PsychExperimentFilter: Suggest some funny and sad death scenes from recent (last 15-20 years) films. Bonus points for equally funny and sad non-death scenes to use as control.

I'm ta'ing an experimental social psychology class and some of my students are running an experiment where they would like to induce positive and negative moods via film clips. The clincher is we need: a funny death scene, a sad death scene, a funny control scene (no death, preferably similar to the funny death scene) and a sad control scene (no death).
Any suggestions? We've come up with a few, but nothing stellar yet.
