'The To-Do List': 8 Biggest Gross-Out Moments of the 2000s

Critics are loving The To-Do List, which hits theaters Friday, and not just for the snappy dialogue and Aubrey Plaza's deadpan tone; much of the praise is for the female-made film's success in breaking open the doors of Hollywood's boys' club, with more sex scenes and poop jokes than you'd expect from a Judd Apatow movie. The To Do List is far from the only comedy in recent years to gross audiences out for a laugh — read on for eight others that charmed us with their potty humor. Image: CBS Films

'The To Do List' and Other Gross Movie Moments

Critics are loving The To-Do List, which hits theaters Friday, and not just for the snappy dialogue and Aubrey Plaza's deadpan tone; much of the praise is for the female-made film's success in breaking open the doors of Hollywood's boys' club, with more sex scenes and poop jokes than you'd expect from a Judd Apatow movie.

'Pitch Perfect'

If those of you who haven't seen Pitch Perfect yet think it's just a sweet, innocent movie about a cappella, you're very, very wrong. In between takes of Anna Kendrick singing "Cups" and Rebel Wilson stealing every scene, there is vomit. A LOT of vomit. Blame Anna Camp's nerves. Image: Universal

'Knocked Up'

It may seem like a long, long time ago, but it was only 2007 when Katherine Heigl was America's reigning sweetheart. Fresh off Grey's Anatomy success, she charmed audiences playing opposite Seth Rogen in Knocked Up, the Apatow-produced comedy that laughed its way to a cool $220 million at the box office. It looks like viewers (but not Anne Hathaway) weren't turned off by the film's explicit birth scene, in which an actual woman's lady parts were used to show a very real, very graphic miracle of life.

'Friends With Kids'

There is a scene in Friends With Kids, the 2012 Jennifer Westfeldt-directed ensemble dramedy, in which Mary Jane (Megan Fox) walks in on her boyfriend, Jason (Adam Scott), changing his baby's diaper. For some reason I don't want to know until I become a parent, feces is EVERYWHERE. Mary Jane pretends not to be freaked out while Jason apologizes for the mess. I know the scene's supposed to show the unpretty side of parenting, but did there really have to be poop all over the wall?! Image: Lionsgate

'I Love You, Man'

There are so many things to love about this 2009 Paul Rudd-Jason Segel bromance comedy, but the projectile vomit scene is not one of them. Maybe it's just me, but I could definitely have lived without watching Rudd release the contents of his body onto Jon Favreau's face. And I bet Favreau could have, too. [Image: DreamWorks]

'Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle'

The pop culture legacy of Harold and Kumar might be its revival of the stoner comedy genre, but some viewers might remember it for introducing the term "battle shits" into their vocabularies. Image: Warner Bros.

'Bridesmaids'

Without Bridesmaids, there very well might not have been The To Do List. With some bad Brazilian food and an empty sink, the 2011 blockbuster proved that guys aren't the only ones who can do potty humor. Image: Universal

'Borat'

The 2006 mockumentary is offensive (and hilarious) on so many levels, but maybe never more so than when Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) gets into a naked wrestling match with Azamat (Ken Davitian). The ensuing scene is spectacularly gross, and left a scarring image that most viewers are still trying to erase, seven years later. Image: 20th Century Fox
