Despite the craptacular showing from Hollywood lately, there are already some pretty awesome movies out there, each with a special dose of The Sexy and The Hot and The Heavy, just waiting to be enjoyed.
One of our favorites is Secretary with James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal. We found it romantic that those two Sickie Sickingtons (the characters, not the actors themselves, although I have my doubts about those two anyway) found each other and made one another happy in their own twisted way. Not everyone agrees as to the romanticness/sexyness of the closing scenes, but I thought it was really sweet and sexy. I do know that others find it disturbing, though. In fact, one of my friends had such an argument with her husband over it that he spent the night on the couch! She should have just spanked him and peed on his chair.
Boogie Nights was obviously pretty sexy, being about the porn industry. One scene that stands out for us though was the one where Dirk Diggler and Amber Waves get it on while filming the only official “porn scene” in the movie. That was actually kind of sweet… she was trying to help him and he was trying to do a good job and… That was great. Plus it was Marky Mark!
Brokeback Mountain was another one! The scene in the tent. You know the one. Gay, straight, doesn’t matter! ’nuff said.
And what would this list be without mentioning Dirty Dancing? There’s no question that the ending scene where Johnny tells Baby’s jerkwad dad that “nobody puts Baby in the corner” and then he takes her hand and they dance like never before and Baby finally does that fucking lift and then they run off together is pretty awesome, but our absolute favorite scene is the one where they’re in the studio for Baby’s “dancing lessons” and they’re crawling toward each other on the floor. Very hot…
Waitress with Keri Russell was kind of awesome, too.
We can’t forget 9 1/2 Weeks, can we? We’ve never been one for food and sex, but Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke make it look all kinds of fun. And that dance she does to “You Can Leave Your Hat On?” it’s kind of nice if you like long leggy blonds doing a striptease in various bits of menswear and stuff. Plus this is back when Mickey looked normal.
And this list would be revoked if we didn’t include Unfaithful. Pretty much all of it.
Another suggested scene is the car scene from Titanic. You know the one where the windows are all steamy and a hand comes up and slowly rolls back down? Yes, that was a good one and really hot.
Another one is the scene between Marisa Tomei and Philip Seymore Hoffman in Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. The scene is…. Um… we’d call that a big YES.
