7 Messages Hidden Inside Some Of Your Favorite Films

Are you one of those people who enjoy texting while watching a movie? If so, then you are about to learn some new information that could potentially make your brain explode. Even if you are someone who pays close attention to every film you watch, you still might be surprised by a few of the hidden messages below.

Honestly, this list could have just been filled with Pixar’s shenanigans, but we tried to spread the love to all genres.  And if you have any favorite hidden messages that aren’t included in this list, feel free to share them in the comment section!




No. 7 – Is That Mickey Mouse? – “Aladdin”

When Taylor Swift thinks Tim McGraw, she thinks about her favorite song. The one she danced to all night long. But when T-Swift thinks about Disney? She probably thinks about Mickey just like the rest of us. Disney has been hiding vague Micky Mouse faces inside their films for years.

One of our favorites comes in Aladdin. Near the end of the film, after Jafar’s spell is broken, you can see Rajah quickly transform into Mickey Mouse before turning back into a full-sized tiger. This brief transition can only be caught by freeze-framing the DVD.



No. 6 – Don’t Blink! – “Fight Club”

We’re going to talk about Fight Club. This movie is FILLED with secret messages, but we decided to focus on just one to keep it simple. Prior to Tyler Durden’s official introduction, he’s revealed to us four times in brief flashes. You can click here to check out the video of all four flashes.

Director David Fincher claims the purpose of the sneaky frames was to show that “our hero is creating Tyler Durden in his own mind, so at this point he exists only on the periphery of the narrator’s consciousness.”



No. 5 – Morse Code In “King Kong”

We completely understand if you missed this one. If you did happen to catch this humorous message while watching the movie with your friends, we’re willing to bet you were the only one laughing. Just before reaching Skull Island, the captain of the SS Venture receives a Morse code message calling for the arrest of Jack Black’s character, Carl Denham.

But if you actually translated the code, you’d know the audible code has nothing to do with an arrest. It actually says, “Show me the monkey!



No. 4 -The “Star Wars” and “E.T.” Connection

This was certainly a strange Easter Egg in Episode I: The Phantom Menace. After Steven Spielberg included a character in a Yoda costume and several Star Wars references inside E.T., the 68-year-old director asked his friend, George Lucas, to include members of E.T.’s species inside the Phantom Menace film.

As you can see from the photo above, Lucas delivered in a big way.



No. 3 – “Lion King” Sex?

You probably remember hearing about this one. When Simba sinks down on a cliffside, a cloud of dust spreads across the screen, and as you can see in the photo above it looks like the dust cloud spells SEX. That’s obviously a strange word to place inside a movie made for kids. Why would the animators do that?

Well, according to the film’s animators, they didn’t do that! They claim the letters were intended to spell SFX — a secret thank you message to the special effects department.

Do you believe them? Watch the clip here.



No. 2 – That’s An Odd Name – “Anchorman”

Even silly comedies like Anchorman have hidden messages. Although, this message wasn’t really hard to find if you know Spanish. Christina Applegate’s character Veronica and her female coworkers are seen eating at the lovely restaurant you see above, Escupimos en su Alimento.

Translation? We spit in your food. Seriously. You can test it out for yourself, because we all know Google is always spot-on with these translations.



No. 1 – The Masters At Pixar

As we mentioned at the start of this post, Pixar films are filled with Easter eggs. We’re talking chocolate and tightly rolled dollar bills for days. We don’t have the space to cover all the eggs, so let’s just focus on the few that made us smile. In the photo above, you can see Buzz Lightyear just chilling on the floor inside a dentist’s office in Finding Nemo.

And in the photo below, you can see Nemo making a special appearance in Monsters, Inc.


And the last photo shows Rex (Toy Story) hidden inside WALL-E’s collection…


Watch: 10 Great Movie Lines That Were Reportedly 100% Unscripted


We all know a great movie starts with a great writer and a wonderful screenplay. And honestly, most of the time writers don’t get the credit they deserve. It’s all about the directors and the actors. But what some people fail to realize is that the actors and directors wouldn’t have anything to work on without the writers. It all starts with the writer.

However, there are times when an actor actually improves the script while filming. They are in full character mode, in the middle of an intense (or funny) scene, and something just hits them.

Check out the 10 classic unscripted movie lines below…


No. 10 – “Full Metal Jacket”

When someone mentions Full Metal Jacket, my mind instantly jumps to the brilliant insults being shouted by former real-life United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant, R. Lee Ermey. His performance in the film landed him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor, and it’s easy to see why.

Over half the insults you hear in the clip above were R. Lee Ermey originals. In fact, a few of his insults even confused writer/director, Stanley Kubrick. When Ermey said, “I’ll bet you’re the kind of guy that would f–k a person in the ass and not even have the goddam common courtesy to give him a reach-around.” Kubrick had to stop filming to ask Ermey what the hell a “reach-around” was.


No. 9 – “Midnight Cowboy”

This is a perfect example of an actor being completely committed to his character. According to Dustin Hoffman, the actor playing ‘Ratso’ Rizzo in the clip above, the New York City cab driver you see in the video wasn’t supposed to be there. He claims the cab driver really did almost hit him, which caused the memorable reaction, “I’m walkin’ here!”

We should note that the director of the film claims this moment was not unscripted. Who do you believe?


No. 8 – “Shaun Of The Dead”

From the 1:28 minute mark on, actor Nick Frost was completely improvising. The great “cockocidal maniac” line that made Simon Pegg start giggling actually has a hilarious story behind it.

The woman behind him in that scene was actually the director’s mother-in-law, which is probably why Simon reacted the way he did.


No. 7 – “Taxi Driver”

It doesn’t matter how old you are, there is a 95% chance you have either seen this classic scene or heard one of your relatives reciting it. Believe it or not, those famous words were not in the original script. According to director Martin Scorsese, the script simply instructed Robert De Niro to talk to himself while looking at the mirror.

It’s reported that De Niro’s performance was inspired by a comedy routine he saw while in New York City.


No. 6 – “Jaws”

Roy Scheider’s famous line, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” was ranked number 35 on AFI’s list of top 100 movie quotes. That’s pretty remarkable when you consider the line was made up on the spot.


No. 5 – “Good Will Hunting”

If you have watched Good Will Hunting, then you’ll know the film is filled with some great dialogue. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck took home the award for Best Original Screenplay. They deserve most of the credit for this wonderful film, but so does the late Robin Williams. He won Best Supporting Actor for his role, and we have to imagine this scene helped him win it.

The original script said nothing about his wife farting in her sleep. He was supposed to tell a story about how she would turn an alarm clock off in her sleep. That laughter you see from Damon is genuine.


 No. 4 – “The Warriors”

Who wants to play? Probably no one. David Patrick Kelly is best known for the improvised scene you see in the clip above. He played Luther in the 1979 film The Warriors, and he says his character was inspired by a bully he knew in downtown New York.

“I wanted to make Luther evil, so he was influenced by this really bad guy who I knew in downtown New York who would make fun of me and say, ‘Daaaaave. Daaaaave. Daaaaave.’ And it was the creepiest thing I ever heard.”


No. 3 – “The Empire Strikes Back”

We all remember this moment, but the truth is it almost didn’t make the final cut. George Lucas was worried fans would have a negative reaction to the, “I know” line.

Harrison Ford remembers how he won the battle…

“It was such a contest between George and I about whether that was appropriate or whether the audience would enjoy that line or not, to the point where he made me go to a test screening to sit next to him, to prove it was going to get a bad laugh. And it didn’t. It got a good laugh. So it stayed in.”


No. 2 – “They Live”

Yes, ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper really did ad-lib that famous bubblegum line, and even he admits he has no idea how or why it popped inside his head.

“I couldn’t tell you what it really means either. It was one of those – ‘Roddy, you’ve got bullets on you, you’ve got a shotgun, you’ve got sunglasses, you go into a bank, you’re not gonna rob it, say something … action!’ I’m all out of bubblegum. Lunch! That was it. No more than that. I know, it’s crazy.”

No. 1 – “Caddyshack”

Bill Murray reportedly only worked on the set for six days, but he obviously made the most out of those days. Every line he had in the film was unscripted, including the classic Cinderella Story you see above. He improvised the scene based on two lines of stage direction from director Harold Ramis. He was basically told to act like a child announcing his own imaginary round of golf.

The 11 Most Absurd Disney Channel Movie Plotlines


We see you hiding your face. Don’t be ashamed! We all secretly have that one Disney Channel Original Movie we watch every time we are sick, or when we need a pick-me-up after a long day at walk or school. For me, it’s Alley Cats Strike, which had the wonderful Kaley Cuoco in it as Elisa Bowers. She just signed a $90 million TV contract, so there was some serious talent in that movie. Just saying.

But Alley Cats Strike didn’t make the list down below. The plot line just wasn’t crazy enough. Check out Disney’s 11 most ridiculous plot lines in the list down below. Did your favorite make it?


11. – The Luck of the Irish

Do you see that photo above? That should tell you everything you need to know. Number 11 in that photo may look like a regular teenager to you, but he’s actually a half-leprechaun freak. Yeah, I called him a freak! You know why? Because he’s not real! And I am extremely thankful for that, because if he was real, I would never leave me my freaking house! Unless the house was being controlled by some strange computerized system that projects terrifying images of Katey Sagal, but we’ll get to that later.

So yeah, this dude is part leprechaun, and he finds out that his family’s lucky gold charm has been stolen by a group of naughty leprechauns. The brilliant film ends with a hilarious basketball game between the leprechauns. Can you guess who wins?



No. 10 – H-E Double Hockey Sticks

Why is Eric Matthews carrying the Devil’s pitchfork, and why is Jack Hunter smiling at the camera like he’s Wayne Gretzky? Was this some weird Boy Meets World spin-off? No. This wonderful creation was just another strange Disney Channel Movie. Will Friedle plays a devil-in-training sent to Earth to steal Matthew Lawrence’s soul. That’s pretty much all you need to know.



No. 9 – Pixel Perfect

This movie came out 10 years ago, and it still doesn’t make any sense. Some teenage geek borrows his father’s computerized holographic equipment to create a dancing hologram called Loretta to help out his best friend Samantha and her struggling band. The idea works initially, with everyone (except Sam) loving Loretta. But then things take a strange turn when Loretta escapes into the internet. Sam does her best to replace her on stage, but she ends up falling off the stage and slipping into a coma. Seriously.

And then a love triangle develops. The geek believes he is falling in love with Loretta, but then discovers he is really supposed to be with Samantha. It’s a better love story than The Notebook.



No. 8 – Halloweentown

Halloweentown might be one of Disney Channel’s most popular original films, but it’s also one of the strangest. The film follows Marnie  around on her 13th Halloween, and she’s not going to spend this Halloween begging for candy at every house in the neighborhood. Instead, she discovers that she, her mother and her grandmother are witches. Marnie follows her grandma and lands a free ride on the magical bus to Halloweentown. A town filled with skeletons, goblins and a secret demon named Kalabar.



No. 7 – The Ultimate Christmas Present

I will admit, this is one of my favorite Disney Channel movies, mostly because I can relate to the main characters. How can I relate to a 13-year-old girl? Well, we both wanted snow for Christmas and we both knew it was probably never going to happen. I grew up in Texas, and the characters in this movie lived in Los Angeles. On their way home from school one day, the two girls find a weather machine outside a shack in the woods. After pressing a few buttons, they discover they can use this machine to control the weather.

Of course, they use the machine to make it snow in their hometown. When the snowstorm starts to get out of control, a creepy weatherman is able to track the source of storm back to the girls and their new machine, which actually belongs to Santa Claus.



No. 6 – Smart House

I promised we would talk more about this film featuring Katey Sagal as a computerized house/overbearing mother. The madness starts when 14-year-old Ben Cooper gets tired of taking care of everything around the house. Ever since his mother died, he’s been helping his father take care of his little sister and the house. He has no time to be a normal teenager, so he enters a competition to win a Smart House. He and his family win the house and things work out wonderfully at first.

But then Ben screws everything up again when he makes PAT (the computerized Smart House), more motherly in an attempt to show his father they don’t need some new woman replacing their deceased mother. This new programming makes PAT become the mother from hell. PAT becomes overprotective and locks the family inside the house for their own safety. It’s a truly terrifying film, especially the scene where a bunch of white kids dance to The House Is Jumpin’. The nightmares still keep me up at night.



No. 5 – Twitches

People must love bizarre movies because just like Halloweentown, Twitches was extremely successful for Disney Channel. Over 7 million viewers watched the premiere back in 2005, which was a record for the network at the time. The film stars Tia and Tamera Mowry as twins (shocker!) who were separated at birth. They meet for the first on their 21st birthday and discover that they have magical powers. After having fun with a few spells, they learn more about their past, finding out that an evil force named the Darkness is attacking their homeland.



No. 4 – Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-Off

In a world full of witches, smart houses, holograms, and magical weather machines. A boy chasing his dream of becoming a famous chef sounds refreshingly normal. However, when you really get down to the meat and potatoes of this film, you will see how silly it truly is. Eddie is the star of his high school baseball team, and his father is the coach of the team, he’s also a professional asshole. After signing up for home economics at his school, Eddie discovers his love for cooking is stronger than his love for baseball. But how is he going to convince his douchebag father that  his dream of becoming the next Bobby Flay is worth it? Well, you will just have to watch the movie to find out.



No. 3 – Stepsister from Planet Weird

At least they warned you in the title with this movie. I remember watching this movie for the first time late at night several years ago. The next morning I honestly thought it was just some bizarre dream I had. I mean, using hairdryers to defeat the evil emperor? That’s just silly! But it actually happened in Stepsister from Planet Weird. I could type out this long summary for you, but I actually think this one line from IMDb says all you need to know…

“A teenager’s life is disrupted when her mother falls in love with an alien.”



No. 2 – Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century

Zoom zoom zoom….seriously? You are going to make me sing it alone? Don’t act like you forgot the words. The lyrics to Supernova Girl will forever be in our hearts. The film stars Kirsten Storms as Zenon Kar, and the always entertaining Raven Symoné as Nebula Wade. The two best friends are living the life in the year 2049 on an orbiting space station. After getting into some big trouble, Zenon’s parents punish her by sending her back down to Earth to live with her Aunt. While on Earth, Zenon learns about plans to destroy her true home back on the space station.

But since Zenon is known for making up stories, her parents don’t believe her when she tries to warn them, so she takes matters into her own hands by catching a ride back to the space station with her pop star idol Proto Zoa.



No. 1 – The Thirteenth Year

Going through puberty can be pretty scary, but 13-year-old Cody Griffin doesn’t want to hear you complaining about armpit hair. Why? Because this dude right here is growing fins! That’s right, soon after celebrating his 13th birthday, Cody discovers that he’s turning into a merman. He then finds his mermaid mother in the ocean and leaves his adoptive parents for the summer to help understand the changes happening to his body.

8 Movie Stars Who Hated Their Own Films


Most movie stars will promote and praise every movie they appear in, even if they know it’s actually a terrible movie. Anything to sell a few tickets, right?

But there are some honest celebrities out there. The actors you see down below weren’t afraid to admit they starred in some truly awful films.


No. 8 – David Cross: Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

David Cross, the actor who once suffered from ‘Never Nude’ syndrome on Arrested Development, is not afraid to speak his mind. After bashing, ‘Alvin and the Chimpmunks: Chipwrecked’ on Conan, telling the audience not to go see it. He then later admitted on his website that he only took the role because he had been out of work for six months and needed the money.


No. 7 – Charlize Theron: Reindeer Games

It wasn’t all fun and games for the cast of Reindeer Games. The 2000 film, directed by the late John Frankenheimer, featured stars like Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron and Gary Sinise. But all that talent couldn’t save this clunker. “Reindeer Games was not a good movie.” Charlize Theron admitted.



No. 6 – John Cusack: Better Off Dead

Steve Holland’s ‘Better Off Dead’ had John Cusack wishing he was dead. He disliked the film so much that he walked out of the screening and told Holland the film was the “worst thing” he had ever seen. He also said he would never trust him as a director again, which must have been awkward considering they were filming ‘One Crazy Summer’ at the time.



No. 5 – Mark Wahlberg: The Happening

During a press conference for his film, ‘The Fighter,’ Mark Wahlberg talked about a conversation he had with Amy Adams during lunch. He admitted, ‘The Happening’ was a terrible movie, saying, “F*** it. It is what it is. F***ing trees, man. The plants. F*** it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher.”



No. 4 – George Clooney: Batman & Robin

Joel Schumacher’s 1997 ‘Batman & Robin’ disaster almost killed the Batman franchise, and now almost 20 years later, George Clooney is still apologizing for his role in the film. He played Batman in the movie, which currently has a 3.6 rating on IMDb. “Sorry about the nipples on the suit. Freeze, freeze, I apologize for that.” He said during the ‘Tomorrowland’  Comic-Con panel.

No. 3 – Jim Carrey: Kick-Ass 2

It’s usually all about the laughs with Jim Carrey, but after the sickening Sandy Hook shooting, the comedian admitted he could no longer support such violence in films. ”I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.” He wrote on his Twitter account.

Knocked Up movie image Seth Rogen Katherine Heigl

No. 2 – Katherine Heigl: Knocked Up

Unlike most of the films on this list, ‘Knocked Up’ was a huge hit. Taking in a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It helped solidify the movie careers of Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl. However, Heigl didn’t like how the film portrayed women. “[It’s] a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys.” She said after the film was released.

No. 1 – Sylvester Stallone: Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

It’s clear all the stars on this list hated their movies, but Sylvester Stallone probably hated his the most. He claims ‘Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot’ could be used as a torture device. “If you ever want someone to confess to murder, just make him or her sit through that film. They will confess to anything after 15 minutes.” Stallone said.
