Conservative Trope Examples

  • Bad Teacher (2011)
    Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) leads a car wash fundraiser dressed in clothing definitely not suitable for a teacher interacting with middle school students. With a rock ballad playing in the background she proceeds to "wash" a sports car, but intentionally washes herself as much as the car itself. All the dads, middle-school boys and even a police officer couldn't help but stare at Ms. Halsey, with the police officer even crashing into a number of cars before driving away.
  • One Night at McCool's (2001)
    Liv Tyler, wearing a tight purple dress that doesn't leave much for the imagination, purposefully sprays herself with a hose, rubs her body all over the car, and suggestively squeezes the soapy suds from the sponge all over her as John Goodman creepily gawks at her from a distance.
  • Bring It On (2000)
    The high school cheerleading team at Rancho Carne High School hosts a car wash to raise money for their squad. All the girls on the team dressed in their most comfortable beach attire and spent as much time fooling around and soaking each other as they did washing the cars.
  • Wild Things (1998)
    Neve Campbell and Denise Richards wash their high school teacher Matt Dillon's jeep for a fundraiser with the camera focused more on their legs than the car. They get into a water fight at some point where their bras become visible through their wet white t-shirts as they stand facing their teacher as he comes to pay.
