Since last week’s discovery of F.A.R.T. the Movie (“about a man named Russell who is obsessed with farting. His girlfriend Heather despises farts and becomes angry with Russell because all he does is watch television and fart.), I’ve scarcely been able to sleep. How could so magnificent a film escape my notice for so long? Inspired by that fine piece of cinema, our video editor Oliver has put together a compilation of 20 classic movie farts in two minutes. NEVER FORGET. The tragedy that F.A.R.T. the Movie was lost for so long shall not be repeated.
Additional Trivia: If you’re keeping score at home, this compilation actually features fart scenes from three separate Best Picture Oscar winners (Rain Man, Dances with Wolves, and Amadeus). To my knowledge, they are the only Best Picture Oscar winners ever to prominently feature farting, unless of course you count Crash, which was actually an unauthorized sequel to F.A.R.T. the Movie. True story.
Oliver would also like to point out that he drew upon this list of cinema’s greatest fart scenes for inspiration.
