Best Kissing Scenes: Like Crazy

Today is International Kissing Day, but there isn’t a date where we don’t want to celebrate the best kissing scenes in movies. We may love our horror and action films, but romance has our hearts, too. These are the moments that make us swoon, all streaming free now.

Best Kissing Scenes in Movies on Tubi TV:

Best Kissing Scenes: Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing (1993)

There’s so much joy in this Shakespearean adaptation directed by star Kenneth Branagh, but it reaches its peak in this climax that finally brings bickering foes Benedick (Branagh) and Beatrice (Emma Thompson) together. Branagh and Thompson were married during shooting, and they really go for it.


Best Kissing Scenes: Alfie

Alfie (2004)

Then off-screen married couple Jude Law and Sienna Miller heat things up in this scene where the titular Lothario is trying to change his ways. Alfie isn’t a traditional romance, but it’s hard not to root for the character to find love.


Best Kissing Scenes: Like Crazy

Like Crazy (2011)

This sweet, intimate film has always slayed us, but after the death of Anton Yelchin, it absolutely breaks our heart. Pick any kissing scene in the long-distance romance between Yelchin’s Jacob and Felicity Jones’ Anna, and we’re a puddle on the floor.


Best Kissing Scenes: Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet (1968)

Though the 1996 Baz Luhrmann version is more familiar to today’s audiences, this Oscar winner is a classic. Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting are wonderful as the star-crossed lovers, with their first kiss cementing their place in cinema history.


Best Kissing Scenes: Return to Me

Return to Me (2000)

We’re a sucker for the courtship of Minnie Driver’s Grace and David Duchovny’s Bob in this delightfully old-school rom-com. Grace and Bob’s first kiss comes post-slap (whoops), which makes it all the sweeter.


Best Kissing Scenes: The Cutting Edge

The Cutting Edge (1992)

Are you more excited by the perfect execution of the Pamchenko twist or Kate’s confession to Doug that she loves him? Either way, the fiery chemistry between Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney melts us every time.


Best Kissing Scenes: Secretary

Secretary (2002)

Some might be surprised by how sweet this S&M romance is, but the connection between James Spader as the original Mr. Grey (eat your heart out, Fifty Shades of Grey) and Maggie Gyllenhaal as Lee is so much more than just sexual. This late scene shows Lee’s joy at their unconventional relationship.


Best Kissing Scenes: Sliding Doors

Sliding Doors (1997)

John Hannah is extremely underrated as a romantic lead, and he’s full-on adorable in this scene with his request, “Permission to engage the enemy, sir.” Sliding Doors does a great job of adding a new premise to the traditional romance, but it never shortchanges true emotion at the expense of its ambition.
