Sexy cinema: Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney in a scene from 'Out of Sight' voted the sexiest film of all time
Made in 1998 and based on Elmore Leonard's novel, the judges said the combination of its two leads created the ultimate 'cinematic aphrodisiac'.
They added: 'It made Clooney a major star and gave J-Lo her most well-rounded role to date. And thanks to director Steven Soderbergh, it features a number of scenes that belong in a sexy cinema hall of fame.'
Groundbreaking: The 1940 film His Girl Friday, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell, came second in the list, its subtle innuendoes set a standard
Third place: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr and Mrs Smith which sparked their real life romance
In second place was the 1940 film His Girl Friday, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell.
The experts said the film's subtle innuendoes set the standard for the future of erotic cinema.
They said its sexiest moment was when newspaper editor Grant asks Russell, a reporter: 'Want my fingerprints?' Russell drawls: 'No thanks, I've still got those.'
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's 2005 film, Mr and Mrs Smith, which sparked their real-life romance, was voted third, with the sexiest moment when the couple pat one another down on the dancefloor while 'angry, aroused and armed to the teeth'.
British actor Daniel Day-Lewis has three films in the top 50, The Last of the Mohicans (8), The Age of Innocence (23), and The Unbearable Lightness of Being (34).
