devil. This phrase is the part of the movie that turns it into a comedy because it turns a dead serious scene into the funniest part of the movie.
Overall, I highly recommend this movie to all who are looking for a good laugh.
