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 »

If you're like us, every time you watch the John Belushi classic "National Lampoon's Animal House," you probably think to yourself, "This is great, but if only it had a score written by the Barenaked Ladies."
Well, guess the F what.
Yes, the day you never expected to see -- mainly because it's pretty hard to predict something quite this weird -- is here. Get More »
We at NextMovie don't condone drinking to excess. No sir. Nuh-uh. Alcohol is bad, mmkay?
That said, while watching people get drunk in real life isn't always a barrel of laughs (ever been to a St. Patrick's Day parade?), watching people in movies get drunk can be downright hilarious.
They fall on their faces! They say and do crazy things! (Bless you, Will Ferrell, you are indeed going streaking.) They're far more entertaining -- and infinitely more clever -- than your buddy Joe after he's broken open a bottle of tequila. Get More »
"I always loved fun, shockingly honest movies that just said it like it was. Those have always been the type of movies that I gravitated towards, and the ones that really left a lasting impression.
"I also really used to love all the Mel Brooks films. I can't even single one out because I love them all so much. I love the irreverence of it all.
"Those movies have really stuck with me, and so they're some of my favorites." Get More »
