16. The Postman Always Rings Twice: the Kitchen Table

The Couple: Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange
The Scene: Jack Nicholson in one of the sexiest movie scenes ever? Seriously? Oh yes. He plays a drifter named Frank who brings pretty Cora Smith a delivery of sorts – right on her kitchen table, as a matter of fact.

What's So Sexy about It: What's not sexy about this scene? In addition to the roughness, the complete release of pent-up passions, it has to be the moment when Cora pushes all the dishes and everything off her table and challenges Frank to bring it.
