Looking forward to your yummy chocolate eggs this Easter Holidays? Well, munch down on them while catching up on some of cinema's greatest eggs-apades. (I'm so sorry for that…)
5. GROSSE POINTE BLANK (1997)
The egg itself isn’t much of a feature in the movie, but it does lead to one of the funniest back-and-forth dialogue scenes…
Martin: "Whole-grain pancakes and an egg-white omelette, please."
Melanie: "What would you like in your omelette?"
Martin: "Nothing in the omelette. Nothing at all."
Melanie: "Well, that's not technically an omelette."
Martin: "Well, I don't want to get into a semantic argument over it. I just want the protein."
4. AIRPLANE (1980)
There are no words for this one:
3. COOL HAND LUKE (1967)
Paul Newman is a legend by all accounts, but this takes some beating. While in prison he makes a random bet that he can eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour. But Paul Newman being Paul Newman, he wouldn't just let the magic of editing and cinema allow us to believe he ate them. Oh no, Newman actually ate all 50 eggs in an hour. What a guy!
2. GHOSTBUSTERS (1984)
Dana (Sigourney Weaver) comes from after grocery shopping, and puts down the bags on her kitchen table. While putting some of the other stuff away, the eggs container pops open, and the eggs start popping out of their shells, before beginning to cook right there on the counter top. That’s before she sees the light and hears the sounds coming from her fridge. It's Zool, Dana! Leg it!
1. ALIEN (1979)
Sigourney Weaver stars in another movie featuring evil eggs, this time laid by an alien which pop open to hurl a facehugger on to John Hurt's face. That lays another egg down his throat, which then gives way to a baby alien that pops out of his chest, and then goes on to kill most of everyone else on the spaceship. So, yeah, enjoy that Easter Egg…
