The Greatest Sex Around Part 11 . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Tuesday, November 13, 2007

{This is the eleventh 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.}

The words Billy Bob Thornton and tremendous sex scene aren't usually compatible, however, when you add Halle Berry into that mix, then you have enough sexual firepower to catapult their tryst in "Monster's Ball" into the all-time sex scene Hall of Fame.

The movie itself is a well-made, semi-depressing look at families, racism, and other heavy topics. But ignoring those worthy issues for a moment, it also features Thornton and Berry in a raw and somewhat controversial sex scene that provides ample heat to the screen.

The encounter occurs after Thornton realizes that he knew Berry's husband (I won't reveal how). They are sitting on the couch at his house, and then the action begins with clothes being ripped off as a long, fierce scene erupts that finds Berry asking him to "make me feel good."

The good feelings go on for quite awhile, and the audience is rewarded with a coupling that showcases Berry in all her glory as Thornton has the sense to leave plenty of unobstructed views.

While it's true that Berry could make a sex scene with a phone book look pretty terrific, it's the heat quotient in her time with Thornton which earns them a place among the cinematic elite.



  1. Heff Says:
  2. You mean there was a PLOT in that movie ? lol.

  3. Does she ever utter the line "You've got monster balls," during the scene?

    Other than that, I don't have anything useful to comment on.

  4. Heff - I'm sure there was, but it's murky in my mind except for this scene. Ha.

    WhatIgot - That would have been a good one, although it might have broken the mood as who could keep a straight face after hearing that one? Not me. But still . . .

  5. Miss Ash Says:
  6. Finally one i've seen!!! I agree it is quite the tryst...even if it has a man named Billy Bob in it.

  7. Okay, so are you saying that if Halle Barry is fondling your nards, you'd lose the mood if she said you had monster balls?

  8. Miss Ash - (Hands clapping). That is excellent news as I knew it was only a matter of time. Ha. And you're right as most great sexual interludes don't involve a participant named Billy Bob.

    WhatIgot - No, but momentarily I might laugh and that would throw me off - briefly. This is not a deal killer situation like yr. music one from this past Friday. No way.

  9. JLee Says:
  10. I do remember this scene being quite real/raw which gave it a lot of intensity. Although Billy Bob is not really that attractive, there is a sexuality about him that is somewhat appealing (except in "Slingblade" lol)

  11. I missed this movie. Boo. But I do know how he knew her husband, which doesn't help at all.... but that's all I got.

  12. Jlee - I don't know what you're talking about Jlee - as Karl in Slingblade, Billy Bob radiated sexiness. Ha.

    Anonymous Boxer - You see a lot of good movies, and this is probably worth it to see what Berry won her Oscar for as it's a solid flick.

  14. What, Billy Boob was in that scene?
    I never noticed.

    Did I say boob?

  16. ugh....left a msg and I got a "cannot understand what you are doing" from the blog god. maybe my comment was too racy? anyhoo....we'll see if this goes through??

  17. Idobcool - That's an understandlbe slip there, and yes, Billy was in the scene but he had the grace and foresight to allow the focus to be squarely on Berry.

    Vivavavoom - The Blog God is arbitrary, inconsistent and tempermental, and I appreciate the effort. But now I wonder what your original comment was. Ha.
