The 'WTF' movie moments of 2000's thread! (any moment/scene/news that you said huh?)

I thought it might be fun to start up a series (depending on how this one goes) of "What the F***" moments in movies of the past 4 years. Getting the cue from VH1 of course.

Just listing all the great high points/catastrophes that may have turned out well, ones not so well: a box office tally that had you questioning the stars; a role that your favorite actor chose that had you leaping off tall buildings; a scene in a movie that had you puking on the popcorn encrusted floor...

Basically, any moments, scenes, things you saw/heard/read that came true/not true that you just said "What the F***" from this past short decade and we will try and keep it to the movie realm.
So while Janet's "wardrobe malfunction" might top many's list that was tv and not likely to be a contender in this thread.
Just all around things that made you do a double and went huh?

So here's to the things that make us go hmmmmm...

So far one recently, was seeing the box office take for "Fahrenheit 9/11". What an amazing take for a docu...WTF!

It happens in the first 5 minutes of the movie, so he's really not giving anything away.

The last 15-20 minutes of Hulk. When I watch it on DVD I usually just turn it off at that point and call it good.

I often think to myself, "He always puts 'thread' at the end of all of his thread titles, as if we didn't realize...it was a thread...WTF???"

The "Silencio" scene from Mulholland Drive. Not in a bad way at all, but utterly confusing nonetheless.
