While we usually only get to see the finely crafted and edited version of a movie, there are many takes and retakes that happen on set. Most of the bloopers are usually only used as a fun element to showcase at the end of the movie but, every now and again, actors go off script and it's so good that it makes it into the final cut.
Dwayne Johnson is known for his witty comebacks and sense of humour, but when his chirp was perfectly timed while filming The Fast And The Furious 6’s family scene, the directors decided to keep it in.
The Rock’s comeback relating to the now infamous baby oil line was so funny and unexpected, that you can actually see Ludacris spitting out beer as he’s laughing.
The police line-up scene in The Usual Suspects is one for the books. Not only because it’s such an iconic movie with some of the biggest names in blockbuster history, but also because the scene went totally off script.
Apparently, the scene was meant to be incredibly serious, but the cast just finished their lunch break and actor Benicio del Toro couldn’t stop farting. The other actors couldn’t stop laughing and while it wasn’t scripted at all, the director kept it in because it simply just worked.
In Django Unchained, Leonardo DiCaprio accidentally cut his hand on a real glass when he slammed his fist on the table during the dinner scene. DiCaprio thought it was a prop glass and only realised it wasn’t when he felt the pain and saw the blood seeping from his hand.
But, the Oscar winner is such a good actor that he stayed in character and even went on to rub the blood in Kerry Washington’s face. Director Quentin Tarantino loved the drama so much that he kept it in the movie.
Thanks to bloopers, the cinematic world turned out better than anyone could have expected.
