Great screenplays can always be improved on by inspired actors – so here’s a list of famous movie lines that weren’t in the original script.

10. Midnight Cowboy

An actual NYC cab driver blundered onto the set, and Dustin Hoffman managed to respond with an in-character “I’m walkin’ here!”


9. Good Will Hunting

The “farting wife” story even cracked up the camera man, as you can tell by the slight shaking in this clip.


8. Full Metal Jacket

About half of R. Lee Ermey’s drill sergeant insults were barbs he wrote himself, as a former real-life Marine Drill Instructor.

Watching hapless victims running for their lives might not sound romantic, but a scary movie is perfect for a cozy night on the couch with someone special. (Unless you’re a character in a horror movie, as any romantic moment eventually turns into murderous mayhem.) Before you catch My Bloody Valentine this Valentine’s Day on IFC, check out some horror movies that will both warm your heart and chill your bones.

1. Let The Right One In

A surprisingly touching tale of a bullied child and his vampire crush, the acclaimed 2008 Swedish horror film perfectly captures the feelings of being in the throes of naive first live. Pair it with the solid 2010 American remake, and be sure to have some tissues on hand to go with the blood red wine and dark chocolates.


2. Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 take on Bram Stoker’s classic tale upped the lavish romanticism with an ageless, yet alluring, Dracula driven by a centuries spanning love. For better or worse, we wouldn’t have Twilight without this sumptuous gothic romance.


3. The Fly

The Fly

One of the greatest body horror movies of all time centers on the most doomed relationship you’ve ever seen. If you find Jeff Goldblum as attractive as Geena Davis does, well, we advise you to make the most of it early on before Cronenberg’s masterpiece mutilates him.


4. Bride of Chucky

Why can’t movie monsters find love? Because it’s literally horrifying. Luckily that’s the point in Bride of Chucky, where the murderous puppet finds a soulmate who shares his penchant for sharp objects. A high point in the series that spoofed its own silliness while still scaring the hell out of us.


5. Bride of Frankenstein

Of course, there wouldn’t be a Bride of Chucky without the original movie monster romance. James Whale’s horror classic both introduced a new level of pathos to the Frankenstein story and gave us a lady monster for the ages.


6. Hellraiser

Lemarchand’s box first broke the barriers between life and death as part of a (deeply unromantic) love story. An unfaithful wife seduces and murders men to resurrect her dead lover, and when her daughter finds out things get gorily complicated.


7. A Chinese Ghost Story

A night in a haunted temple has a man falling in love with a beautiful ghost in this horror comedy from director Ching Siu-tung. Oh, and he has to save her spirit from an evil tree demon. We haven’t mentioned the swordsman or the gymnastic martial arts yet, but you’ll definitely enjoy them too.


8. Candyman

The creepy Candyman is looking for love, which is a hard sell when you’ve got a hook for a hand and are usually covered in bees. Oh, and you’re a revenge-fuelled murderous specter. Helen Lyle must deal with his romantic intentions as well as an unfaithful boyfriend, and it really doesn’t go well for anyone. You’d think it’d be nice to have someone who always comes when you call…


9. Warm Bodies

An unlikely love story between the living and the dead, Warm Bodies follows “R” as he grunts and groans his affection for the chief zombie-hunter’s daughter. No other story has ever so completely shown the healing power of love.


10. My Bloody Valentine

My Bloody Valentine stars the Grinch of the holiday, the murderous miner who has sworn that a small town should never again host a dance on that day. Of course a gang of sexy teens decide to ignore him. And of course he comes back, with wonderfully horrific results.

One of the highest-paid actors in the world, it seems like the tabloids have exposed just about every aspect of Tom Cruise’s life. But there are still some little bits that might be new to you. Dig these ten things you didn’t know about Tom Cruise.

10. He Has a Holiday in Japan

Tom Cruise has visited Japan more than almost any Hollywood star, and they reciprocated by designating October 10th “Tom Cruise Day.”


9. Aladdin Was Modeled After Him

Originally, Disney artists based the face of Aladdin on Michael J. Fox, but producers decided Cruise was a more female-appealing model so he was redesigned.


8. He Feuded with His First Co-Star

Cruise’s movie debut was in 1981’s Endless Love opposite Brooke Shields. The pair would publicly argue more than two decades later about Scientology and psychiatric drugs.

10 Reasons Why Jim Carrey Ruled the ’90s

While today’s Jim Carrey has settled into an interesting support player in films like Kick-Ass 2 and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, it’s nice to look back and remember what a powerhouse he was in his ’90s heyday. Here are just ten of his best contributions.

10. Ace Ventura Is Awesome

People forget what a weirdly awesome character Carrey created with Ace Ventura. Long before Borat, this was the impression every class clown had in their repertoire.


9. Fire Marshall Bill

Before taking the movie world by storm with Ace Ventura, Carrey shared his manic brilliance with TV audiences on In Living Color.


8. He Introduced a New Generation to Tony Clifton

Not just anyone could play Andy Kaufman because the role also requires a perfect impression of his rude alter ego, Tony Clifton.
