->''"Looking at the ladies, all of them fine\\
All of them so lovely I can't make up my mind\\
But I'm looking at you from the corner of my eye\\
I can see you now, you're stepping so high!"''
-->-- Slave, "Watching You"

Two (or more, or not so many) men look at a bunch of women and discuss them. Or vice versa. An old, old trope, but given that guys do this every day, likely to continue till mankind goes extinct [[LadyLand or at least until men do]].

{{Supertrope}} of OutdoorBathPeeping and ThePeepingTom.

The common subversion is to make it look like guys are girlwatching, only to reveal that the "exquisite curves" they were talking about referred to something non-sexual, like a pizza, a car, or a rare Brancusi arm chair.


* An ad for... [[DistractedByTheShiny toothpaste, or something]], had a bunch of nursing home residents admiring the new arrival. "Are those real?" "Yup. They're her own teeth."
* A famous SuperBowl ad had two boys looking at Creator/CindyCrawford and admiring the shape of... the can of Pepsi she's drinking.
** AmbiguouslyGay or dangerously thirsty?
*** Or had they not hit puberty yet?
*** All highly unlikely (especially the first option), since Cindy has stated that in reality the "can" the two boys were interested in was not of the Pepsi variety.
* GenderFlip in the "11 o'clock" Diet Coke ads.

* One of the RunningGags in ''Manga/InuYasha''; both [[CelibateHero InuYasha]] and [[ChivalrousPervert Miroku]] have gotten some really good looks at Kagome and Sango while bathing. The difference is that [=InuYasha=] tries to be a good boy whereas Miroku is incorrigible, and our good boy's efforts to deter his peeping usually result in him ending up an AccidentalPervert; cue [[PervertRevengeMode "sit" command and boomerang bashing]].
* Kazuharu Fukuyama from ''Manga/GirlsBravo'' is the ''master'' of this trope, as well as the unwelcome grope.
* In the [[strike:BeachEpisode]] swimming pool episode of ''Anime/MaiHime'', the girls complain that the boys do this all the time. And the boys are in fact doing this, shown discussing Natsuki's appearance seconds later.
* In ''Anime/WelcomeToTheNHK'', the main character does this...except that the girls he's staring at [[OhCrap are preteens.]] (He is fully aware of this.)
* In ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'', the activities king's [[MassiveNumberedSiblings 9 children]] were being constantly tracked by surveillance cameras and aired on TV so as to prepare for the upcoming [[ElectiveMonarchy royal election]]. However, it seemed quite a bit of the commoners used the chance to girl-watch the several teenage princesses on {{imageboard|s}}-like fansites.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* An issue of ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' (third volume) featured Guy Gardner taking Kyle Rayner and John Stewart out for a little bit of girl-watching.
* [[Franchise/ArchieComics Archie]] often did this lots of times.

* The movie ''Film/{{Mash}}'' had them discuss whether Hot Lips was a real blonde or not. So they decided to find out...naturally bets were placed on the issue
* The opening of the film ''Film/GregorysGirl''
* This leads to the discovery of the Nash equilibrium in ''Film/ABeautifulMind'', although as pointed out by ''WebComic/{{XKCD}}'', it's not a true equilibrium.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* ''Series/MadMen'' -- through a one-way mirror. Joan is aware of their presence and bends over in a tight skirt. The men decide that is worthy of a salute.
* In a ''Series/ChappellesShow'' sketch (making fun of the movie ''What Women Want'') about a woman who hears men's thoughts, she enters an elevator full of men. HilarityEnsues. It's actually pretty hilarious, though. At one point, even a little boy is heard thinking about how hard he would hit that.
* Once the telescope was installed in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'s'' apartment, everyone got to use this gag. One notable variation was when Frasier and Niles tell Martin to calm down, 'cause they're admiring a foreign range/stovetop, not a naked woman. Martin says that he knows, and ''that's'' the disappointing thing.
* Seeing as how it takes place in the offices of a fashion magazine, the male characters of ''Series/JustShootMe'' indulged in this pastime often, much to the dismay of [[StrawFeminist Maya]]. In one episode Jack catches the guys looking at a blonde woman bent over and joins in. To his horror it turns out to be Maya (his daughter), who had dyed her hair.
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', where Arthur and Lancelot are talking about... different girls.
** [[LoveTriangle For now...]]
* {{Inverted}} on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', where Barney and Ted appear to be talking about his architectural sketch, but are actually discussing a nude picture of Princess Leia.
* ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'': They're ''really'' talking about the new motorcycles, although based on their tone Cam briefly worries they're doing something illegal.
* There's a ''Series/TwentyOneJumpStreet'' episode with a group of frat boys watching (and rating) girls.

* Jeff Blumenkrantz's duet "Moving Right Along" (a CutSong from ''Fits and Starts'') is about two guys in a gay bar checking out and dismissing the clientele. (''"Too square". "Too fair". "Too self-aware... moving right along..."'')
* "Music to Watch Girls By" by Andy Williams. (''"Eyes watch girls walk, with tender loving care..."'')
* "I'm a Girl Watcher", by the O'Kaysions
* "Pretty Girls Everywhere" by Eugene Church
* "Girls, Girls, Girls" by the Coasters (covered by Elvis in the film of the same name)
* "Watching Girls Go By" by Ronnie [=McDowell=].
* "Peaches" by Music/TheStranglers.

* In ''Theatre/TheMostHappyFella'', Herman and his three pals watch the local girls strolling by in "Standing on the Corner" (made famous by The Four Lads).

[[folder: Web Original ]]
* Gavin does this on his own while talking to a camera in the ''WebVideo/KateModern'' episode [[http://www.lg15.com/katemodern/?p=34 "Birdwatching"]]. "I'm just brushing up on my ornithology!"

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* GenderFlip: In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Lois and Meg Griffin fight about who gets to look through the peephole at a showering Tom Brady. Only to be interrupted by [[TransparentCloset Stewie]].
* Bender in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' and his frat house climbed up the ladder to watch a desktop computer being used by a bunch of girls in their underwear. The robots were ogling the computer.
