Maid in Manhatten
This movie deserved an Oscar, period! One of the finest plots you’ll come across, this timeless classic is indeed what ‘just love’ looks like. Starring Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Finesse in lead roles, the movie is loosely based on a true story of a Senatorial candidate falling for a hotel maid, thinking she was a socialite when he saw her having on a wealthy woman’s dress.
This movie is as steamy as it can get. An adaptation of the novel – 365 dni by Blanka Lipińska, the movie revolves around Massimo from the Sicilian Mafia family and Laura, a sales director. Little did she know that a trip to Sicily would upturn her world. As she tries to save her relationship with another guy, Massimo kidnaps her and gives her exactly 365 days to fall in love with him.
Mind you, the movie scores a raunchy 18 rating, and when we say steamy, we mean steamy. Enjoy!
Two Weeks Notice

An absolute classic, the plot spotlights Lucy – a lawyer who grows tired of her handsome and super-rich boss George Wade treating her like a nursemaid, so she decides to quit. As Lucy’s time at the company nears an end, she grows jealous of June (her replacement) and has second thoughts about leaving George.
