If you just had lunch, you may want to quietly escort yourself off the internet right about now.
That's because it's time for the most unholy of mash-ups: the Ultimate Movie Vomit Mashup. Or, as we call it for short, the Throw-Up Mashup.
Featuring choice chunks from "Stand By Me," "The Exorcist," "Clueless" and many, many more, vomit enthusiasts may find it hard to keep their excitement down about this one...or their lunches.
Check out the mashup above, see if you can ID every scene, then yak to us about it in the comments or on Twitter!
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 »
Yesterday, we reported the completely non-shocking news that Eddie Murphy has officially been named the most overpaid actor of 2012 by Forbes. And this isn't exactly a new trend for Murphy, who also came in second on the list of most overpaid actors of 2011. In fact, given his mostly abysmal track record since the late 1980s, we'd have to say that poor Eddie is now in the running for the most overpaid actors of all time.
Which got us thinking: Which actors out there deserved to get some of that money that went to Murphy instead? Who are the most underpaid actors of all time? Get More »
"I was 12 going on 13 the first time I saw a dead human being. It happened in the summer of 1959 -- a long time ago, but only if you measure in terms of years. I was living in a small town in Oregon called Castle Rock. There were only twelve hundred and eighty-one people, but to me it was the whole world."
Those are the first lines spoken by Richard Dreyfus as the wistful narrator of Rob Reiner's 1986 classic "Stand By Me" -- hitting Blu-ray with a 25th anniversary edition today -- and like all truly great opening lines it immediately sets the tone for what turned out to be one of the greatest coming-of-age films ever made.
For those of you yet to experience this masterpiece (shame on you!) it concerns four young boys on the cusp of adolescence who find out the body of a dead kid named Ray Brower is somewhere by the train tracks in a neighboring town. Get More »
It's been 25 years since "Stand By Me" came out but its impact on moviegoers is still as resounding as ever.
Adapted from a timeless novel by Stephen King, "Stand By Me" centers around four young best friends (including Corey Feldman, Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix and the nearly unrecognizable Jerry O'Connell) as they search for a rumored dead body outside of town. While on their grueling journey filled with near-death encounters, terrifying train chases and a nasty run-in with leeches, the boys not only find the body, but also themselves along the way.
Do you stand by us on how awesome this movie is? Awesome, because you might just win a copy of the new, 25th anniversary Blu-ray. Here's how: Get More »
