12 Movie Bloopers Are So Perfect That They Were Left In COMPILATION

It is a fact that there is no great movie without a great script. Talented actors use their professional acting skills to take what’s written and turn it into something even better. No matter how serious actors approach their material, there are still guaranteed to be some bloopers during production. Plenty of directors encourage their actors to as-lib because it can give a scene a better sense of authenticity. In some cases, actors do something completely unexpected and viewers just laugh about it and enjoy the moment.

It turns out that a blooper sometimes finds its way into the final cut of a movie. Whether they happened in feel-good moments or nail-biting action scenes, these movie mistakes actually made movies better.

We’ve gathered a list of bloopers that have become iconic in their own way.

#1 The Godfather (1972)

The scene where mob boss Don Vito Corleone delivers brutal orders while stroking a cat became iconic. Many might not know that the lovely cat wasn’t scripted. In fact, the cat wound up on the set and ended up on the boss’ lap during shooting.

#2 The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)

The scene where Andy Stitzer (played by Steve Carell) waxed his hair chest brings smiles to viewers. The character’s reaction is completely genuine. Steve Carell suggested experiencing the real waxing to make the scene more realistic. However, the actors regretted it and promised to never do that for a movie ever again.

#3 The Dark Knight (2008)

The Joker’s iconic clap in “The Dark Knight” wasn’t scripted. It was the result of Heath Ledger’s genius improvisation skills.

#4 Rocky (1976)

It’s hard to imagine that most of the people in the background of “Rocky” are not extras, they are normal people who had no idea they were being filmed. As a result, the scene in which Rocky runs through a market and a man throws him an orange was unscripted.

#5 The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

Do you still remember the scene where Eowyn stares into the distance and has a flag being ripped off a pole and flying away? The scene looks amazing but it was an accident.

#6 Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

The scene where Mrs. Doubtfire had to cover her face with icing didn’t go as planned. When the icing started dripping down the actor’s face, Robbie Williams had to improvise. At the moment when the icing dripped into Mrs. Sellner’s tea, he decided to say, “There you go, you’ve got your cream and your sugar now.”

#7 Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)

Because of Harrison Ford’s food poisoning, the original scene where the intense duel between Indiana Jones and the armed warrior, completely changed. Instead of a duel, Indy simply pulls out his gun and shoots the villain.

#8 Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014)

The scene where Peter drops the orb was not scripted. The clumsy Christ Pratt accidentally dropped it but quickly picked the orb up. It turned out the scene was so good that it stayed in the movie.

#9 Avengers

All scenes of Tony Stark eating are probably not scripted. In fact, during filming, Robert Downey Jr. wouldn’t stop snacking so the director couldn’t help but made the actor’s habit a part of his character.

#10 Titanic (1997)

The iconic line “I am the king of the world” wasn’t scripted. It was made up the spot by the director. James Cameron realized that nothing was working and told Leo to just say “I am the king of the world” and really sell it.

#11 The Other Guys (2010)

In “The Other Guys”, Terry says that if he were a lion and Allen were tuna, he’d swim into the ocean and eat Allen. Instead of keeping silent like in the original script, the actor improvised by explaining why a swimming lion is a ridiculous idea.

#12 Scent Of A Woman (1992)

According to the original script, Al Pacino was allowed to fall in the scene but the actor actually was good at simulating blindness. He could see and ended up stripping over a trash can.
