What are some of the best easter eggs?

I am wondering what are some of the most worthwhile easter eggs. Most easter eggs are pretty crappy but some are really cool.

A couple that I really like are the Mission impossible 2 skit with Ben stiller, LOTR with Jack Black, and the Final Fantasy Thriller video.

Are there any other really cool ones?

Since you saw the LOTR Jack Black one (not a JB fan, but that was good!) follow the same procedures (disc 1 scene selection, last scene, press down) on The Two Towers EE. Gollum never showed his really bad side in the films!

Being able to watch Memento in chronological order was pretty cool.

The third cut on Terminator 2 was pretty neat, and the ID4 easter eggs were cool.

I am kind of partial to the National Lampoon's Van Wilder Unrated eggs, as I submitted them to the DVDTalk egg database.

Although its certainly not a great movie, nor is it the best easter egg, but the one on the Old School of Will Ferrell drunk watching Girls Gone Wild always cracks me up.

I haven't heard them but The Simpsons Season 3 has hidden commentaries.

Blade 2 has a pretty hilarious one involving Del Toro and a dildo.

There is a hidden deleted scene on the DVD of Bedazzled where Elliot uses one of his wishes to become a rockstar. IMO it is worth the price alone.

Another good deleted scene is on the DVD of Ed Wood. It shows Martin Landau and Johnny Depp talking about remaking Dracula.

On Toy Story 2 there is an alternate scene of Jesse being "Abandoned" by her now adult owner.

Absolutely hilarious!

I thought watching Memento in chronological order was just a rumor? Is there really an easter egg of this? If so I'd like to know it.

I was going to say Cadbury, but then it didn't seem so funny.

This only works on disc 2 of the LE version:
- From the first menu, select the clock
- Answer "c" five times
- When you get to the part where you have to put the photos of the woman changing the flat tire in order, put them in REVERSE chronological order (3-4-1-2).

You'll know you did it right if you get the credits backwards and the opening scene forwards. Good luck.

The Jack Black egg is in the FOTR EE (look under the last chapter in the scene selections page)

I love the "Boy and His Power Loader" and "David Prior plays an Alien" eggs from the Alien Quadrilogy.

It's just Jack Black and Michelle Geller reinacting the Council at Rivendell scene.

The best DVD easter egg in my opinion is hidden on the 2-disc Memento DVD. I'm talking about the movie, the viewing of the film.

That's the easter egg, just getting the movie to play normally.

Seriously though, I do love being able to watch it in chronological order. Out of all of my DVDs, I've never really checked out too many of the easter eggs on them. I need to do just that some time I guess.

Holy crap! Watching Memento in chronological order? That's one heck of an easter egg. For those of you who've seen it, does it change the entire feel of the story? I would have to imagine that it does.
