Like school, work, and pretty much every relationship you're ever going to have, movies can be pretty goddamn confusing. And while you may chalk up these baffling moments to lazy filmmaking or some kind of gas leak in the theater, sometimes they have actual explanations -- and all you have to do is sift through multiple screenplay drafts, dull novelizations, and dozens of hours of bonus materials to find out what they are!
Or, alternatively, you could let us do all the work and just read this article. Your call, dude.
Jurassic World -- Why Is Claire Covered In Shit All Of A Sudden?
The Baffling Moment:
Jurassic World's heroes are Owen and Claire, an inept raptor trainer and a cold-hearted businesswoman, respectively, who abandon the heavy moral and philosophical debate of the first Jurassic Park for the sexual innuendo and gender politics of a late-'70s sitcom. Mid-movie, they take off after the genetically engineered indominus rex, which is presumably Latin for "I seriously can't believe they ran out of scary dinosaurs already." When they first enter the jungle, Claire looks like she stepped right out of an H&M catalog:
Reminder: This woman shares DNA with Ron and Clint Howard.
But when we see them next, she's suddenly covered in shit, like a Dickensian street urchin.
"Did a pterodactyl with diarrhea just fly by?"
This isn't the next day or something; this is seven minutes later. So what the hell happened? Sure, wearing high heels in the jungle is probably causing her to face-plant every few seconds, but it turns out there's another reason ...
The short answer is, they cut a scene. The longer answer is, they cut an insane, disgusting, tone-deaf callback to the original movie. In this deleted scene, Owen says they should mask their scent with dinosaur feces -- specifically her scent, because she's a woman and therefore heavily perfumed. Did we mention this movie was made in 2015?
"I'm already a huge piece of shit, you see."
Claire then proceeds to slather dinosaur droppings all over herself in front of Owen. Most insanely, the scene is played as flirtatiously erotic ... which, outside of the darkest corners of the internet, is rare for poop-based scenes.
