Time to Take a Dip

So, summer begins tomorrow and what better way to beat the heat then to find a nice cool body of water to slip into. Not a lake, though. Lakes can be filled with all sorts of things like alligators, piranha, mer-people, or a masked killer lurking around. And don't get me started on the ocean. You couldn't pay me enough to go in there what with the sharks, giant squids, krakens, and randy dolphins. No, my water of choice is a nice, clean pool. Here are the best movie pool moments.

FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH

One of the greatest nude scenes in movie history featuring the gorgeous Phoebe Cates removing her top
in slow-motion.

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN

Beware a vampire scorned. It's in and around a pool that Eli takes care of her friend's vicious tormentors.


WILD THINGS

Cat fight between Neve Campbell and Denise Richards suddenly turns into something much different and oh so better.

CADDYSHACK

Pool excavated and drained all because of a candy bar?

BACK TO SCHOOL

Rodney Dangerfield does the Triple Lindy to win the dive meet. Dangerfield himself actually did the dive. No, really.

COCOON

It's in a pool where all those old folks get younger and friskier.

THE
SANDLOT


Fake drowning leads to real making out with hot lifeguard.

RUSHMORE

Bored, annoyed Herman Blume, chucks golf balls into his pool and then jumps in with a cigarette in his mouth.

TOMMY BOY

Richard gets caught spying on a skinny dipper.

VACATION

Clark Griswold gets to frolic sans clothes with two hotties, supermodel Christie Brinkley and then Beverly D'Angelo.

SHOWGIRLS

Violent and ridiculous sex in Zack's pool. Good thing for the chlorine.

FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF

After cavorting all over Chicago, Ferris, Sloane, and a stunned Cameron retreat to
a nice pool.

SWIMMING POOL

A mystery writer, staying at her publisher's vacation home, encounters his often nude daughter.

PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE

Sure, it's actually Francis' bathtub, but it's certainly the size of a pool and it's there that he and Pee-Wee have an epic underwater battle.

THE GRADUATE

Benjamin spends a lot of time drifting on a raft in his pool which I think is supposed to symbolize his drifting through life, or something like that.

MACHETE

Machete gets down with a mother and daughter.

SPECIES

Sil fools around with, then kills a dude in his own pool.

One "Pool" movie not here is The SWIMMER, starring Burt Lancaster. He goes on a cross-country trip by swimming through friends and neighbor's pools. It souds like a dumb premise, but it was quite a remarkable piece of film work at the time, and one of Lancaster's sigature works.

Tim Josephs
Born to write (literally much to the displeasure of his mother, he emerged with a pencil clutched in one tiny fist), Tim spends most of his days crafting epic monosyllabic poems, new comical titles to his favorite Beatles' songs (Hey, Dude), and angry letters to local businesses that have wronged him in some way. He's really an okay guy once you get to know him.
