10 Movies Men Love And Why
The Fifth Element
Starring: Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman, Chris Tucker
The Plot: A giant fireball named "Mr. Shadow" -- which is the manifestation of all evil -- is hurtling toward Earth and the only way to stop it is to arrange the four elements in a temple in Egypt, with the fifth element, love, placed in the center. Bruce Willis plays a former super soldier and current cab driver who becomes embroiled in the situation when a scantily clad supreme being falls through the roof of his flying taxi and maybe you should just look it up.
Why Guys Love It: "Die Hard" showed us that there's something really magical about seeing a wisecracking New Yorker take on international bad guys; "The Fifth Element" takes this idea up a notch, putting Bruce Willis in a different color tank top and pitting him against intergalactic evils. It was also one of the only PG-13 movies of its time to feature bare breasts, which made it a huge hit with prepubescent boys of the mid-90s. In addition to Milla Jovovich's boobs, Gary Oldman's portrayal of Zorg is equally arousing.
