Top 10 Teen Movie Kisses

#10: The Ferris Wheel Kiss
“Love, Simon” (2018)

Whew! Don’t think we’ll forget that one anytime soon. Welcome to MsMojo and today we’ll be counting down the Top 10 Teen Movie Kisses.

For this list, we’re looking at the kisses in teen flicks that made us swoon.

#10: The Ferris Wheel Kiss
“Love, Simon” (2018)

The setting can make or break how romantic a kiss is, so it’s important to pick the right location to maximize the feels. At the end of the movie, Simon tells his mystery crush that he’ll be waiting for him at the carnival, and the two meet on the ferris wheel. It’s the prime location for his crush to unveil his identity since onlookers gather to see Simon land his man. The movie plays up the tension, as his crush leaves Simon waiting until the last minute. But when his friend, Bram, shows up it’s worth the wait and they share a steamy kiss while the crowd cheers.

#9: The Hot Tub Kiss
“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” (2018)

Even though it only came out in 2018, the hot tub kiss in this Netflix phenomenon became an instantly iconic one in the teen movie hall of fame. While on a class ski trip, Lara Jean takes a chance and accepts Peter’s risqué invitation to hang out in the hot tub. Ever the good girl, Lara Jean jumps into the water wearing her nightgown. But she’s ready to break the rules when Peter gives her a very steamy kiss that’s even hotter than the water’s temperature! This one definitely warrants an instant replay.

#8: The Bedroom Kiss
“Twilight” (2008)

While Bella and Edward undoubtedly have the strangest courtship on our list, (him admitting to watching her sleep is not exactly cute), the movie makes us look past that with their undeniable chemistry. After Edward sneaks into her room and admits his feelings for her, they get carried away in a passionate embrace after some intense anticipation. As things escalate, Edward throws himself across the room telling Bella, “I can't ever lose control with you.” It’s the line of all lines and one of the most memorable moments of the series.

#7: The Prom Kiss
“She’s All That” (1999)

When Zack, played by Freddie Prinze Jr., foolishly made a bet to woo the school’s resident artsy loner Laney, played by Rachael Leigh Cook, he didn’t think that he would actually fall for her. But of course he did, it’s a rom-com! After she finds out about the bet and has her heart broken, Zack comes and finds her on prom night. He apologizes for his behavior and ruining her big night. Laney forgives him as the two dance in her backyard and she gives him the kiss of a lifetime. The

#6: The Horcrux Kiss
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -: Part 2” (2011)

We watched Hermione and Ron grow up over the course of eight movies, but at times it seemed like they would never actually get together. But luckily for us, the high stakes of looking for Voldemort’s horcruxes finally allowed these crazy kids to act on their feelings for one another when they both moved in for a kiss. It was the culmination of everything we’ve been waiting for and the moment was perfectly executed when they broke apart and laughed playfully. Their friendship and respect for each other shone, making the moment all the more romantic. The kiss in the book may have been even better, but who’s counting.

#5: The Paintball Date Kiss
“10 Things I Hate About You” (1999)

We’ve never had as much fun watching two people who hate each other fall in love. Kat and Patrick have one of the best courtships in teen movie history, and their kiss at a paintball park is still one we want to recreate. Still showing off their rivalry, the couple played an intense game of smashing paint balloons on one another before falling in the hay and into each other’s arms. But even after an extensive kiss, Kat was still on her A-game and smashed another balloon into Patrick’s head after they broke apart. Playful and cute, this kiss is definitely the most fun on our list.

#4: The Consolation Prize Kiss
“Bring It On” (2000)

Popular head cheerleader, Torrance, and the alternative new kid, Cliff, didn’t seem like they’d be a natural fit, but this odd couple is one of the best pairings. With their natural chemistry and banter-y flirtation, it wasn’t hard to root for them despite him being the brother of one of her squad mates. That’s why it’s so satisfying when Torrance finally kisses Cliff at the big cheer competition. We love to see our heroine take charge and it felt both spontaneous and earned. She may have lost the trophy, but she got her man.

#3: The Birthday Cake Kiss
“Sixteen Candles” (1984)

Everyone knows that a girl’s sixteenth birthday is an important one, but for Molly Ringwald’s character, Sam, it was almost ruined by her family forgetting it was her big day since it was overshadowed by her sister’s wedding. But thank god for Jake Ryan, the adorably perfect jock, who saved the day by rescuing Sam from the wedding. Jake topped himself further by getting her a birthday cake and then giving her the kiss of a lifetime before she even blew the candles out. Jake proved that the most romantic gesture isn’t always the grandest one but the one that shows real thoughtfulness. We’re still gushing at how sweet this one was.

#2: The Baseball Field Kiss
“Never Been Kissed” (1999)

Just like the “Love, Simon” kiss but with even bigger stakes, the baseball field kiss from “Never Been Kissed” tugs at our heartstrings because of how vulnerable Josie is. After writing a newspaper article where she outs herself as being an undercover reporter, she invites Sam, the teacher she was crushing on, to give her the first kiss she’s been waiting for in front of a huge crowd at a baseball game. It’s a high-pressure scenario and just when it seemed like he wouldn’t show up, he swoops in at the last second. The kiss is captured with a sweeping 360 degrees shot and it validated the inner Josie in us all.

Before we unveil our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

The Spring Fling Kiss

“Mean Girls” (2004)

The Strategic Kiss

“The Hunger Games” (2012)

The Staircase Kiss

“Clueless” (1995)

#1: The Capulet Party & Pool Kiss
“Romeo + Juliet” (1996)

Upon locking eyes with each other through a fish tank at a crowded costume party, it was game over for our ‘90s Romeo and Juliet. The doomed lovers had the most epic case of love at first sight. Romeo stole Juliet away for a moment of privacy and kissed her in an elevator. But that wasn’t enough and he later snuck outside her window, which led to an even more swoon-worthy kiss when they embraced in the pool. Everything about the sweeping sequence was lush and cinematic, and so convincing that it kinda made us believe in love at first sight too.
I totally agree with this list.
