With Valentine’s day approaching, we’re feeling the love at PBHQ. We’ve been watching plenty of romantic movies and it’s got us thinking – what makes the perfect on-screen kiss?
There’s no sure way to make a kiss cute and avoid being cringe. The lighting needs to be on point, it’s got to be in the right moment and if the actors have no chemistry, well, it’s going to be a disaster.
Whatever the magic formula is, there’s a few kisses on film that got it bang on. They’re the sort of films we fall in love with because of their unforgettable romances and picture-perfect pecks.
You don’t need a bae to feel the romantic vibes this Valentine’s day. with these super sweet on-screen kisses! Read on for our list of the best kisses on film.
We don’t want to hear: ‘Why didn’t Rose share the door with Jack?’.
Yes, we’re still hurt too, but for now we’re going to let it go and enjoy the romance between the young Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
It’s one of the most famous movie scenes off all time. We can’t help but swoon when Jack and Rose share a smooch under the sunset during the famous Titanic ‘flying scene’.
Did you know: Titanic made over $2 billion when it was released in cinemas.
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
This Disney classic ticks all the boxes for the perfect on-screen kiss!
When the pooches famously share a plate of spaghetti, they meet in the middle of a strand of pasta to share a kiss.
Set under the moon and lit by a candle, these cute canines have the mood just right for an adorable romantic moment. Cue a chorus of “Awww”.
The Notebook (2004)
Is there anything more romantic than a kiss in the rain?
The Notebook got this moment so right, from the dramatic rain to the perfect line: "It wasn't over … it still isn't over." *sobbing*
But at the time of filming, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams didn’t even like each other. Director Nick Cassavetes said that he eventually forced the pair to hash it out.
Their amazing acting had us believing they were truly in love throughout this whole film.
Another fun fact is that Gosling and McAdams actually did end up dating IRL.
Mr & Mrs Smith (2005)
After trying to kill each other (literally), John and Jane, played by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, kiss and make-up in this fiery scene.
Their steamy on-screen romance actually turned into a real-life relationship.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’re sure you’ve heard of Brangelina.
The couple swears they didn’t get together until after Pitt split from his then wife Jennifer Anniston, but their chemistry in this film has us believing otherwise.
The Princess Diaries (2001)
The Princess Diaries gave us more than just an amazing make-over scene. Mia (Anne Hathaway) was literally our spirit animal growing up!
Mia and Michael share a kiss fit for royalty in the one of the final scenes of the film as Michael confesses that he’s had a crush on her for, like, forever.
How could we not be obsessed with a princess’ love story!?
