Has any mainstream movie shown a person's anus? This subject came up in a debate about Borat. Did that movie show that guy's anus? If so, was it the first mainstream movie to show anus?

(Only human anus counts.)

I don't believe I have ever seen an anus in a non-porn movie. I'll keep on the lookout for you.

Perhaps you could Ask Cecil. But before you do that he asks that that you check first: -

I think that, technically, your question is tautologically impossible: once a movie shows someone's anus, it is by definition not a mainstream movie.

There were several anus shots in "Honey, I Shrunk Your Anus"

Lipid, I have to comment that you waited 2 years, only to post in an anus thread?

Not to be confused with the porn remake, "Honey, I Enlarged Your Anus", which doesn't count, as it's not mainstream.

IIRC, wasn't there was also a 3 minute uncut closeup of a human anus in "Driving Miss Daisy"?

No, that was "Pile Driving Miss Daisy."

Pretty much every movie with Tom Cruise in it.

This one's not exactly a closeup, and I think you have to turn up the brightness. I believe you can see something of Sherilyn Fenn's anus for just a split second as she is spun around in the film Two Moon Junction.

You could look on that website "Mr Skin," although I couldn't guarantee results, since it's "Mr Skin," not "Mr Mucous Membrane."

My WAG is "To Live and Die in LA."

Did they name the movie after that scene?

I think the French movie Baise moi has a shot of a gun shoved up against an anus before it is fired. It's not a comedy.

Pretty much every movie with Tom Cruise in it.No, the OP specified that only human ani count. The burden of proof is now on you to show that Tom Cruise is human.

More to the point, is the OP correct that Borat showed an anus? I'd be able to tell you, except that I kept my eyes away from the screen for a lot of that scene.

A do believe you get a brief flash from Ewan McGregor as he's thrown or tumbling, I forgot what exactly. But you'd probably need the DVD, the pause button and possibly a zoom button to see anything. But from sitting in front of a big screen something lept out at me at that moment.

There was far too much of an anus in Pink Flamingos which, while not technically porn, is definitely not mainstream.

It occurs to me that there's a mass-mooning scene in Braveheart. There would have been an unobstructed line of sight to multiple ani in that scene, though the shot was from a great enough distance that each one would probably have been smaller than a pixel.

Pink Flamingos might qualify, depending on where you draw the line for "mainstream."

Pink Flamingos is definitely. DEFINITELY. Not. Mainstream.

You know, I completely forgot to mention that the movie was "The Pillow Book." Heh, sorry.

A non-human anus was pivotal to the resolution of the forgettable David Duchovny comedy Evolution. They figured out what chemical would harm the giant alien, where they could get it in sufficient quantities, and how to deliver it into the alien's body.

Well, it kind of was, in the sense that it was seen in theaters by ordinary citizens who weren't wearing peepshow raincoats.

Sorry, this quote had me in stitches.

But I'd vote for any movie with mooning scenes. There seriously must be some skinny dude with no ass, and I know I've seen a movie where someone moons and spreads their cheeks. You probably won't get much more than that in a non-porn movie.

I was wondering if anyone would notice that! I've been lurking for quite some time but recently decided to pay the membership fee.

I'm trying to remember if Jackass actually showed an anus. Besides the x-ray of the one with the truck up it.

or the one near the gooch with the electrode stuck to it.

CalMeacham

I realize the OP specified only human, but Evolution showed what was undoubtedly alien anus at the ...End? Climax? These all sound like double entendres.

I'm sure there must be non-human anuses in lots of other pictures.

That nasty sphincter under the tripod thingy in War of the Worlds sure looked like an anus to me.

Actually, the most anus-like thing I recall from a mainstream pic was the iris aperture that the Enterprise uses to go into V'Ger in Star Trek -- The Motion Picture

That was his flaming vagina.

And isn't Amon Amarth = Mount Doom? Sauron's vagina was on top of his giant phallic Black Tower (the elvish name of which escapes me).

Ah, the "blink and you missed it" anus. I do think it's good that, if it is to be the first, Sherilyn Fenn's anus was the first. If her anus is as cute as the rest of her, it's starting off on the right ... cheek ...?

Indecent Behavior if I recall is an "erotic thriller" which kind of treads the boundary between mainstream and softcore. I don't know if I would consider softcore porn mainstream in the sense in which the OP uses it, but then again, erotic thrillers do have a way of blurring those lines. I mean, probalby "Body of Evidence" would be considered by most to be a mainstream movies, as would "Bound" and, well ... "Two Moon Junction" and I'm not sure you could come up with a definition that would include those movies in the mainstream and exclude "Indecent Behavior."

I will have to take a principled stand of having no idea if "Indecent Behavior" can be considered a mainstream movie or not.

According to Kevin Smith and Ralph Garmin on their Hollywood Babble-on podcast, you can see Anne Heche's butthole very briefly in the Psycho remake from 1998. I have not seen the movie myself.

From the original Psycho, Janet Leigh told her own story of this same fundimental issue. For the shower scene, she took a trick from the ecdysiasts and attached a figure-8-shaped piece of flesh-colored adhesive moleskin from her tailbone to her pubic bone.

Nonetheless, the shoot attracted as many memeber of the crews to the set's overhead lighting structure as it would bear. While holding the pose of her dead draped belly-down over the edge of the tub, she felt the moleskin slowly peeling away under the shower, until she and the crew were staring at each other, as it were.

There was a clear shot of Eleanor James in Forest of the Damned, which is not even
an erotic movie.
