You probably remember Police Academy, but do you remember Moving Violations? It’s from the same stall though and the reason it never took off as well might be the main character here is Bill Murray’s little brother John who gives an impression of what his sibling might have done, or Dan Aykroyd if he gets off this path. Other than that, you get the full treatment of 80s slapstick with all its absurdity. The cops are just one side of two here, the other is taken over by all average kind of people who currently lost their license and will struggle in class to earn it back.
Anyway, we at Mediatoilets aren’t on the internets to bore you with a review. We do serious business about where people do their business. In this case we have two occasions interesting to our epicures. Both have to do with James Keach and John Murray moving to the restroom one way or another. So let’s just start with the second encounter as I will not reveal, if the cop is going to find the droid he is looking for.

A crazy flick like this wouldn’t be complete without a toilet. So our beloved Joe Dante and Allan Arkush put one in their very first movie produced by Roger Corman. I don’t have to tell you much about this masterpiece because you either know it, and you should, or you can read my review at my other blog Awsomazing Slackery.

This toilet’s guests are surely as amazing as Hollywood Bouleward itself is as a movie. Just have a look at Godzilla(!) exposing some intellectual skills for the first time in movie history.

Thanks a lot for this lead to Intergalactic Ape-Man.

Almost everbody knows The Big Bang Theory, I guess. Especially amongst internet users. Now you do also know then that digestion is strongly in focus on the show. Main character Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) for example is obsessed with control over his bladder and his bowel movement. As funny the punchlines are, rarely though do we catch a glimpse of the locus delicti.

What Ape-Man pointed out was that we actually get to see the shared bathroom of Sheldon and his roommate Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) in the pilot. I’m really unsure if we ever gain a more detailed insight into that sacred place at all. So if you have any idea where to pick up more toilet and bathroom shots from The Big Bang Theory, drop me a line. I know at least Penny (Kaley Cuoco) has an accident in her own shower later. (And I realize that her surname still wasn’t revealed altough we even know her father.)

But back to what you are after on Mediatoilets. The toilet! It is not in use during the scene but the mentioned fact that the intimate act is never portrait on The Big Bang Theory should be impulse enough to celebrate what we get our dirty hands on. This scene starts when new neighbor Penny asks Leonard if she could shower at their place. Because the bath mixer is a little wayward Leonard has to assist Penny who in return chafes everybody sporting a towel only.
