(Editor's Note: This story was recently updated in 2012 so go check out 10 More Great Netflix 'Watch Instantly' Movies With Gratutious Female Nudity) So, as you may have heard, Netflix) has gone gangbusters (like grilled cheese sandwiches but not adult entertainment) since the economy has gone belly-up. Basically, dudes who once checked the stocks like it was their jobs are now spending their days feverishly rearranging Netflix queues. It's all good, though, because nothing spells escapism like R A M B O). As much as we love getting precious envelopes filled with DVDs from Netflix in the mail, we also totally dig the new "Watch Instantly" feature. Instant gratification at its finest.
That said, if you're trained in the art of Netflixing, you're probably aware that you can't stream all available movies via the "Watch Instantly" feature. You can watch a sizeable chunk of \`em (there's 8,000 and Netflix keeps adding more and more weekly) but not the whole shebang. This kinda sucks, but whatever -- Rome wasn't built in a day. The brilliant thing about "Watch Instantly" is that if a movie sucks, you can turn it off and move on without having to wait for another to come in the mail or feeling guilty about throwing $4.99 down the john like with On-Demand. Also key: if it's T&A you're after, it couldn't be easier to find it. Since Netflix doesn't host a search engine that will pull up movies with "nip slips" and there's a whole lot of crud out there, we've done the research for you and compiled a list: 10 Great Netflix "Watch Instantly" Movies With Gratuitous Female Nudity. You'll see the list is a bit eclectic (blame it on film school) and, hey, we like a little plot once and a while, too. Enjoy and, please, if you've got a recommendation, spread the good word.
"Body Snatchers" (1993) Uber-bro Abel Ferrara's remake of the creepy classic features "Scent of a Woman" star Gabrielle Anwar as a hot chick who moves to a depressing military base for the summer with her family. Then aliens take over and the shit hits the fan. Towards the end of the film when a whole lot of body snatching is going down, a whole lot of disrobing goes down, too. Hate to give spoil, but thank heavens Gabby gets her body snatched because this allows us a view of the actress in the buff. The movie co-stars Meg Tilly (sis of Jennifer). Meg is in two memorable scenes: The first is her delivery of the famous "Where you gonna go, where gonna run, where you gonna hide?" monologue. Better yet is when she startles a young child by emerging from a closet buck-ass nekked.
"Wild Things" (1998) This classic requires little explanation. Before Denise Richards went the way of the Sheen, she played sexed-up teen socialite Kelly Van Ryan in this swampy thriller. We recommend watching the whole thing but if you gotta pick two scenes, may we suggested the three-way with Neve Campbell and Matt Dillon and the infamous girl-on-girl throw-down/make-out swimming pool scene.
"Swimming Pool" (2003) On the topic of swimming pools, this entertaining art-house hit co-stars French tart Ludivine Sagnier and her breasts. We'll leave it at that.
"Boarding Gate" (2007) This kinda confusing but cool-looking (it was filmed in Hong Kong and Paris) thriller is one of those flicks you probably glanced at at the video store but passed right up. Netflix "Watch Instantly" is all about second chances so here it is: Intense, heavily-tattooed Italian hottie Asia Argento stars as a smoldering ex-prostitute who gets mixed up in some shady business and winds up on the run and in various states of undress.
"9 1/2 Weeks" (1986) This is one of those flicks Dad had taped off of Showtime and hid in an unmarked case behind all the recordings of your high school basketball games and reruns of Gunsmoke in the family "entertainment center." It stars a non-boxing Mikey Rourke and the former Mrs. Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, as lovers who have a lot of kinky sex. We dig the NYC-in-the-'80s vibe but the real star is Ms. Basinger who frequently takes it all off and really lays some of our food phobias to rest in the infamous kitchen scene.
"Private Resort" (1985) There are plenty of more-recent Spring Break-y sex comedies to be found on "Watch Instantly" but we're partial to this set-in-Miami piece of 1980s comedy gold starring Johnny Depp and Rob Marrow. There are plenty of babes, bikinis, and hijinks throughout, but it's hard to miss curvy adulteress Leslie Easterbrook (AKA Callahan from the Police Academy movies) and her sheer nightgown. Keep one eye on Easterbrook and another eye on the lookout for an appearance by Andrew Dice Clay.
"Eyes Wide Shut" (1999) We loved Stanley Kubrick's last film but it does tend to drag. And we mean drag. "Watch Instantly" makes skipping to the totally sexy/scary masked orgy scene a bit easier. Make sure to turn the sound off if you want to avoid nightmares.
"Chained Heat II" (1993) This one is so very, very bad that it's good. The threadbare plot involves a bevy of nubile young ladies locked behind bars (and taking a whole lot of er*tic showers) in a Czech ladies' jail. It stars Flava of the Month Bridgette Nielson as an evil, coke-snorting prison warden. Says Joe Bob Briggs of Ms. Nielson's tour de force performance: "Her hair is cropped, her abs are toned, her thunder thighs are rippling beneath her Dacron bodystocking, and she has this mean whiskey-voiced laugh that begs to be slapped by her sadistic lesbo lover."
"H.O.T.S." (1979) This entry is kind of like Animal House minus any actual laughs plus a lot more co-ed T&A. Three highlights: Danny Bonaduce, the cheesy/smokin' hot tub scene, and the topl*ss football game at the end. Go team!
"Sizzle Beach, USA" (1975) This Troma (The Toxic Avenger) production from the '70s stars a before-he-was-Kevin-Costner Kevin Costner as a ranch hand who spends most of his days bedding bare-chested ladies who spend most of their days at the beach and in swimming pools. A midget pimp also makes an appearance. It's pretty terrible but like all Troma flicks, that's the point.
