These bloopers make us love the Guardians of the Galaxy even more

Marvel's two Guardians of the Galaxy installments are the ultimate comic book movies. They're action-packed, they're exciting, and they're even meaningful. Director James Gunn and Guardians stars like Chris Pratt, Michael Rooker, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Kurt Russell keep things rolling along, surprising and entertaining the audience in entirely different ways from one minute to the next. Best of all—and unlike many other superhero and action movies? They're really funny. It'll be awhile before the gang goes on its next adventure, so to tide you over until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is released, here are some of the funniest Guardians of the Galaxy moments caught on set. You can call this "Awesome Blooper Mix #1."

Rooker books it

A "walk and talk" scene has got to be one of the hardest for actors to nail down. Not only do they have to have conversation while walking quickly, but they have to time it just perfectly so that they end the walk and the talk on the spot where the director wants them to stop. During Guardians of the Galaxy, actors Michael Rooker (Yondu) and Tom Proctor (Horuz) had to pull off a walk-and-talk…but didn't quite manage to. Both guys got so into their dialogue that they walked right off the set. Rooker, however, ran with it, giving Proctor a good-natured ribbing while staying in character.

A blooper from a galaxy far, far away

The Star Wars universe is extremely embedded in our culture—so much so that when you hear a person say the word "star," your brain might just go on autopilot and fill in the "wars" part afterward. If it happens in real life, it's a little embarrassing…but understandable. It's also embarrassing when it happens on the set of a movie—particularly one that isn't a Star Wars movie. While shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2., Kurt Russell speaks of a "man they call Star Wars." Clearly, he meant to say "Star-Lord," who is, you know, a character in the movie.

Dance-off in space

The Guardians of the Galaxy movies are so entertaining because they've got a little bit of everything. Action, humor, and pathos, sure, but also…dancing! Characters dance all over the place, especially Star-Lord, a.k.a. dancin' machine Chris Pratt. In this clip, he takes his costars 2 da streets, or rather the surface of an alien planet, and engages them in a prolonged dance battle. It's so silly and funny that it's amazing it goes on as long as it does before somebody cracks up.

Wire work gone haywire

The Guardians of the Galaxy movies take place on various planets with varying levels of gravity. They also offer plenty of body-catapulting explosions and characters with otherworldly superpowers. To make all of that look realistic, the actors have to strap themselves in for some wire work. Even for action movie veterans like Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell, flying around (and hanging around) a soundstage is definitely hard to get used to.

Rocket to the gag reel

Groot and Rocket Raccoon are the result of the combined magic of CGI, the voice work of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper (respectively), and motion capture. And thank goodness the movies used real-life human stand-ins for the tree man and his trash panda buddy, because how else would a blooper featuring these two characters be possible? Poor Rocket—so tough and yet so little, just can't pull himself up into a hatch.

Kisses from Kurt

Kurt Russell was a delightful and charismatic addition to the Guardians universe, portraying the human manifestation of Ego the Living Planet (and also Star-Lord's father). Russell is famous for his roles in a long list of beloved movies, including Escape from New York, Overboard, Tombstone, and Big Trouble in Little China. At least two generations have grown up watching his movies, lending the actor a paternal air. That comes out in a big way in this on-set footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in which he goes around delivering tender forehead kisses to a number of his costars.

Nonsense. Utter nonsense

Here's a blooper-sullied take that made its way into the final cut of Guardians of the Galaxy. While dealing with a rare goods dealer known as the Broker (Christopher Fairbank), Yondu (Michael Rooker) frustrates and upsets the guy by mumbling in what could be some kind of obscure alien language…but which is really just gibberish. Rooker is committed to the bit and never strays from the task of delivering utter hogwash. It's costar Sean Gunn, portraying Yondu's first mate, Kraglin, who can't handle Rooker's bravura performance. A creeping smile finally turns into a quick, explosive laugh—and director James Gunn kept that moment in the film.

Nonsense. Utter nonsense (Vol. 2)

It's apparently no sweat for Michael Rooker to make up his own real-sounding nonsense words in a pinch. But give the guy some comic book/science-fiction movie dialogue heavy on the technical side, and he just can't get the words out without stumbling. This Guardians Vol. 2 blooper offers hilarious proof of Rooker's inability to spew scientific-sounding mumbo-jumbo.

Lee Pace loses his pace

Prior to joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Lee Pace worked primarily an actor in more straightforward dramas. Under a hood, body armor, and scores of makeup and other wearable special effects, Pace is virtually unrecognizable as the fearsome Ronan the Accuser—but he's still an experienced actor who wants to do a good job. In this clip, he's shown working hard to memorize his blocking and his lines…but then still doesn't get them totally perfect.

Chris Pratt doinks around

There are lots of ways to make a baby. Well, okay, at the end of the day there's really only one (spoiler alert: sperm meets egg). But that's just how it is on Earth. Other cultures on other planets reproduce a little bit differently, as Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 explains to Star-Lord (Chris Pratt). He counters with some education of his own, like how humans procreate through a magical process known as "doinkin'." Pratt can't keep a straight face after delivering that line…nor should he be expected to.
