    Actually I’ll switch Top Gun with Tropic Thunder. Even through Cruise is only in it for like 5 mins it was the best 5 mins ever.

    To fully appreciate that scene you need to see the original that it's based on, which IIRC is Bride of Frankenstein. (1935)

    Awesome.

    The story of how they got to that whole gag is pretty funny as well.

    They did not intend on making him “special”, but when his puppet was done, they hated it, because it made him look “special”. It was too late in production to have it remade, so they changed the character to the classic that it became.
