Five hilarious moments censored in explicit movie scenes

Why the hell would anyone think it was appropriate to broadcast scarface on daytime television with some censored tweaks is beyond me, but that’s the hilarious reality we live in. Due to the fact that swearing is a vulgarity no one can handle on something as mainstream as daytime television, censors object to layering foul language with an appropriate substitute, and the results are often a barrel of laughter.

This ridiculous practice created a niche comic sensation. If you come across any of these hilarious moments on a live broadcast, then you’ve found the holy grail of daytime irreverence. Quite often, these moments completely alter the plot of the film or seem completely irrelevant to the scene. In some ways, you often suspect the censors are in on it.

Below, we’ve compiled some of the most laughable overdubbing moments in TV history. From Samuel L. Jackson’s simian skid to Walter Sobchak inexplicably raging over a skiing accident, these absurd moments make no sense in the most beautiful way. No one said overdubbing was easy, but these moments make you wonder if it would have been better to bleep it.

Five censored moments in explicit movie scenes:

“Monkey Fighting Snakes” – Snakes on a Plane

In a moment of sheer exasperation, as Samuel L. Jackson tries to harangue a plane beset by crawling bastards in some sort of order, he shouts, “Enough is enough!” I got it with those fucking snakes, on that fucking plane!” His anger is understandable. Less understandable, however, is his outburst on the TV montage where he exclaims, “Enough is enough! I had it with those snake fighting monkeys on that plane Monday through Friday.

Nowhere in the script are primates mentioned, and the notion of a plane staying in the air for an entire working week is more mind-blowing than the actual plot. This overdubbing opus is considered the finest ever written among the fanatical community of comedy censors. It is, in short, pure poetry.

“Find a stranger in the Alps” – The Big Lebowski

This is one of the greatest movies of all time created – a masterpiece where every line and every detail is considered with intention. It’s all the more unexpected that Walter Sobchak explodes one and starts to smash a sports car while shouting: “That’s what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps.

The actual line is, of course, “That’s what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass.” However, the daytime version subverts the idea of ​​being fooled into something far more surreal. Why would an Alpine stranger be so aggressive? Is this some sort of censorship metaphor for the post-season downfall of a vengeful slalom master?

“Eat pineapple? –Scarface

As mentioned before, the only reason I can think of for scarface even being shown on daytime television is a kind of contact flip to keep a censorship business afloat. Tony Montana’s story is one of the most profane and violent in the history of mainstream cinema, it’s far from ideal to follow a The Murder She Wrote replay.

To be fair to this overdub, “How did you get the scar? Eating pussy? is hardly dialogue gold, and in its own way, “Eating pineapple?” makes a bit of sense, provided that he tries to get rid of it by cutting off the spiky top, but it feels more like a general inquiry than an insult.The mind keeps getting confused.

“His antics were priceless” – The Departed

Kids love nothing more than a Martin Scorsese movie so I wish they couldn’t believe their luck when The dead met a circus-themed overdub. In the daytime TV version of this organized crime flick, the fearsome Jack Nicholson runs a kind of clown caper racket in cahoots with Coco rather than the Yakuza.

With more swear words per minute than the pinnacle of television art, Tourettes: I swear I can’t help itit seems out of place to pick a show that’s only meant to point fingers at violence and make it PG.

“I HATE EVERYONE” – Die Hard with a Vengeance

While in most cases changing f—king in flight isn’t going to alter the entire plot, there are some controversies that just can’t be sidestepped. The amendment from “Yippie-ki yay, mother f—ker” to “Yippe-ki yay, Mr Falcon” might have gone unnoticed in Die Hard with a Vengeance, one tweak made the whole thing look ridiculous.

The original plot sees a villain pushing John McClane through the heart of Harlem sporting a sandwich board – which he can’t pull off – with a racial slur etched on it. Naturally, this causes uproar and retaliation in the predominantly black neighborhood. However, a sign that read “I HATE EVERYONE” would surely never create more ruckus than a few suspicious looks.
