10 Best Kissing Scenes In Movies

Wednesday, November 17 by Andrew Jett

If you’re a true romantic at heart, you’re probably familiar with the 10 best kissing scenes in movies. Hollywood has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to romance and these kissing scenes have become iconic movie moments.

  1. “Say Anything…” (Ione Skye and John Cusack) In this 1989 film, Lloyd Dobler gave average guys hope by winning the heart of beautiful valedictorian Diane Court. Their rain-drenched kissing scene was one of the best of the ‘80s.
  2. “From Here to Eternity” (Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster) In one of the most famous kissing scenes, these two picked the perfect setting for their makeout session: lying on a beach in Hawaii surrounded by ocean waves.
  3. “The Notebook” (Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling) In yet another rainy kissing scene, McAdams and Gosling brought Nicholas Sparks’s novel to life. This 2004 movie was full of noteworthy kissing, but the wet smooches at the film’s romantic peak top the rest.
  4. “Gone With the Wind” (Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable) “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” Say it ain’t so, Clark Gable! Your kissing scene in this 1939 classic was the stuff of legend, proving once and for all that movie women love tough guys.
  5. “The Goonies” (Kerri Green and Sean Astin) In a case of mistaken identity, popular cheerleader Andy shares a kissing scene with Mikey, all the while thinking he's Mikey’s older brother. If we had a nickel for every time that’s happened to us…
  6. “Wild Things” (Neve Campbell and Denise Richards) As the only girl-girl entry on the ten best kissing scenes in movies, Campbell and Richards used a swimming pool and plenty of nudity to solidify themselves as daydream fodder for legions of men everywhere in this 1998 movie.
  7. “Ghost” (Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze) If you like your kissing scenes with a heavy dose of paranormal, this 1990s movie is for you. Moore’s character makes out with her deceased lover alongside a spinning pottery wheel. It’s a little creepy, but sweet.
  8. “Brokeback Mountain” (Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal) If a pair of women can qualify for the ten best kissing scenes in movies, a pair of dudes can, too. In this award-winning 2005 movie, Wyoming cowboys Ledger and Gyllenhaal share a steamy reunion kissing scene, while Ledger’s character’s wife secretly looks on. Oops!
  9. “Spider-Man” (Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire) We’re starting to notice a theme here. Rain is, again, a kissing scene as co-stars Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson share an unconventional upside down kiss in this 2002 movie.
  10. “Back to the Future” (Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover) This classic 1985 movie was the first to bring kissing into the fourth dimension. If Thompson and Glover’s climactic dance floor kiss hadn’t happened, Michael J. Fox’s character would never have been born. Talk about your important kissing scene implications.
