Leave it to movies like 'Julie & Julia,' 'Like Water for Chocolate' and 'Ratatouille' to celebrate the scrumptiousness of food and exquisiteness of the culinary arts. (See our favorite food scenes in movies here.)

Sometimes, we prefer our cinematic entrees served with a fat heaping of nasty on the side. Check out clips of the 10 most deliciously revolting moments in on-screen ingestion, if you can stomach it.

Campfire stories are supposed to be scary, not stomach-turning, but we forgive you, Gordie, for introducing the timeless legend of Lard Ass into our lives. A simple blend of castor oil, one raw egg and five blueberry pies turns a pie-eating contest into Barf-o-Rama in this unforgettable sequence.

"Nobody can eat 50 eggs." So starved for entertainment are the inmates at the Florida prison where Luke Jackson (Paul Newman) temporarily resides, his ceremonial devouring of the eggs (all without throwing up!) is like the Super Bowl to these guys. And here we always thought all that rape was the most disturbing aspect of penitential desperation.

There are just some things you shouldn't do with food. Like have sex with it. Still, Jason Biggs' quickie with a freshly baked dish of pie is one of many priceless moments that made this hormone-fueled teen comedy an instant classic, even if it forever compromised the sanctity of pastries in the process.



Not only does Andy Farmer (Chevy Chase) unwittingly consume sheep testicles (sneakily advertised as "lamb fries" by the backwoods sadists posing as charming country folk) in this fish-out-of-water comedy, he sets a record for number of sheep testicles consumed. Congratulations Andy!

In Monty Python's self-described quest to offend everyone with their third film ... they did one helluva job. Nothing says classy French restaurant like an impossibly obese man vomiting repeatedly into a bucket. Like 'Stand by Me,' it's not just a pivotal moment in movie food history, but in movie vomit history as well.

In an era of chicken tikka masala and 'Slumdog Millionaire,' India is no longer the darkly mysterious place it was way back in ... 1984, the year we first watched Indy (Harrison Ford) and company served chilled monkey brains (for dessert!). To be fair, the action took place in 1935, but the movie was still banned in India. Some advice today: Avoid ordering chilled monkey brains in Indian restaurants. Even jokingly.

We all know what happens when you send food back in restaurants. Bad things. Well, all of us except Kyle Edwards (DJ Qualls), who unwisely rejects his French toast, and in turn has his powdered sugar replaced by a far more unsavory seasoning (call it "arseley"). But hey, at least he enjoys it!

Did your college campus cafeteria offer an "All You Can Eat" special? No? That's probably because of the shameless abuse of the generous policy inspired by John Belushi's grossly insatiable frat boy. Thankfully -- like the best and scariest of horror films -- most of the carnage is only implied. Most of it.

Never before have we been so conflicted over a screen villain. We don't know whether we want to kill you, or eat you, Pizza the Hutt. Toss in Princess Vespa in a slave costume and we'll take the latter.

'Oldboy' (2004)

Still with us? Wow. Good. We've saved the most disturbingly disgusting moment in movie food history for last (sorry, Divine, feces does not qualify as "food") for last. The honor goes to Oh Dae-Su (Min-sik Choi), who slurps down a large, very much alive -- and very wiggly -- octopus in this acclaimed revenge thriller. How do you say "bon appetit" in Korean?
