Wild Rides: Top Three Most Outlandish Movie Scenes We Love

Great movies always make us feel something. Be it tears, laughter, wonder, or joy, the most memorable scenes must elicit some sort of emotional reaction. So, what about the scenes that make us scratch our heads? Well, we love them, too. 

Read on to discover our top picks for the most outlandish movie scenes out there and consider watching them to get a healthy dose of wild rides and unreality along with your next movie night.

Casino Royale: Final Poker Scene Leaves Some Reality to be Desired

There’s no doubt that Casino Royale is among the best 007 films of all time. This movie has action, intrigue, beautiful women, and a suave hero who just so happens to be an absolute fox at the poker table. That’s a good thing, as it all comes down to the cards during Bond’s final showdown with criminal mastermind banker Le Chiffre. The movie wraps up with their high-stakes game of Texas Hold ‘em, featuring a total of four players sitting around a pot of over $100 million. 

So, what exactly makes this scene so outlandish? If you want to appreciate it to the fullest, consider brushing up on card rankings and poker hands before you start watching. That way, you’ll be able to calculate the odds of all four card combinations and realize just how unlikely that particular set of hands would be. 

Each player holds a hand of extremely high value. The two extra millionaires hold a flush and a full house, while Le Chiffre holds a higher full house—but Bond’s straight flush manages to beat them all out in the end. The likelihood of this occurring in real life is so minuscule it makes the scene almost laughable. While we adore Casino Royale, this particular poker game misses the mark of realism by several miles.  

Fast & Furious 6: No One Needs Physics with their Highway Chase

No list of the most outlandish movie scenes would be complete without mentioning Fast and Furious. While many moments in this franchise deliver jaw-dropping ridiculousness, none defies physics more than the final chase scene in Fast & Furious 6

Here we see our colorful cast of characters flying down the highway at a few million miles an hour, with Luke Evans operating an actual military tank to add a bit of extra oomph to the scene. The objective of the chase is pretty unimportant, and you’ll probably forget what it is as you watch the action play out.

The pièce de résistance is when Vin Diesel leaps out the window of the car he is currently driving to catch Michelle Rodriguez as she is thrown from the said tank, catching her in midair and propelling her to safety with what we can only assume is the momentum of his sheer bravado. Somehow, nobody dies, even when the duo land on the windshield of another car traveling at a few million miles an hour. 

The Room: Things Get Weird on the Roof with Spectacularly Bad Acting

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, chances are you’ve seen Tommy Wiseau’s broken brainchild, The Room. Because this cringe-fest of a film features so many outlandish scenes, it’s truly difficult to just pick one—but since we have to choose, we’ll go with the roof scene. While the preposterous nature of this scene is a bit more subtle, it’s because of bad writing and even worse acting rather than an unrealistic plotline. 

Here, Wiseau and Sestero sit on a balmy San Francisco rooftop made entirely of false angles, scrambled green-screens, and misplaced hope. Sestero is trying to subtly convey to Wiseau that his girlfriend is cheating on him, using the classic technique of telling a roundabout story of a different girl cheating on a different man. 

Anyone who has seen this movie knows just how ridiculous the entire scene is. As Wiseau’s personality changes at the drop of a hat, he displays a complete lack of any understanding of human emotions. It’s hilarious to watch, and it may be the exact scene that caused this movie to become a cult classic in the first place. 

Ready to get watching? While this list is by no means exhaustive, it is a great start to any tongue-in-cheek movie marathon. Now that you’ve got a handle on some of the most outlandish movie scenes ever recorded, you can break out the popcorn and settle in for a night of smirking at your screen.
