8 Movie Scenes You Didn't See (Thanks To Test Audiences)

Crash test dummies or crash test geniuses? You decide.


There's some really weird versions of movies out there that have never made it to the public eye. Whether it's three versions of Blade Runner doing the rounds to the chagrin of purist nerds the world over, or that Pretty Woman script that saw Julia Roberts as a drug addled mess who got dumped at the end, or even, perhaps most shockingly of all, a version of Suicide Squad that people actually liked - it's almost unbelievable, right?

More often than not, these changes are made thanks to the help of a handy test audience, a group of people who sift through the first iterations of films and wield the power to make or break them with their reactions. Whilst they usually pick all the horrible scenes out like a bunch of name-brand coconut chocolates out of a selection box, every now and then something great gets unfairly cut - making for a whole variety of crazy moments that we never get to see in cinemas.

Collecting together some of the most famous films that got the test audience treatment then, these are the scenes that got watchers so riled up they had to be taken out entirely. Are they really that bad? Take a look for yourself...
