A love scene from the James Woods-starring biopic Rudy: The Rudy Giuliani Story has gone viral this week, thanks in part to the star-making laughter of the Twitter user who posted the clip.
The scene features Woods as Rudy Giuliani and Penelope Ann Miller as journalist and future Rudy wife Donna Hanover taking a moonlit stroll along the beach while intoning cringeworthy dialogue.
Film and TV producer Marie Bardi filmed the clip by pointing her phone at the TV, which meant she could be heard completely losing it in the closing seconds of the scene — an enhancement that added to her tweet’s virality.

I’d like to go back to a time when I didn’t know this existed—to a simpler time. To a better time. To a time of innocence and joy. To about 30 seconds ago https://t.co/MpXfOgN7LU
