Odd Smooching Moments on Film

    Films have been full of loving beautiful kisses since day one but thankfully there have been the occasional weird, off-color, or outright bizarre kisses.

    Here are five that are worthy of a mention….

    Upside Down Kiss – Spiderman

    After being attacked by a gang in an alley Mary Jane was kissed by Spidey.  What’s interested about this scene is that you never saw a kiss like this before.  A.  Half a mask was still on his face and B.  You just never saw an upside down kiss like that on screen.   The “Do I get to say thank you this time?” line was a little lame.

    The Learning to Kiss Kiss – Cruel Intentions

    I’m pretty sure this will go down as one of my favorite kisses in the history of cinema.  I mean come on.  It’s one hot female teaching another hot female how to French Kiss.  Do we really need more explanation?

    Human and Computer Kiss – Tron

    The climactic kiss between computer program Yori (Cindy Morgan) and human “user” Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), following his resolution to jump suicidally into the energy beam of the Master Control Program (MCP) to save “video game warrior” Tron (Bruce Boxleitner).  This is before Cyber anything.  Pretty cool if you ask me.

    The Kiss of Death Kiss – Godfather II

    “I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart”  Man every time I see this kiss I still get goosebumps.  How awesome is this?

    Man and Ape – Planet of the Apes

    This scene is the first to show a bond of love between animal (played by a human in costume) and human. Displaced astronaut-human George Taylor (Charlton Heston) kissed scientist-ape Zira (Kim Hunter), following this situation, as they stood next to crashing waves on a beach: Taylor: “Doctor, I’d like to kiss you goodbye.” Zira: “All right … but you’re so damned ugly!”  Classic.
