Bathroom scenes have defined cinemas. They have changed the way we look at stars and movies. Some of them are pointless and are cut too short. The meaning could have been better and illustrated in a more thoughtful manner.
1. Dumb & Dumber:
Lloyd thought Harry was stealing the girl of his dreams. In order to prevent Harry from going on a date, Lloyd adds laxative to his tea. Harry ends up on a toilet, but problems arise when he enters a toilet that is broken. I thought the scene was a bit cheesy as it cut out the repercussions and the ending. How did Harry manage to get off the toilet? Remember the story revolved around 2 not so clever people.
2. Rat Race:
The scene where Cuba Gooding Jr. acts as bus driver was funny, but also awkward for those who are transgendered. The woman was asking Gooding Jr. about the broken toilet. When finding out that the woman was really a man, stereotypes and prejudices came into play.
3. Jurassic Park:
I really thought one scene on the toilet was a bit cheesy and scary at the same time. The lawyer was eaten when a Dinosaur broke down the outhouse where he was doing his business. The outhouse was made of straws. Why would anyone put a washroom made of straws where dinosaurs can invade? This was in fact an amusement park with cloned dinosaurs. Did they forget to calculate risks?
Disgusting, gross, weird scene! Renton dives into the toilet bowl that could be deemed the worst in the world. The scene was based on 1973 novel Gravity’s Rainbow.
5. Snakes on the Plane:
Snakes in enclosed areas are a scary thought. There were two bathroom scenes in this film that were cheesy and horrifying at the same time. It made you wince and laugh as the snake latches itself on a woman’s tit and on dude’s junk.

Since Hollywood makes innumerable movies through any given year, the directors cannot help but use a few clichés in their films every now and then.
1. Action Heroes and Bullets
Action heroes have the superhuman ability to dodge bullets almost every time without getting hit even once. Henchmen are obviously bad shots who never took part in target practice sessions. Almost every action film will include such a scene but the audience will still cheer every time when the hero remains unscathed.
2. All You Need is a Laptop
When the protagonist of a film is trying to find important Government information, all he needs is a few short minutes and a regular laptop. These movies forget to mention the fact that Government data is still mostly on paper. The main character always knows exactly what to do and manages to save the day by the end. Movies like Enemy of the State and Mission Impossible are testaments to this fact.
3. The Third Person Shoots
The movie is about to end and there is a showdown between the good guy and the bad guy. The bad guy is pointing the gun at the good guy and the audience hears a shot. They expect the hero to fall but miraculously, the bad guy keels over and we see a third person who managed to make it just on time. This scene was played out bit by bit in movies like Reservoir Dogs, A History of Violence and Die Hard.
4. The Killer Returns
This scene plays out in almost every other thriller or horror movie. The bad guy is finally dead and the good guy turns his back on him and at the same time looks relieved. The next thing we know, the bad guy lets out a scream and the action resumes.
5. They Always Look Perfect
The James Bond protagonists always look chiseled and fresh no matter how many punches have been thrown in their direction. In addition to that, the women in such films always wake up with their makeup and hair in place.
