We're the Millers
In an attempt to free herself and her fake ''family'' from Mexican drug lords, professional stripper Rose O'Reilly (Jennifer Aniston) summons her pole skills, complete with a water-bottle-drenched homage to Flashdance, sultry sparks conveniently flying out of industrial equipment, and a leering oddball of a teenager who she's trying to pass off as her son. In short, the performance is delightfully cheeky (come on, people, when the jokes write themselves, only a fool resists!).

Saturday Night Live
The standard of Chippendales-inspired comedy — and we recapped the season of The Amazing Race when two performers named Ja(y)mes competed! Chris Farley's no-holds-barred portrayal of a rotund wannabe hunk who obliviously throws down with a washboard-abbed, rippling competitor (Patrick Swayze) remains one of the decadeslong series' most iconic sketches.

Martha MacIsaac's goody-two shoes Becca gets three sheets to the wind and lets her freak flag fly in a moment we all wish we didn't relate to. The teen dream girl ineptly unbuttons her schoolgirl shirt and sing-songs, ''Looky-looky, what ah got for youuuu undah here! '' — and never has a hopped-up-on-hormones high school boy (Michael Cera) been so unreceptive. And that's before Becca has to excuse herself to vomit on the side of the bed.

A whole lotta dance in a little bit o' man, Danny DeVito nailed his turn as a New Jersey stripper called in at the last minute to sex up the altogether-too-classy bridal shower for Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow). When his feelings are hurt by the ladies' rejection, the episode takes an unexpectedly heartwarming turn. As he shakes and slaps his booty to Sylvester's disco hit ''You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)'' (stopping only briefly to catch his breath), the cringe-inducing routine suddenly becomes a fist-pump-worthy victory.

As suppressed housewife Helen Tasker, Jamie Lee Curtis had to unleash her inner sex goddess during an ''undercover'' assignment for a spy agency. Extremely awkward until it's suddenly super-hot, Helen turns the comedic tables on her patron — in fact, her double-agent husband Harry (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who gets so hot-and-bothered by his wife's erotic dance that he drops a tape recorder he's using to disguise his voice.

Forces of Nature
Ben Holmes (Ben Affleck) is buttoned-up, but all we want him to do is get out of his button-down. Fortunately, free-spirited Sarah (Sandra Bullock) helps him get slinky to a song with lyrics including ''I'm a sexual animal, eat you like a cannibal.'' If that's not a recipe for comedy, what is?

Sex and the City
Hoping to spice up things in the bedroom with new boyfriend Berger (Ron Livingston), Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) gets soused and slips into a pair of furry sex-kitten heels. Shoes were generally good to Ms. Bradshaw during SATC's run, but somewhere between Carrie's tipsy tip-over and the point when she kicks the shoe into Berger's face, it was clear these pairs (both the footwear and the lover) just didn't fit.

Is Sandra Bullock the stripper whisperer? Another absurd set-up from the eventual Oscar whisperer, featuring a catcalling Betty White and Ramon (Oscar Nuñez) — a kitty-pawing, out-of-shape gyration artist from a remote Alaskan town — who's dubiously billed as ''the only exotic dancer on the island.''

America's Got Talent
Though she doesn't technically disrobe at any point, Lulu's squeak- and thud-filled AGT audition must rank amongst the worst exotic dances of all time. All (dis)credit to whichever production designer thought to give Lulu the wibbly-wobbly mobile pole on which she struts her stuff. Howie Mandel is positively rapt — and when it's the comedian in the room who can't peel his eyes away, you know you're probably not scoring points because of your sexiness.

A grand entrance that includes denouncing female bachelorette partygoers as ''breeders'' + the unfortunate slip of calling the bride-to-be ''pig face'' = comedy gold (and I'm not just talking about Andrew Ranells' lamé short-shorts).

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Safe to say no one was expecting ''The Carlton Dance'' to get saucy, including Carlton himself. But then there it was. Alfonso Ribeiro, who's a legitimately talented dancer, had no problem hamming it up and thrusting what his mama gave him. Too bad the actor's on-screen mama was in the cougartastic audience during the 1992 episode '' Strip-Tease for Two.'' Awkward!

Maybe it would have been less fontrum-y if Nomi (Elizabeth Berkley) had been wearing Ver-sace.
