10 Totally Unnecessary Movie Scenes That Served Zero Purpose

The Matrix Have you ever stared directly at a scene in a motion picture, only to find yourself thinking: "What in God's name was that about?" I'm not talking about those parts in movies where the filmmakers purposely throw in a zany dance sequence or a wacky interlude because - look! - we want you to know how random and crazy we're being, but moments where bizarre, unrelated things happen and there's no explanation is ever offered up until you get home to find that other, like-minded people with working brains have picked up on the insanity and are talking about it on the internet. You know, all those scenes that detract from the story for no identifiable reason, forcing you to comprehend everything that you ever thought you knew about "logic" and "the movie business." Here's 10 of that nature: scenes in various movies that just seem to occur out of nowhere, adding absolutely nothing to the product as a whole, almost as if the writers were forced at gunpoint to come up with the most inappropriate or ill-fitting happenings imaginable. How the heck did these pointless scenes make it into the final cut, Hollywood? You have some serious explaining to do.
