  • The Most Absurd Deleted Scenes of All Time

    Scenes that were wisely left on the cutting room floor. As for Cameron Crowe...what the hell was he thinking?

      In Vacation, according to Chevy Chase, the original version would have had a trail of blood running down the highway behind the station wagon. Poor Fido. They decided that was a bit much for a comedy.

        My all-time fav deleted scene is definitely Ferrell throwing beer-bottles at the wall in old-school... Genius.

          The scene where Kate Hudson says the girlfriend's name a million times also totally didn't work, though I suspect that was because Kate Hudson just isn't a particularly talented actress.

          Crowe just couldn't resist doing almost the exact same scene though in his next film Elizabethtown with Kirsten Dunst repeating "you failed" a million times.

          Of course, Elizabethtown plays like a movie constructed of nothing but deleted scenes.

            I have to agree about "Almost Famous". The scene's included as an extra on the deluxe "Untitled" DVD (essentially the director's cut), and even for a laugh it's unwatchable: a handful of people (including Crowe's mother, I believe) sitting around a living room listening to the damned song. For 8+ minutes. Astonishing that he would even consider shooting it.

              Thought Bloom was a huge miscast. That movie could have been amazing. So sad.

                I really don't think it could have been. After seeing the movie, I tried to figure out how I would rewrite it to make it work, and it would have required it to become practically a different movie entirely.

                It didn't help that Zack Braff beat him to the "L.A. guy returns to his hometown for his parent's funeral and meets a wacky girl who reminds him of the value of truly living" thing with Garden State by about a year. Crowe must have wanted to punch him.

                    I think what is so interesting about this film though, is how many writers have thought about how they would rewrite it. Most People do seem to at least love the circumstances and town's setting. -- from there, the opinions difer. But in order for writers to want to rewrite, I think it must be resonating on some level with people -- and I think alot of the strong feelings of disdain for Etown is the frustation of f-ing up what could have been a really good film. Just my two...

                      Actually, I think it's just the pedigree that people respond to. We saw this poster with a really great cast, and we know what Cameron Crowe films are like, but when we saw the movie, there was nothing redeeming about it, which is what was so frustrating.

                      For it to be successful, it would have had to be a fundamentally different film.
