In case you hadn’t noticed, we are in the middle of a golden age of full-frontal penis scenes in American cinema. Over the last decade or two — and especially in the last five years — major actors have shown off their bits and pieces for the world to see and screengrab. Sometimes, it’s for the art. But sometimes, it’s to make us laugh.
The most recent example: Will Poulter’s full-frontal scene in We’re the Millers, in which the 20-year-old actor flashes his (fake) family jewels after they’ve been bitten by a tarantula. The result is not pretty (click here for the uncensored version), but it is pretty funny. Here are 18 others like it.
1. Bart Simpson in The Simpsons Movie
At the very beginning of this PG-13 feature, Bart skateboards all the way to Krusty Burger in his birthday suit — because his father dared him to. Parenting!
2. Ben Stiller in There’s Something About Mary
Back in the bygone late 1990s when peen-based humor was still a rarity in American movies, the Farrelly brothers laughed to the tune of $369 million in global box office sales thanks in part to the shot of Ben Stiller’s fly stuck on Ben Stiller’s ball sack. (Well, it really wasn’t Stiller’s, but you get the idea.)
3. The giant devil in This Is The End
Seth Rogen’s apocalyptic buddy comedy is still in some theaters, so it’s too early for shots of the enormous, smoldering devil penis that towers over Los Angeles at the end of the film to make their way to the internet. Needless to say, it is literally the biggest penis joke in the history of feature film comedy.
4. Saddam Hussein in South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
Speaking of devil penis, in Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s brilliant animated musical comedy, a horny Saddam Hussein tries to turn on his far more bashful boyfriend, the Devil, by flashing his penis — which turns out to be a very, very realistic looking dildo.
5. M.C. Gainey in Sideways
There are few things scarier (or funnier) than the naked husband of the woman your best buddy just slept with attacking your car after you break into his house to get your buddy’s wallet back. Trust us.
6. Amir Talai in Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
At a bottomless party, Harold and Kumar are delighted to see lots of half-naked women (the lower half!), but they’re equally horrified by their friend Raza’s untamed crotch. He’s apparently never heard of manscaping.
7. Sacha Baron Cohen and Ken Davitian in Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
Most of this climatic naked fight scene between Borat (Baron Cohen) and his right-hand man Azamat (Davitian) is actually censored, with large black boxes placed where the men’s peens would be. Except for this lovely shot of Davitian’s taint.
8. Robin Williams in The Fisher King
Robin Williams plays a homeless man living in Central Park who is on a quest to find the holy grail, so, obviously, peen.
9. The streaker in Observe and Report
There is something so desperate and pathetic about a mall streaker, you kind of have to laugh.
10. Jerry O’Connell (kind of) in Piranha 3D
Ah, genital mutilation. That old horror film standby. Piranha 3D upped the ante by giving us a mutilated underwater penis in the third dimension. You can almost reach out and touch it!
11. Ken Jeong in The Hangover
Jeong’s self-described “small penis” also pops up in The Hangover Part II, but the first time is still by far the funniest.
12. Joe Lo Truglio (not really) in Wanderlust
Living outside the confines of society sometimes means shedding one’s clothes. That’s what free love is all about. Sad to say, this particular penis is fake.
13. The killer in Scary Movie
Death by a penis through the ear is a horror film first. Probably.
14. Graham Norton (sort of) in Another Gay Movie
Graham Norton’s character goes by the online alias “Rodzilila,” because — well, you can probably figure that out. The big reveal is appropriately terrifying, and while it’s in a sexual context, it’s as far from arousing as any other crotch shot on this list.
15. Jason Mewes in Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Who knew Jay of Jay and Silent Bob was so well endowed? Other than Kevin Smith, that is.
16. Jason Acuña in Jackass Number Two
There is actually so much peen in the Jackass movies that it’s hard to know exactly where to start, especially since the men of Jackass seem hell bent on the abject destruction of their own peens. By contrast, all Acuña does to his peen in this scene is interrupt a meeting with it, and everyone in this room appears to be delighted by it. A good moment for everyone, really.
17. Jason Biggs in American Reunion
The American Pie series is dominated by Jason Biggs’ Jim’s penis-related embarrassment, but it wasn’t until the fourth film that we finally saw the source of all his trials and tribulations. Granted, it was smashed behind a pot cover, but still. Worth the wait.
