The eye-popping shower sequence during a parody of ’70s exploitation movies was added by John Landis, Jim Abraham explained in Surely You Can’t Be Serious.

He said it was “one of the scenes that gave KFM its R-rating — and probably half the box office.”

The book also notes that the Zucker boys’ mom, Charlotte, appeared in the courtroom scene in Kentucky Fried Movie, and loved to tell people she was in the film. When they asked which part she was in, she alwats replied, “the shower scene!”

We see where they got their sense of humor.
