Top 10 Memorable Movie Underwear Scenes


Why do things in your clothes, when you can do them in your underwear? Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 memorable movie underwear scenes!

For this list, we’ve looked at big screen scenes during which a character is underwear-clad, and we’ve ranked the most memorable, from the funny to the shocking. For a look at the sexiest scenes of this type, be sure to check out our other video called the Top 10 sexy movie underwear scenes!

#10: Mike Myers
“Wayne’s World” (1992)

We kick things off in especially ‘tighty whities’! Mike Myers is Wayne, and Wayne’s just woken up next to a beautiful woman - cue a bombardment of questions and some silly seduction. Cassandra is his conquest, and she’s providing all of the right answers. She’ll still love him through whatever stage of his prospective fame, but will she still love him after he’s belly-danced in front of her?? It’s an acute skill, it’s an acquired taste, and it’s underwear gold!

#9: Amanda Wyss
“A Nightmare on Elm Street” (1984)

A bed, a girl in her nightwear, and a lot of writhing around... Surely this scene should be hot? But, NO! As Tina, Amanda Wyss may appear the stuff of dreams, but she is in fact the victim of nightmares. Freddy Krueger chases her through a fearsomely fictitious world, and her boyfriend cannot help her, no matter how white his briefs are! Freddy has Tina right where he wants her - he knows how to make Wyss scream, but not in a good way!

#8: Cameron Diaz
“Charlie’s Angels” (2000)

Another dream, but this time a very good one! Cameron Diaz plays Natalie Cook, and she plays out an attention-grabbing dance-routine fantasy. When she swaps a subconscious ball-gown for real-life smalls and vest top though, that’s when this scene gets truly memorable! Diaz’s solo just edges out the Pussy Cat Doll-inspired group performance in the sequel, “Full Throttle”... It’s Rapid Eye Movement, but only because we don’t know where to look next! Appropriately soundtracked by Tavares, “heaven might be missing an angel,” but Charlie sure has his!

#7: Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman & Jerry O’Connell
Stand By Me (1986)

If bugs aren’t your thing, then look away now! For a scene to be memorable, it has to make us feel a whole lotta something... In this case, we feel a whole lotta squeamish! Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern are fighting in the river like all normal boys should do! Only, they’ve unknowingly taken their scuffle into leech-infested waters! The moment of realisation is both funny and frightening... The de-leeching chaos is a little toe-curling... And the parasite on the privates... Well, we’re not surprised he fainted!

#6: Will Ferrell
“Old School” (2003)

This actor is not exactly a stranger to showing some skin! In “Talladega Nights,” Ferrell famously stopped, dropped and rolled his way into his briefs, and fire is a theme in our next scene as well! In “Old School,” his friends have just executed a well-rehearsed routine - come-hither fingers included - and Ferrell must prove the ‘piece de resistance’! The acrobatics are near-perfect, but the finishing move nearly finishes him! In the locker-room afterwards he’s burnt up, pent up, but stripped down! Classic Will Ferrell!

#5: Renée Zellweger
“Bridget Jones’s Diary” (2001)

Movie sex scenes, we know the drill... Seductive chatter, steamy atmosphere, sexy underwear... Wait! As Bridget Jones, Renee Zellweger has us rethink that last part! Jones has just pulled her boss, who happens to be Hugh Grant, and the living room floor is as good a place as any to get down to business. Grant begins to undress his girl, and then finds her ‘absolutely enormous panties’. Sure, Bridget’s bloomers are more ergonomic than aesthetic, but she’s able to wield her ‘wanton goddess’ charm regardless!

#4: Sigourney Weaver
“Alien” (1979)

Where Renee Zellweger’s were massive, in our next scene, Sigourney Weaver’s are miniature! As Ripley in “Alien”, the actress captured the hearts and minds of all, and, here, the over-active imaginations of many! There’s an intergalactic apocalypse coming, but comfort is still a priority, and for Ripley that means wearing very little at all! As she meanders through her machines and switches, she must surely know that it’s more than a few monitors that she’s turning on?!

#3: Christian Bale
“American Psycho” (2000)

As unhappy and unhinged as the Bronze medal might make him, Christian Bale and Patrick Bateman deservedly step onto our panty-strewn podium! The “American Psycho”‘s morning routine is near-naked narcissism! Wearing only his whites, he applies a facial ice-pack before seeing to his six-pack. The stomach crunches and piano backdrop could almost be an advertisement for some kind of fitness center or yoga class - but Bale’s brutally concise narrative hints otherwise!

#2: Michael J. Fox
“Back to the Future” (1985)

Product placement has simply never been this pleasing! Michael J. Fox is the now-legendary Marty McFly, and he’s awakening from a dream that felt all too real... And that’s because it was(!), and it’s about to get weird! There isn’t too much that makes sense in this scene, at least not for Marty, but two things are certain - the color of his briefs, and the manufacturer of them! Calvin Klein must have near run-out of purple fabric upon “Back to the Future”’s release!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Christina Ricci
“Black Snake Moan” (2006)
- Ben Stiller
“Zoolander” (2001)
- Jean-Claude Van Damme
“Timecop” (1994)

#1: Tom Cruise
“Risky Business” (1983)

In keeping with the movie’s title, Tom Cruise gambled for our winning clip, but the risk paid off. A scene in the almost all-together is a difficult scene to pull off for any actor, but Cruise crushes all opposition undies with this often copied, never bettered, always funny dance routine! With “Old Time Rock and Roll” pumping out of the stereo, and an inspired rhythm pumping through his body, Cruise slips, slides and swings his way to number one - proving once and for all that less clothes equals more fun!
