15 Most Confusing Movie Moments Nobody Understands

15. "Pancakes!" - Cabin Fever

Lionsgate

The Scene: When Bert (James DeBello) tries to seek help for his virus-afflicted friends at a local store, the owner's young son Dennis (Matthew Helms) takes one look at Bert and starts screaming, "Pancakes!", before performing a demonstration of his martial arts skills and biting Bert in the hand.

What It Probably Means: Nothing, really, considering that writer-director Eli Roth added it in at the last minute after he saw Helms practising tae kwon do during a break in filming. It just adds a little character to the film, and even though it's easily the most memorable scene in the entire movie, it's not supposed to make much sense beyond "this kid is crazy".
