|Never Miss Movie Action with RunPee
By: Jessica Cherok
There's nothing worse than having to pee during your favorite movie. Do you risk missing some vital action by running to the restroom? Or, do you risk trying to hold it through the rest of the movie?
Having to go to the bathroom at least once during a movie happens to nearly everyone. If you happen to be seeing the movie with small children, then you know it can happen several times, in rapid succession. No one wants to trade seeing the good part with a trip to the restroom, but for most, holding that giant soda in your bladder through a two-hour or longer movie (ahem, LoTR) is impossible.
The app was created specifically for this situation. For each movie, RunPee has predetermined Peetimes. Peetimes are "3-5 minute long scenes that don't have crucial plot twists, LOL moments, or exciting action."
The app discreetly vibrates at one of the Peetimes so you know it's a good time to go. If you don't need to leave right then, the app also lets you know how long to the next Peetime.
Even better, the app will summarize what you missed! It will also let you know if there are any extras at the end of the credits, so you don't have to waste time lingering around until every last key grip and location is listed.
