They're called gags for a reason, folks.
The idea of gross-out comedy is nothing new: Since the dawn of modern cinema, filmmakers have tried to capture audiences' "yucks" along with their yuks. Beginning with 1914's silent feature "Nell's Eugenic Wedding," in which a character eats soap and then repeatedly vomits for supposed chuckles, bodily fluids, nudity and innuendo have been trotted out for an uncomfortable laugh.
This weekend sees the release of "Movie 43," perhaps the granddaddy of all gross-out movies, consisting of several comedy shorts strung together to make an aggressively raunchy full-length movie. Boasting some of Hollywood's top names — Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman and Elizabeth Banks, to name just a few — performing unspeakable acts, some wide-eyed moviegoers may find the flick tough to stomach.
They say the best way to acclimate to a new experience or overcome a phobia is to face it. "Movie 43" doesn't come out in theaters until this weekend, so we can't show you more than the trailer right now, but we can condition you with the most gag-worthy gags in recent memory. Without further ado, please enjoy ("enjoy") the 10 gross-out movie scenes that haunt our dreams. Get More »
