Basic Instinct


When a wealthy rock star is found dead, police detective Nick Curran, played by Michael Douglas when he looked a little more youthful, suspects he was murdered by the seriously sexy and seductive crime writer Catherine Tramell (famously played by Sharon Stone at her sexiest). The film takes twists and turns as Curran tries to work out who the murderer really is.

This is the film with the famous leg crossing scene. You know the one - a small interrogation room, a distraction tactic, an uncrossing of the legs and a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ glimpse of a pantless Stone.

But that’s not the only sexy scene — there are plenty of sexual liaisons going on. There’s Catherine’s relationship with her lesbian lover, her sexual relationship with Nick, and his sex scenes with his counsellor. There really is something for everyone in this film.
