Couch Potato Pickings | Cruel Intentions and best screen smooches

Showing on E4 tonight at 11.05pm

Screen kisses, don’t you just love ’em? Cinematic smooches feature in so many films, but give it some thought – how many can you actually visualise?

Romantic movie moments are very easy to recall, but let’s face it, unless it’s an upside down Spider-Man smooch, or a Lady and the Tramp cartoon kiss or a Wedding Singer ‘pay attention, let me show you how it’s done’ snogette, the on-screen meeting of mouths is more often than not upstaged by more memorable surrounding detail, such as Sam and Molly’s slippery, wet clay-coated flesh, Bridget’s lack of clothes on that snowy London street, Holly Golightly’s soggy ginger puss, or Rose and Jack
Sarah Michelle Gellar

Tonight’s film is a contemporary update of Les Liaisons Dangereuses set in New York, about an affluent teenage girl who wagers her philandering stepbrother that she will sleep with him if he can seduce a virginal girl.

It’s a smart satire and an entertaining watch, but is it deserving of a best screen kiss win? Check out the celebrated snog scene here:

I suspect there might have been an overriding social demographic leading that MTV Movie Award judging process, what do you think?
