Entertainment Weekly loves its lists. The outlet has counted down the 100 Greatest Movie Moments, the 50 Smartest People in Hollywood and the 25 Most Controversial Movies Ever. So it's about time they created a list of the sexiest films, dontcha think?
glaadBLOG wanted to know how many of those sexy films included LGBT content, especially with a list whose top five all featured opposite-sex trysts in unusual locales, including a hotel lounge (Out of Sight), a newspaper office (His Girl Friday), a dance floor (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), a beachside bar (Body Heat) and on a baseball field (Bull Durham).
But a hot kiss shared between best friends in a Mexico Hotel lead the gay pack of sexy movies, with Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001) coming in at number seven. According to EW, "A drunken, boisterous celebration escalates into a sensuous threeway. As [Ana Lopez] Mercado heads south of the border, the guys unexpectedly -- and passionately -- kiss." Ay caramba!
Mulholland Drive (2001) is ranked 17, because of the heat generated between stars Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring. Basically the whole movie is sexy, regardless of its enigmatic storyline.
The 18th sexiest movie is Swimming Pool (2003). Sarah (Charlotte Rampling) fantasizes about voluptuous Julie (Ludivine Sagnier), which isn't too much of a stretch, being as Julie's either naked or mostly naked throughout the film.
Coming in at number 21 is Basic Instinct (1992). Love it or hate it, Sharon Stone plays a hyper-sexual bad girl. The sexiest moment? EW says it best: "Duh. The interrogation."
Number 29 is the Wachowski brothers' Bound (1996). Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon. 'Nuf said.
Following Bound is Maurice (1987), ranked number 30. Maurice (James WiIlby) and Clive (Hugh Grant) play Cambridge school mates in 1910 whose relationship blossoms into a romance for the ages.
Cruel Intentions (1999) is ranked 32 specifically because "Vixenish Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) coaxes doe-eyed Cecile (Selma Blair) to kiss her. Their lips part to reveal a strand of saliva that lingers as they pull away. Drool never looked so enticing."
The 39th sexiest movie is The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999). "Anthony Minghella's film is infused with old-world luster and sultry jazz, but when Tom [Matt Damon] and Dickie [Jude Law] play a simple game of chess -- over a bathtub, with Law naked inside -- every move is an advance and a rebuff."
Number 47: Kissing Jessica Stein (2002). "Hoping to get lucky, two lunkheads approach the ladies at a restaurant and proceed to extol the virtues of girl-on-girl action -- all while Helen [Heather Juergensen] secretly fondles Jessica's [Jennifer Westfeldt] thigh under the table." Check please!
Yossi & Jagger (2003) comes in at number 49. Described as "a less tormented version of Brokeback Mountain's Jack and Ennis," the main characters -- two Israeli soldiers -- keep their coupling a secret. The sexiest moment, you ask? "The guys go at it, fully clothed, on a snowy hillside. Because we see mostly close-ups of their faces as they make out, joke, and laugh, what's sexy is their sweet delight in one another."
Is it getting hot in here?
