Top 5… Toilet Scenes

Let’s revel in some low brown humour for a change and look at cinema’s greatest toilet scenes. Not just bathrooms, so no Full Metal Jacket or Psycho I’m afraid, but those that specifically feature the porcelain throne.
In an attempt to ruin his date, Lloyd (Jim Carrey) has given his pal Harry (Jeff Daniels) a heavy does of powerful laxatives. To top it off, Harry’s latrine of choice doesn’t have a working flush.
4. Snakes on a Plane
What could be worse than airplane toilets? The constant motion of the plane means you can’t really stand up, there’s no ventilation and the bowl is full of snakes just waiting to bite off your penis.
3. Sin City
Shellie (Brittany Murphy) has a problem: her abusive ex Jackie Boy (Benicio del Toro) has dropped by with his gang of thugs and needs to take a leak, but her new boyfriend Dwight (Clive Owen) is hiding in the bog. No worries, Dwight soon deals with the situation via the toilet bowl, but I’m guessing Jackie Bo wishes he’d flushed first.
2. Trainspotting
In a heroin-fuelled high, Renton (Ewan McGregor) is forced to use the most disgusting toilet in Scotland (and therefore, the world), and for reasons best known to himself, decides to take a swim.
Cowardly lawyer Gennaro (Martin Fezzero) flees two defenceless kids to hide from a T-Rex, but the flimsy bamboo toilet cubicle is no match for the giant dino, who doesn’t take any heed for hygiene when he eats something straight off the loo seat.
Honourable Mentions:
American Pie: Germaphobe Paul Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) finds himself caught short at school after nemesis Stifler spikes his thermos with laxatives.
Austin Powers: When Powers visits the latrine, he’s taken advantage of by an Irish assassin, is no place sacred?
And the worst:
Harold and Kumar Get the Munchies
The luckless druggies get stuck in the cubicle between two hot British twins, who decide to play ‘Battle-shits.’ Barely even comedy, this borders on biologically questionable and downright nauseating.

  1. Here's another honorable mention for the worst. In Not Another Teen Movie there's a scene with the three younger teens in the vents above the women's bathroom. Let's just say that there's a lot of sound effects and the vents and floors are not very sturdy.A couple other quick things – welcome to the LAMB!Also, do you mention anywhere where you pulled the different lists from?

  2. Good call on Not Another Teen Movie, forgot that little gem. I remembered another that should probably have made the Best list; The Dude getting his head repeatedly shoved down a dunny in The Big Lebowski: "It's down there somewhere, let me take another look." Can't believe I forgot that one.Thanks for the welcome. I'd hoped to finish revamping the sire before I got posted on the LAMB, but hopefully I'll get it done in the next few weeks, as I'm aware the site is a little unprofessional and bare-bones at present, so watch this space.The list sources can be found on the first List post here: but I'm planning to put them each on their specific page during the rejig.Thanks for reading, I appreciate it!
