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.

Mediatoilets aside, we all know the statement John Hughes made about growing out of school peer groups in The Breakfast Club. And then there was Amy Heckerling’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High contradicting humour with some bitter realities of life while capturing the contemporary spirit. I always like to combine these two with Joel Schumacher’s St. Elmo’s Fire, because this excellent drama takes us another step closer to adulthood, pointing out the transition from the juveniles the characters once have been to the grown ups they reckognize they’ve become.

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

Now if this isn’t the godfather of all mediatoilets! Gosh, how impressed have we been of all the shouting and yelling when we were kids. Stanley Kubrick hit a nail on its head with his anti-war movie Full Metal Jacket. The most memorable scenes back then have been from the training sequences. Just look at that crapper hall. How uncomfortable must it be to take a dump if you want to become a marine?

The first entry to a large survey should be a classic. Read this as a suggestion. If you haven’t watched “Way of the Dragon” yet, do so.
Bruce Lee’s skin fits tightly to his muscular system. Squired by a streak of humor he impresses with unfussy effectiveness. Anybody reciting their popular Chuck Norris dictums will be illumed by Bruce Lee’s superiority in a stunning faceoff at the Roman Colosseum.

During the first 25-30 minutes Bruce’s character looking for a toilet is a tiny running gag. I won’t spoil the incident, but I found two details in “Way of the Dragon” astoundingly enough to mention.
First factoid I spotted when Bruce finally enters the restroom. Whilst he had been travelling to help the owner of a chinese restaurant in Rome, which to my knowledge is in Italy, the ersatz signs read very english.
