Looking to celebrate the season and get in the mood? A Christmas Carol can be a little gloomy, and not everyone is turned on by the Tim Allen Christmas filmography. Use these scenes to help plan for a romantic date and stay warm and cozy on a frosty December night. You’ll be roasting chestnuts on an open fire with that special someone in no time.
Buddy the Elf’s Shower-Time Duet - Elf
Zooey Deschanel has one of the sultriest singing voices out there, and like everyone else, she sounds even better in the shower. With her siren song, she lures Will Ferrell’s Buddy the Elf into the ladies’ locker-room, trouble be damned. What man could resist that voice? The song choice — “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is one of the flirtiest pop standards ever — sweetens the steamy moment even more.
“A Kiss Can Be Deadlier If You Mean It” - Batman Returns
Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman epitomizes dangerous femininity. You too would ignore the ice-cold temperatures and rampant crime of Gotham City if those leather-clad hands and that tongue were running along your body. This scene is a good reminder that your best weapon for getting what you want this Christmas isn’t a whip or a bat-a-rang… it’s a sprig of mistletoe.
The Lamp - A Christmas Story
The only thing that can take little Ralphie’s mind off of an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle is this award won by his old man. Unable to resist running his hands up and down the “soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window,” Ralphie takes every chance he can to gaze at the work of art. If he gets any closer to it, he might shoot his eye out.
The Plastics’ Winter Talent Show Performance - Mean Girls
Teenaged leather-clad Santas are an uncommon fetish, but the Plastics make you feel it, spotlighting a barely legal Lindsay Lohan at her sexual zenith. You can’t take your eyes off of her, and you feel a little bit dirty about it. The performance is so alluring that no one in that auditorium can resist singing along (except for maybe LiLo’s shocked father).
Edward Finally Gets to Hold Kim - Edward Scissorhands
Christmas should be spent with the people you love, no matter the cost. All poor Edward’s ever wanted is the chance to feel something, and being unable to touch the woman he loves keeps him in silent agony. Luckily, Winona Ryder gives him exactly what he wants for Christmas; Edward finally gets to experience the thrill of being wrapped up in someone else’s body.
Bill Nighy’s “Christmas is All Around” - Love Actually
Nighy’s Billy Mack promises that if his new single reaches the top of the British pop charts, he’ll perform the song on national television — totally naked. And sure enough, the entire kingdom unites to see him drop trou. Can you blame them? Aping a little bit of Robert Palmer, Nighy oozes dirty charm.
The Pool-side Daydream - National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Spending the holidays with all those relatives takes a toll on old Clark Griswold. He takes a few private moments to imagine a far-off summer day, with no family. Just him and that lingerie saleswoman. Mele Kalikimaka!
George Bailey stays in Bedford Falls for Mary - It’s a Wonderful Life
Mary wants to be with George, but he doesn’t know how to make it work. Finally, hearing her flirt with Sam Wainwright is enough to drive him to her; he kisses her with every ounce of passion he has. Jimmy Stewart needed only one take to deliver one of the most powerful kisses in film history.
