10 Great Pool Scenes in Movies

The Graduate

There are loads of “scene enhancers” out there that we kind of take for granted or almost don’t even realize are going on.  By simply putting a group in a nightclub it might do something to a scene.  By simply adding the effect of rain it might elicit a completely different emotional response than a sunny day.    These obvious yet smart effects in a movie can be the difference maker in certain scenes.

The “prop” I will focus on today will be the pool.  A pool can be great for just about anything.  Putting a terd in one.  Having a guy do a funny dive in one.  Using the water for sex appeal.  It’s almost endless.  Bottom line?  Pools are awesome.

And here’s a look at 10 great pool scenes in movies

“I am a Golden God” – Almost Famous

“I’m on drugs!”

Caddyshack Employee Pool Day

Kenny Loggins is the man.  How awesome was his music back in the 80s?   Seriously does it get any better than that?

So somber yet so good.  What a classic.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Anyone who doesn’t know or love this scene deserves to be shot.  Not so fast!  Of course we can’t show it all here but you get the idea.

Wild Things Kissing Scene (A little NSFW)

This might be one of the best scenes in any movie ever.

Alligator – Eaten Alive in the Pool

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1H08zAaRjY

I had to throw something dumb like this in there.

Marilyn Monroe Something’s Got to Give

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sZjmWicmA4

Classic.  This is when people were questioning Monroe’s body.  Uh, questions answered.   “Come on in!  The water’s so refreshing!”

Meet the Parents Volleyball Scene

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_QsCaSxfKE

It’s a shame that girl actually passed away in real life.  Bot I’ll never forget the first time I saw this movie.  Every scene was awesome and this one is no exception.

National Lampoons Vacation

This is Crazy!  This is Crazy!  This is Crazy!

The Triply Lindy – Back to School

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDMMYT3vkTk&feature=player_embedded

You can’t have a list like this without the Triple Lindy!
