5 Iconic Movie Scenes That Were Made Up On The Spot

Published

on

It’s extremely rare to make a whole movie that follows the script perfectly. Actors will always ad lib a few lines here and there. Some of those lines even make it into the movie. But it’s extremely rare for improvised scenes to become as iconic and memorable as the movies themselves. Here are some of the most well-known movie scenes that were completely made up on the spot, but stick with us to this day.

The Money Chant

Martin Scorcese added another masterpiece to his filmography with The Wolf of Wall Street. One of the most memorable scenes is when Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is getting lessons in stock trading by Mark Hanna, portrayed by Matthew McConaughey. Hanna pounding on his chest and chanting wasn’t even in the script, yet the scene will always stand out above the rest. Some moments don’t even need to have sound in order to be memorable, like the next one on our list.

Welcome To My Chocolate Factory

A character’s introduction sets the stage for the rest of the film. Gene Wilder’s surprise entrance as Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was left up to his comedic genius. His fall and somersault were completely unexpected, even to those on set. Wilder later said, “From that time on, no one will know if I’m lying or telling the truth.”

Kelly Clarkson!

In 40-Year-Old Virgin, Steve Carell had to get his chest mane stripped with wax. The actor had never had his hair ripped off before. Every swear word and exclamation you hear from the actor in the whole scene is completely authentic. But as you’ll see, sometimes it only takes two unscripted words to make a movie scene timeless.

Here’s Johnny!

In 1980’s The Shining, Jack Nicholson’s character slipped over the edge of sanity and went after his family with an ax. In the infamous scene, Nicholson breaches the door and says, “Here’s Johnny” in a tribute to the great Johnny Carson. Director Stanley Kubrick was living in England at the time and had no idea what the line was in reference to. Nicholson convinced him to leave it in the final cut.

These Aren’t The Lines You’re Looking For

The original Star Wars movie changed the shape of filmmaking when it was released in 1977. It also introduced us to some of our favorite movie characters. Harrison Ford completely embodied the role of Han Solo. During the filming of The Empire Strikes Back, Ford eloquently added his own improvised response to Princess Leia professing her love for him with, “I know.”
