Making movies is a tough job that takes months of work after shooting wraps. There’s the daunting task of editing, selecting the best takes. And piecing everything together in hopes of making the perfect movie. Many directors and editors take pride in their work. enjoying the process of putting the film together to create their art. And witnessing the final vision coming together. But what happens if a significant mistake is caught? Mistakes happen, lines are forgotten, and bloopers are created. But sometimes those happy accidents end up being better than what the filmmakers originally intended.
Bloopers are an inevitable part of movie-making. While filming a movie mistake are inevitable. After all, we’re only human. But it’s the reactions to those mistakes that can be even more entertaining than the movie itself. Of course for bloopers to be more entertaining than the movie, the movie’s quality probably wasn’t what we were expecting. But everybody sure loves movie outtakes. Maybe it’s because they humanize the stars we’ve chosen to exalt. Painting them in a light where they’re really no different from us.
That’s why when I came across this video by Screen rant I wasn’t at all surprised. Some of the films included in the video are Spider-Man 3, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Iron Man 3, House of Wax, The Hangover, Men and Black II, and Suicide Squad. Sure, they caused the director to yell for another take (or maybe even break from filming for the day), but they were still entertaining enough to commit to immortality. For everyone, it is extremely satisfying to see so many things turn out right in Hollywood, but it’s also pretty entertaining when they don’t turn out so well as they get footage of their best moments.
Now, sit back and enjoy this collection of 10 bloopers that you would rather watch than the movie itself.
