* In the 2002 [[TheCaper caper]] movie ''Stark Raving Mad'', when [[SeannWilliamScott Ben]] is knocking out [[spoiler:the nightclub owner]] with a convenient bottle, they had several takes where the SoftGlass bottle didn't actually break -- but the actors were so dedicated to selling every take that they just had Ben shatter the bottle and knock the guy out with the ''second'' blow.

** During "Pure Imagination," the only direction the cast got was that they could not stand in front of Creator/GeneWilder. As they're descending the stairs into the Chocolate Room, Julie Dawn Cole and Denise Nickerson decided to throw in some shoving and clawing at each other. Also, at one point, Paris Themmen steps in front of Wilder but does not step back with him; he improvised that.

** During filming of ''Film/TheBirdcage'', Williams and Nathan Lane were so thoroughly into ad-libbing and bouncing off one another that they were forced to promise they'd do one take exactly as scripted before they were allowed, in subsequent takes, to say whatever they wanted. Also, the scene where Robin Williams trips carrying the pot of soup was not supposed to happen, but how hilariously appropriate it was to the mood made it into the film. If you pay enough attention, Creator/HankAzaria nearly loses it at Robin falling.

If you pay enough attention, Creator/HankAzaria nearly loses it at Robin falling. Finally, Williams' character Armand is asked if a character in an in-universe production should just stand still. Armand goes into an elaborate dance routine complete with shouting, then tells the actor "but keep it all inside." The entire thing was improvised by Williams.

*** Similarly, Ledger ever so slightly modified the line where Joker disparages Lau's plan to run to Hong Kong. The script said "As for ''Lau's'' so-called plan", which was changed to "As for '''the television's''' so-called plan". The tiny change adds a little humour to the line and dehumanises Lau, which fits well with Joker's overall attitude towards people.

** Jim asks Michelle, aka AlysonHannigan, to the prom. After she talks about [[DoubleEntendre using her flute to make her sing]] and wanting to have sex with Jim, she climbs on top of him and says, "What's my name? Say my name bitch!" This was yet another "tried it differently on the last take" that they threw in. (You can see all the takes on the DVD special features.)

* A lot of dialogue in ''Film/DogDayAfternoon'' including AlPacino yelling "Attica! Attica!" and John Cazale's response when Pacino asks him what country he wants to go after the robbery: "Wyoming."

* In ''Literature/RequiemForADream'', the shot of Ellen Burstyn delivering a [[TearJerker tearjerking]] monologue of why her character wants so badly to lose weight and be on television is slightly askew. When director Darren Aronofsky confronted his cinematographer who was operating the camera, he admitted he had let the camera slip because his crying had actually fogged up the lens. Aronofsky left this shot in the film.
* ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead'' has one scene toward the end where [[spoiler:Frank immolates himself in the oven]]. This is because James Karen didn't want to shoot his final scene in the cold rain and instead suggested that Frank [[spoiler:commit suicide]] because he's a nice guy and didn't want to hurt anybody.

** The original script had Rocky realizing that he was going to lose after going to the arena the night and being intimidated by the size of venue and realizing he doesn't belong. However, the art department drew Rocky's trunks the wrong color, and there wasn't time to get it redone. Instead producers rewrote the scene so that Rocky has his sad epiphany after complaining about the poster, only for the promoter to blow him off. Similarly, the too-large robe he wears pre-fight is also discussed in-universe, to cover for yet another mistake by the prop department.

* According to multiple interviews by GregoryPeck, the famous scene in ''Film/RomanHoliday'' in which he pretended to have his hand bitten off by the Mouth of Truth was ad-libbed by him, with only the director being aware of it in advance. Creator/AudreyHepburn[='=]s scream and her relief laughter were genuine reactions. According to Peck, he borrowed the joke from Red Skelton.

* Jerry O'Connell beatboxing in ''Film/KangarooJack.'' According to the DVD commentary, Bruckheimer heard O'Connell and Anderson beatboxing on set and asked O'Connell if he could do that "spit-rap thing" in the movie. Extra funny because people assume it isn't really O'Connell doing it in the movie since both the actor and character are pretty white.
