The biggest laugh in Carnage, Roman Polanski’s chaotic ensemble comedy, doesn’t come from one of the verbal barbs spewed between the group of ill-mannered New Yorkers. Rather it’s a gut-busting scene (quite literally) that involves, well, spew. And it’s from Kate Winslet, no less. In fact, the actress is so believable in the moment that if the Golden Globes were to vote on a vomit curve, she’d have this thing in the bag. (Bridesmaids‘ Kristen Wiig‘s near-puke in the bridal shop would be a close second.)
Is it the fact that you’re watching an Oscar-winner lose her lunch (in this case, a piece of fruit cobbler) all over another Oscar-winner’s prized art book that makes it so outrageous? Or simply the fact that vomiting, when played for laughs is always funny? Check out the wreckage in Carnage below. But, fair warning, unlike Ms. Winslet, it ain’t pretty.
