Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Brangelina all started here. As John and Jane Smith, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie play a husband and wife whose double lives as top-secret (and top-notch) assassins are revealed when they're hired to kill each other. Butt-kicking, spy intrigue, explosions and crazy hot sex ensue.

True Lies

Long before he was governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was working for the U.S. government as agent Harry Tasker in its counter-terrorism unit. When his "day job" as a dull computer salesman pushes his wife, Helen (Jamie Lee Curtis), to an affair, Harry uses his intelligence job perks to show her he's not as boring as he seems.

True Romance

Just your classic tale of "Boy meets girl. Boy kills girl's pimp. Boy accidentally takes pimp's cocaine. Mobsters chase boy and girl." While Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette don't play the most skilled outlaws around, you'd be cold not to fall in love with their vibrant, sizzling chemistry.

The Bourne Identity

Who needs a memory when you can romance Franka Potente? Matt Damon's amnesiac operative Jason Bourne takes Potente's Marie Kreutz for a high-octane, bullet-flying, black-hair-dying ride after bribing her to help him escape authorities.

Speed

OK, so Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock spend most of the movie on a bus, but how hot was it when they slide out of it, cradling each other?

Out of Sight

If you want a crash course in sexual tension, check out George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez's slow-burning tango. It all starts in the opening scene when his bank robber, Jack Foley, and her U.S. Marshal, Karen Sisco, are locked in a trunk together. Personal space is overrated.

The Thomas Crown Affair

The delicious cat-and-mouse game betwen Pierce Brosnan's billionaire art thief and Rene Russo's sassy insurance investigator culminates in one of the sexiest romps captured on celluloid.
