Not too long ago, Screen Junkies posted what we thought were “The 9 Best Vomit Scenes on Film.” Readers were able to keep their lunches down enough to post in the comments section, and suggested some fantastic films that they thought belonged on that list.
So, because we love our readers so very much – especially those who contribute their thoughts to the site – we decided to put together an all-user generated list of puke scenes. It just goes to show what we can all achieve when we collaborate. This is why, when the internet was invented, the scientists high-fived each other a little extra harder than normal.
Screen Junkies presents… The Vomit List: Barf 2.
Editor’s Note: These are in no particular order, except that we saved the best for last.
Want to show one of your characters puking, but need to also demonstrate that time is running out on your heroes, AND a subplot with a guy shtupping a grizzly bear? Do it in a split-screen, like Broken Lizard.
This one makes the list for the sheer ingenuity. Drunk? Check. Embarrassed? Nope! Not when I casually slip over to this sunroof and unloaded my hors d’oeuvres onto its leather seats.
This is one way to get young ne’er-do-wells out of a convenience store: puke on the female’s ass. I don’t think Hal Hartley would have thought this when he was making Henry Fool, but this scene’s keywords along – hooker, puke, ass – are a search engine wet dream.
This scene from Zapped! proves that a man can projectile vomit across a room using telekinesis, or a not-so-subtly placed tube running through the sleeve of his shirt. But that man is Scott Baio, and I’ll believe anything he does. That’s why I believe Nicole Eggert.
This was probably the most requested vomit scene we left out of the original list. It’s an egregious error on our part. May we be puked simultaneously on by eight children on a tilt-a-whirl.
PROBLEM CHILD 2
Another carnival ride-inspired puke, you say? Crazy Dancer + cotton candy = barf. Einstein knew it. We know it now, thanks to Junior’s antics.
Technically not a traditional vomit scene, but if we were standing at the right angle behind this chick, it would look no faker than Scott Baio’s hurl in Zapped! Kudos to the filmmakers for not abbreviating the scene when we had gotten the joke about 30 seconds prior to when they decided to cut out of it.
If you want to make a great film, put Bill Paxton in it. We learned this from Mark L. Lester in Commando. But if you can get him to puke in zero gravity, even better. Ron Howard induced vomiting in a mobile movie set – an airplane doing parabolas way up in the stratosphere. That vomit is real.
Peter Jackson wants you to have your puke and eat it, too. And then pass it to your friend, because that’s what friends do.
WITCHES OF EASTWICK
This is what happens when the Devil himself attends church. Cherries jubilee all over the congregation. Jack Nicholson plays a convincing nut in this scene, but I’d like to think this same event happened for real with Nick Nolte somewhere in ’05.
Okay… this next one is also the last one for good reason… AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK FORGOT MOVIES LIKE STAND BY ME, THE MEANING OF LIFE, ETC. – THOSE MADE THE LAST LIST WHICH YOU CAN READ HERE.
But anyway, a couple of readers suggested this film and – up until a few days ago – we had never gotten to see it. Sacrilege! But our sins are absolved. This British film wins – hands down – for the most intense vomit scene on film. It’s phantasmagorical. It’s over the top. It has people projectile vomiting on a guy to the point of shooting him off a cliff. I cannot beat this. I only came close once after coming back sick from summer camp and, in my half-sleep, puking half a Tyson chicken on the wall next to my bed.
Thanks for cleaning it up, Dad. This clip is dedicated to you.
