MY FATHER THE HERO (1994): 14-year-old Katherine Heigl in a Thong

In the movie My Father the Hero (1994), which was adapted from the French version of the film, Mon père, ce héros (1991), 14-year-old Nicole (Katherine Heigl) has an insatiable desire for the older men at a Bahamian resort. In an effort to attain the affection of the ephebophiles, Nicole attempts to make them jealous by pretending that her approximately 45-year-old father is her lover. 

If the plot was not shocking enough, as you'll see in the clip below, the 14-year-old Heigl appeared in the film in a very revealing white thong, which unsurprisingly caused a backlash in the media.

  1. I vaguely remember the hooplah over this. Heigl recently commented on how this couldn't be made today. That hasn't stopped netflix from streaming it. In Retrospect it's the best thing she's done.

    1. "In Retrospect it's the best thing she's done." Lol!

      And maybe it doesn't have to be made today. One can see nymphets in (cheecky) thongs on beaches around the world...

      Thanks for the comments...

    2. Thank Goodness. "One can see nymphets in (cheecky) thongs on beaches around the world..."

    3. Yes, times have changed. Just recently there was an entry in New York magazine's Approval Matrix mentioning the 70 year anniversary of the bikini.
