10 Best Bad Girl Movies

Monday, March 7 by Anarch

Fans of dangerous women will want to check out this list of the ten best bad girl movies. What makes a bad girl movie the best? How about sexy women with big guns? Or maybe you prefer the more sinister type of dangerous girl that could kill with a smoldering glance? Whatever your poison, you will want to grab the popcorn and check out some of these best bad girl movies.

  1. Angelina Jolie in "Wanted" 2008. Face it, Angelina Jolie is just about everyone's favorite bad girl and the 2008 film, "Wanted" is no exception.  Showing James McAvoy's novice gun-for-hire the ropes, Angelina looks tough and fondles plenty of guns in this great thriller.
  2. Melanie Griffith in "Something Wild" 1986. Melanie Griffith used to be quite a little pistol. "Something Wild" was one of the best bad girl movies because "Lulu" had this cute quality to her, but she was a troublemaker from the get-go.
  3. Drew Barrymore in "Poison Ivy" 1992. One of the best bad girl movies about a really bad seed is the 1992 thriller "Poison Ivy." Barrymore is hot and dangerous in the role of Ivy, a teenage strumpet who puts the moves on her new friend's father.
  4. Sharon Stone in "Basic Instinct" 1992. Few men can forget the leg-crossing scene in this movie as wealthy writer Catherine Trammel is investigated for murder. Since few can resist the thoughts of a gorgeous blond bisexual Sharon Stone, this is a must-have on the list of the ten best bad girl movies.
  5. Honor Blackman in "Goldfinger" (1964). This movie may not have started out as one of the best bad girl movies, but with a villian named Pussy Galore, you had to realize where this is heading. While James Bond will always be the hero, Pussy Galore will live on in infamy… for rather obvious reasons.
  6. Lucy Liu in "Kill Bill, Vol.1" (2003). Before she became one of "Charlie's Angels," Lucy Liu played the part of O-Ren Ishii, a half-Chinese and half-Japanese Yakuza boss. Cold, calculating and armed with a katana, most will agree that "Kill Bill" has earned it's place as one of the best bad girl movies of all time.
  7. Juliette Lewis in "Natural Born Killers" (1994). You don't see many movies about female serial killers, but after teaming up with the demented Mickey (played by Woody Harrelson), Mallory Knox proves she has what it takes to make one of the best bad girl movies by leaving a trail of bodies the length of Route 666.
  8. Michelle Pfeiffer in "Batman Returns" (1992). Michelle Pfeiffer is "purr-fect" as feline bad girl Catwoman/Selina Kyle in "Batman Returns." While this movie isn't focused entirely on this slinky sex-kitten, she is memorable enough to earn this film a spot in the ten best bad girl movies of all time.
  9. Anne Parillaud in "La Femme Nikita" (1990). Granted, while she might turn out to be not-so-bad in the end, throughout the movie, the beautiful Nikita (a former junkie who is now trained as an assassin) definitely racks up a body count (and looks very sexy doing so).
  10. Natasha Henstridge in "Species" (1995). She's blonde, she's stacked, she's homicidal and she's horny, what's not to love? Sil is a beautiful alien experiment with reproduction on her mind and, cheesy as that may sound, this sci-fi/horror film is well-deserving of a place on the list of the ten best bad girl movies.
