What are your favorite examples of coitus interruptus in movies? What is your favorite way we try to pronounce it? I don’t even think we agreed on what the term means, but, as per usual, that doesn’t stop us from holding forth on the subject! Listen to the show to hear us lay out our picks and to hear Kelly read some listener submissions.

Fargo. “Shep, whatthefuckyadoin’? I’m banging that girl!”

I just watched that last week. First thought.

Blue Valentine is a good but horrifying one. “This is how you want it?”

Honorable mention to George Costanza’s coitus interuptus story in The Chinese Restaurant.

I can’t believe nobody mentioned U Turn.

Not a movie, but still: Season 1, Episode 1 of Game of Thrones

Road House

“But I’m on my break!”

Jarhead - Jake Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard train as a sniper team, go through endless boredom punctuated by witnessing the aftereffects of other units’ combat action in Operation Desert Storm. They are finally given a sniper assignment. Action at last! They get into position, snap into perfectly drilled procedure, spot the target, aim, and just as they’re about to finally take the one and only shot of their combat deployment…

lol yes

Another one that comes up is the final scene from The Live.

“Hey baby, what’s the matter?”

8 Mile

Eminem walks in on his mother having sex with a guy he went to school with.

That was no guy he went to school with, that was Michael Shannon!

 -Tom, treasurer of the Michael Shannon fan club

Cruel Intentions - staged; Sebastian “catches” Kathryn and Ronald the chello teacher (or whatever it was he was tutoring Cecile in). Phillipe and Gellar are pretty entertaining when they’re going at each other in this movie (verbally, I mean). It’s not even the best one in the movie though.

Cruel Intentions - also staged! Sebastian walks in on the obviously gay Blaine and closeted proto-Frat boy Greg, aka “the Gregster”. Just in time for an “Oh Baby”. Where as Gellar’s attacks her scene with a feigned but amusing innocence, Blaine’s reaction is amazingly blasé (and 100% authentic, as opposed to Kathryn’s feigned innocense). He even starts filing his nails, sparing only a single eye roll for the back of Greg’s head.

Wait Michael Shannon is in 8 Mile? Maybe I do need to watch this!

You just need to see 8 mile, period. It is a surprisingly well made film.
