5. My Girl (1991) – Ah, young love! It’s just a little peck, but that sweet, innocent moment between Thomas J (Macaulay Culkin) and Vada (Anna Chlumksy) in the sentimental childhood flick, My Girl, prooves that age is no barrier in matters of the heart.

6. Ghost (1990) – The steamy kiss between Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) when he lifts her up from the pottery wheel in Ghost stands out as one of the sexiest on-screen kisses of all time.


7. Titanic (1997) – It’s an iconic scene from the nineties classic The Titanic, when Jack kisses Rose on the top deck of the ship just as the sun begins to rise. He may have been young, but man, Leo had game!


8. Lady and the Tramp (1955) – Who can forget the famous ‘spaghetti and meatballs’ scene from Lady and the Tramp? It’s got all the ingredients – hehe – for a perfect first kiss: a romantic, candlelit setting, an overflowing bowl of pasta, and a mandolin and accordion serenade to set the mood. That’s amore!

10. Australia (2008) – What happens when Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman join forces in an Australian-American-British western film? Oh, just an insanely epic, passionate in-the-rain kiss.
