Scotty bumping his head was absolutely hilarious in the ST V trailer, but less so in the context of the whole movie.
What I find so interesting is that this scene kind of typifies the TOS movies jumping the shark, and yet when you send Simon Pegg through the brewery tubes in 2009 Trek as if it's a scene from Willy Wonka, that's considered brilliant moviemaking. I guess that's the difference with using a younger actor and a whole different generation of audience for you. But certainly the slapstick tone is exactly the same.
