10 Mistakes That Made Great Movies Even Better

- Page 1

United Artists / LucasFilm

Making a movie is pretty difficult, and between all the factors that go into it, there's plenty of chances for something to go wrong. Sometimes, that means having to do multiple takes and spending days on difficult scenes. Other times, like in these 10 cases, it leads to amazing moments that we remember forever.

1) Zoolander - "But why male models?"

Ben Stiller forgot his lines and accidentally repeated one he'd already said, but in the end it just made Derek Zoolander even more of a lovable idiot.

2) Midnight Cowboy - "I'm walkin' here!"

After getting fed up with traffic delays from the filming of the movie, a New York cabbie sped past traffic... right into Dustin Hoffman. The result is the singularly most iconic scene from the movie.

3) The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Knife throwing

During the fight between Aragorn and Lurtz, the actor playing Lurtz was only supposed to pretend to throw the knife at Viggo Mortenson. However, the knife actually left his hand (you can see a split-second of his "oh s***" face if you look carefully), and, thinking quickly, Mortenson actually DEFLECTED IT WITH HIS SWORD.

4) Being John Malkovich - "Hey Malkovich, think fast!"

The scene just called for cars to drive by John Malkovich as he walked away angrily, but a few extras hired for the scene had snuck beers on set and got too rowdy. The can throw and look of surprise and pain on Malkovich's face are completely real.

These are some of the better-known ones, but the next few are even more surprising...

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and


Edward Furlong Was A Rising Star, But His Life Took A Drastic Turn That's Left Him Unrecognizable

The former teen idol had roles in iconic movies like Terminator 2: Judgement Day, American Heart, and Pet Sematary, but now Edward Furlong's name is barely remembered. The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He truly stole the show and held his own against Arnold, and managed to nab a few awards for being a breakthrough actor. TriStar PicturesThe


The Preview For The New 'Grinch' Movie Is Out And We Can't Decide How Angry To Be

Listen, I get it, remakes are easy money. You've got a built-in audience who will try to support it no matter what, but there comes a time when enough is enough right? Sure, the Jim Carrey version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas was already a remake of the original cartoon that we all grew up with, but then we had both. One perfect cartoon that gave us the exact telling of the book, and then one amazingly hilarious live-action version that expands the world we already loved. That was enough though. One of each. Live-action, perfect. Cartoon, classic. That's
