Best Screen Kisses (According to Me!)

Who doesn’t love a great screen kiss? The kind that makes your heart beat faster and a dreamy smile appear on your face. I know I do. This month, to keep me warm in the great grey depths of winter (yes, it’s cold in my part of the world and I’m definitely feeling it), I decided to share my top four picks for Best Screen Kisses of All Time. I’ve provided a link to YouTube for each, so you can enjoy these romance moments at their best – dreamy smiles are optional. 🙂

Number 4: Watts and Keith in Some Kind of Wonderful
As an almost teenager, I adored this movie. My sisters and I were hopelessly in love with Eric Stoltz and we replayed this scene so many times I’m pretty sure we wore out the tape (it was a VCR copy, a fact which makes me feel old). In this story, Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) and Keith (Eric Stoltz) are best friends. Keith manages to score a date with one of the most beautiful girls in school, Amanda. In the lead-up to the date, Watts decides to help Keith ‘prepare’ for his big date.

Number 3: Karen and Matt in Daredevil
Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) has had a crush on Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil, a superhero who manages to take down the bad guys despite being blind since childhood – played by Charlie Cox) almost from the moment she met him. He took a while to get his act together, but by season two of this Netflix TV series, he was ready to seduce his lady love. Rain never looked so good.

Number 2: Hannah and Tom in Made of Honor
Hannah (Michelle Monaghan) and Tom (Patrick Dempsey) are best friends. Of course, Tom realises he’s in love with Hannah just in time for her to get engaged to someone else. As preparations for the wedding gear up, Tom (who is now the ‘Maid’ of Honor) is desperate to win Hannah’s heart before it’s too late. In this scene, Hannah is enjoying an old tradition of giving kisses for coins, when she gets a little more than she bargained for from her best friend.

My Number 1 Best Screen Kiss: Gray and Fritz in Catch and Release
Gray (Jennifer Garner) is devastated when her fiance, Grady, dies in an accident just days before their wedding. As she starts to rebuild her life, she finds comfort in spending time with Grady’s friends, including playboy photographer, Fritz (Timothy Olyphant). Throughout the story, Gray finds that Grady was keeping secrets from her and she begins to question how well she knew her fiance. When she discovers that Fritz has lied about the extent of Grady’s misdeeds to spare her feelings, she’s pretty pissed off about it. Note: This kiss is so good it’s been watched on YouTube nearly 11 million times (a few too many of those may have been me).

I hope you enjoyed the list. If you have a favourite screen kiss of your own, I’d love to know what it is!
