Brilliant idea with great information

I’ve been using RunPee for a few years now and it’s basically a requirement of going to the movies for me. The best part of course are the “pee times” that give you cues, synopses and times for when you can pee without missing the most important parts of the movie. There is also information about the credits- length, extras and if there are any extra scenes at the wayyy end. Super helpful to just know that it is or isn’t worth staying. There is a timer function that will buzz your phone when it’s a good time to pee. I also appreciate that the app is very conscientious about it being an app you use in a theater- dark background, all silent alarms etc. I will always enjoy the experience of the theater even if I could watch things at home- but I’ve even used it at home to check for things like after credit scenes or other information too.

From there you can select the genre, or genres, that you want to see. If you select multiple genres, for instance Adventure and Comedy, then by default it will show movies that have both of those genres.

Or you can use the +/- buttons to make it an either/or search.



We have all of the common genres that IMDb and other movie database sites have:


But we didn’t stop there. We added our own genres as well:

True Story
Star Wars
Harry Potter
Awards & Festivals
Tear Jerker
Bond 007
Star Trek
Groundhog Loop
Time Travel
African American Faves
Young Adult

Sure, some of these might be a little redundant. Like I’m not sure myself what the difference is between a Remake and a Reboot. But if you’re in the mood to see a Time TravelComedy movie, then we got your back. 🙂

We’re also gradually working through adding all of the Bond films to the database, along with other series like Star Trek, Star Wars, LOTR, Harry Potter, and lots of others, in time.


We hope you enjoy this feature. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improving it: [email protected].


Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Drive Away Dolls, Madam Web, One Love, Argylle, I.S.S., and coming soon DUNE part II and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.

  1. I love genre splicing!

    On Remake vs Reboot. A Remake is when an old movie is dusted off and remade to adapt to more modern sensibilities. Like how West Side Story is a fairly faithful remake of Romeo & Juliet.

    A Reboot is when you make large changes to the concept and universe. Gender flips like in Battlestar Galactica or Dirty Rotten Scoundrels/The Hustle. Entirely new timelines/relationships/personalities like in JJ’s Star Trek. (Which is technically a ‘soft reboot’ since the original timeline is actually a plot point between Spock and Spock.)

    A Reimaging is just something Ron Moore made up, I think, because I don’t think the term reboot was used so much then, at least as applied to movies.

    So a remake can be also rebooted…and a reboot is a form of remake. But a simple remake is intended to be faithful to the original telling.

    Clear as mud!

  2. That makes sense. Thanks.
