In the words of comedian Lewis Black, "You have to be brain-dead not to think a fart is funny." (Me of Little Faith, 2008)
We're counting down our top 5 funniest fart and toilet scenes from movies. These scenes are certain to make you crack a smile on even your worst of days.
#5. Dumb and Dumber (1994)
Before Lloyd (Jeff Daniels) heads over to Mary Swanson's house for a date, Lloyd's best friend Harry (Jim Carrey) spikes Lloyd's coffee with a whole bottle of laxative out of sheer jealously.
Moments after Lloyd arrives at Mary Swanson's house for the date, he is met with an overwhelming urge to evacuate his colon.
Funniest Part: Lloyd's bathroom responses to Mary Swanson.
Most would find the sounds of Lloyd's colon, or even the emptying of the broken toilet out of the window, the funniest bits. However, there is a sheer classic Dumb and Dumber moment simply in what Lloyd says to stall Mary as she questions his long bathroom break from the hallway.
From the hallway, Mary says, "I hope you're not using the toilet -- it's broken." To which Lloyd responds, "No, I was just shaving." Mary then questions, "Shaving?" To which Lloyd says, "Yeah, I was running a little late. I thought this would save some time".
Why This Is Funny: Lloyd's responses are funny for 2 reasons. The first is that he arrived at Mary's with a clean shaven face, to which we have to assume Mary noticed when Lloyd arrived at her house.
The second is Lloyd's attempt to genuinely convince Mary that by shaving at her place, that would save some time -- a classic Dumb and Dumb moment. A response by Lloyd intended to be taken seriously by Mary, according to Lloyd, but to anyone with a brain, shaving will take the same amount of time whether he shaved at his house or Mary's.
#4. Love Stinks (1999)
Just moments after shutting the lights off for the evening, indignant husband Seth (French Stewart) begins his colon tirade in an effort to annoy his wife Chelsea (Bridgette Wilson) before the two fall asleep.
Funniest Part: The unique and acrobatic farts
Seth's first two basic farts are designed to disturb the peace, with the third fart exemplifying his impressive release coordination.
Just before he releases the third fart, Seth says to Chelsea, "...I feel like I've passed the worst of it and I need some cuddle time. Oh wait, I was wrong -- incoming." The third fart comes to us in a high pitch squeal at first and then abruptly graduates to an air puncher, exemplifying Seth's phenomenal sphincter control.
However, Seth's sphincter skills really shines with his fourth fart. Just before he releases it, he says, "Feet are on fire. Wait wait wait wait wait." What follows is a single, gaseous fart that is selectively broken up and impressively muted at intervals as it leaves Seth's colon.
Why This Is Funny: While most movie fart scenes attempt to extract humor from the loudness and texture of the fart, the farts from "Love Stinks" show us an amazingly acrobatic and skillful release of methane. Superb control and coordination.
#3. White Chicks (2004)
Almost immediately after lactose intolerant surrogate for Tiffany Wilson, FBI agent Kevin Copeland (Marlon Wayans), consumes nearly an entire tray of cheese hors d'oeurves, the gas leaks begin and she (he) breaks for the toilet.
Funniest Part: "Move, bitch."
Since Kevin is posing as Tiffany Wilson, he must use the women's bathroom to keep his cover. As he storms the women's bathroom door, he literally runs into a lady leaving the bathroom and says, "Move, bitch."
Why This Is Funny: Kevin says, "Move, bitch" as Kevin, in a deep, masculine voice instead of his feminine, bubbly imitation Tiffany Wilson voice. Kevin's complete lack of regard to keeping his true identity a secret as he runs into the lady leaving the bathroom tells us how badly his rear needs to make contact with the lips of a toilet.
Once Kevin touches on the toilet, he's quickly reminded that his girlfriends followed him into the bathroom from their mirror conversation. Remembering that he is posing as Tiffany Wilson, he attempts to control the gas flow rate.
Unfortunately, Kevin has been plagued with high pressure methane. This means that no matter how slow he attempts to release the gas, large volumes of trumpets break through, leaving little to no room for control of flow rate.
Kevin eventually yields to the pressure in his colon and unleashes the gaseous wrath. This disturbs the peace of his girlfriends' mirror conversation. Almost as if they were fearful for their safety, the girlfriends anxiously leave the bathroom and Kevin to his own devices.
#2. Haunted House (2013)
A live video feed at 2:43 a.m. of young couple Kisha (Essence Atkins) and Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) sleeping in their bed captures the dark, inexplicable flatulence of a sleeping and almost completely motionless Kisha.
Funniest Part: The force of Kisha's farts inflate the bed sheets while she remains completely motionless.
The first fart introduces itself after a loud rumble, which, after the fart, we assume the rumble came from Kisha's colon. Right off the bat, the first fart pitches a tent due to its force and wakes Malcolm up. At times, the first fart appears to wane, but comes back and remains forcefully strong until the end.
Malcolm makes it known the first fart is rancid because he coughs and says, "How could someone so cute be so stink?" He brushes it off and heads back to sleep.
Why This Is Funny: The powerful force of Kisha's farts, reflected in the movement of the bed sheets, is met with absolutely zero movement or response from Kisha until it wakes her up.
3 minutes later, the second fart comes roaring in with such a force and smell that it forces Malcolm to get out of bed to fetch an air freshener.
As Malcolm makes an effort to freshen up the air while Kisha remains asleep, the next series of farts begin and are released in an almost conversation-like manner with Malcolm.
Eventually, the smell of the subsequent farts is no match for the air freshener. Malcolm is forced to leave the room, only to be yelled at one last time by a fart who attempts to claim victory without Malcolm hearing, but he does.
#1. Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999)
While Deuce (Rob Schneider) and his father, Bob (Richard Riehle), are having a serious conversation in the bathroom about man whoring, a gentleman walks in and creates quite the colon backing track.
Funniest Part: To this day, no one knows the conversation Deuce and his dad had in the bathroom.
Try as you may, you'll never be able to comprehend the conversion between Deuce and his father, as the gentleman in the stall creates an attention diversion.
Why This Is Funny: The serious inquiry about man whoring by Deuce to his father brushes up against and holds hands with the slapstick intestine orchestra during their entire conversation.
Every effort is made to hear what sage advice Bob has for Deuce regarding man whoring, but the gentleman in the stall next to them -- who is blowing out his intestines -- would rather you not know.
What makes this scene even more hilarious is that both Deuce and Bob completely ignore the trumpet screams from the gaseous gentleman in the stall until he dumps what sounds like clam chowder into the toilet.
In the midst of collecting his thoughts to respond to his dad, Deuce finally caves and turns to look at the stall in what appears to be complete perplexity and disgust.
That brings an end to our top 5 funniest movie fart scenes! Let us know below what you think of our list and if there are other hilarious movie fart scenes worthy of acknowledgment.
