10 Great Deleted Movie Scenes You Should Never Miss
A deleted scene refers to footage that has been removed, censored, or replaced in the final version of a film. Reasons for removal of a scene including running time, disruption of narrative flow, requests that it be altered.
We can’t see them in the original theatrical releases, but thanks to the invention of DVD/Blu-ray, we have the chance to watch them as bonus materials, sometimes they are even featured along with the director’s commentary, which explains why the scenes are deleted.
Most of the time, these deleted scenes are good(otherwise how would they shoot it in the first place?), some of them are golden. Today let’s discover these lost gems which would’ve improve the movie if they were not taken out.
10. Knocked Up
The Scene: “Who the fuck does Ang Lee think he is, man?” rants Jonah (Jonah Hill). He’s talking to Alison (Katherine Heigl) about Brokeback Mountain. “What am I, six years old? I can’t see a guy getting sucked off by another guy?” Oh my…
Why It Should Be Kept: Though Jonah makes some surprisingly salient (albeit X-rated) points about Hollywood’s double standards when it comes to nudity, this convo doesn’t really have much to do with the film’s plot. But it’s still comedy gold.
9. High Fidelity
The Scene: It’s not so much the content of this one that’s crazy, but more the fact that it’s crazy it was cut from the film. It’s one of the strongest scenes in the book, as Rob (John Cusack) goes to buy some records from a bitter housewife (Beverly D’Angelo).
Why It Should Be Kept: Probably they cut it because it was too much of a downer, as it offers a glimpse into a rather depressing future for Rob. Shame, D’Angelo’s fantastic.
