Street Fighter (1994)
Street Fighter the movie meant well. Reinventing Ken and Ryu as con artists made them infinitely more interesting than Ken and Ryu the wandering, motiveless fighters from the game. Still, fans hated the plot departures, and the film was mostly panned by critics—but it hardly matters. In 2012, there’s basically just one thing you need to know about Street Fighter: this is the movie that got Jean-Claude Van Damme and Kylie Minogue to get it on. When questioned during his Expendables 2 press tour about whether he had an affair with Minogue while filming Street Fighter, Van Damme answered, “Sometimes you let go of stuff ... I don't know, maybe. Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair. Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking. It would be abnormal not to have had an affair, she's so beautiful and she was there in front of me every day with a beautiful smile, simpático, so charming, she wasn't acting like a big star. I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She's a great lady.” Magical.
