To Top

Fifty Shades of Grey dominated the box office this weekend. No big surprise, considering the mega-success of the book and its Valentines Day tie-in. However, it’s getting some lukewarm reception from critics and viewers who felt the chemistry was lacking between the lead stars. There may be some graphic sex scenes, but it’s otherwise rather boring, flat, even unintentionally comical. If you really want to get swept away with some cinematic steaminess, here are 10 films fifty times hotter than Fifty Shades of Grey.

1. 9 1/2 Weeks

This 1986 erotic drama had Mickey Rourke (back when he was a looker) introducing Kim Basinger to the world of sex games, role play and, um, food fun. Like Fifty Shades, it’s all about pushing boundaries, but John and Elizabeth had more smouldering chemistry than Anastasia and Christian did.
