Movie Bloopers That Were Too Good To Cut


Hey, accidents happen. But if you’re in a movie, sometimes accidents
can turn out to be amazing. In fact, some of the most memorable moments
in cinema were actually the result of mistakes that the filmmakers decided were too good
to leave out of the finished movie. Here’s a look at some movie bloopers that
were too good to cut. Guardians of the Galaxy Alfred Hitchcock coined the term “MacGuffin”
to describe important objects upon which the plot of a movie revolves — like the briefcase
in Pulp Fiction, or the Infinity Stones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As any comic fan will tell you, the Infinity
Stones are incredibly important and powerful — which is why it’s so funny when Chris
Pratt, as Star-Lord, just straight up drops one. “Let us see what you brought.” It looks totally scripted, but according to
the DVD commentary, that was an actual moment of clumsiness from Pratt. But the moment works, so director James Gunn
left it in. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers As war looms and the loss of Rohan seems imminent,
Eowyn stares off into the distance as the camera reveals a wide scenic shot. As she does, a flag pole whips in the wind. And then, perfectly expressing the mood of
uncertainty and destruction to come, the flag rips off the pole and flies away. The metaphor was not only beautifully apt,
but it was also totally accidental. Director Peter Jackson didn’t plan for this
— it was just really windy on that day of shooting. The Princess Diaries This movie made Anne Hathaway a star, and
the DVD has become a slumber party classic for little kids. It’s a classic ugly duckling story of a girl
named Mia who finds out she’s the heir apparent to a small European kingdom. But she’s so very awkward, y’see, falling
down all the time, as she learns how to carry herself with the grace and poise befitting
a royal. At one point, Mia is dancing on some bleachers
in the rain at her private school with her best friend when she takes a pretty nasty
tumble. “…look just right, remember-” “Woo! Hahahaha!” That’s no stuntwoman, and that wasn’t supposed
to happen: Hathaway really did slip, falling hard. But it fit in so well with the character’s
awkwardness that it was kept in the finished film. Casino Royale The idea was simple: Bond-girl rides a horse
along the beach, and Daniel Craig swims up to her. But as he floated up, the actor ran into a
sand bank, giving him no choice but to quickly stand up on his feet and stomp out of the
water. Suddenly, Bond is standing there, muscled-up
body on display, along with some very revealing swim trunks. Casino Royale was a reboot of the Bond series,
so most fans assumed this was an homage to the classic scene from the first Bond film,
Dr. No, where Ursula Andress emerges from the ocean. But it was a actually just a lucky accident. Raiders of the Lost Ark Indiana Jones wasn’t the only raider of the
lost ark in, uh, Raiders of the Lost Ark. There was also evil French archaeologist Rene
Belloq, who suffers a doubly horrible fate: not only does his head explode… “Aaahhh!” …but he also eats a fly! Well, okay, not exactly. During a closeup of actor Paul Freeman, a
fly appears to crawl right down Belloq’s throat. Freeman later revealed that the insect actually
flew away after crawling around his lip for a moment, but some judicious editing after
the fact made it look like the cold blooded Belloq just ate the fly instead. The Usual Suspects The police lineup scene early in the movie
is crucial to the plot of The Usual Suspects: it’s where all the criminal main characters
meet to arrange a big heist. As each character steps forward to read the
line police told them to read, none of them can contain their laughter, perfectly setting
up the dynamic between the characters as well as their collective disregard for the cops. (Benicio’s got the giggles) But the laughing wasn’t in the script, and
it wasn’t a directorial note. No, the cast of The Usual Suspects couldn’t
stop laughing because actor Benicio Del Toro couldn’t stop farting. Co-star Kevin Pollak says he farted on “like
12 takes in a row.” But, director Bryan Singer got so mad with
the cast’s inability to focus that he yelled at them … which probably only made them
laugh harder. Rain Man Speaking of farts, Rain Man is that rare film
that won the Oscar for best picture and also included one of the most memorable fart scenes
in movie history. Brothers Raymond and Charlie are in a phone
booth together, and Raymond passes gas. “Uh oh fart.” “Ya Charlie Babbot I’ll hold.” “Uh oh fart.” “Did you fart Ray?” “Fart” “How can you stand that?” “I don’t mind it.” That was real, and accidental. Stars Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise both managed
to stay completely in character, setting up a classic moment in cinematic fart history. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

    Look Chris Pratt says he’s a Christian BUT he divorced his wife and married a woman 15 years younger and richer. He has a kid with Faris and then says his new wife wedding was “happiest of his life”. I think he’s a social climbing ASSHOLE.

    In The Mummy, when the Warden anxiously moves around confused and then jumps off the flaming boat, the actor's confused movements were real and not an act, but they kept it in the movie.

    The flag was 100% supposed to rip off in lotr you stupid cunt hahaha. It just wasn’t expected to float that far. That’s the ‘unscripted’ part. But they released the flag on purpose

    One of the more memorable lines in movie history was from Rain Man also.

    Charlie: "Raymond! Raymond! Am I using you? Am I using you?"
    Raymond: "Yes."
    Charlie: "SHUT UP! He is answering a question from a half an hour ago!"

    Did anyone understand the Alfred Hitchcock-coined term that the narrator said at 0:24?? (about "important objects upon which the plot of the movie revolves")  Sounded like "magothen", or something?  I guess it's not that important if I never heard of it before; i.e., no one in the media–at least the US media–ever uses it to my knowledge, but…

    What about Pet Sematary (original) when Louis falls out of bed and smashes his forehead against the nightstand?
    That certainly couldn't possibly have been scripted, it's such a laugh out loud moment in an otherwise somber horror film. And it looks like it seriously hurt.
    He stays in character though

    Best blooper in a movie. American Grafitti. Terry the Toad crashes his Vespa into newspaper box in front of the burger joint. Totally unscripted but one of the funniest scenes in the movie.

    How about the time Leonard Dicaprio cut his hand on a piece of glass on Django Unchained and continued to act when his hand was bleeding…

    Thank you for not being cheesy and mentioning the two classics… "hey I'm walkin' here" and "you talkin' to me." EVERYONE lists these, and EVERYONE knows about them by now.
    It's said that the entire Usual Suspects script started with the idea of the police lineup scene and gravitated from there on its own volition.

    Another Aragorn one; in The Two Towers, when he kicked an Orc helmet and fell to his knees with an anguished scream, that's actually because he broke his toes.

    Alfred Hitchcock did NOT coin the term MacGuffin, they are NOT important objects – they are the very opposite in fact – and the Infinity Stones are NOT examples of them. Can't you ignorant idiots get ANYTHING right???

    Didn't mention the accident in Titanic where the main female character's "date" broke plates and a couple wineglasses in a fit of rage.

    Another from Lord of the Rings: I believe it was in the first film, after Boromir dies, Aragorn kicks an orc's helmet, drops to his knees, and cries out in anguish. Evidently, that scream was 100% real, as Viggo Mortensen broke his toe when he kicked the helmet.

    You missed a small but good one: In "Die Hard" when the armored cop gets snagged by the thorns on a rosebush as the SWAT team approaches the Nakatomi building and let's out an anguished "Ouch!" Total accident.

    Apocalypse Now – The scene where Martin Sheen was so drunk he accidentally punched his hotel room mirror and really did badly cut himself but finished the scene covered in his own blood before being taken to hospital. Being John Malkovich – where Malkovich gets accidentally hit on the head by an empty beer can thrown from a passing car and not forgetting the famous 'Bring the Cannoli' scene from The Godfather where the actor forgot his lines and improvised.

    There’s a scene in LotR 2 where Aragorn walks out of frame by the camera and walks into the camera which shakes the scene. AND THEY KEPT IT IN BUT NO ONE’S TALKING ABOUT IT!

    1. Why did Princess Diaries seem to require giving SO much more background than the rest?
    2. And why was walking up, turning, and walking back down the bleachers described as "dancing"?

    You know an actor's a pro when they screw up and completely manage to stay in character. I loved "Rain Man". However, since I found several years ago that Tom Cruise is a Scientologist, I stopped watching anything that has him in it.

    The Bond story is bollocks, course it was fucking scripted. They had his double walk out half a dozen times to get the focus sorted before Daniel Craig shot it.

    Another Raiders of the Lost Ark blooper was at the very beginning of the film. When Indy was running from the boulder, he appeared to stumble before getting back up. Harrison Ford actually did stumble, but it fit so perfectly that Steven Spielberg just left it in!
