Unrealistic Movie Scene (Basic Instinct Edition)

In Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone beat a murder rap by exposing her vagina to the guy who played Newman...and yet, that's nowhere near the most unrealistic scene in that incredibly dated film.

Nope. Not even close.

The most unrealistic scene in the movie is when Sharon Stone (whose character probably has a name) uses an ice pick and a giant block of ice as a way of creating miniature ice blocks to place in boozy drinks for herself and Michael Douglas. Hear me out...

Remember, Sharon Stone's character was rich. She was a well-known author living in a freaking palace. And it was 1992! Why in the hell was she still using an ice pick? Ever heard of an ice-maker? Or even ice trays? Nothing about using an ice pick appears even remotely convenient, and unless she can use an ice pick to make Wendy's-style ice cubes (or Rally's), which I doubt, I can't find a good reason for a rich person in 1992 using an ice pick.


I can't find a good video of the scene in question, but it does appear at the 1:19 mark of the trailer. Enjoy:

Exposed vagina or not, this movie is stupid.
