Not a bad list. Hard to argue with Lee Ermey's add lib. One of the great ones.

Indeed.

25 is too small a number. 50 to 100 might scratch the surface.


While we're at it "He's A Great Man" from Dennis Hopper might rank just as high

in the same film. It's well know that Coppola just let him go off the entire time

I didn't post it as the definitive unscripted list but just to start a conversation and maybe get some additional favorite scenes from the forum members.

Was that "unscripted" which I take to mean ad libbed? I know Ford was terribly sick and couldn't do a sword fight so they changed the script but I don't think it was ad libbed.

A rather emotional scene in SIlver Linings Playbook, between Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, 100% unscripted and improvised by De Niro. I saw the film (again) very recently so it's an easy one

Yes I think it was. Ford was indeed too sick and he was supposed to fight the guy, but then he just shot him in this now classic scene. I don't think they changed the script, they just figured it was much funnier that way.

I read it as Ford was sick and needed to hit the bathroom. While he was standing there, somone from off camera yelled "Just shoot him!" You can see a little confused look on his face when pulls out the gun.


I would add "I'll have what she's having" from when Harry Met Sally.
