Six films that featured sexy people and not much else

SOME films are lucky enough to have a hot cast as well as a gripping plot line, but not these ones. Enjoy the eye candy, because there’s nothing else of value here.

Don’t Worry Darling (2022)

The promise of heartthrob Harry Styles got the teenage girls along for this one, even if the film was a bloated, derivative mess that only the biggest One Direction fan could approve of. But add in Florence Pugh, Olivia Wilde, Chris Pine and Gemma Chan, and you’ve got something that looks good on a poster, if absolutely nothing else.

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

There are hundreds of forgettable 90s slasher films but at least this one had Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jennifer Love-Hewitt in the lead roles, plus Ryan Philippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. for the ladies. What more could you ask for from a film? Except maybe a cohesive script and some genuine tension.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

Alicia Vikander? Gorgeous. Henry Cavill? Hunky. Armie Hammer, pre-cannibalism accusations? Fit. It was utterly shite and you forgot the entire plot the moment you left the cinema, but at least Guy Ritchie skipped his usual ugly gangster Vinnie Jones-type casting so there was something decent to fantasise about when you got home.

Mr and Mrs Smith (2005)

Can you remember anything that happens in this sexy thriller? Not a second of it. But it will always be known as the film where both stars were so undeniably hot side-by-side that they simply had to get together in real life, much to Jennifer Aniston’s chagrin.

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

Kudos to you if you remember this pointlessly gritty 2016 box office bomb, which turns the fun story of a man raised by monkeys into a jungle-based eco-thriller. The one saving grace? It featured Margot Robbie and a six-packed Alexander Skarsgard. Which almost made it worth it. Almost.

Showgirls (1995)

This terrible film has earned a camp cult-following in recent years and part of the appeal is that the cast is exceedingly attractive, while the acting, story and dialogue pushes it into the ‘so bad it’s good’ category. Even that abominable pool sex scene is somewhat saved by the fact that, yes, those are great boobs.

Why didn't you pretend they were protesting women, Braverman asks police

SUELLA Braverman has quizzed the Met as to why they did not treat pro-Palestinian protesters like women, it has emerged.

After failing to pin a protester who chanted ‘jihad’ to the ground, the furious Home Secretary has asked police why they did not act like they were dealing with a peaceful, candlelit vigil.

Braverman said: “You know what to do if you’re ever in doubt about using force. This is basic shit.

“Instead of standing around and wringing your hands, you mentally picture a woman in her early twenties holding a placard and press a boot to her face. I shouldn’t have to tell you this.

“You seemed to have this technique down pat when you were crushing student protests a couple of years ago, so what gives? There’s a place for hatred and violence on Britain’s streets, and you guys are it.

“I dread to ask, but did you at least all share bigoted comments and disgusting jokes in a WhatsApp group? Don’t tell me your standards have slipped so far as to neglect that.”

Met chief Sir Mark Rowley said: “The government’s done everything to make protests illegal and as easy to forcibly terminate as possible so this really is our bad. Sorry everyone, we promise to do better next time.”
