Hundreds of artists, film critics and producers took part in a survey about the sexiest movies in history. Based on their personal lists, a final ranking was compiled of the 25 tapes that were most often mentioned in the survey.
The first place was taken by the film “Out of Sight” (1998). The main roles in this thriller were played by George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. This film occupies a special place in the filmographies of both artists. The rating compilers called this picture a “cinematic aphrodisiac.” At the same time, they noted that thanks to director Steven Soderbergh, a number of scenes from this film are included in the so-called Sexy Film Hall of Fame.
Out of Sight follows polite thief Jack Foley as he commits yet another bank robbery. But at the same time, as always, he is amiable, charming and elegant, which does not at all fit the stereotype of a robber. However, the next robbery turns out to be a failure – his car simply wouldn’t start, so he couldn’t leave the crime scene. In prison, the main character makes the necessary connections and soon escapes with a couple of other prisoners. At the same time, he takes hostage the beautiful Karen Sisko, who is a federal marshal. Their mutual sexual tension soon develops into flirting.
Second place in the ranking was taken by the classic 1940 film “His Girlfriend is Friday.” Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell played a newspaper editor and journalist, his ex-wife. The editor wants to keep his beloved with all his might. According to those surveyed, the sexual innuendo in this film set the standards for on-screen erotica for decades to come.
And the third was the action melodrama “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” (2005) with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. This story is about a killer couple who are forced to hide their true profession from each other. Sexual tension in this picture is tightly intertwined with fights, and eroticism is inseparable from violence.
