Sydney gets hit by car on Melrose Place

Sydney getting hit by a car is one of the greatest TV moments even if you've never seen "Melrose Place" before (skip ahead to 50 sec for the good part).

Think about it.  How many times do you really get to see someone in a wedding dress get hit by a car on TV?

It's the perfect storm of a ridiculous scene with special effects that are laughably bad and tons of poor acting to go with it.

The quick cut from Sydney's face before getting hit makes it quite obvious that they used a rag doll and then dressed up a stunt guy in a wedding dress to roll on the ground.

The wedding photographer had two lines and couldn't even say them like he wasn't reading off a script.  Especially the lackluster "look out" line.

Then there's the guy unnecessarily yelling in the background about trying to get the car door open who's trying to make this his moment to shine.

Not to be upstaged, the groom pulls out every trick in his dramatic acting playbook before he has to yell "She's dead" to eliminate any doubts that Sydney might be alive.
