Vote up the details you never noticed before.

The term "gross-out movie" was coined in the late '70s to describe the comedy film Animal House. This raunchy new style led the way for other comedies that generated laughs with lewd language and actions. Today, it is a respected genre that contains many of our favorite movies.

Here are small details you may have missed in some of the greatest gross-out comedies of all time.

    The twist is that Lois Einhorn, on whose desk the fruit resides, has a penis and testicles. Redditor u/sirmattimous said it best:

    Seriously, that foreshadowing is as good as it gets in cinema.

    That's Jim Daniel's Kentucky Whiskey rather than Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey. The filmmakers obviously didn't license the real brand.
