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.
6. Austin Powers:
The scene with Mike Myers and Tom Arnold was hilariously funny. I added this on the list because of profanity and the obscene language used to shoot the scene. You can never forget how Mike Myers had the assassins’ head down in the toilet and kept saying 2, as if he was referencing taking a dump.
7. Along Came Polly:
The bathroom scene that Alec Baldwin did was a bit awkward and disturbing. The sounds and movements Baldwin was doing were erratic. Ben Stiller’s eyes kept rolling towards Baldwin. You can only wonder what really was going on there.
8. Scary Movie:
The parody to What Lies Beneath was quite cheesy as well. Hair was coming out of the drain of the bathtub. Farris did not look paralyzed at all. In fact, it was torturing to look at the scene as nothing made sense. Someone must have done a real bad impression of Michelle Pfeiffer.
9. Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire:
The scene was not that good, despite the anticipation. In fact, the scene was so short that viewers did not get a chance to digest the whole part where Harry is stripping down and taking a bath.
10. Green Mile:
Not too shabby…but still was that necessary? Tom Hanks, the moaning, the facial expressions. Great work of art but not part of the storyline.
