Nancy Callahan

Profession  Stripper
Played by  Jessica Alba
In  Sin City (2005)
We're not even sure that all the voters for Nancy even saw Sin City. The shot in the trailer, wherein she twists, in slow-motion, atop a bar in a skeezy dive while circling a lasso, was probably enough. You know, the bit where she's wearing chaps and tiny bikini bottoms and a studded black leather bra top (we're assuming it's black. It's hard to tell with black-and-white movies). The truth is that she's onscreen for, what, five minutes, but it was enough to earn her a high place on this list. In terms of sex appeal per second, she's probably the most potent force anywhere here.
Moment of hotness  That bit where she's gyrating in slow-motion atop a bar in a skeezy dive while circling a lasso, of course.
Ideal chat up line  "I have the deepest respect for you as a person and would like to get to know you better. Also, can you wear the chaps on our date?"
Any drawbacks?  She hangs around with very tough, scary individuals. Messing with her could result in more physical pain than you're willing to deal with.

4 Whaaaaaat!!!!!
Elizabeth Swan is one of the most underwhelming characters of that whole saga, not helped by a completely wooden peformance from Knightley herself. Give Gilda her rightful place in the top ten. Read More

Dont agree with most of them, Santanica Pandemonium and Jessica Rabbit yep but the others definately not. What about Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge? Read More

6 You forgot to hook up the doll
Firstly bravo Dirtyfunkymonkey, it's not just geeky it's cliched and outside of being a bit of fun, a real insult to women, Jessica Rabbit no2? and Lara Croft no1 there are clearly much more stronger and more seductive female characters in the filmiverse. Surely if your going to compile a list of masturbatory icons, why not include the Alpha Omega of them all, the hypothetical woman made felsh; Lisa from 'Weird Science' as played by Kelly LeBrock.

7 GEEKY!!
Jesus, how geeky was all that! Was this list compiled by a bunch of spotty teens or some guys who spend far too long w*nking over so called Sci-Fi babes whilst wondering what it would feel like to shag an alien... Come on guys, seriously. Where are the women. Kathleen Turner in Body Heat or Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction for example. Bo Derek in 10 perhaps?? But no. We get fucking Star Wars characters and blue aliens... Read More

9 Well said Tommypocket!
I agree with you. What about Maria Elena in Vickie Christina Barcelona, or Malena? Glad to see the sophisticated and beautiful Vesper though, proving that a few men have taste. Read More
