Monday Movies Meme- Some Like It Hot

This week’s movie topic is all about Steamy Love Scenes…

This weekend in Boston a heat wave arrived. Usually the only things this hot here in April come from a steamy love scene. You know the kinds I’m talking about – where the screen just sizzles with passion and you would be embarrassed to watch it with your parents. Sometimes they are key to the plot development, and other times you know the director just threw it in there to be “titillating.” (ha ha) Hopefully this warm weather spell will stick around for a while, but just in case here are some steamy scenes that came to mind should we need them to warm up. What ones have fogged up your screen?

Here are my choices-

Body Heat (1981) William Hurt & Kathleen Turner

Mulholland Drive (2001) Naomi Watts & Laura Herring

Fatal Attraction (1987) Michael Douglas & Glenn Close

Unfaithful (2002) Oliver Martinez & Diane Lane

A History of Violence (2005) Viggo Mortensen & Maria Bello

and if you like Diane Lane and Viggo Mortensen a sweeter, hotter love scene  – A Walk on the Moon (1999)

So what do you think?  Did I miss a good one?
