10 ridiculously silly movie orgasms: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Biggs & more

13 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

‘American Sniper’s Bradley Cooper On Less Is More, And Other Lessons Learned From Eastwood, De Niro And David O

11 February 2015 1:28 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive Q&A: It arrived too late to factor in guild and critics awards, but the Clint Eastwood-directed American Sniper has established such a connection with American movie audiences that its dark horse chances of upsetting the Oscar status quo cannot be ignored. It passed Saving Private Ryan to become the highest domestic grossing war movie ever; it even shot past the U.S. gross of Bradley Cooper’s previous biggest hit, The Hangover, and trails only The Passion Of The Christ for biggest-ever R-rated domestic grosser. This, for a hard R film about the wartime exploits and horrors faced by the most dangerous sniper in U.S. military history, and the price paid by Chris Kyle, wife Taya, and his fellow soldiers tasked with door to door searches in Sadr City when it was the most dangerous place in Iraq.

Robert Duvall, This Is Your Year

8 January 2015 4:18 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It takes more than a village to make an award-worthy performance--it takes a million tiny moments that together create a film or TV show more magical than its parts. This week, ETonline talks with Golden Globe nominees about all the big and small ways stars have to align for a great idea to make it to the screen.

For his most recent role as the stern Joseph Palmer in The Judge, veteran actor Robert Duvall was honored with the Icon Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Backstage, he spoke to ETonline about his Hollywood legacy -- which spans a half century -- and how his new movie compares to Apocalypse Now, for which he won his first Golden Globe.

ETonline: What appealed to you about this part?
