A term used
a specific scene/character/device in an otherwise good
movie/play/tv show which is boring, out of place, makes no sense or screws up the pacing. Used
most commonly in musical theatre
a bad song or dance number.
It is derived from
a scene in the 70's musical The Rocky Horror Pictures Show
where one of the lead characters sings
a five minute long uninteresting tourch
having had sex with another
character named Frank. It was completely out of line with the rest of the movie/play and was later cut out of the film. Although it remains in the stage verson and is still known as the worst
song in show.
1: Man, that was a good movie but they were fucking frank durring that one scene. They should
have cut it.
2: yeah, frank's ass was pretty soar at the end of that one.
2: the play is really coming
together but I still feel like we are fucking frank in scene 8.
2: don't worry, we'll get it together before opening night.
