14 Most Out Of Place Scenes In Movie History

1. Cool Beans - Hot Rod

Hot Rod Jorma Taccone Cool Beans

The Scene: After Rod (Andy Samberg) has a falling out with his half-brother Kevin (Jorma Taccone), Rod heads to his room to apologise.

After Kevin accepts the apology and asks, "So, cool beans?", the pair launch into a peculiar rap battle of sorts, parroting "cool beans" back at one another, clearly cut from countless alternate takes, as a beat creeps in to take things to the next level.

Why It's Out Of Place: Even for the surreal standard of a movie from The Lonely Island, this was utterly demented and came totally out of nowhere compared to the rest of the movie.

Amusingly, it was almost left out of the film until it was screened for test audiences, who generally scored it as one of their favourite scenes in the entire film.

It's a scene that works precisely because it's so sudden and unexpected, and let's be honest, it's pretty much the single moment everyone remembers from Hot Rod.

Which of these movie scenes are most jarringly out of place? Got any of your own picks? Shout them out in the comments!
