Emma Watson Mixed it Up – This Is The End
Watson walked out of the set of the apocalyptic comedy film This Is the End because she was too uncomfortable doing a scene. However, when she found the extra motivation to do the improvised scene, she dropped one of the funniest bloopers of all time. The scene takes place at James Franco’s home, where a star-studded party is taking place. Craig Robinson’s and Emma’s characters were questioning Jay Baruchel’s character about his film preferences. The Harry Potter actress said “March of the Penguins! C’mon, Nicole Kidman, a tap-dancing penguin?” Baruchel corrected her by saying, “That’s Happy Feet,” which caused all of the actors and crew members to laugh.
Melissa McCarthy Loses it – This Is 40
Despite having a minor credit in the iconic film, McCarthy managed to make the lead cast laugh.
In the movie, Ghostbusters, the actress played a furious mom who was angry at her co-leads, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, because the two warned her son after he said mean things to their daughter. The screen couple could barely stay in character during McCarthy’s nearly two-minute rant. “I would like to rear up and jackknife my legs and kick you both in the f****** jaw with my foot bone,” she exclaimed to Rudd and Mann. “I wish my f****** foot would go right through your skull… Probably I’m gonna start with Karen Carpenter’s head,” were some of her lines that made the two laugh. She undeniably deserves more credit for what she’s done for this scene.
After almost a decade, this scene went viral in 2019 as McCarthy was nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards for her film Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Will Ferrell made Kevin Hart Laugh – Get Hard
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, two of Hollywood’s most famous comedians, teamed up as lead credits for the film Get Hard in 2015. There was one scene in particular where the crew couldn’t get a good shot because Hart couldn’t stop laughing. It was the scene in which the two were in a car, with the former holding a knife to his head. Ferrell mouthed his lines as if he were drunk or hallucinating, while Hart tried so hard to stay in character but couldn’t hold it together and burst out laughing. Even the people in the room couldn’t help themselves, given how amusing Will Ferrell’s facial expression was.
Ronan and Star-Lord’s dance challenge – Guardians Of the Galaxy
The first Guardians of the Galaxy film was released in 2014 and was an unexpected hit with a huge following. Given that Chris Pratt was a member of the main cast, everyone expected there to be some amusing scenes.
When antagonist Ronan the Accuser and protagonist Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, clashed, the latter challenged the former to a dance-off in order to keep him distracted so that his friends could retrieve the infinity stone from him. In the final cut, Lee Pace’s character simply stood there staring at Chris Pratt, but in the behind-the-scenes cut, the former accepted the challenge, and all of the characters, including the extras, grooved.
R-rated Roast from T.J. Miller – Deadpool
Ryan Reynolds received the lead role in this 2016 film, which was a box office credit upon its initial release. Aside from the hilarious scene in the final cut, there were a few that didn’t make the cut but are just as funny if not more.
TJ Miller revealed that he recorded numerous comedic lines for a specific scene but didn’t use them because the degree of offensiveness was too high, even for this film. Miller’s character was horrified by Reynolds’ character in an exchange of lines with Wade Wilson, also known as Deadpool. “You look like somebody turned your face inside out and then just left it there, but then you got in a house fire,” he exclaimed. He also added, “God, you look like a house fire in another house fire.”
Hammerless Thor – The Avengers
The first Avengers film was released in 2012, and it introduced the original members of this mighty band of heroes. Aside from the badass stunts, the film also has some hilarious scenes, particularly from Thor, who frequently takes credit for being the strongest member of the team. In one scene, he had a fight with Captain America, and both of them found themselves reaching for their weapons. The former had no trouble catching it, whereas the latter struggled. Instead of catching it, he juggled the lightweight hammer prop like a ball in the air.
