The Movie: In Curtis Hanson's retro-noir thriller, L.A. is home to Hollywood stars...and prostitutes cut to look like Hollywood stars. But who can spot the difference?
The Awkward Moment: Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) angrily interrogates gangster Johnny Stompanato (Paolo Seganti) and his girlfriend (Brenda Bakke), who Exley assumes is a Lana Turner-lookalike whore.
Look Away When: "She is Lana Turner" - and the actress throws her drink in Exley's face.

I was waiting for the We Need To Talk About Kevin walk-in scene. Either of them in fact. Young Kevin walking in on Tilda Swinton making suggestive head movements beneath the sheets or, yet again, Tilda Swinton walking in on older Kevin having a tug. It's just awful, he doesn't even flinch once and stares at her all the while. Awkward. Very awkward.

I remember watching Swingers in the theatre and everyone yelling at the screen "Please don't call again!"

I believe you are forgetting a certain scene in Black Swan involving Natalie Portman enjoying herself under a blanket with a certain parental figure present.

Anyone remember The Grifters? Well, the scene where Anjelica Huston tries to seduce(?!?) her son played by John Cusack still makes me cringe. Brrrrr.....

No love for The King of Comedy? I'd say there's plenty of awkwardness going on there, especially the scene where Robert De Nero goes to Jerry Lewis's house uninvited with his girlfriend, who thinks they were invited there. But, yeah there's more than enough awkwardness in this whole list though - that Swingers scene really is painful

For #22 - Parenthood, Steve Martin didn't find his wife's joystick. He found his divorced sister's (Dianne Wiest).

It wasn't his wife's vibrator, but his sister's (Diane Weist).

What? THAT'S how World's Greatest Dad ends? I mean clearly it wasn't gonna be any good but jeez...I thought the kid actually died...it's weird, seeing as I met Daryl Sabara (the kid) when he was a lot younger.
