On The Editing Room Floor



Evidently this scene is cut out of the upcoming Knocked Up. Is it really or is it just another brilliant marketing scheme for this movie. Because if it is, I would have to ask why? Is it because it was the most unfunny part in the movie? If that's true then this may be the funniest movie ever created and might just be the silver lining in this big stinky turdy summer of remakes and sequels.

This scene has exponentially increased my desire to see this film. I was gonna see it anyway, as I am a sucker for suckfest comedies.

That is why Van Wilder is in my top 5 movies list. Perhaps that was too self-revealing.

Jane said...

Okay, that was pretty funny. I was going to see the movie anyway, but that pushes up the timeline.

Ray said...

Brilliant.

You know how I know you're gay? 'Cause you're watching that clip and it makes you uncomfortable instead of making you laugh a lot.

You know how I know you're gay? Cause you were nodding your head when the kid was talking about Jake getting a mouthful of Ledger. And then you said "ahmen, sister."

Garrett said...

Funny stuff. I like that kid.

I saw the movie this weekend, and I'm more intrigued by this scene now. Where would this have taken place and at what point in the story? I'm trying to imagine a setup for these two characters sitting together in what obviously isn't the stoners' house. Is it Allison's couch? And if so, why is he there?

I also am wondering where this scene fit, since it does look more like her apartment.

One scene that made it into the film that I didn't think fit was the online sex offender search scene. There was no other mention of sex offenders in the story, and it just stuck out like a sore thumb.

Knocked Up was a great movie, and if this scene would have stayed in, it would have still been the funniest.

KU is a really, very good movie, but it's too long by nearly a half-hour. You're right that the sex offender thing could have been cut and the Ryan Seacrest bit went on WAY too long.

What's up with every movie being 2:20 long anymore? Has Hollywood run out of competent editors?
