Every now and again you come across a line in TV or film that should have been awesome. You can tell it was written as a comic / tragic / dramatic / whatever moment, but somehow turned out shit. Perhaps the actor couldn’t pull it off; perhaps the director lost it along the way; it gets left gasping on the sidelines.
My contribution to the lines that got left behind?
“I hate not being the bad guys.”
See? You could hang half a trailer off that – but in the final movie, it’s barely audible – and the action doesn’t pause to give it room to breathe. What a waste.
Got any of your own?
