We’ve all heard of the phrase “Stick to the script”. More so when it comes to executing scenes of a movie. There’s so many people working on it to make sure of perfection all the way from the written scripts to final dialog delivery. More often than not, actors do stick with the script, but if we look into the history of cinema, some of the most glorious moments have been created off the dome and on the spot. Little deviations have proved to be magical after the takes.
Improvisation can either be way in which the scenes are enacted, reactions of actors to a particular moment, or an impromptu speech delivered by the actor. Some of these improvisations have turned the movies into cult-classics and the scenes the most enacted ones.
Coming to the knowledge that those clap-worthy moments were actually not in the original script, our admiration for these great actors reach a new level of high. But not all are able to leave such magical touches in their works. It takes a huge deal of dedication, knowing the character inside-out. Here we pick down the list of top 10 improvised movie scenes.

The rest, they say, is history.
