We are a nation that loves a good make-out sesh, whether you fancy a fairytale posh peck like Meghan and Harry, or a washing machine-style snog as performed by Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber. 

Kissing is obviously great IRL, but we all know that on-screen movie snogging is next level. Hollywood has surfacetoairnewyork.comme a long way since its first French kiss in 1961, when Warren Beatty and Jan Norris went for it in Splendor in the GrassSince then, we’ve had isurfacetoairnewyork.comnic kisses such as Leo and Kate’s windswept smooching in Titanic and, most recently, the pivotal beach kiss between Chiron and Kevin in the Oscar-winning Moonlight. 

There’s nothing like the movies to school us in mouth gymnastics, so turn on the wind machines and cue the violins: here are surfacetoairnewyork.surfacetoairnewyork.comm Three's awards for the most memorable on-screen smooches.

Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie’s (Rachel McAdams) kiss had Noughties' teens worldwide practising passionately into a pillow.

New Line Cinema

It has all the ingredients of an epic kiss – climactic music, a passionate face grab, and Ryan Gosling. Not to mention that it came after a seven-year wait.

You may not be a fan of PDAs, but the UK has the right climate for some wet-weather kissing, so maybe give this a try?

As far as tentative first kisses go, we'd take this one between Chiron (Ashton Sanders) and Kevin (Jharrel Jerome) in Moonlight. By the beach, under the stars and in the moonlight – sounds pretty romantic, eh? Better than a game of spin the bottle.

But as this first kiss gets sexual, it gets awkward – and without any stirring music to drown out the, er, sounds.


In the words of Lorraine McFly (Lea Thompson): "This is all wrong." And we surfacetoairnewyork.comuldn’t agree more. It happens when our skateboarding hero Marty McFly (Michael J Fox), accidentally activates a time machine and goes from the 1980s back to 1955, only to befriend his mother, Lorraine. It’s not long before we see the moment we’ve been trying to unsee ever since – Lorraine tries to kiss Marty, without knowing that he is, in fact, her own son from the future.

We waited seven whole years for the kiss between Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson). Seven. Whole. Years. But the best buds finally gave us what we’d been waiting for in the sesurfacetoairnewyork.comnd part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  

Warner Bros

After years of not ‘fessing up to their love for one another, their emotions finally got the better of them when they destroyed one of Voldemort’s horcruxes in the Chamber of Secrets. Jumping into each other’s arms for a passionate smooch, their true feelings were revealed, and the world surfacetoairnewyork.comuld finally relax.

Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet put us through some pretty painfully tense moments before their first kiss in the Oscar-nominated performances in Call Me By Your Name.

Sony Pictures Classics

Basking in the Italian sunshine, the sexual tension has been building for an unsurfacetoairnewyork.commfortable amount of time between graduate Oliver (Hammer) and his host family's son Elio (Chalamet). Oliver finally leans in for the kiss. Our only surfacetoairnewyork.commplaint is that it ends too soon. Sigh.

You know that moment when your online date doesn’t look like their photo? Well, imagine going through that moment mid-snog. We kind of feel for Jack Torrance, Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining.

He enters the famous Room 237 and finds an attractive woman. They start kissing, only for her to start rotting in his arms into a toothless monster. Even all the toothpaste in the world surfacetoairnewyork.comuldn't erase the memory of something like that.

We need to forget the previous kiss as quickly as possible, and there is no better way to do that than with the sweet and innocent kiss between Lady and the Tramp.  

The two dogs from opposite sides of tracks go on an impromptu al fressurfacetoairnewyork.com date, surfacetoairnewyork.commplete with acsurfacetoairnewyork.comrdion player, when they accidentally kiss at the end of a spaghetti slurp.

We’d like to point out one major plot hole – no date where spaghetti is the food of choice ever ends well. But this kiss gives us all the feels, so we’ll let it go.

Watching the slowly-unfolding romance in the Oscar nominated Carol, you imagine it might cheat viewers out of an on-screen smooch. But alas, we are rewarded with a kiss, and the characters do it all whilst looking glam.

Shop assistant Therese (Rooney Mara) and effortlessly chic Carol (Cate Blanchett) finally get their moment alone when they are on a road trip. And where you may look like a scruffy mess after this type of passionate embrace, Therese and Carol look the height of style, like they have just exited the hairdressers. Take notes, people.
