18 Awkward And Out Of Place Movie Scenes That Shouldn't Have Made The Final Cut

How did these make it to the big screen?

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which awkward, out of place movie scenes bother the hell out of them. Here are some of their responses!

1. The "Does Your Mother Know" scene from Mamma Mia!

Universal Pictures

"It's so awkward and inappropriate compared to the rest of the movie and doesn't fit in at all. Looks like they were just trying to fit in another ABBA song."


2. The Martha scene in Batman Vs. Superman where they both realise their mums share a first name, and this completely changes Bruce's mentality.

Warner Brothers


"‘Why did you say that name?!?!????’"

– Destiny Grant via Facebook

"I was already not enjoying this film but at 'Martha' I was all the way done. What an absolutely asinine thought, that two diametrically opposed idealists would suddenly stop mid-brawl because their mothers both had 1940s most popular baby name. Get the fuck out of here."

– Madonna Kilpatrick-Kielion via Facebook

3. The flying car ending in Grease.

Paramount Pictures

"WHY DO THEY FLY AWAY IN A CAR? Cars don’t fly and haven’t flown during the whole rest of the movie?? Why start in the last scene????? I’m still upset."


4. Captain America kissing Peggy's niece in Captain America: Civil War.

Marvel Studios

"That's all new kinds of messed up."


5. The tracheotomy scene in The Heat.

20th Century Fox

"It was overly disgusting and gross. Totally ruined the rest of the movie."


6. The monster reveal at the end of Split.

Universal Pictures

"The end of Split where he turns into a giant, muscular monster who can climb the walls and kills people. The whole story about his multiple personalities was captivating and interesting until that happened."


7. The romance scenes between Bruce and Natasha in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Marvel Studios

"It was so out of place and there was no explanation for it whatsoever. Also, the scene where Black Widow was talking about her being forced to get sterilised and being seen as a monster or something like that."


8. The battle scene in Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Summit Entertainment

"I can see why they would want it in the movie to make it more cinematic, but it was just totally unnecessary and totally threw the movie."


9. The ghost blowjob scene from Ghostbusters.

Columbia Pictures

"Definitely Ghostbusters blowjob. Was not necessary AT ALL."


10. And the mascot blowjob scene from The Shining.

Warner Bros.

"The mascot blowjob scene in The Shining. It feels so random and unnecessary."


11. The song with King Gator from All Dogs go to Heaven.

United Artists / Rank Organisation

"I'm gonna go with the OG 'Big Lipped Alligator' moment from All Dogs Go To Heaven. I thought it was really out of place even as a child. The song 'Let's Make Music Together' has honestly been stuck in my head ever since (as well as 'Oogie Boogie's Song' from The Nightmare Before Christmas, it's the same singer/voice actor). I swear. It's been 20 years of hell. I'll never forget when I realised the haunting implications of the lyrics: Holy damn. The alligator wants to fuck that dog. I could literally feel the innocence begin to drain from my life after I realised that. I know King Gator eventually saves Charlie, but FFS couldn't they come up with a better deus ex machina than the singing lustful flamboyant alligator king?"


12. The ending of Kingsman: The Secret Service which involves the Princess of Sweden having anal sex with Eggsy in exchange for him saving the world.

20th Century Fox

"I thought the whole movie was really good and then at the end the girl lets one of the guys perform anal because he saved her. It was very sexist and ruined the movie for me."


13. The dance scene from The Shape of Water.

Fox Searchlight Pictures

"Totally took me out of the experience"


14. Zara's gruesome death in Jurassic World.

Universal Pictures

"The death of Zara the assistant was such a tonal shift from the rest of the movie. It was almost mean-spirited towards a character we barely knew. It was hyper violent and drawn out even for a series known for its kills."


15. The scene in Star Trek: Into Darkness where they unnecessarily put in a scene of Carol in her underwear.

Paramount Pictures

"The scene where science officer Carol is going to try to open/investigate a warhead on an uninhabited moon. So while she's explaining the plan to Kirk, she takes him onto the small shuttle craft and tells him to turn around while she changes clothes??? For some reason??? And of course, he turns and we get a shot of the actress in her underwear. I love that movie, but that scene has so little to do with the main plot and nothing to do with the characters' development. It was included solely to objectify Carol for the straight male gaze, and completely disrupts the movie."


16. The Kylo Ren shirtless scene in The Last Jedi.

Lucasfilm Ltd / Walt Disney Studios

"Real talk: I really enjoyed The Last Jedi. But when that Kylo Ren shirtless scene happened, I literally threw a hand up in the air and gestured to the screen. Like why? I was not alone either--I heard a woman behind me whisper 'What is the point of this? Girl, you do not have time to be distracted!'"


17. The "Cheer Up Charlie!" song from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

Paramount Pictures

"'Cheer Up Charlie' in Willy Wonka for sure!"

– Amanda Hummel via Facebook

18. Ron's hallucination of Harry and Hermione kissing naked in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

Warner Brothers

"So awkward. Why would you put an erotic scene into a Harry Potter movie?!"

– Sa Rang via Facebook
