Here are the top contenders for “worst movie kisses in history” chosen via survey through local video store, House of Video in the Tidewater area of Virginia. Although this list is for the worst kisses in movie history, these fiascos of romance are wonderfully bad and are guilty pleasures. View the accompanying slideshow and video attached and enjoy. Your comments are always welcomed so feel free to add your picks in the comment section below.
1. Eddie Murphy and Eddie Murphy in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps
Who can forget the slimey, smacky, drooly skin-crawler that was the kissing scene between Grandma Klump and Buddy in the sequel to the comedy hit The Nutty Professor. This wonderfully grotesque scene was so disgusting that the viewer had to laugh to avoid being ill. Unlike the other 2 contenders, this kiss was bad on purpose and fans loved it. This may be more accurately titled “the best worst movie kiss in history”.
2. Jack Nicholson and corpse in The Shining
Jack Nicholson, corpse; enough said.
3. Claire Danes and Steve Martin in Shopgirl
Although Shopgirl was a literary masterpiece and an insightful journey into the continuing evolution of the human heart, the love scenes between leads Steve Martin and Claire Danes were uncomfortable and lacked steam. The complex relationship of lonely, young department store sales clerk (Danes) and the older, wealthy entrepreneur (Martin) was an honest, captivating yet bleak ride but the on-screen kisses were almost ghostly in their lack of chemistry. Strangely, the lack of heat in the characters’ love scenes actually worked to create the film’s authenticity and was an asset not a liability; brilliant movie, dull smooches.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s make-out scene in BASEketball almost took the number 3 spot and is worth a look. It’s really gross, absolutely horrible and pretty funny. This mack-down is a personal favorite of many movie-goers and is worth the watch. See it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bagpwck8obc
