Ryan Reynolds’ recent box-office flop R.I.P.D. was definitely not that funny, and it might be because all the good gags apparently wound up on the blooper reel.
I mean, how do you mess this up? The hilariously awesome Jeff Bridges teams up with Reynolds as ghost cops in a comedy-action caper to save the world. It has all the components of a supernatural version of Men in Black, just none of the fun.
But, though the film fell as flat as a pancake, the blooper reel actually is pretty great. The one thing to take away? Jeff Bridges cannot flip a police badge to save his life. Seriously, at all. Also, those green-screen car chases are more entertaining without the effects. Who’d have guessed?
Check out the blooper reel above, plus two alternate opening scenes (with incomplete FX work) that didn’t make the cut below:
