8. Tie: Monet Mazur as Shaen and Jaime Pressly as China in Torque
We emphasize our opening paragraph Grinch statement when referring to the movie “Torque,” but when it comes to two hot women having a high-speed cat fight aboard a couple sportbikes, “Torque” owns the scene. It’s good vs. evil, blonde vs. brunette, Mountain Dew vs. Pepsi product placement in this motorcycle battle royale.
Both Mazur and Pressly had to attend a motorcycle riding school prior to filming “Torque.” “I wish I could say I got the part because of my expert motorcycle skills,” said Mazur in an interview, “but unfortunately they were nil. I had to learn everything.”
It doesn’t seem as though either girl lives a biker life outside the unrealistic world of “Torque,” but apparently Mazur came away with a new perspective about women motorcyclists. “After I started riding I would always look when I’d see bikers and see if it was a girl or a guy, and if it was a girl, the way they were riding, what they were wearing. It’s awesome whenever I see girls riding choppers.”
If you’ve never seen “Torque,” use the embedded clip and judge for yourself if the movie’s worth seeing in its entirety. If this helps you decide, neither Mazur nor Pressly get naked in this PG-13 flick.
