    19 Movie Scenes That Should've Been Deleted From The Film Entirely

    Caution: These chosen movie moments may bring back bad memories.

    We all love a great movie, right? In fact, maybe we are all partial to enjoying a really bad movie, too (it happens to the best of us).

    I recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to share what movie scene felt so out of place that they should have been filed in the deleted scenes section instead.

    And, I've got to tell you, there's some pretty interesting and quite random scenes that have just rubbed people the wrong way...

    1. The "goofy space alien cyber sex thing" in Avatar:

    "A whole lot of families went into the first Avatar movie expecting a blockbuster James Cameron epic, and were hit with that goofy space alien cyber sex thing. The rest of the movie was nice, tho, but THAT scene was really unnecessary and uncomfortable."


    2. Transformers: Age of Extinction taking on the Romeo and Juliet law:

    "I haven't seen the movie, but the first thing that comes to mind is the 'Romeo and Juliet law' scene in Transformers: Age of Extinction."


    3. The Grand High Witch beckoning Bruno in Witches:

    "In the original Witches (1990), when Bruno walks into the trap, the Grand High Witch starts to beckon him over, and it looks like she’s orgasming. … To this day, I’ve never understood it, and it made the tone so unnecessarily creepy. You can find it on YouTube, and if you see it…please explain!!!"


    4. Ginny tying Harry's shoes in Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince:

    "That moment where Ginny ties Harry's shoe in Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince. It was so out of character and didn't add anything. She grew up with the twins; theres a bigger chance she would've tied his shoes together and laugh when he falls."


    "Book Ginny would have tied his shoes together and laughed when he fell. Then helped him up, of course. They completely ruined her in the movies."


    5. This outburst in Kingsman: The Secret Service:

    "The scene at the end of Kingsman: The Secret Service, where the princess 'rewards' the main character with anal sex. Very near ruins the entire film."


    6. Alice Eve's undressing in Star Trek Into Darkness:

    "The first one that comes to mind is in Star Trek Into Darkness when Alice Eve's character decides she needs to change right then and there and makes Kirk turn around instead of leave for a minute. Of course, he looks back at her right when she's in her underwear. The scene serves absolutely no purpose in the plot, but it lives rent free in my head! Grrrr."


    7. The "Cheer Up, Charlie" scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory:

    "The 'Cheer Up, Charlie' scene from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. It was a completely forgettable song that just slowed down the film."


    "I always fast-forwarded that part! Bloody awful!"


    "I hated that song my whole life. Even when I was little, I would fast-forward this stupid song."


    8. The breaking out into song in The Sweetest Thing:

    "I don’t know if I’d delete it because it was so bad that it was good, but the scene in The Sweetest Thing, when they break out in song and sing 'you’re too big to fit in here' at the restaurant. It was the biggest wtf moment in a movie. How someone decided it was necessary to include it in the movie I will never understand."


    9. This dancing scene in The Princess and the Frog:

    "The dancing in "Friends on the Other Side" in The Princess and the Frog. It was so obviously rotoscoped from Michael Jackson that it ruined that scene for me. All I could see was Jackson dancing, and it didn't come across as spooky but as jarring."


    10. This Legally Blonde moment:

    "I love Legally Blonde, but I hate when Elle calls Vivian a frigid bitch. Mostly the frigid part. It just doesn’t seem very Elle. She totally should be calling Vivian out but 'stuck up bitch' or even 'East Coast bitch' would seem more her and fit with the storyline better."


    11. And the Bend and Snap scene:

    "The bend and snap in Legally Blonde was so unnecessary and cringe. I always skip that part." 


    12. Natasha and Bruce talking about kids in Avengers: Age of Ultron:

    "The scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron where Natasha and Banner are talking about the fact that she can't have kids...ugh."


    "I thought it was a little weird storyline for Nat, but I didn’t hate it. It added to the Red Room’s cruelty. What I HATED was in Age of Ultron her heavily implying that her not being able to have children made her a monster. Which is super offensive to people who struggle with fertility. You’re not less of a person or a monster if you can’t have children. Not at all!"


    13. Jack Nicholson and his crazy eyes in The Departed:

    "Jack Nicholson is at the opera, and they leave, and he throws a handful of coke on the bed and says don't come up till your numb, and this look in his eyes is crazy. I never understood why they put that in there, although I thought I had read that he would only do the movie if he has a sex scene..."


    14. Peter Parker's Spider-Man dance was never NOT going to be mentioned:

    "Peter Parker's Spider-Man dance.🕺"


    "A scar on my memory forever."


    15. The singing crab in Moana:

    "I love Moana. Great movie. Made me laugh. Made me cry. But that crab scene made me cringe. Still not quite sure what was going on there."


    "I honestly think it was a 'Hey Guys! We got Jemaine Clement! See?!? Isn’t that cool?! Anyway back to the story' moment."


    16. Wanda's kids singing about ice cream in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:

    "Dr. Strange 2 when Wanda's kids sang that cringe song about ice cream."


    17. When Scream 2 brought in this song:

    "The scene in Scream 2 where Sidney's boyfriend gets up on the table and sings the same song they sing in Top Gun. This is meant to be a horror movie not a rom-com!"


    18. The post-wedding kiss in The Godfather:

    "Maybe an unpopular opinion, BUT, the scene after Michael and Apollonia's wedding in The Godfather — the one where they make out and you see her boobs. It felt so awkward and forced for two characters that I feel had a lot of chemistry (even just by sharing a glance). The Godfather is a GREAT movie, and honestly, the scene is terrible, but it takes me out of the romanticism and escapism of Michael's time in Italy."


    19. The dancing and bonding montages in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2:

    "What comes to mind first for me is the scene in the last Harry Potter film where the golden trio takes a break from the plot for a dancing/bonding montage with some weird royalty-free song playing. Honestly, like, wtf? There was never a clip like this in any of the other films, and they saved this garbage dump for the last one?"
