According to GTA Wiki that scene was made up on the spot, as Stephen Ogg genuinely tripped over the fence and decided to improvise from there.

The dialogue at the end of the Jewelry Heist when driving to Lester. It makes me cringe every time.

 

 

"Ha man!"

Franklin tripping over the fence was improvised. Meaning it wasn't intended to happen. Look:
 
- In the mission "Fresh Meat", the opening cutscene was almost entirely improvised by the two main actors (Steven Ogg as Trevor and Shawn Fonteno as Franklin). During motion-capture, Ogg tripped over an obstacle and Fonteno broke out laughing. Upon standing up, Ogg started to yell at Fonteno (in character) and the scene was kept in-game.

The one scene that felt forced is the scene in the mission "Meltdown" where Jimmy is in the limo. It's like he was forced to say those lines.

In "Friend Request" when Michael leaves the offices and rambles on about "Classic Vinewood" sounded pretty damn forced.

And yeah, the Jewelry Store heist at the end made me cringe too.

Couldn't agree more. I skipped it in my every later playthrough.

If there's one person that deserved the award for best voice acting in a gta game,it'd be lamar.

You need to play the game again

I respectfully disagree. Whether or not you like Lamar, his performance was definitely one of the most natural and believable in the game (aside from the over-usage of nigga).

Said over use is very believable.

Lamar was my favorite character in the game, along with Franklin. It was like how C.J. and Ryder were in the beginning of SA.

Where did they get it from? I read it on GTA wiki and on IMDB but I couldn't find any other place where that is said.

I thought the ending where Trevor died was really overacted and completely went against his character. On the flip side I think the ending where you kill Mike is very emotional and feels real. Acting was great for that ending, haven't played the other ending though, seems too much like a cop out for people who whine about a protag getting killed for my tastes.

The only bit of dialogue I remember thinking "Eurgh" to was the one where Michael spoke about the Vinewood movies. There might have been others for me, but in general, the dialogue really worked for me apart from the aforementioned one which really stuck in my mind as being noticeably bad.

Generally the way Michael talks, it doesn't really feel authentic. I mean take the dialogue after Michael beats the sh*t out of that stalker in 'Doting Dad'. "I love you, baby", like WHAT!? Get outta here Ned ..or maybe it's supposed to be like that since Michael is a movie enthusiast. I don't know lol

 

Here, just take a look at this video, skip to 5:22

 

I mean, Ned Luke is a f*cking awesome actor, but whoever wrote these scripts? Needs to be shot imo lol.

The way Michael says "I love you". No matter who he says it to, it always sounds weird for some reason.

 

Ah luuuuvv yuhh.

Well, either way you can kinda tell. Fonteno seems kind of stumped on what to say throughout, not to mention that they're both trying (unsuccessfully, I might add) to hold back smiles the whole time.

 

Edit: Just watched the cutscene again and some of what Trevor says doesn't even make sense. "You're not long for this world." Does that make sense? I might be wrong, but that doesn't seem to be proper English.

Thank you for pointing this out, I mean after all wasn't Trevor supposed to be a Psychopath If I'm not mistaken Psychopaths lack fear, so doubt he would of 'acted like a girl'.

Yea it made no sense. During the prologue Trevor went against an entire police force and refused to run away. But now he's all the sudden scared one armed thug. If he was in character in ending "A", he would have charged towards F out of pure rage, regardless of being armed or not

 

Debra and Floyd pulled a gun and knife on him and he killed them both despite being unarmed

well, I mean, I thought it made sense. he was saying that franklin wouldn't live very long if he continued to act the way he did. maybe I'm the only one that didn't see anything wrong with that line...

I'm surprised no one's mentioned when just before the big score in the strip club office Lester, Michael and Trevor in sync saying "the big one".

I don't know if you'd call it forced/over acting, but it made me cringe so much my cringe was cringing.

The only moment that seemed out of place was when Michael and Franklin were celebrating the jewelry heist at the very beginning of the "Mr. Phillips" when Franklin was ecstatic that they were getting "fifty cents on the dollar" for the jewelry. 

 

To be honest, the whole Michael-Franklin becoming quick buddies thing felt really rushed and unrealistic.

 

I mean just watch (0:38 - 1:04)
