In the new thriller "Stoker," there's a scene involving Mia Wasikowska playing piano with her uncle, played by Matthew Goode. During this incredibly sophisticated duet he puts his arm around her back to play some keys at a higher octave, and they both start breathing heavily…
That's right, it's a sex scene with NO SEX!
This is not an innovative conceit, though, since we have nine other examples of this titillating tactic on display for your viewing pleasure. It's all of the hanky with none of the panky.

Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect. Get More »
Admit it. You've had relationships that turned into horror shows. The screaming, the crying, the panic, the knife-wielding ... well, we can only take this metaphor so far.
'Tis the season for horror, romance and comic hijinks in equal measure. Love a good scare? In honor of Halloween, we've reimagined six romantic comedies as outright horror movies — courtesy of our friend Old Red Jalopy. Get More »
"I don't want to freak you out, but 'Silence of the Lambs' is my favorite movie. 'When Harry Met Sally' is probably my other favorite movie. I think those two tie. My best friend Juliet and I have probably watched it together like thirty times. Every time we're at my house hanging out, even if we're just playing Scrabble, we probably have it on in the background.
"I know they're two very different movies, but I always loved Jodie Foster growing up because she had gone to Yale, she was very bright, she spoke French, all of that. Even before I thought I wanted to be an actor. I always had a thing for her. I was so impressed with her.
"And then that movie was the first that ever scared me in the psychological sense. Plus, I was just enchanted by Anthony Hopkins. I don't know, I just always thought that Jodie Foster was something pretty amazing."

For centuries, music, art and poetry have revered the human body, but no one did it quite like rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot in his classic 1992 hit "Baby Got Back." Now, 20 years later, the song gets the cinematic treatment in a new video that features 295 movies singing the lyrics to everyone's favorite ode to the derriere.
Many of your movie favorites express their booty adoration in this video by dondrapersayswhat, including the horny "American Pie" crew, seemingly straight-laced Atticus Finch from "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Sally Albright from "When Harry Met Sally...," letting out her famous groan, of course.
Check out the video below, and see if it makes you appreciate the song — and the backside — anymore than you already do. Get More »

Ephron died in a New York City hospital after a long battle with leukemia, according to The Hollywood Reporter. News of Ephron's passing away follows reports from earlier this afternoon that she was gravely ill and almost certainly in her final hours. Get More »
Relationships can turn us into self-involved, sentimental wrecks. But throw on a good romantic comedy and suddenly it's tough to take yourself too seriously. With life back in perspective, you laugh away your tears and regain the certainty that love will conquer all.
Well, unless you're a guy.
Men seem more immune to the mirror these movies hold up, perhaps because they rarely see themselves reflected. It's the infrequent film that makes a guy nod his head and say "Yup, that's me in love. Aren't I silly?"
The best thing about our list of the nine greatest karaoke scenes in movies? That the scenes we've chosen are not only fun to watch, but they can also provide helpful hints to real-world karaoke singers (even those who happen to be movie stars).

I Love You" and the deliciously over-the-top performance of our number one pick, these are some movie karaoke moments that might just inspire you to rock the mic yourself. Get More »
How do you improve on Rob Reiner's 1989 romantic comedy classic "When Harry Met Sally?" The same way you improve every other movie: add vampires and zombies.
So goes the thinking in Billy Crystal's hilarious, high-profile short film for Funny or Die. With Reiner and Crystal playing themselves, the duo pitches a sequel to Adam Scott -- playing a smarmy Hollywood d-bag as only he can -- that presupposes Sally's death and how Harry can find love again. The d-bags love it, with one minor (read: major) tweak. Enter Helen Mirren and her vampiric fangs. Get More »
The new comedy "Take Me Home Tonight" celebrates the 1980s and all its excesses, from Mercedes-worship to Frankie Goes To Hollywood telling us all to relax.
The '80s was a time of rampant materialism and mohawks, and the only way people got through it -- like WWII -- was with laughter.
In honor of Topher Grace's nostalgic comedy, we're celebrating the 25 most-uniquely only-in-the-80's comedies, the ones where the hair was froofy, Eddie Murphy still brought the funny, and the geek inherited the Earth. Get More »
