    Let's see if I get this correct. You saw a movie that was a comedy, the main character was an actor, he had to kill somebody by drowning them, 4 bubbles came up from what I'm assuming was the drowning, 3 regular sized bubbles followed by 1 large one. Is this what you were trying to say?

    Yes, I apologize, should not have written this so quickly after I woke up, I was a little out of it.

    The character in the film was an actor (yes, it was also played by an actor) or something similar, who had never before killed someone but by acting they knew in movies that when someone is drowned they are dead after the fourth bubble.

    Actually saw this recently. Can't think of it right now, but that sure sounds familiar. I'll have to work on that a little bit.

    Thanks.

    I asked my girlfriend about it, she couldn't remember either but it was something we also saw recently.

    I went through my Netflix recently watched and didn't come up with anything. Last movie we saw in theatres was "The Watch" which I don't think was it..

    Is there anything else that sticks out besides that scene?

    Actually just figured it out. (Gogo Amazon history)

    This scene was in "The Dictator"

    So I wasn't even close with the actor part, but I do remember that the guy didn't know much about what he was doing.

    The movie has it's funny parts.. but does go overboard every now and then.

    There was an old wives tale that a drowning person can only come up three times in their attempt to save themselves. It appears in at least a couple Warner Bros. cartoons, where the character sticks his hand out of the water with one finger, two, three, then waves goodbye.

    I think what was a miss is that the real life actor was playing an actor in the movie. Probably why the first question took so much flak.
