Dave Chappelle stars in the Bradley Cooper-directed A Star Is Born, which recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. To celebrate the film’s showing the comedian held a party at the Masonic Temple following its screening, with the event featuring appearances from Frédéric Yonnet and Lukas Nelson, Willie Nelson‘s son.

However, one of the more notable moments came from Chappelle himself, who said the following about A Star Is Born:

“Tonight is the first time I’ve seen myself in a good-ass movie.”

The quote was reported by the New York Times’ Kyle Buchanan, as well as the Toronto Star. And it seems that the internet doesn’t agree with Chappelle’s statement.

A number of people have responded to the tweet with their own favorite Chappelle film appearances, with users mentioning everything from Half Baked and You’ve Got Mail to Con Air and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. You can read some of the responses below.

In A Star Is Born, Chappelle portrays Noodles, a close friend of the film’s main character Jackson Maine (played by Bradley Cooper).

The latest remake of the film — this marks the third one — A Star Is Born tells the story of the romantic and creative relationship between accomplished singer Jackson Maine (Cooper) and aspiring artist Ally (Lady Gaga). Along with handling the lead role, Cooper also assumes the role of director, co-producer, and screenplay co-writer.

Cooper’s A Star Is Born drops on October 5.
