This week’s prompt for TGBOL is for our favourite on-screen kisses… not a topic that’s particularly designed for me. So with my usual disregard for the rules, and tongue (my own) firmly in cheek, I will instead give you my Top 5 worst kisses… because Hollywood absolutely has to cram some “romance” into even the most ridiculous of situations!
Drum roll please!
5 – Howard the Duck and Lea Thompson… in her bikini panties, on the bed, no less…
4 – Tom Hanks and Elizabeth Perkins in Big… it’s a beautiful farewell kiss, tender and loving… and then you remember that he’s a 12 year old boy in a man’s body
3 – A little more anthropomorphic bestiality for you… it’s Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes, awkwardly kissing scientist-ape Zira goodbye
2 – It’s Lea Thompson again! This time, kissing her son, Marty McFly, in Back to the Future. This at least had the grace to try and play it for laughs, but still…
And the undisputed number one…
1 – it’s family relations once again, in The Empire Strikes Back. A peck on the cheek from Leia in Star Wars becomes something a little more full-bodied in Empire, when she grabs (her brother) Luke by the lips… with Han and Chewie watching on too. Remember her line when Luke tells her they’re related at the end of Return of the Jedi – “somehow I’ve always known”. Really?
So, now I suggest you take yourself off to the other participants’ blogs for some mind bleach, and an altogether more romantic take on this challenge 🙂
Until next week!
