The Best Movie Kisses of All Time

Updated on January 29, 2015

Big Kisses on the Big Screen

Here you will find some of the best movie kisses of all time. I will not be presumptuous enough to put them into some ranked system, because it is far too subjective - the movies are too different, and the kisses are too different. They cannot be properly compared.The movie kisses included are what I believe are the "best of the best".

This is a list which is obviously always growing. If you think of one I have forgotten (or would like to dispute one I have included) visit the guestbook at the bottom of the page.

Song: Kiss Me by Six Pence None The Richer

Ghost - Patrick Swayze - Demi Moore - Kiss

This kiss was actually not effective for me. I have put it on the list by popular demand. I actually laughed through this scene, but to each his own.

Finally kissing in public after so much falling in love in private.

What makes it great? - What is it about the kiss?

What is it that makes a kiss in a movie great? Is it the actual kiss or the characters that do the kissing?

What is it that makes a kiss in a movie great? Is it the actual kiss or the characters that do the kissing?

It's the kiss.

It's the kiss.

      it is the kiss

    • AmyLOrr 3 years ago

      Its everything, the kiss, the characters,the setting, the music they play over the top...

    • Susan Holland 3 years ago from Southwest Missouri

      Tough one... Both... The feeling the characters put in before the kiss make the kiss.

    • SavioC 4 years ago

      The way its shot, the music in the background, the lighting ....the works . Its always the combination of these that makes a great kiss.

    • SBPI Inc 4 years ago

      This really looks like a lot of fun. hmm

      Guess I'd better start looking again? LOL

    • lawyer-marketing 4 years ago

      I like dirty dancing.

    • LUMOSE 4 years ago

      Passion

    • Socialpro54 LM 4 years ago

      I think it is both

    • Salsa Dancing 4 years ago

      Rain, usually

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      the knight

    • internetsuc6 4 years ago

      I think it is both... The kiss and the characters.. seeing two beautiful people kiss makes it a better kiss

    • Malu Couttolenc 4 years ago

      It is the kiss and the scene. It has to be a very romantic scene, not those in which they just kiis with no romance involved

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      okay so both!! sometime the kiss itself is sexy ....but lets admit it...the people who do the kissing are also sexy! which makes it more fun to watch and makes it more memorable

    • Dominique84 4 years ago

      I say its actually the music playing in the background

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      It's everything, the build up, the kiss, the characters and backstory, but it's ALSO the actors themselves. I have seen too many movie kisses ruined by actors who don't know how to do it correctly.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      It's when the kiss is so intense and passionate that they could be at a concert with blaring music and they wouldn't notice anything but each other.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      it's the kiss, the characters, the scene. the story itself.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      the moment before they start to kiss. :D

    • Gregory Moore 4 years ago from Louisville, KY

      It is the suspense leading up to the kiss!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      It's a great kiss, when it makes you long to be one of them, at that very moment. So, it's the kiss, AND the characters I believe. (In the video montage, the kiss where the gentleman starts the kiss at the ladies eye, then works his way to her lips, THAT IS A KISS!)

    • healthimage 4 years ago

      Its the outward projection of passion that's put into the kiss that makes it feel real and powerful!

    • webfunbook 4 years ago

      agree with ethelsmith...this is the chemistry between the couples.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      The chemistry between the couple

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      when it looks real although is fake

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      neither. it's how hot the follow up sex scene is. :)

    • TheChefsWife 4 years ago

      I say both! But if I have to choose between the two options, it's the kiss. :)

    • rooshoo 4 years ago

      The kiss more than the characters. Sometimes great characters fail to steam things up.

    • pinoyrecipe 4 years ago

      it's the kiss. period. ;-)

    • ashleynicole21 4 years ago

      I think the kiss is more important!

    • january962 5 years ago

      A little bit of both.

    • MatijaB LM 5 years ago

      ... the kiss :)

    • VspaBotanicals 5 years ago

      the kiss, definitely.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      it's both.

    • ryanhx64 5 years ago

      the kiss

    • sandi_x 5 years ago

      lovly lens

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      love the lens

    • vinodkpillai lm 5 years ago

      In my opinion, it's the kiss, the way it is shot and the buildup to it that makes it great.

    • karen550 lm 5 years ago

      What a great idea for a lens! I LOVE IT!!!

    • kmariedubya 5 years ago

      I'm a bit torn but I guess I would have to say that it is the actual kiss and the moments that lead up to the kiss. You anticipate it and when it happens it is the ultimate climax that you have been waiting for.

    • lindashifferk 5 years ago

      I can't say actual Kiss or Character Kiss. But most of the kisses are just a character Kiss.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      It is really remarkable clip which is fantastic moment for evergreen enjoy.

    • biggking lm 5 years ago

      nice

    • Spiderlily321 5 years ago

      I think it's both. They have to have great chemistry and it has to look real. Some kisses in movies look so fake.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I think that it can be both the actual kiss and the characters kiss because it depends on how much chemistry you have with that person. You can make it boring if you're not into the character.

    • Marilyn Thompson 5 years ago from Washington State

      The kiss is great if it connects the roles of the characters and the scene, so does that mean they are one and the same?

      hmmm . . .

    • BariqKasep 5 years ago

      kiss pretty exciting ... I was tempted to see it

    • AustriaChick 5 years ago

      I think that our own emotions that we put into the kiss make it great!

    • LeslieMirror 5 years ago

      Everything is important. Characters, place, music... May be music is that magic trick which makes kisses in movies great

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Its a combination of the people and the style. The best kisses are either slow and discovering or fast and fearless. In movies, its usually the tension and situation surrounding the kiss that makes it the most interesting and passionate.

    • virtualboy 5 years ago

      I would say the kiss and congrats on winning the purple star.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      i think its the electricity that one can feel and the sparks that you can see flying just before the lips meet makes the kiss amazing....

    • anthie lm 5 years ago

      the kiss..it has to be..

    • MarkHansen 5 years ago

      It's the authenticy!

    • MojoMOM 5 years ago

      The kisses in Dirty Dancing are my vote! Everything about that whole movie was magical.

    • goo2eyes lm 5 years ago

      the kiss makes it great. a kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh - casablanca.

    • MelonyVaughan 5 years ago

      A kiss can be truly magical!

    • AJ 5 years ago from Australia

      Rachel and Finn?

    • SteveKaye 5 years ago

      It's the exchange of affection.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Its always the kiss,in which manner the couple kisses. It doesnt matter they are ugly or beautiful.....as when a couple kisses we doesnt see whether the couple are attractive or not,we just pay attention how affentionate and seductive was their kiss.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      A bit of both - I hate watching bad kisses and there are plenty!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I think its a little of both, it depends on how passionate the actors are to each other to make it believable, and how good the kiss looks !!!

    • nyclittleitaly 5 years ago

      the kiss

    • cgayanga 5 years ago

      actual kiss

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I think it's both, but a tiny bit more the kiss.

    • WriterJanis2 5 years ago

      It's really both.

    • desa999 lm 5 years ago

      I like the lingering mysterious kisses.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I loved the style of the kisses and there kiss was quiet beautiful

      I saw a true LOCK in them

    • shauna1934 5 years ago

      the honestly, trust and love (not to mention passion) behind the kiss...

    • Larbin 5 years ago

      definitely characters...the dogs still did well in the lady and the tramp. :-p

    • hamdaniamin 5 years ago

      I like the ghost and dirty dancing kiss.

    • hamdaniamin 5 years ago

      I like the kissing scene in ghost and dirty dancing.

    • fugeecat lm 5 years ago

      The Kiss Me video is great. And I believe the lady and the tramp kiss is the best one.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I think it's both. My favorite movie kiss is Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in âGhostâ

    • liam999 5 years ago

      Speaking as an experienced kisser myself, i would have to say that nothing can substitute for passion in a kiss. Passion is unmistakable, on screen or off; and it always captures us.

    • Quintoplet 5 years ago

      I like the kissing scene in Ghost movie.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Soft and passionate kisses...That's what makes the kiss and the movie both!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Its the kiss definitely

    • Domique21 5 years ago

      I think its the kiss. when movie characters are kissing we don't mind the role they played but we are thinking of someone we want to kiss.

    • Echo Phoenix 5 years ago

      it's in the Kiss! the very idea of the kiss stirs passionate desire...

    • dexter yarbroug1 6 years ago

      I like the kiss!

    • andrewsmith123 6 years ago

      I like the kiss and the passion behind it.

    • squidoock 6 years ago

      My favorite kiss is in "you've got mail". The way the whole movie leads up to it is great.

    • squidoock 6 years ago

      My favorite is kiss is in you've got mail! Just the way the whole movie leads up to it. You can't help but get drawn in.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      For me, I hate a kiss that's really wet, it's just gross. The best kisses are the ones that come when you're not expecting them, the spontaneous kiss ROCKS! :-)

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      I love kiss....

    • riconquistare 6 years ago

      the character.

    • mcallen14 6 years ago

      i think it's neither. i think it is based on the kissing scene. for example, in pirates of the caribbean, you know the love is there between will and elizabeth but they don't kiss until the very end. the longer the characters go without kissing each other the stronger it will be. That plus the music and camera angles. but then again, they did the same exact thing in hairspray but that was a terrible kiss because the actors kissed terribly...

    • JCEverett 6 years ago

      It's the impulsively emotional response to the characters, the story, and more importantly the music.

    • wizardgold lm 6 years ago

      Well I like the kiss in the spiderman movie when spiderman kisses Mary Jane while he is upside down and it is raining.

    • cheaphoteldeal 6 years ago

      its the kiss, then the persons who kissing, and the way they kiss, and the passionate of kissing emotions, and the scene where are they kissing.

    • GrabThePopcorn 6 years ago

      It is the kiss itself. The best are either when the storyline is slowly building as well as the romance, but it is not just given away, and then the kiss comes. The other type is when great obstacles are overcome and then the kiss culminates it all, almost like the ultimate prize. Of course you cannot beat the children's innocent kisses too.

    • txussr 6 years ago

      Hey!! I rreally enjoyed it! :D

    • medster 6 years ago

      How real it looks and feels

    • dingzhudingzhu 6 years ago

      very good! Thanks!

    • rdgubaten lm 6 years ago

      It's the kiss on how it is executed with the feelings.

    • duongst72 6 years ago

      It's action great!

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      The actual kiss :)

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Kissing, not sucking.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      It's the kiss. I like the Wedding Singer kiss: soft open lips, "church tongue" and oh so sweet. :-)

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Lots and lots of tongue.

    It's the characters.

        The kiss in Silver Linings Playbook was nice.

      • TheCozyDinosaur 3 years ago

        it's the characters! The characters, and knowing the story of their relationship that makes a kiss great.

      • Meganhere 3 years ago

        Brokeback. So passionate.

      • sierradawn lm 3 years ago

        The characters doing the kissing & how they do it. Lady & Tramp kissing over the spaghetti is my favorite!

      • kab 4 years ago from Upstate, NY

        @anonymous: Brokeback didn't do it for me. Too much anger. Best gay kiss goes to Jason Ritter at the end of Happy Endings.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        sort of sad brokeback mountain isn't on this list

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        The characters, the kiss, the build up to the kiss...

      • WhiteIsland 4 years ago

        I really think the chemistry between the characters is what makes a toe-tingling kiss. :)

      • ChristyZ 4 years ago

        If the characters have chemistry the kiss ends up perfect!

      • BarbsSpot 4 years ago

        @Lensmaster...Definitely the characters. Rhett Butler saying goodbye (and hello) to Scarlett O'Hara and telling her how and how much she should be kissed! Wow! And Jimmy Stewart desperately telling Donna Reed as they crunch lips how he doesn't want to...be in love! Off the charts!

      • ruth-williams lm 4 years ago

        The characters, definitely! The way they act, their back story, and everything else is what makes a movie kiss great!

      • waynekat 4 years ago

        It's how much passion the characters are able to convey.. Or innocence or awkwardness or or or.. The human component

      • psygeek 4 years ago

        Pershaps is how much the actors and actresses are drawn into the passionate kissing on the screens. And best of all the actors and actresses fell in love after that.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        It's the feeling of a great new sensation in the stomach for at least one of the kissers. It's amazing that all these "first-time" kisses don't lead to motel time after the seqquel.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        It's the fact that you learn to love the characters and start relating to them and so when they kiss you really think its great

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        It is the connection...Twilght's first of Edward and Bella in the gazebo.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        When it seems rebellious yet thoughtful

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        You guys sure have alot of time on your hands.

      • alexbricker 4 years ago

        The situation, backstory, and character development all add to the drama and suspense. Years ago when I was dating my wife (then girlfriend), I remember kissing in the rain after surprising her to swing dance lessons. I will never forget that time. I think a good movie kiss has to have the beautiful background and setting to make it memorable.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Wait! Where is the scene of Colin Firth from Bridget Jones' Diary? I still can't believe Renee got paid to make that movie! I think I'd just keep flubbing the scene so I could kiss Colin again and again. And again. *sigh*

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        It takes both kissing as if a great feeling of joy is welling up with the kiss.

      • MrsNagrom 4 years ago

        I think it's the characters that make the kiss great! Your mind desperately wants them to be together so when it happens you get excited. Whereas, if two characters kiss & you didn't want them to be, it doesn't matter how good the kiss looks.. you want it to stop!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Believability

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I'd say it's the characters and their relationship; if it's just two characters that just met at a party, then it won't be good, but if it's two characters that are truly in love, then it will be.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Come on...no Bella and Edward?

      • rudhushudu 4 years ago

        the intamacy they show

      • Ajeet 4 years ago

        I don't like to admit it, but it is really the characters.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        If the characters have good chemistry then its good!

      • xtianfriborg13 4 years ago

        The characters gives life to the kiss! A kiss is just a kiss unless you, too, can feel the feelings the characters put into it.

      • WWurpleW 4 years ago

        You have to love the characters to love the kiss. The kiss is about them, and knowing that they finally "get it" can be the most exciting of all. Shout out to Ross and Rachel from Friends!

      • kaberlynsmommy 4 years ago

        the characters have to make you feel something .. or else a kiss is a kiss is a kiss.. but if the actor and actress leads you to feel,cry,laugh excite, your emotions are all in this thing like you are there living in one of the characters. It gives us all a chance to ... be swept off our feet. So.. I'd say the characters definently make the kiss! (you don't always want to see the head cheerleader kiss the football jock.. sometimes you wanna see the head cheerleader kiss the star wars nerd that half stalks her through high school! ) Love it!

      • jadapotata 4 years ago

        Characters. You have to care about the characters in order to feel something for them.

      • soaringsis 4 years ago

        The characters for me. Especially if it's unexpected.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        the love between the two characters and their undying love for each other and there is no better screen kiss then Arwen and Aragon in the Lord of the rings return of the King.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        The characters. It's in the chemistry I see between them :)

      • MatthewDasher 4 years ago

        Characters for sure.

      • ToneyWernsman 4 years ago

        Characters all the way

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I think both...

      • fathomblueEG 5 years ago

        I think it's the characters and all they do before leading up to the kiss of a lifetime.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Both are important, but you feel something special if it's a significant character.

      • latiptop 5 years ago

        Definitely the emotional involvement with the characters.:)

      • NNwadiogbu 5 years ago

        Loving the characters themselves makes the kiss all the more sweeter. Great lens!

      • Millionairemomma 5 years ago

        The story behind the movie.

      • Michey LM 5 years ago

        I think it is a combination of both, but the characters, the story, the talented actors contribute a lot to a perfect kiss.

      • SquidooMBA 5 years ago

        I say it is the story.

      • tricomanagement 5 years ago

        the characters, in my opinion, make up 95% of the appeal - the other 5% is the kiss

      • katieross 5 years ago

        Characters, for sure.

      • Kathleen Hiler 5 years ago from Mountain Home

        It's the kiss..when they show all the emotion and lead up to it in just the right way :)

      • Elares 5 years ago

        It is definitely the buildup. One of my favorite film kisses is from "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", between Zooey Deschanel and Martin Freeman. By modern film standards, it's quite a chaste kiss, but it's incredibly sweet and endearing.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        The storyline.

      • makeupyippy 5 years ago

        It's definitely the characters and their story!!!

      • Dawn Michael 5 years ago from Thousand Oaks

        It can be the build up to the kiss, and of course of the two people kissing have amazing sexual chemistry. Kissing can be one of the best lead ups to wonderful intimacy, and exchange of hormones in the saliva.

      • KateHonebrink 5 years ago

        The characters make the kiss!

      • BestMusicHits 5 years ago

        the kiss is also very important , but most importantly how everything is building up in the movie , and in real life as well! that's the real affection! loved Dirty Dancing kiss! Patrick Swayze is like the wind! may he rest in peace!...

      • melissiaoliver 5 years ago

        It's a combination of the kiss and the characters themselves. When you've been waiting throughout the film for two characters to get together and they finally do, it's wonderful.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        i love u haha fatty

      • duslan 5 years ago

        It's the moment right before the kiss when you can feel the electricity on the screen...amazing.

      • brynimagire 5 years ago

        character.

      • JetGirl13 5 years ago

        Isn't it a combination of both? I'd say chemistry--which is part character, part actor, and part something intangible altogether--makes it exceptional or a dud.

      • AJ 5 years ago from Australia

        It's the combination of the kiss and the characters. Just like in real life!

      • top101 5 years ago

        The characters of course! You get attached to them!

      • flycatcherrr 5 years ago

        Characters, no question. Otherwise, it's just a couple of humans in a lip lock.

      • River_Rose 5 years ago

        Both actually.

      • SarahHappens 5 years ago

        It's the story that led up to the kiss. If there was chemistry between the actors all along, the kiss is the finale of a great romantic tango. I'd like to add my favorite kissing scene to the list. It was in the movie Cinema Paridiso. Toto (Marco Leonardi) kisses his girlfriend in the rain, in front of an outdoor movie, in a small village in Italy. Swoon!

      • Amor77 5 years ago

        i think the character reflects itself to the kiss...

      • SophiaStar LM 5 years ago

        I think it is the characters, the story behind the kiss.

      • Holysheepskin LM 5 years ago

        It's totally the characters, they have to have chemistry, it makes it more believeable.

      • mimthemom 5 years ago

        I love Patrick S. Great lens!

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Nobody enjoys a kiss when they get annoyed by the characters face. It's very opinionated, but true. The problem with this generation is that actors and actresses are chosen not only by talent, but by appearance as well. Personally , I think it's wrong to judge a person by how they look but I know I do it.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        I would say the characters, the kiss is just a part of their charm, and every character has the power to transform an ill situated kiss into a wonderful moment...

      • Chocolate Pickney 5 years ago from Jamaica

        Its the character for me mostly, then the rest is left up to the actual kiss. Especially if the male character is on my 'favorite actors list'

      • BruceBuss 5 years ago

        I think it's the characters because we all put ourselves in the place of the other character when watching it.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        My vote for best kiss is The Mirror Has Two Faces, when they totally make out right before Jeff Bridges runs out of the room. There is no other on screen kiss that is sexier. You can see the heat and attraction between the two characters which is essential to notice because Jeff's character is not supposed to be physically attracted to Barbra at all. It is definitely the characters.

      • Edutopia 5 years ago

        The kiss only matters because of the characters doing the kiss.

      • fullofshoes 5 years ago

        def the characters.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        It's the circumstances with the characters leading up to the kiss. My two fave scenes are Veronica and Logan on Veronica Mars and Michael and Fiona on Burn Notice. It's the build up to the kiss that makes it good.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        I believe, it's the characters that make the kissing scene look great.

      • Diana_Simion 5 years ago

        I would say it is both.. but I have to choose.. and since it is a movie.. then the characters do it! :-)

      • bootsguy 5 years ago

        torrid kiss with passion and starving for it... making out is not great without the hunger feeling for it.

      • Frank Edens 5 years ago

        they should build up the story, so the better the kiss is.

      • aquarian_insight 5 years ago

        The characters, chemistry, and the fact that they finally get to kiss!

      • peppervel 5 years ago

        It's the chemistry between the two characters that the audience can feel. It's the emotions that they act out.

      • nsixx99 5 years ago

        i say it is the context and whether or not the audience is invested in the characters.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        I'd say its more the character.

          Really interesting lens! I remember reading about the kiss in the Hitchcock classic ''Notorious.'' It was the longest kiss in the history of movies in the time. It was not just one kiss however, but the production code forbade a kiss lasting longer than three seconds, so Bergman and Grant alternate kissing with dialogue and eyeplay, while never leaving one another's arms (http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-noto...

          Wow, great list. I'm surprised you didn't put "Never Been Kissed" or "The Replacements" If you haven't watched them in a while, they both happen in the end. Very worth it! (Replacements has another great kiss prior to the last game which is also great cause it's swept in by some awesome Voice Over work).

It was a goodbye kiss and it was a beginning of the end kiss. But it was a kiss that looked worth it. Gere was one sexy kisser but I never saw another of his or anyone else as sexy as this one.

          You forgot the kiss between Richard Gere and Julia Ormond in First Knight, Thornbirds (kiss on the beach), Little House On The Prairie Nellie and Percival's first kiss. Still love Rachael and Ross's big kiss!

          The kiss i could watch over and over again is in the last scene of the first Twilight movie between Edward and Bella on the gazebo.

          There is a beautiful Italian movie called "Cinema Paradiso", if you haven't watched it I strongly recommend it. Besies the beautiful story around the town movie theatre, you see how all kiss scnens where cut out of the movie before it was shown to the public. The end... you better watch it :) I like Gone with the Wind and Cinema Paradiso :)

          Kiss between Ross and Rachel on friends. The one where they were watching an old video and Ross was going to go with Rachel but her date finally showed up.

          One of my favorites is from the movie The Luck of the Irish with Tyrone Power. Included in the cast was Jayne Meadows as his girlfriend. When the two of them kissed, it was remarkable considering the movie was from the 40s or 50s. It caused the director to comment "I don't know who was eating who."

          Oh, you missed quite a few. But, I'll limit my suggestions to five. Can't go wrong with these. How could you not include ONE kissing scene with Cary Grant?!?! The man could teach a semester-long course on memorable kissing scenes! Watch these on YouTube:

          1) Jean Arthur & Joel McCrea in THE MORE THE MERRIER - watch all 4.5 minutes, from the walk to the stairs to when she can barely catch her balance to go up to her room; sexy, seductive & hilarious

          2) Cary Grant & Grace Kelly in TO CATCH A THIEF - there are two kisses, the one at the door & the one when she seduces him into holding "her diamonds" & fireworks explode behind them

          3) Cary Grant & Eva Marie Saint in NORTH BY NORTHWEST - the moving kiss in her train stateroom shot through a somehow transparent wall is electric!

          4) Tony Curtis & Marilyn Monroe in SOME LIKE IT HOT - He's impersonating Cary Grant & she steams up his glasses while trying to get a rise out of him. Literally. Because he's claimed to be impotent. Because there's nothing so irresistible to a woman as a guy who is not interested in women. It's intercut w/scenes of Jack Lemmon doing the tango in drag with Joe E. Lewis. It's a great kissing scene precisely because Curtis is trying so hard to *not* be aroused by MM, so she does all the work. Monroe's flawless comic timing is the piece de resistance to this kissing souffle. "So inhale!"

          5) Glenn Ford & Rita Hayworth in GILDA - They have a past, she just married his boss, and it's film noir. "I hate you too, Johnny. I hate you so much, I think I'm going to die from it." Ooooooo!

          Richard Gere and Julia Ormond in "First Knight". The kiss when she "asks" him to as he is leaving here. The way he crosses the room to her and just slams their lips together...oh my!

          What a fantastic idea for a lens.. OK, admittedly, it's not a kiss scene from a movie (or even a kiss for that matter), but I still laugh every time I watch the episode of Friends with Chandler and Phoebe pretending they want to kiss each other, getting closer and closer to that awesome moment, and finally pulling away in panic before it goes to far!

          I liked the kiss in Groundhog Day. The scene at the end where Bill Murray kisses Andie MacDowell. He finally turns into a good guy and learns his lesson when he begins to help and serve others besides himself.
