Added DiffLines:

* During the Amazon celebration in ''Film/FrankensteinIsland'', Dino's gaze (and the camera) are firmly fixed on the hips and butt of one of the girls as she dances.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheBurning'': As the girls of Camp Stonewater play baseball, Eddy and Dave (as well as the camera) take a good look at the bikini-clad behind of Karen.

Added DiffLines:

*Basically in every film by Seltzer and Friedberg, the women in the film are always a [[MsFanservice Ms. Fanservice]]. In ''Film/EpicMovie'', almost every girl is shot to show off their curves, large asses, huge breasts, and overall gorgeous figures. The main one being Mystique, who's played by the stunning Carmen Electra, who's practically naked through the entire film, with her only two scenes being a sexy dance scene and a sex scene involving her getting [[BreastExpansion larger breasts]] and a larger ass, which we see in full. Granted, that sex scene also has her receiving a unibrow and [[ChubbyChaser "big flabby grandma arms/bingo wings like a fat blue Britney Spears"]], but still, the entire film is shot around sexy ladies whenever they are on screen.


** Played straight in few instances though, like when Baby is changing in the back of Johnny’s car and while he gets [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted watching her in the rear view mirror]]. Also while practicing lifts in the lake, Baby’s top gets noticeably [[SexySoakedShirt we and see through]].

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' as The Wives are extremely beautiful, skimpy dressed, at one point hose themselves down and Splendid in particular gets a SexyWalk as the camera zooms in on her curves... and her pregnant bump. While it’s quite sensual just thinking about it crosses over into {{Squick}} as she along with the other Wives are [[SexSlave Sex Slaves]] who have been impregnated by the BigBad Immortan Joe.

*** Not to mention the scene prior to this where Happy is driving her to Hammer's office and she begins changing in the backseat. The viewers are treated her taking off her shirt exposing her bra....nearly causing Happy to crash the car because he was DistractedByTheSexy. She quickly comments that he should keep his eyes on the road and the poor bastard makes an epically heroic attempt to do so, even after the audience is treated to one lone leg rise up.

* Played with in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'', in the scene where Vernon is frantically driving the truck and trying to see what April is doing. The camera pans over to reveal her grabbing video footage with her phone by leaning out of the window with her behind right in the camera. Vernon is fine with this, but [[DistractedByTheSexy taking his eye off the road causes them to crash]].

* The camera in ''Film/OnceUponATimeInHollywood'' absolutely loves Sharon Tate (played by ''Creator/MargotRobbie''). Whether she is [[Main/BareYourMidriff raising her arms dancing]], or just walking down the street in a very short mini-skirt such that [[Main/ShesGotLegs the bottom of the skirt is at the top of the screen]], or a long scene with [[Creator/QuentinTarantino the director's]] favorite body part dominating the shot, the movie is a definitive study in male gaze.

Added DiffLines:

* In the 1923 silent film ''Film/LaRoue'', the main character is tormented by [[PervertDad his attraction to his adopted daughter]]. While she's [[SwingLowSweetHarriet swinging]], the shots from his POV are close-ups of her legs.


* ''Film/TheSentinel'' and ''Film/HarshTimes'' were both released around the same time, and both featured Eva Longoria, and both had a shot where the camera focuses on her butt. In both cases it was to emphasize how the men in the scene see her. In both cases the director was also a male.

** Played straight with Santanico Pandemonium's snake dance however, she's played by Creator/SalmaHayek too.


-->'''Tony''': Who is she?
-->'''Pepper''': She is from legal, and she is potentially a very expensive sexual harassment lawsuit if you keep ogling her like that."

Added DiffLines:

*** To be fair Pepper completely lampshades this trope in the most DeadpanSnarker way.
