There is no greater moment in a film than when you realize that a Hollywood actress is about to give some lucky dude a lap dance. There have been a number of great movie lap dance scenes over the years as well as some really bad ones. If you want to see some great ones, get a copy of these five films that feature some of the best lap dancing scenes in cinema history.
1.) Demi Moore in “Striptease”
No actress in history has spent more time trying to perfect the art of stripping than Demi Moore did for this role. She spent a year going to various strip clubs, spending countless hours with real exotic dancers to learn the ins and outs of the trade. The results really show up on film as Moore brings a stunning sexiness to her dancing. The only downside is that you have to watch a ridiculous-looking Burt Reynolds onscreen in order to enjoy Demi in all of her toned glory.
2.) Natalie Portman in “Closer”
Natalie Portman has that kind of girl-next-door cuteness that makes you think she could never be a bad girl. Well, anyone who has ever seen the film “Closer” knows that she can be an incredibly sexy lap dancer. Her moves are wonderful, and she will make any guy instantly rise to attention as she prances around the screen in a pink wig and hardly a stich of clothing. The scene where a lucky Clive Owen gets a private dance from Portman is one of the greatest moments ever captured on film.
3.) Vanessa Ferlito in “Death Proof”
Kurt Russell is one of the most iconic movie stars of his generation, and any guy would love to be in his shoes. The best time to be wearing those shoes would have to have been during the filming of Quentin Tarantino’s “Death Proof.” The scene where he gets a lap dance from Vanessa Ferlito’s character, Butterfly, is fantastic. Nobody but a genius like Tarantino would think to set a scene like this to a 50s song from The Coasters, but it really worked. When Ferlito grinds on Russell in those sexy booty shorts, it is a wonderful sight to behold.
4.) Jessica Biel in “Powder Blue”
Not many people have seen this film, which is too bad as it is rather entertaining. The highlight of the film is undoubtedly when you get to see Jessica Biel giving an outrageous private dance to Ray Liotta. She has always been known for having one of the fittest bodies in Hollywood, and she really shows it off in this scene. I’m sure it took Liotta several minutes after the director yelled, “Cut!” before he was able to stand up.
5.) Elizabeth Berkley in “Showgirls”
This was one of the most shocking films ever to be released by a Hollywood studio. The public outcry was massive when Elizabeth Berkley, who was previously known as squeaky clean Jessica Spano from the teen TV series, “Saved by the Bell,” gave a fully nude lap dance onscreen. While the movie itself is one of those films that is often considered to be so bad that it is almost comically good, the sexiness of Berkley cannot be denied. Her performance is one that you can watch over and over again.
