Whether you’ve got a man by your side or are happily embracing singledom, we can all appreciate the romance in a good old fashioned onscreen kiss. Slow and lingering or fast and hard, we love getting lost in lips that are larger than life. The best movie kisses are a thing of beauty, and we remember them long after the lights go on.

From the first tentative kisses in Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful to the This-Is-Why-Vampires-Are-Hot  lip lock in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, kisses are all over the map. Some are old school Hollywood romance, some are superheroes putting it out to make our knees weak, and some, well, just dial up our senses in all the right ways.
