There is perhaps no greater testament to still being in love in your golden oldies like the dynamic Norman (Fonda) and Ethel (Hepburn) had in 'On Golden Pond.' Plus has there ever been a sweeter term of endearment than, "You old poop"?

While charming, retired astronaut Garrett (Nicholson, who makes a few more appearances on this list) may have had his eye on younger women, they were no match for his brassy, tough-as-nails neighbor Aurora (MacLaine) in 'Terms of Endearment'. They may have been closer in age to his usual conquests, but the couple couldn't have been more different. Probably why they made for such a wonderful, sexy pair.

Lin Shaye's excessively tanned Magda lip locks with her pooch Puffy, but it's her hookup with old local fisherman Freddie that had us all screaming with disbelief. Especially when he admits he only got it on with Magda to get close to the oft-coveted Mary (Cameron Diaz).

Much like her fellow cocktail-fiend Magda, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) wasn't going to let age get in the way of her fun. When she wasn't making terrible, offensive puns during their terrible, offensive trip to Abu Dhabi, a menopausal Sam was trying to keep her libido up by taking hormone pills and dress as scandalously as possible.

Making for one of the most talked-about nude scenes in movie history, Kathy Bates dared to go bare in front of Jack Nicholson in the dramedy 'About Schmidt'. So what if they didn't exactly put the hot in hot tub, you've gotta give her major credit for being so damn fearless at any age.

Jack's back! Never mind how creepy it was how these two wound up together (he dated her daughter — ew!) when serial bachelor Harry (Nicholson) and uptight Erica (Keaton) hooked up it was so good they both burst into tears during post-coital bliss.

When snowmobiling sex kitten Ariel (Ann-Margret) rolled into John (Lemon) and Max (Walter Matthau)'s lives, they really had nothing to be grumpy about. Well, aside from the fact that they both wanted her. While Ariel kept them both warm, it was John who won her heart. Don't feel too bad for Max though, he got to shack up with Sophia Loren in the sequel.

There's so many wonderful things about this underrated 2007 family drama, but the adorable senior community romance between Ella (MacLaine) and her suitor Lewis (Adler) is maybe the most wonderful. When reunited sisters Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette squeal over the kiss Lewis plants on Ella on the dance floor, we couldn't help but do it, too.
