Well, under some circumstances you shouldn’t let slip a bar of soap from your hands. Otherwise, you would face rather embarrassing consequences. You know, a male community might consider it a degrading act if you drop a soap in a shower room. How could you take it up in the presence of naked men? Are you eccentric enough to bend yourself before the unclothed males? Some movies contain such spicy scenes. Let’s examine several examples.
Adventure film Tarzan and His Mate (directed by Cedric Gibbons, produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1934) shows a businessman, who has taken a bath. He accidentally drops a soap on the floor. His servant clumsily tries to recover it for his master. Action comedy film Tango & Cash (directed by Andrei Konchalovsky, produced by Warner Bros., 1989) has a scene, where two convicted policemen have had a guesswork, trying to figure out who framed them while taking a shower. Then, a funny dialogue takes place.
Tango: “What are you doing?”
Cash: “Relax. Soap. And don’t flatter yourself. Peewee.”
Tango: “I don’t know you that well.”
Cash: “Don’t worry. Someday the other one will drop.”
Comedy film I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (directed by Dennis Dugan, produced by Universal Pictures, 2007) features a comic scene, where two bars of soap have been dropped to the floor of a shower room. Luckily, a muscular Negro rescues White and Hispanic men from the embarrassment.
