A lot of movies, especially comedies, have crude, gross-out or obscene humor in movies. This is mainly in romance or comedy movies, where characters will do or say something so stupid that it'll have you rolling your eyes.

Or characters made crude or obscene sex humor, eating dog poop, touching each others naked bodies by accident, a guy falling on another guys balls, etc.

There's a lot of sick humor in movies. What is your tolerance for this kind of stuff?

I think it all comes down to the company I'm with at the time. If it's a generally good movie that happens to toss something crude/obscene in, it can get awkward if watching in mixed company. I have a low tolerance for that.

But if it's just me watching and I know going into the movie what it's suppose to be like then high tolerance. There's movies you watch with friends and then you have family movies. I would not watch Human Centipede with family. My girlfriend actually had me turn that one off almost half way through.

I remember watching Austin Powers as a teenager with my parents and that got a little awkward. Recently I started watching the animated movie sausage party, was lame imo. Austin Powers was the best though.

Definitely a case to case thing for me. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. Depends on a lot of factors, but there's a time & place for everything.

Depends on the movie.

If it's about crude characters Im fine with it.

If the movie is generally not about that I'm ok with 1 or 2 gross jokes. As long as it's not the whole way through.

Very, very, very low tolerance. I prefer movies I can both watch with my folks as well as my niece and nephews or even my grandparents. I prefer to leave a little to the imagination.

I'd say I have a pretty big tolerance for gross-out humor, it all lies in the actors performance if it's funny or not.

Balls to the walls. The only South Park episode that truly disturbed me was the Woodland Creatures one. Which might have had something to do with us watching it on christmas eve.

Not a fan of it for the most part. I like movies with a good plot and something I can watch without rolling my eyes at something I don't like.

I actually like things done for shock value, especially for the sake of art or humor. Borat/Bruno didn't bother me.

Pretty low tolerance. Crude humor is not my bag. If it's one or two minor instances in an otherwise decent movie I'm ok with it- as long as it's actually FUNNY- but I generally dislike it when the entire movie is like that. The possible exceptions might be a few specific movies like Van Wilder or Waiting, where it is part of the plot, but done well. Deadpool is another one; come to think of it, all the ones like that that I mentioned were Ryan Renolds flicks, so the actors involved might have something to do with it.

Because Ryan Reynolds is such an attractive man. I get it.

Same reason a guy will put up with a lot more crap from a girl who is a 10 than one who is a 6.

Actually, I think that is only part of it. He is not just good-looking, but has a lot of genuine comedic talent, as well. Not many actors can pull that off. Brad Pitt couldn't. Same goes for Leo Di Caprio. They are considered among the hottest actors, but could never pull off that kind of low-brow humor. Ryan does. Then again, he has made a career out of it starting with Van Wilder and Waiting before he was "big". So it just seems more "natural" coming from him. Austin Powers did it well, too, and Mike Myers isn't half as attractive (in a conventional sense). So it's more about how the actor presents himself in most cases, I think. Ryan being drool-worthy is just a bonus.... :twink:

Very low tolerance; I don't find it very funny in the first place and it sucks enjoyment out of it for me. There are exceptions, of course, but very few.

I'm into it. What annoys me are people who constantly complain about things like fart jokes. Farts are funny.

Also male nudity is never funny. I don't need to see a guy complaining about his balls or whatever in a movie.

I don't know why so many movie writers think seeing a guy naked is funny.

I just find the male body to be repulsive. Most men have ugly bodies.

Limited to just certain things, such as a good parody film that's just supposed to be off the wall and stupid in general.

If a film has the vibe of having been made by grown men who still have the mentality of frat boys, who in turn still have the mentality of 14-year-olds, who believe the audience has the mentality of 7-year-olds... Pass. It's like you can just feel the IQ dropping upon viewing it.

I find the adult perpetual teenager personality and trying too hard rather annoying. (Be it by characters, film makers, or anyone.) Such is somewhat the case with the aforementioned Deadpool. I didn't dislike it, but I honestly expected to like it more. I found the character kind of annoying.


Also male nudity is never funny.
As if they hardly ever try to play it off as sexy. It's almost always some guy you (and by 'you' I mean those of us who would not mind seeing naked men in more movies) you don't want to see.

Agreed. Male nudity in general is intended to either be funny or sexy, never both. And the kind of guys whom us ladies would find pleasing to look at, generally DON'T do the former. Male bodies CAN be attractive, it's just that most comedic actors don't have THAT kind of body. (Ryan being an exception!)

I don't care much for fart jokes, however, as they are so overdone and are the lowest of the low.

Men are disgusting creatures in general, especially the ones with hair all over their body. Even body builders with six packs are a turnoff. Then of course overweight men are bad too.

God thank goodness I'll never have anything to do with men. I hate the way they look. If I were a woman I'd definitely be a lesbian.

I'm definitely in the boat of being able to handle crude humor, but I don't approve of it being directed towards certain characters that're otherwise supposed to uphold certain moral fibers.

Case in point, there was a fan video on YouTube a while back where Superman confided in a therapist that he was addicted to porn and he was raised by white trash hicks. That just did not sit well with me (even if it was just a parody). Ironically, this video was followed up by a funnier episode in which the same therapist speaks with Batman who complains that Robin is coming off gay. I guess I'm biased or something, but for some reason I found that way funnier.

Family Guy is notorious for pulling this kind of sh*t time and time again, and is one of many reasons I grew tired of that show.

I just watched the movie Grindhouse from 2007 which Planet Terror segment was a whole zombie killing movie. It was about a guy chopping off other men's balls, a woman who loses her leg and replaces it with a machine gun, brutal zombie and killing deaths all over with people's heads flying everywhere, and a 7 year old boy shooting himself in the head with a gun.

This is some crazy sh*t.

We've been lead to believe he has the body of an 11 year old girl, so I think he's exempt.

And I find women gross.** But I guess our own perspectives are not the only ones that exist and aren't automatically the "right" ones just because we think it. Huh. How 'bout that.



** And before there are questions or assertions of rightness - Because when you are a woman, you live with the realities of being a woman and an actual human being...not as an idealized vision some men desperately hold onto that doesn't really exist.

And as a straight women, I find women unappealing, so no, I would not be with another woman just because you think men are gross. From this perspective... some man are pretty damn fine and far prettier (in a masculine way) to look at.

edit: Though I should be fair and add that an "idealized" hotness isn't the only attractive thing either. Hot is nice, but I am a sucker most of all for a guy I think is adorable; handsome cuteness (based on my own tastes) wins over hotness.
