Really? I've never heard it here in New York, or in any American movie I've ever seen. Interesting to hear.

I think more of "Get bent" though maybe only from The Simpsons.

It's somewhat popular in San Diego and people have understood it when I've used it in Boston. There's obviously more popular insults, but it doesn't run into the rubber situation.

Hmmm. In 48 years of living in America (i.e., my whole life), I've never once heard an American say "get stuffed," in real life or in movies. I'm not disputing that you have heard this, but this registers as a very British expression to me (and I have heard Americans say Britishisms like "bloody," but they're doing so self-consciously). So my opinion is that David M. made the right choice with the subs.

Perhaps being confused with the American "Stuff It", but that means Shut Up, and is pretty old fashioned. Agreed that "Get Stuffed" sounds very English.

Pretty sure the only time I've heard "Get stuffed" is in the subtitles to Breathless. "Get fucked," however, is timeless
