#1: Most sacrilegious scene

Movie: The Exorcist

Year: 1973

Director: William Friedkin

Okay, how do we begin to describe this scene without being too graphic or offensive? A simulated sex act involving a cross and a vagina. Have we said too much already?

#2: Most commonly re-enacted moment

Movie: Dirty Dancing

Year: 1987

Director: Emile Ardolino

Many of us have failed miserably when trying to pull off Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) and Baby’s (Jennifer Grey) dance routine to ‘(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life’. And while some may have been smart enough to make the attempt in a pool, others have broken bones in their not-so-graceful landing from the lift – but it was so worth it.

#3: Most unconventionally romantic line

Movie: Heathers

Year: 1988

Director: Michael Lehmann

Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder) wants out of the popular-girls clique, known as the Heathers. Jason Dean (Christian Slater) is the new guy. Just as Veronica resigns herself to yet another worthless evening, JD utters the classic line: ‘Our love is God, let’s go get a Slushie.’ He may or may not be psychotic, but he might be just the man to save her from her life.

#4: Best PDO (Public Display of an Orgasm)

Movie: When Harry Met Sally

Year: 1989

Director: Rob Reiner

Katz’s Delicatessen is the scene for a demonstration on how convincing a fake orgasm can look and sound. Sally, played by Meg Ryan, throws her ’80s hairdon’t back, moaning ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ while banging her fist on the table. Right after the ‘climax’, she continues devouring her kosher sandwich. We definitely want what she’s having, even if kosher food is tricky to find in Singapore.

#5: Best use of office equipment

Movie: Empire Records

Year: 1995

Director: Allan Moyle

Liv Tyler catches her best friend, played by Renée Zellweger, having sex with a washed-up pop star on the copying machine.

#6: Most risky foreplay

Movie: Crash

Year: 1996

Director: David Cronenberg

Repulsive, naughty, raggedy and controversial, this is possibly Cronenberg’s dirtiest movie. The plot revolves around couples getting off while having sex during, or just after, a car crash. If you’ve tried all genres of porn and still can’t get it up, this one will take you for the ride of your life.

#7: Steamiest sex scene

Movie: Titanic

Year: 1997

Director: James Cameron

From repulsive to hot, hot, hot! Imagine the amount of calories illfated lovers Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) burnt during their sex scene in a car onboard the ship at sea.

#8: Most awkwardly aggressive bang

Movie: Monster’s Ball

Year: 2001

Director: Marc Foster

Billy Bob Thornton’s character develops an ‘unlikely friendship’ (for the lack of a better label) with Halle Berry, a widower who just lost her child, resulting in a wild sex scene with balls a-flappin’ and breasts a-bouncin’. Oh, and let’s not forget that bird fluttering in the cage.

#9: Most suitable environment for sex

Movie: 8 Mile

Year: 2002

Director: Curtis Hanson

Brittany Murphy pays Eminem an impromptu visit at work during his lunch break at an automobile factory. Instead of his midday meal, he pumps something else other than gas.

#10: Hottest ‘sex’ between two anatomically correct dolls

Movie: Team America: World Police

Year: 2004

Director: Trey Parker

With so many positions – including a money shot – the sex scene between actor-turned-spy-who-shagged-me Gary and saucy team leader Lisa bends all the rules while rocking to Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’.

#11: Best use of sex

Movie: Crank

Year: 2006

Director: Mark Neveldine/Brian Taylor

Amy Smart has sex with dying man Jason Statham– to keep him from dying.

#12: The most grisly outcome

Movie: Rohtenburg (Grimm Love)

Year: 2007

Director: Martin Weisz

Two men meet on a cannibal-dating site, and on the third date one has the other for dessert. This film, inspired by the life of Armin Meiwes – a German man who finds a voluntary human sacrifice via the internet – takes the phrase ‘you look good enough to eat’ to a whole new level.
