The Greatest Sex Around Part 10 . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Monday, October 15, 2007

{This is the tenth in a semi-regular series of posts regarding great cinematic sex scenes as defined by me. This is completely arbitrary and open for interpretation, but so is life.}

"Sideways" is an excellent movie about friendship and wine as well as the chaos which ensues when you mix the two together during a bachelor party weekend.

The sex scene which earned a place among the cinematic elite, however, is not the taut, silicone-enhanced variety which occurs during most bachelor parties, but instead, features a pair of individuals who are best seen in low-lighting.

This rendevous occurs near the end of the film as Thomas Hayden Church begs Paul Giammati to retrieve his wallet, an item which he left inside the house of a large, married waitress after her even larger husband came home early to discover the pair in a comprimising position.

Following this romantic break-up, Giamatti sneaks inside the house to hear the bed creaking as the husband and wife are mating like wild porpoises and talking dirty to each other.

This seems like a very reality-based scene, and I won't ruin it completely for anyone who hasn't seen this film. Let's just say that things get far funnier and visually unappealing from there.

The elements of a foot race, thievery, pale skin and full frontal male nudity are involved, and the combination of elements makes for a hilarious scene that ranks among the truly elite.



  1. I watched that film at a friends cottage. The bottle of wine we had was finished pretty quickly and I fell asleep about 15 to 20 minutes in. Now I might go back and watch this movie, sobre.

  2. Heff Says:
  3. I'll stick with the silicone enhanced well lit scenes, thank you.

  4. Miss Ash Says:
  5. I saw that film at the theatre and was crying I was laughing so hard at the .. well you know .. part.

  6. WhatIgot - The vine makes sense with the movie for sure, but I'd stay awake for the full running time during yr. next go-around. It's worth it.

    Heff - Then I would go with "Very Bad Things" as Kobe Tai fits that mold very, very well.

    Miss Ash - I have an idea about the part, but I want to hear you say it. Ha. That scene was pretty damn funny, especially from the visual and flopping angle.

  7. That was one of those scenes I watched through my hands over my eyes - it was hysterical and horrible at the same time. I also liked Sandra Oh clobbering TH Church.

  9. I guess I'll have to rent it too. I really dislike Sandra Oh though so I hope it's worth it.

  10. Anonymous Boxer - A good description, and I found that Sandra Oh scene to be painful to watch. I kept wanting to tell Church to cover his face because that helmet did some damage.

    Nobich - I think it's definitely worth a rental, but it is a slow-moving movie that is more of a dramedy than a comedy (if that makes any sense). Enjoy w/ some wine.

  11. H.Wood Says:
  12. I can't watch the naked fat dude in other flicks or on Lost without being reminded of those scenes.

  13. JLee Says:
  14. I don't know if I would say "GREATEST sex around" haha Perhaps graphic? I did love this movie although it was slow in parts. In fact, I need to rent it and watch it again because I've forgotten some things. Thanks for refreshing my memory of this scene. *shudder*

  15. H. Wood - Ha. Yeah, that's a fairly good barometer for other flicks & even TV shows (a la Hurley). It's a hell of a visual.

    Jlee - In this case, yes, graphic would likely be a better word. But you can admit, you only want to re-watch because of this scene. Ha. It's OK Jlee.

  16. nobich Says:
  17. So we're saying I should be totally wasted watching this movie? ok no problem!!

  18. Gina Says:
  19. I totally loved the movie. The hubby, he always seems to find it on cable so we can watch it again and again! lolol

  20. Linda Says:
  21. This is one of the funniest scenes on film! Not only as a sex scene, but a crazy chase scene as well. Naked or not, that big dude was pretty scary ... (hairy?!?) Good post!

  22. Nobich - That certainly seems to be a theme, but only have enough vino to ehance your enjoyment and not so much that you fall asleep. Ha.

    Gina - I own this one on DVD, and also read the book. Surprisingly enough, the movie was better than the book, which I rarely find to be the case. I mean, who doesn't love the "I'm not drinking any fucking Merlot" line? Ha.

    Linda - Thanks, and you're right about the chase as you are just praying the Giammati will make it to the car and get it started. Just a phenomenal scene in a stellar film.

  23. Grace Says:
  24. I think I'll pick it up next time I'm at the video store. I never say no to full frontal male nudity. Ooops, did I just say that out loud?

  25. Ha. Yes, I think you forgot to filter that one, but beware as this is not a pretty site. You've been warned.
