Best on screen kiss?

Posted in Question of the week by hayley247 on March 31, 2009

This weeks question is undoubtedly one of the hardest. With so many amazing love stories on screen, how can we possibly choose? But the question we are posing – given it’s a toughie, is who would you award with the best on screen kiss of all time? Whether it’s as obvious as Leo Dicaprio and Claire Danes in that lift scene in the 90’s remake of Romeo and Juliet or as obscure as Will Smith teaching Kevin James to smooch on a doorstep in Hitch, we want to know what you think! Here’s a few of our favourites:

The Notebook

The Notebook

* Anne Hathaway in Princess Diaries, when she finally gets that ‘toe curling’ kiss

* Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in that rain scene from The Notebook ‘It wasn’t over…it still isn’t over!’

* Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey in How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days. The bathroom scene where they realise they have finally fallen for each other – cute!

* Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates – because we’re sure no one has had that many first kisses!

* Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in the snow (and in pants) in Bridget Jones Diary, after he forgives her for verbally bashing him in her diary

How to lose a guy in ten days

How to lose a guy in ten days

* Chad Michael Murray and Hilary Duff in a Cinderella Story – the rain scene

* Martine Mccutcheon and Hugh Grant in Love Actually – because we cracked up watching it when the stage curtain fell down!

So what about our winner? It has to go to Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in the ultimate rom com Pretty Woman. You spend the entire film watching the relationship between the pair blossom whilst never actually seeing them kiss. Remember when Vivienne admits that kissing on the lips is ‘too personal’? You get to see the duo in some raunchy on screen shots but it’s never romantic – that is until the kiss.

Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman

It comes after Vivienne and Edward spend the afternoon together playing happy couples and they both realise they have fallen for each other. Whilst Edward lays on the bed asleep, Vivienne pecks his cheek tenderly before planting a big kiss on his lips, when Edward wakes up…if you haven’t seen it (where have you been?) then we’re sure you can guess what happens next. The fact that the film starts off as Edward supposedly trying to save Vivienne, and ends with her actually saving him, adds to the overall amazingness of the flick. And it’s for that reason Pretty Woman is our winner for best on screen kiss of all time!

    Pretty Woman rocks my world. Although maybe a close second would be the kiss at the end of Step Up? When Channing’s cheek muscle twitches? And how could you forget Bella and Edward’s kiss in Twilight? So much pent up sexual tension….

    Totally agree…there’s a big build up to the kiss as she doesn’t believe in it. Also loooove the kiss in Romeo & Juliet
