Top 10 Awkward Movie Kissing Scenes

Yuck, get a room you two! Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 awkward kissing scenes.

For this list, we’re taking a look at make out sessions from movies that were so uncomfortable, the entire audience needed a breath mint afterwards.

#10: Upside Down Kiss Redux
“Spider-Man 3” (2007)

We all remember Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson’s first upside down smooch in the original “Spider-Man;” it was romantic, charming, and instantly iconic. Peter ruins our fond memory of the kiss in “Spider-Man 3,” however, when he decides to recreate the moment with Gwen Stacy in front of a huge crowd. This public display of affection naturally infuriates Mary Jane and disgusts a random little boy. When the feuding couple meets up later, Peter’s longsuffering girlfriend tells him off and leaves Spidey hanging upside down to dry.

#9: Jim & Stifler
“American Pie 2” (2002)

In this scene from the sequel to “American Pie,” Jim and Stifler are forced to make the ultimate sacrifice in exchange for some girl-on-girl action. Like a porn website bleeding your wallet dry, the alleged lesbians demand the two bros pay up by puckering up. They try to quickly get the deed over and done with, but the ladies aren’t satisfied. The guys need to go open mouth for several solid seconds. At least they’re rewarded with some major boobage, which we sadly can’t show you here.

#8: You Taste Like a Burger
“Wet Hot American Summer” (2001)

Paul Rudd’s obnoxious Andy and Elizabeth Banks’ ditsy Lindsay slobber all over each other in this cult comedy. As Andy drowns in Lindsay’s mouth, a little boy literally drowns in the lake. Although he cries out for help, Andy can’t be pulled away from his French lesson. After the child descends to his watery grave, the lousy lifeguard disposes of a witness in a thorough manner. But at least he’ll never make this same mistake again…Oh gee, hopefully none of these kids come back as a hockey mask-wearing, machete-wielding madman.

#7: I’ll Take Care of You
“Casino” (1995)

Since “Casino” is a Martin Scorsese joint, be prepared to see a lot of lying, cheating, and at least one awkward scene involving Joe Pesci. Unable to get a divorce from her husband, Sharon Stone’s destructive Ginger turns to Pesci’s Nicky for help. Nicky agrees to take care of Ginger right after she takes care of him. The two start off by sucking each other’s faces. It doesn’t take long, however, until they make the leap from first base to third base. Talk about hitting the jackpot.

#6: Get Your Lips Off Me, You Damned Dirty Ape
“Planet of the Apes” (2001)

It was pretty weird in the original “Planet of the Apes” when Taylor gave Zira a kiss goodbye, but it was even weirder when Davidson gave Ari a peck on the lips in the 2001 remake. Maybe we could have accepted the image of Mark Wahlberg kissing a humanoid ape woman if the filmmakers did a better job building up their relationship. Like the rest of the movie, though, this kiss just feels painfully clumsy and unwarranted. The fact that Ari looks kinda like a hairy Michael Jackson doesn’t help either.

#5: Duck-on-Human Relations
“Howard the Duck” (1986)

We’d rather see Mark Wahlberg kiss every stinking ape on the planet then see Lea Thompson kiss Howard the Duck again. Jiggling around in pink underwear, Thompson invites the horny ducky into her bed. Their gauche flirtations soon advance to bestiality territory, which even Howard seems to know is disgusting. They don’t go all the way, but Thompson does plop one on Howard’s lips…that is if ducks had lips. All you can really say watching this grotesque silhouette kiss is, “No, just, no. Please take your furry fan fiction elsewhere.”

#4: Twincest
“EuroTrip” (2004)

In a movie full of strange sexual encounters, nothing quite tops this scene where Jamie gets frisky with a lady at a nightclub. To the shock of his friends and a hallucinogenic green fairy, the woman Jamie’s Frenching is none other than his twin sister. As the twins pull back and realize who they’ve been slipping the tongue, they’re just as horrified as everyone else. That’s what happens when you drink too much absinthe. Believe it or not, though, this isn’t even the most awkward kiss between twins on our list.

#3: Leia’s My Sister
“Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” (1980)

This kiss takes two whole movies to fully pay off in sheer awkwardness. Fed up with scruffy-looking nerf-herder Han, Princess Leia makes him jealous by snogging Luke. At first, Luke looks like a total stud. Then it’s revealed in “Return of the Jedi” that Leia is his twin sister…ew. Luke and Leia never discuss their kiss on Hoth, which we can’t blame them for. But as much as they want to ignore the elephant in the room, we all know it happened. Their dad must be so proud.

#2: Truth or Dare
“The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (2012)

No matter what you choose, every game of truth or dare is bound to be awkward. When shy freshman Charlie is dared to kiss the prettiest girl in the room, he throws himself at the lovely Sam without giving it a second thought. However, Charlie apparently forgot his clingy girlfriend, Mary Elizabeth, was sitting right next to him. This revelation immediately kills the party as Sam and Mary Elizabeth storm off. To be fair, though, who wouldn’t choose Hermione Granger over Ann/Bland/Egg from “Arrested Development?”

Before we lock lips with our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Face Crash Kiss
“Not Another Teen Movie” (2001)
- Old Lady Kiss
“Not Another Teen Movie” (2001)
- Floating Garth
“Wayne’s World 2” (1993)
- As Soon as I Free Willy
“Me, Myself & Irene” (2000)
- Dude
“BASEketball” (1998)

#1: It’s Like I’m Kissing My Brother
“Back to the Future” (1985)

What’s even more awkward than Lea Thompson kissing a duck? Try Lea Thompson kissing her future offspring. In “Back to the Future,” Thompson’s Lorraine becomes infatuated with Marty McFly – or as she calls him, Calvin Klein – unaware that one day she’ll give birth to him. She throws herself at the nervous teenage boy, who appears too stunned and traumatized to fend his mother off. Fortunately for Marty, Lorraine eventually realizes there’s something very wrong about this union, even if she can’t quite put her finger on it… To the relief of Marty and moviegoers everywhere.
