One Night Stands - The Top Ten List

I often enjoy the Top ten Lists that The Vine magazine produces... and I often quote them here on my blog... this month, they have compiled a list of the 'Top 10 One Night Stands In Movies'.

According to the Vine:

"It is that most dangerous of combinations between copious amounts of alcohol and lascivious carnal desires that culminates in the explosion of unbridled passion that is the one night stand. One of the most cherished social traditions has a long and florid history on the big screen perfectly capturing the horniness, awkwardness, joy and guilt associated with doing the wild thing with a complete stranger.

Movies have showed us how great (remember Jeff Daniels in Something Wild?), and how badly (remember Leonardo Di Caprio in Titanic?), things can work out. One thing’s for sure, we can all agree it seemed like a good idea at the time.

We have compiled our top ten one night stands in movies. May they serve as a reminder of all the good and bad that comes with trysts of the one time variety. Warning: some clips may not be suitable for work. "

10. Something Wild (1986)
Remember when Melanie Griffith was hot?

9. Species (1995)
Even though the guy had his skull crushed and did it with a hot alien intent on bringing about the end of civilisation, I’m sure he has no regrets.

8. One Night Stand (1997)
Wesley Snipes displays considerable action chops in this underrated tale of infidelity and secrecy.

7. Indecent Proposal (1993)
What is it about Demi Moore and one night stands? I would argue getting paid one million dollars for a one night stand is more prostitution than anything else, but I guess that plotline wouldn’t be as romantic.

6. Fatal Attraction (1987)
Glenn Close was really not worth the entire bunny boiling hassles.

5. Derailed (2005)
Jennifer Anniston has the worst luck…

4. Knocked Up (2007)
How did the incredibly hot Katherine Heigl ever end up with Seth Rogen! Also did anyone else think it was weird that for such a graphic film she never took her bra off during the love making?

3. Titanic (1998)
Cautionary tale ladies and gents, one night stands on a boat will ultimately lead to someone dying.

2. About Last Night (1986)
Lowe and Moore just can’t seem to get it right, one night stand “brat pack” style.

1. Terminator (1984)
Humanity was saved thanks to this one night stand. It doesn’t get much better than this.
