Gotta go: Settle into your seat, choose your film, and start the timer to tell RunPee to alert you when a bathroom break arrives. The detail screen for each film lists a handful of okay-to-miss scenes, sorted by start time and showing how long each scene lasts. The app includes only current-run films, and lets you sort by title or release date.

What did I miss? When you run pee at one of the selected scenes, the app gives you a recap of what’s happening onscreen. Settle back into your seat without missing a beat. Not all of the scenes are dogs—especially for the best films. Some have been picked just because they’re easily explained, with the logic being that even if you miss a great scene, you’ll know what you missed.
