Real bloopers

A spin-off to @Twilkes thread.

I love me some end credits bloopers. What are your favourites?

I love the ones at the end of the Rush Hour movies. It really puts into sharp context what a brilliant physical comedian Jackie Chan is. To see him muck up an INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS stunt and still be funny is something else.

An aside, but I'm not keen on end credits bloopers, particularly for every episode, as it kind of devalues some of what went on before, particularly when it's a comedy show and the bloopers are funnier than the scripted bits!

But the outtakes from Down With Love are very warm, looks like they all had a blast, and it contains a shot of David Hyde Pearce catching one of Ewan McGregor's shirt buttons in his mouth (2m11s):


Could put up lots of Seinfeld here, but my all-time favourite ever outtake (it's only really a blooper because Michael Richards stumbles a little when he starts drinking) is this - once he gets a rhythm with the smoke rings it's pure poetry, and then the smoky belch and shriek at the end, I still can't not laugh at it after fifteen years:


The take in the show was good but just not as awesome.

I love Jim Carrey. My favourite bloopers are at the end of Liar, Liar.

OVERACTOR!

My introduction to them was probably "The Cannonball Run":

I do love a good blooper reel, but the ascent of these as commodities has, I think, diminished the potential for good unscripted moments within the film or series itself.

Take, for example, the scene in the Fawlty Towers episode The Hotel Inspectors when Cleese has immense and unscripted difficulty removing a cork from a bottle of wine.  Both actors in the scene played it straight - there was no mugging, no overegging to indicate it had gone wrong, no over the top collapsing to the floor and patting each other on the back in waves of forced laughter.  Picture what would have happened if The Mighty Boosh or anyone since the late 90s had been doing it instead.

The latter would have made an adequate blooper, but because both actors played it straight and kept going, a "joke from God" (as Cleese called it) could exist in the episode itself.

Having said that, maybe the balance will tip the other way again now that DVD extras and, by association, blooper reels, are falling away.

I know there's a crazy amount of hatred for him (Gervais) on these forums, but I love the bloopers from Extras, particularly anything involving Keith Chegwin.

Community, Always Sunny and Parks & Rec have some of the best bloops.

Jerry Stiller in Seinfeld. Dunno how the actors managed to get through any takes without corpsing as his delivery is always bizarre and surprising.

DrGreggles

Michael Richards' bloopers in Seinfeld are always amazing because he's really giving it everything, but he's just too funny so someone cracks and ruins the take.
Weirdly it's rarely him - he's always in control of his lunacy.

BJBMK2

You're not wrong.


The clickbait title is slightly misleading. It's not like he rages at Jerry and the others for cracking up. But you can tell when he's in the "zone" as it were. It probably takes him quite a while to get to that place, and it must be a bit jarring suddenly breaking out of it.

Hey

Yo
Is this blooper for REEL

DrGreggles

Seen that before.
His reaction is more 'shit, I've got to do that again' than pissed off.

From what I remember he felt it was unprofessional and wasting of people's time, the corpsing anyway, think he forgave mistakes as he made a few too. His process was definitely intense though.

Julia Louis Dreyfuss corpsing is one of my favourite things. Especially as the rest of the cast often seem a bit annoyed at it. It's like when you can't stop laughing at Assembly or something.

The US Office have very funny outtakes too.

I think those outtakes are probably the ones I remember more than any other, for some reason. The bit where he screws up the papers and says "a goose" pops into my mind all the time, even though watching it again just now I didn't find it remotely funny.

He looks hard work. That blonde woman just seems annoyed.

I like Alan opening the door to Michael and trying not to laugh when he's got chocolate mousse all round his mouth.

God, that sounds so unfunny.

How could you be annoyed at JLD's giggling - it's adorable!
In fact, how could you be annoyed at JLD?

One of my faves is Larry David's "paaaaah!" laugh in the series 6 outtakes when his caretaker says "Hello?  Hello??  How you feel Mr David?" in a manner that suggests he's trying to recall the sentence as fragmented phonemes without grasping what it means.  The take is used in the episode with the laugh cut out, which is great because most sitcom arrangements would require a complete re-take and lose those moments of spontaneous brilliance.  I imagine it's a show that's assembled in the edit by endlessly trimming around corpsing and laughing, and must be quite a continuity nightmare.

That reminds me of Reece playing a debt collector in LoG and really turning it up and letting fly. Thinks he breaks an overhead light fitting when using his belt to beat Pembo. At the end you can just hear Gattis go 'fucking hell Reece!'
