Panties are a very important part of our society, whether one chooses to wear them or not. Many films have taken note of the power of a pair of panties, or lack thereof, which has made for some very sexy, funny, and even frightening movie moments. This is a list of some of the most creative and memorable uses of panties in film, and it's really amazing what kind of power such a tiny piece of fabric can have:
Originally Sigourney Weaver was going to be nude during the last sequence of the film to show just how vulnerable her character really was, but that didn't fly with the production company. However, after seeing a badass Ripley outsmart the aliens and manage to stay alive when the rest of her crew couldn't, seeing her battle the alien in a very flimsy tank top and a tiny pair of panties still reminded you that she was only a woman and made for one of the most climatic scenes in sci-fi film history.
Sixteen Candles (1984)
Any geek during the 80's would have loved to have in their possession a pair of Molly Ringwald's panties. John Hughes' teen films always took less of a gross-out, oversexed approach at comedy, and the scene where the geek holds the pair of polka dot panties over his head in front of a gawking group of guys in the bathroom is one of the greatest in teen filmdom. What always got me about the film is that Sam gives the geek her panties, then goes the whole night wearing a flimsy dress and acting as if she never took them off, and she doesn't realize they are gone until the next morning (which kind of makes her freak out.) I guess she just got too excited and forgot they were gone. Anyway, it's definitely one of the most memorable scenes involving panties in a film, and you can even buy a shirt that quotes the film: "I can't believe I gave my panties to a GEEK!"
