Best skin flick of all time.

This is my way of balancing out a universe in which people are actually voting for chick flicks.

Ahhhh, the 80's.  The last decade in which it was ok to make a movie that wasn't about anything other than excuses for women to take off their tops.  I was discussing this with a friend recently, and we were trying to decide which of the 80's boob fests was the truly defining movie of the genre.  Which one did we most often stay up till 3am to watch on cinemax?

What's your favorite silly plot as a framework for constant toplessness?

Here is my list of fondly remembered favorites.

Hardbodies:

A cinemax classic.  Every teenage boy who saw this remembers it fondly.  No movie have more boobs per frame in history.  Literally every woman in this film takes off her top at one point or another.  It's true skin flick gold.

Blame it on Rio:

Michelle Johnson at 19, and a pre boob job Demi.  Need I say more (har har)?  This was Michelle's first movie, and when she appears topless the first time on that beach, it is astonishing in it's simple sexiness.  A true classic.  And the movie is funny!

Private School:

And all girl school as only a teenage boy could imagine it.  What, they don't really have pillow fights in their underwear all the time when they aren't showering together?  Say it ain't so!

Reform School Girls:

The bad girl version of Private School.  Knives instead of pillows, but still a lot of underwear and showering.  I like bad girls, and this one is a personal favorite.  Also includes Sybil Danning as the tough matron type.  How is that a bad thing?

Bolero:

Too artsy fartsy for it's own good.  This movie was trying to pretend it wasn't an hour and a half Bo Derek softcore porn film.  But if you can see past the pretension, it is an hour and a half of Bo in all her glory.  It pays off the sexual tension we developed while watching the movie 10.

Lady Chatterly's lover:

Was the artsy film Bolero tried to be.  This was actually not a bad movie.  And it really only has one women ever get nude.  But as a teenager, this was the most erotic thing I had ever seen.

Cannibal Women in the Avacado Jungle of Death:

This movie is the only film that had both Shannon Tweed and Adrienne Barbeau.  There really isn't anything left to say after that, is there?

Shannon Tweed:

Ah, Shannon.  Her name in the TV guide listings kept every male under 17 up till 3am watching cinemax.  She never did a movie in which she didn't appear nude, and I respect that kind of commitment to your craft and medium.

Sybil Danning:

Sybil was the tough girl version of Shannon.  She was not afraid to play a villain or warrior princess.  But she always played them as a villian or warrior princess with an amazing and often exposed rack.  And that makes her very special.

Adrienne Barbeau:

She was an enigma.  She had the goods, we all knew it.  She has one of the most amazing racks in the history of cinema.  Every blouse she wore strained to hold back its awesome power.  But she would go whole movies without it ever being exposed.  When you stayed up till 3am to watch one of her flicks, you never knew what you were going to get.  It was amazingly frustrating, but when it DID happen (Thank you, for swamp thing.  Thank you so very much.), it was an awe inspiring spectacle.  To this day, she is still my favorite of the busty B queens.  Frustration and anticipation make the eventual success all the more sweet.
I am not afraid.

Oh, and I would have sold my mother to gypsies for a movie with all three of those lovely ladies in it.

You know, I have seen a lot of movies, so it's rare that I see a list of films with 8 items where I haven't seen any of them.  And yet, even though the last three actually encompass many movies, I can't say that I'm in any way qualified to vote in this poll.

Well what do you know.  Shannon Tweed was in Dragnet, Sybil Danning was in Battle Beyond the Stars, and Adrienne Barbeau was in both Back to School and Carniv?le, all of which I've seen.  I don't remember seeing any of them nude, though.

By the way, Slash, it seems that both Shannon Tweed and Adrienne Barbeau appeared in a 1997 film called Bimbo Movie Bash.

It's amazing how many of those I've seen, especially considering that I lived too far out in the country to get cable when I was growing up.  Luckily, I had a cable equipped friend in town whose house I spent the night at pretty much every weekend, and his parents...well, let's just say that they put up a good front when they'd talk to my parents, but they were truly *awful* adults to have in charge of a bunch of early teen teenagers.  Much to our soft core porn watching delight.

I'm going to have to go with Blame it on Rio though--it's the rare movie of its type that I would have enjoyed even without the nudity.  I saw it on Comedy Central a few years back, censored of course, and it had held up surprisingly well, I thought.

I just didn't remember most of these films, so it took me some time to "research" them on the Internet.
Excuse me; I'm making perfect sense.  You're just not keeping up.

Of the films mentioned, I've only seen Swamp Thing, and Adrienne Barbeau was very intimidating.  (My coffee-enema-wielding grandmother had large breasts, therefore I am intimidated.)

I prefer more smallish figures...something along the lines of Daryl Hannah in Blade Runner or perhaps even Mariel Hemingway in Personal Best.

And then there are the Porkey's movies.  My wife has to be the only person on the face of the earth to have actually read the novelization of Porkey's.  Her mother refused to let her see it, so she bought the book.   :lol:

Blame it on Rio is very popular.

There is probably an entire generation of mid 30's men who still have dreams about Michelle Johnson on the beach.

The only one I saw on that list was Blame it on Rio.

Do Road Trip and the American Pie movies not belong in the genre? Is it because there is not enough nudity?

I see that, but a genre isn't defined by years, and Slash said that these movies were no longer made. I always figured these movies were in the same ballpark as the R-rated soft porn he was describing, so I'm curious to know.

Icarus, you will have a hard time finding a post 80's movie that is unashamed of its nudity.  Most modern movies seem to be sneaking it in and blushing.

80's nudie flicks were ABOUT the nudity.  Anything else that happened was just frosting.  There was a charming innocence to it that seems to be lacking today.

And who is the other Adrienne Barbeau fan?
I am not afraid.

So the nudity was the cake and the plot was the frosting? Or was the plot just frosting on top of more frosting?

There's a really nice hiney shot of Colin Farrell in Alexander.  He's leaning over and stepping into bed, so you get the full montey (so to speak).  Otherwise, I can't really recommend the movie, though there was a surprising amount of man love going on.

You know?  I am still a prude at heart I guess.  Whenever there is man nudity in a movie, I get all shocked.

:)

And man sausage.  I dislike the appearance of man sausage in a film.  It is astonishing the number of times Tim Robbins has displayed himself on film.  I don't ever need to see his weenie again.  I really don't.

I wonder if women feel that way about boobs?

Now Slash, we all know about the double standard.  All women are bi until the man shows up.

Would you not go to a movie if you knew that the only nudity was man meat?

It would have to be a fabulous movie.

I mean, the only nudity in T2 was man butt, but that movie was good enough that it was ok.

I dunno...there's man butt on Rush albums that I still like. But then again, seeing guys kiss and grind on each other at clubs that cater to both gay and straight people doesn't bother me too much, either. Well except when they get to the point that it's "get a room, guys". But it's worth seeing all that when the the very attractive lesbians who are dancing together start hitting on the girl you're dancing very close with...nothing ever happens with them after that, but it's still a huge turn on.

9 and 1/2 weeks wasn't really a skin flick. It was more of a seduction flick, with the focus on the mental part of the seduction. I think most  women probably find the movie super sexy, but the guys mostly think, "It's okay". I've had girlfriends reference the movie and say that it has their favorite strip scene by a woman.

The poll may have a strong male bias. :)
