I love deleted scenes and outtakes - so much that whenever we watch a movie my husband always sighs with resignation and waits patiently when I check for them.

And alternate endings are like the icing on the cake!

So what are your favorite outtakes, deleted scenes and alternates?

Old School

Mitch (Wilson) is telling Beanie (Vaugn) they are going to arrest him for sleeping with his bosses underage daughter.

Beanie responds "Arrest you for what? Being awesome?"

The outtake at the end of Being There. It was clear when watching the movie that there was supposed to be a scene of Chance delivering the foul-mouthed message the hood told him to deliver, but, when the time came for it, it wasn't there.

Over the final credits they showed it. It was hilarious -- Peter Sellers doing a long expletive-laden "gangsta" type monologe, in his deadpan "Chance the Gardener" voice. It was probably just too funny to be left in.

On the Season 2 DVD set of Alias, the outtakes feature a montage of Jennifer Garner walking smack into a variety of set peices.

The outtakes from "Meet the Fokkers" were some of the funniest I've ever seen. It was fun to see Blythe Danner, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand, and Robert DeNiro just clowning around and making mistakes. They were clearly having a great time. I think the best part was just seeing DeNiro so relaxed and goofy.

In Waiting for Guffman, there's a deleted scene which is funnier than anything in the film. They're doing the auditions for the play, and this one gal comes in and does this whole routine about getting revenge on the brother who molested her as a child. At one point, she's just screaming, "Who's on top and who's on bottom now, Billy?"

After the credits of "Grumpier Old Men", the litany of euphemisms for having sex that Burgess Meredith comes up with is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. His delivery of the line, "he's ridin' the skin boat...ta TUNA TOWN!!!!!" is awesomely funny! Actually, it was probably funnier than anything in the rest of the film.

In Ali G second season DVD there is an outake (actually it is billed literally as "Unseen Sh6t") where Borat is on a farm in Texas where they "hunt" exotic animals -- at one point Borat gets the Good Ol' Boy to agree with Borat (clearly not kidding) words to the effect "yeah it would be great if we could be allowed to hunt Jews here as well." Also Borat shows them how they call animals in Khazikstan -- by doing a crazy dance in his underwear -- not sure why it didn't air it was great.

The plot of Dungeons & Dragons (the movie) makes almost no sense.

Amonst the deleted scenes, there are two crucial scenes where they explain the plot.

What makes them particularly precious is that the reasons the scenes were baleeted was because they were hugetastic special effects scenes and they ran out of . . . something. Time? Money? RAM? Or maybe patience, like the SFX team just said, "Guys, this movie beyond lame. We're going to go play D&D for real. Later."

One of the deleted scenes is the main character acting in front of a blank bluescreen. The disembodied voice of an unrendered dragon gives important information about why the characters go on to do almost everything else they do in the movie, as the main character reacts very convincingly to the bluescreen. (In the movie, the character jumps into a magical scroll then jumps back out and says to the other characters, "Hey! We're going to [place]!" with basically no explanation, and the other characters say, "Rock! Rock on!")

The other scene is also a bluescreen dealie, but they've added in some placeholder video . . . of a paper puppet. As in, a handdrawn dragon, cut out and pasted to a popsicle stick. In the bluescreen, it is all blown up and gigantic, and they jiggle it up and down as the main character reacts. And the puppet explains the plot.

I can think of many other movies that would be greatly improved by a popsicle-stick puppet explaining the plot at some point.

Ronin's alternate ending changes the movie's aftertaste. It's really depressing.

The extra scenes in Wild Things. I don't know if they really count, as they were scattered among the credits, but if you stayed and watched, they changed the whole freaking movie! Everything you knew was wrong!

The anime Berserk has some truly classic outtakes from the American dubbing. It's especially funny as the anime itself is a very grim series about mercenaries, and then the outtakes are completely zany and silly. Stuff like Griffith's voice actor randomly bursting into song (including stirring renditions of "I Will Always Love You", Metallica's "One", and the Little Mermaid's "Part of Your World"). Or the narrator starts arguing with the director and declaring, "Who is Jon? I am the voice of God hovering above!" and in the background you hear the director calling for security. Or a tender moment between two characters, when the voice actor goes off script and starts saying, "My love for you... is like a big truck. Berserker. Would you like some making fuck, BERZERKER!"

One of the tapes of the anime Video Girl Ai had this amazing clip where the voice actors went crazy with the accents. They dubbed a scene of the girl, fresh out of the shower, confronting the milquetoast lead, using a variety of accents -- redneck, Brooklyn, upper-class British, etc.

The bit in Pirates of the Caribbean where they edited the ship battle sequence using audio from a car-chase gunfight was also hilarious.

The otherwise forgettable Rush Hour 2 had a great bit where Chris Tucker's cellphone went off during a scene, and he answered it by chewing out the caller for calling him at work. At one point he yells, "NO you can't talk to Jackie Chan!" A few moments later, he hands the phone to Jackie, who proceeds to yell at the caller for calling Tucker at work. (Maybe it was the original Rush Hour. I don't exactly recall.)

Easily the funniest is the outtakes from the farting in the elevator scene from The Pink Panther. Peter Sellers could not keep a straight face and he messed up about 20 takes. The first time I saw the outtakes I laughed so hard my cheeks and sides hurt.

Deleted scenes in Spinal Tap. Verrrry funny.

I liked the deleted scenes fromB]Galaxy Quest[/B], not to mention Terminator 2, Aliens, and the Abyss -- the movies were much better with them in, and I was annoyed that they were removed.


Funniest outtakes were the ones of burgess Meredith coming up with all the cutesy euphemisms for sex at the end of Grumpy Old Men (and Grumpier Old Men)

The DVD of the great mockumentary This is Spinal Tap has a long sequence of outtakes that practically make a whole other version of the movie. They just had too much funny for two hours. I understand the same is true of the DVD of Best In Show.

From The Two Towers, the scene of Eowyn singing the lament for Theodred just about broke my heart, and made me appreciate the job Miranda Otto did with the character that much more.

Speaking of, the alternate ending to Clerks was much more fitting if not infinitely more depressing.

One deleted scene in Driven (http://imdb.com/title/tt0132245/combined) shows a bit of Tanto's (Stallone) daily routine before he gets the call to get back behind the wheel. The whole thing is very reminicient of the opening of Firefox (http://imdb.com/title/tt0083943/combined) in which we see Eastwood's character being recruited to get back in the cockpit.

I love those outtakes! Especially the 'na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Batman!' on the last DVD.

In Fight Club, Helena Bonham Carter is just finished having sex with Brad Pitt. She screams: "I want to have your abortion." A great line in of itself. Apparently, the censors were distressed with it, and wanted Fincher to change it. Fincher, the artist he is, eventually relented to the studio's request, against his better judgement. In the outtakes, HBC now says, "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school."The studio begged for reinstatement of the original line. :p

You got that backwards. The line left in was the "grade school" comment. The alternate unused scene is the "abortion"comment.

I love outtakes from any Jackie Chan movie. That guy is amazing. I also liked the karaoke scene at the end of Shrek.

Volume 1 of Princess Tutu has some great outtakes from the English dub. One involves the voice actor for Duck quacking into her line, then when the duck on the screen stops running around, "God bless America." A second one between the female leads--"Are you looking for something?" "Yeah, I need your boyfriend." (Actually what she's looking for, but not the proper line :))

But my favorite one makes fun of the pseudo-romanticism between two of the male characters. I'll just quote it rather than explain.

"Princess Tutu. She touched me."
"The same place I touched you? That bitch."

What makes this even funnier is that Helena Bonham-Carter didn't get the joke at all - she's British and had no idea what "grade school" meant. She says on the commentary that she assumed it was high school, and it wasn't til she heard people laughing at the line that she thought to ask.

As hinted at earlier, the deleted scenes from Best in Show are hilaaaarious.

As unhinted at earlier, so are the deleted scenes from Dodgeball.

The Terminator DVD has a deleted scene I really like. I can understand why it was taken out -- the movie is an action movie with a relentless pace, and the scene would have brought it to a halt. But it's a good scene, and pure traditional science fiction.

In it, Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese, out in the California countryside, have an argument about what to do which is based on two different concepts of time travel. Reese believes that the future is set in stone, and all they can do is try to ensure that Sarah survives to be the mother of John Connor. Sarah, on the other hand, believes that if it's necessary for them to prevent the Terminator from changing history, that means they can change history on their own and keep the nuclear war from happening by preventing the construction of Skynet.

This reflects a theme explored in tons of science fiction stories since the '40s, and one that (if you forget about all the overblown action sequences for a moment) dominates the trilogy of Terminator movies.

Also in the scene, Reese becomes overwhelmed by his surroundings: grass, flowers, a flowing stream, clear blue sky -- all things he never saw growing up in the nightmarish post-apocalpytic world of the future. He starts crying, and says, "This is too beautiful. I'm not supposed to see this." Actually quite touching.

"Love, Actually" had a number of very good outtakes. Unfortunately, in a movie that long, something (in this case, a lot of somethings) had to go.

My favorite deleted portion involved Liam Neeson as a new widower with a young stepson. He's surfing the internet for porn, and finds that his screen is frozen up, while filled with obscene images he can't get rid of. At that moment, his stepson's grandfather stops by for a visit, eager to show Liam a new golf site he's found on the web.

Grandpa immediately goes to Liam's computer and sees all the obscene stuff. Liam pretends to be shocked, and runs to his stepson saying, "I'll give you 100 pounds, if you'll just agree to everything I say." The kid takes the rap for looking at the dirty web sites... and whereas Grandpa would've been furious at Liam, he takes a relaxed, "Well, boys will be boys" attitude when he's convinced his young grandson was the lecher!

Not sure if this counts, but Tenacious D's DVD has some great stuff on their "on the road" documentary. The scene with Lee doing the XXX rated version of "9 to 5" had me rolling.

At one point, she's just screaming, "Who's on top and who's on bottom now, Billy?"

I always thought she was doing a scene from Flowers in the Attic. From one of the novels not from the movie version which is infinitely funnier.


My favorite cut scene from Best in Show is the one where Guest as Harlan Pepper is showing the camera his other hobby and he opens a door to a large barn and beachballs spill out. There's this moment where it looks clearly that Guest as an actor didn't know what would be behind the door and is surprised and then continues and explains why he has a beachball collection. I always assumed they (Guest and Levy) came up with that bit and Guest told Levy to surprise him.

For the best outtakes and bloopers, you have to go way back- any Burt Reynolds film from the late 70's and 80's will have you laughing your ass off! Burt & company were just hilarious people who couldn't help but crack each other up. He & DeLuise could go all day without getting a usable scene shot...

Also, my favorite part of a Jackie Chan movie is always the outtakes they run over the credits. Hysterical.
