Moments in movies where you say "What the heck?"

Name some moments in movies where there is no reasonable explanation for what's going on. Or maybe you think the director must have called in sick for that day's shooting.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Dolly and Burt sit down and have a theological discussion.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Pretty much everything in I Know Who Killed Me. If you're a conoisseur of bad movies, though, I highly recommend it.

Every single minute of "Field of Dreams", most especially the moment where Kevin Costner hears "If you build it, he will come!" and instantly knew that it meant to build a baseball field and his father would come play in it.

Oh wait, I prefer that he hears "Ease his pain" and knew to kidnap James Earl Jones because making him watch segregated baseball teams play ball would somehow make him feel better.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

The last part of I'm Not There with Richard Gere. Although that made me go "What the f**k?!"

****SPOILERS****

(...for those who care about little-known films...)

The one I remember the most in the past decade was for "The Shipping News." It was a completely brilliant movie until somebody died toward the end (as I recall?) and then came back to life again suddenly. The entire movie/story fell right into the toilet after that. The tone changed. Everything changed. All that had come before was trivialized and pointless. And I remember saying out loud at the screen "WTF!" when it happened. It was embarrassing, but I meant it.


EDIT: And Joe, I couldn't agree with you less about "Field of Dreams." Oh, well...

The "Mr Kite" scene of "Across the Universe" and the end scene of "Children of Men"
"Applause begets applause in the theatre, as laughter begets laughter and tears beget tears." CLAYTON HAMILTON, "Theory of the Theatre" "I think theater ought to be theatrical ... you know, shuffling the pack in different ways so that it's -- there's always some kind of ambush involved in the experience. You're being ambushed by an unexpected word, or by an elephant falling out of the cupboard, whatever it is." TOM STOPPARD
