The Most Awkward Movie Kisses
The film clinches that just don't inspire us...

Movies are great for romance: a well-chosen date movie can get your relationship off to a flying start, and a good movie snog can be just the thing to get you moving in for a first kiss. But what about the bad movie snogs? Here are some of the least successful clinches in cinema history, and our attempt to explain what went wrong.

The Most Awkward Movie Kisses

Where was that Admit it cynical!! Read More
