Piranha 3D Not Sexist, Includes Flying Penis

wildwildgirls_censored_pic.jpgAfter following the marketing campaign for Piranha 3D and then watching the Comic-Con footage of a wet-T-shirt-contest-turned-blood-bath that features -- among other atrocities -- a busty woman getting her hair caught in a boat propeller (it doesn't end well), a busty woman getting cut in half by an errant wire, and a busty woman getting bitten on the ass by a giant killer piranha, you would have been well within your rights to assume the entire film was going to be some sexist exploitation of the female body. Not so! And the proof is in a flying penis.

The Daily Beast interviewed Piranha 3D co-star Jerry O'Connell about his Joe Francis-like role in the film -- said the actor, "For legal reasons I'm supposed to say, 'I play someone loosely based on Joe Francis'" -- and revealed this bit of happy news:

"Perhaps nothing will spark quite as much insane screaming from audiences as the sight of actor Jerry O'Connell's penis as it comes flying at them after being bitten off by one of these carnivorous creatures."

And you thought 3D was just a passing fad. For his part, O'Connell just wants you to know that like George Constanza before him, a bit of shrinkage was involved:

"The water's, like, 60 degrees. That's, like, really cold. So any images of my penis that have been captured, well, it's freezing water. It's not my best light. It's not my best angle. If it had been humid, you would see it differently."

Is it too early to call Piranha 3D the classiest movie of the summer?

    Well, you can't say that they aren't doing new and creative things with the 3D in this movie.
    I don't know about anybody else, but I have a feeling I'm going to be checking this out on August 20th. Glasses on, butt in seat.
    That TheWildWildGirls.com site is hilarious, by the way.

    What more could a movie need, s'got titties, flesh eating fish and projectile penises. Whose thinking OSCAR?

  • really? says:

    Please, don't delude yourselves into thinking that just because a man's cock gets cut off in this movie that it's not sexist. It exploits womens' bodies just as much as any other crappy horror flick, and the people who watch it are pigs, just pigs who find it amusing to see a man's dick cut off.

    slow day at jezebel?

  • REALLY. says:

    One scene of an over-the-top sexist character meeting a "poetic" demise does not undo an entire movie worth of shameless, unironic drooling over fake tits. I apologize if facts such as this one threaten you.

  • Jabber says:

    It's not sexist to just show breasts in a film. There is rarely vagina in film and there are already loads of films with penises. If you want to be "not sexist" try showing a vagina for once. Not just a woman with no pants, a vagina. Most people these days don't understand a double standard. Breasts are not genitals.

    Absolutely true. Too many cocks and not enough Vag... Thats for sure.
