The British crime comedy, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, follows a cunning card player, portrayed by Nick Moran, as he strives to pay off a debt to a menacing criminal kingpin after losing big in a game of Brag. In an unscripted moment, Stephen Marcus's character, Nick "the Greek," breaks a coffee table with a juice glass. The moment is straight up insane and the genuine surprise on Marcus's face adds a touch of authenticity to the scene that serves to make the whole film feel a little more real.

The 'Burbs - Gurney Throw

The 'Burbs, a pitch-black satire of modern suburban ennui and dread, boasts a star-studded cast and has secured its place as a classic comedy-thriller. After a climactic house fire, Ray Peterson (played by Tom Hanks) erupts into a frantic monologue, confessing the neighbors' misjudgment of the Klopeks, and insinuating that he and his neighbors are the true "lunatics" in the neighborhood. As Peterson bellows, "Take me to the hospital," he collapses onto an ambulance gurney. When the gurney fails to budge, he writhes about, jumps up, and hoists the entire gurney into the back of the ambulance, landing on top of it in a fit of laughter. Hanks ad-libbed the gurney toss, a scene not originally included in the script, during filming. The 'Burbs expertly blends suburban monotony with mounting tension, as the peculiar behavior of the Klopeks drives Peterson and his neighbors to the brink of hysteria.
