Since 1999 I've been carrying a blue pill in my pocket, holding onto it for the moment when I'd truly need it. The pill, I was told, would instantly erase the memory of any movie — but just the one movie, just the one time. I was tempted to take that pill after Freddy Got Fingered. I had the pill in hand as I walked out of every other Adam Sandler movie of the last decade. But I hung on to it, knowing something even worse was going to come my way one day. Midway through Movie 43, I knew the day had come. As the credits rolled with the inevitable blooper scenes of actors breaking character and inexplicably laughing when nothing funny is going on, I swallowed that pill, hoping to erase instantly all mental images of what had just transpired. It didn't work. The !&$@*! thing didn't work!
Richard Roeper's review of Movie 43

Belkar: (speaking about Roy disguising himself as a woman) That's OK. I can always keep the memory of her for when I'm... alone.
Roy: Excuse me, I need to soak my brain in acid now. Maybe my ears, too.

I've many a time tried to the impossible task of washing away the memory of a sight that should never been seen. And let me tell you this: Febreeze in the eyes only brings more pain.
Red Mage, 8-Bit Theater

Uuhhh! I need new eyes and a new brain!

Chris: I’d say this is the dumbest movie we’ve ever watched, but Judge Dredd and Barb Wire still exist, no matter how hard we try to forget.
Matt: It’s a real horse race.

I could have gone my whole life without seeing Costner drink his own pee.

Dear lord in heaven! First I see a chick's underwear and then some flabby old man in a Speedo?! Turn it off! Stop it at once! I would pay any amount of money if they would take him off the screen! AUUUUGH! Oh GOD his geriatric package MOCKS me! Eeeewww and he's perfectly hairless, too! Someone shaved this old man's bikini zone!! ...I need to rinse my fucking eyes out with Drano now...
Noah Antwiler on The Wizard

Oh, Shoe, you know that given my druthers I’d prefer not to contemplate the twisted chimeric anatomy of your bird-person characters, right? Especially when it comes to the naughty parts. I try not to think about those at all. I only contemplated the concept of bird-breasts obliquely, once, which didn’t stop TV Tropes from quoting me in the epigraph of the article on the subject.

Neelix comes up with the brilliant scheme of asking people to double up in quarters with the Klingons...Did you ever want to watch a scene where Tuvok has been barred from his own quarters because Neelix is getting down and dirty with a Klingon babe inside and they both come to the door in a disheveled state? No, me neither.
Joe Ford on Star Trek: Voyager, "Prophecy"

What’s that? You’ve never heard of this? Are you sure? Certain you aren’t just like me and saw it years back and your brain short-circuited and said, 'No, we are not wasting any space in the hippocampus on this'? Well, then we’re all going to suffer through this together.

Lady CaCa once again proved that she’s the Master of Shit Decisions when she decided that it was a good idea to record a song called 'Do What You U Want' with a well-known piece of turd predator who has done what he wants with the bodies of underage girls including emptying his piss bag on them…That ILLEGAL ass gross video looks like a no-budget porn and it makes me want to point to the eyes on a doll and tell my therapist that’s where Lady CaCa violated me. But you know, I don’t understand this kind of HIGH ART…I mean, some of the world’s biggest filmmakers loved it:

“I saw myself in it. A triumph!” — Roman Polanski

“An inspirational piece of art! Bravo!” — Woody Allen

“Needed more naked twinks, but other than that, it’s a masterpiece!” — Bryan Singer
