I'm surprised at the omission of Last Tango in Paris. I haven't seen the film, but I thought the sex scene is the only reason it's famous.

It's a pretty wacky list... Team America?

My favorite sex scene would probably be the one in "In America". What other film could have a sex scene with nudity and keep a PG-13 rating because it's done so artfully? Snubbed!
