Crash (1996: James Spader, Rosanna Arquette) Ever get excited by the sight of a car accident? Uh, sexually, I mean. Well, that’s what this movie is all about. Yep, there’s nothing quite like kinky crashed car sex to get the pistons pounding and the engine racing. Dark. Disturbing. And dumb.

2 of 4

Parenthood (1989: Steve Martin, Mary Steenburgen) Karen Buckman (Steenburgen) offers stressed-out-by-work husband Gil (Martin) “something to help you relax” while they drive home from a family function. Surprise! The jump to the crashed Chrysler minivan is quick. Too quick.

Peggy Sue Got Married (1986: Nicholas Cage, Kathleen Turner) Peggy Sue (Turner) and future husband Charlie (Cage) talk dirty in a blue 1958 Chevy Impala. Turner’s a turn-on (“Does little Chuckie want to come out?”), but Cage is Pee-wee Herman creepy.

Titanic (1997: Leonardo Di Caprio, Kate Winslet) - Star-crossed lovers Kate and Leo steam up the windows of a 1912 Renault Type CB Coupe de Ville deep in the bowels of the “unsinkable” ship. Whatever floats your boat, it’s truly epic.
