My Favorite On-Screen Kisses of All Time

1. Julian Sands and Helena Bonham-Carter, in "A Room with a View"
Bonham-Carter (Lucy Honeychurch) is standing in the middle of a field of flowers (a field of violets, as described by E.M. Forster, in his novel). Sands (George Emerson) walks toward her from behind. The camera dollies in and swings around them as he takes her in his arms to give her a long passionate kiss.

2. Julian Sands and Helena Bonham-Carter, in "A Room with a View"
I love Julian Sands :P After playing tennis, Daniel Day-Lewis (playing an uncharacteristically dweeby boyfriend Cecil Vyse) and Bonham-Carter make their way back to the house. They bump into Sands; Day-Lewis' clueless character goes ahead of Bonham-Carter whose path Sands mischievously blocks. Again, without even so much as a word, he grabs her by the arms and steals a kiss. Yum-mee! He just positively looked devilish after that kiss.

3. Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in "Spiderman"
Because it's upside-down and it's very wet.

4. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally"
That kiss Crystal (Harry Burns) gives Ryan (Sally Albright) after giving this speech:

I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Now, how can you not like a kiss delivered after a speech like that?

5. Jeff Bridges and Barbra Streisand, in "The Mirror Has Two Faces"
To a swelling musical background of "Nessun Dorma" performed by Pavarotti, Bridges (Gregory Larkin) and Streisand (Rose Morgan) embrace, kiss and make up, and kiss and sway non-stop in the middle of a street in Manhattan. When they start kissing it is still dawn, and as they finish just before the credits stop rolling, it is already light. It is magical--and funny, because the kissing makes the two characters so horny and the scene fades out on them as they frantically flail their arms to flag down a cab to take them home.

6. Colin Firth and Renee Zellweger, in "Bridget Jones's Diary"
The kiss at the end where Zellweger's (Bridget Jones) clad only in a tank, animal print panties, a cardigan and trainers. Firth (Mark Darcy) pulls her in and encloses her in his coat and they continue kissing as snow flakes gently fall about them.

7. Hugh Jackman and Ashley Judd, in "Someone Like You"
Just because they're both beautiful. And because their kiss happens late in the movie, after all that sexual tension builds up.

8. Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"
Because I like happy, giddy kisses.

9. Robin Padilla and Regine Velasquez, in"Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw"
Bb. Joyce Bernal made Robin Padilla so papa-ble in this movie. Yummy nung kiss nila dun sa ulan, sabay tugtog ng "Buhos na ulan, at ang mundo ko'y lunuring tuluyan..." sa background. Hehe, one of my many guilty pleasures. I have the cd of the OST and the original movie on vcd :p

10. Tobey McGuire and Kirsten Dunst in "Spiderman"
Kissing somebody in the rain while hanging upside-down must be terribly interesting, don't you think? The rush of blood to the head, and the feeling of drowning in the kiss!

I am SO in love. And I could not find a container big enough to contain it, where it will not overflow.
