1. PHOEBE CATES IN FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH (1982)It’s about as literal a wet dream as one man could ever have: using the mind’s eye to watch Phoebe Cates emerge from a pool in slow-motion, decked out in a teeny-weenie red bikini with hair soaking wet and a look of “take me now” in her eyes. Twenty-nine years later, no pool scene has come close to touching this one.
For Judge Reinhold’s character, the dream becomes a nightmare once reality Cates barges in on him yanking his chain to the poolside fantasy. Fortunately for dudes in our world, there are things known as the “fourth wall” and the Pause and Rewind buttons, meaning that “take me now” stare can remain forever and there’s no way she’ll ever catch us in the act. By which we mean drooling, of course. Get your mind out of the gutter.
