    Ryan Reynolds in X-men Origins: Wolverine. The Screenwriters' Strike caused some sections of the script to improvd, and the hilarious elevator scene with Deadpool going off on everybody, and his yelling, "Ok! People are dead now." The script only called for "Wade Wilson talks at this point, really fast." Ryan made up the whole speech on the spot. When fans found out, Ryan was the only choice to play Deadpool...his on-target dialogue is priceless!

    The "I know." line from Han Solo is my personal favorite of all time.It points out the legendary scene of desperation he and Leia are in,right near the end.

    It was Hicks, NOT Hudson!!!

    Just kidding (also, it follows on from the gag in the movie where Lt. Gorman is confused between Hicks and Hudson)...

    you keep leaving out when Bruce Willis added 2 words on a whim while shooting and created a catchphrase that defined a series, the line was only supposed to be "Yippy ki yay" (if you don't know the full line I feel sorry for you)

    That sneeze was nit improvised, at best it is not a real sneeze. People usually make a face before sneezing, which he clearly didn't.

    There should have been a spot for "I didn't know you could read" from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Tom Felton was 13 when he made that line on the spot when he forgot his line

    The only best improvise scene In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is when Pintel and Ragetii discussing how to pronounce Kraken. They even featured director's comment the scene in behind the scene bonus track.

    Most great lines/scenes in movies are improvised.My favorite will probably always be Indiana Jones pulling out his gun during a sword fight when he had the flu while shooting the scene.

      Unfortunately there's no spoken line there so it can't be in the video of improvised lines.

    Oh, the "Game Over,Man" was improvised? Damn it! And I kind of thought Bill Paxton was a little out of his depth in Aliens 2.
