15 Movies And Shows With Subtle Sight Gags

It's pretty easy to speculate about how these sneaky shout-outs got into these blockbusters. Maybe making movies gets boring.

We can’t deny it. We love writing about sight gags, easter eggs and clever little details hidden in movies. We’ve covered famous TV gags we’re likely to never see again. We’ve covered hidden jokes in very famous works of pop culture. We’ve even talked about absolutely ridiculous and subtle gags that almost everyone missed.
