13 Most Awkward Movie Kisses, Rated

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the least awkward and 10 being the most.

When you share a kiss with someone you probably hope it's all rosey, with fireworks in the background and singing cherubs overhead. 

But the reality is most kisses are less than satisfactory. Some flat out suck, and others are just plain awkward. 

Luckily, YouTube channel WatchMojo.com selected a few onscreen awkward movie smooches so we can all take pleasure in other people's pain. Because when you're not the one involved in the awkward union, it's kinda funny. 

So watch these kisses, and try not to cringe. 

1. "Dumb and Dumber"

Note to self: Kissing is not eating someone's face off. 

Awkward scale: 7.5

2. "Me, Myself and Irene"

A tongue flick is never a good idea, but at least both parties are onboard. 

Awkward scale: 5 

3. "BASEketball"

The sudden kiss-stop is never a good way to end things. The during part doesn't look half bad though. 

Awkward scale: 3 

4. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"

OK, so,young love can be adorable, but there's way too much movement going on here. Calm down, folks! 

Awkward scale: 6

5. "Not Another Teen Movie"

Love knows no age, but there's just something a little off about this scene from "Not Another Teen Movie." That being said, both women totally seem to be into it. 

Awkward scale: 4

6. "Wet Hot American Summer"

Later in this cult classic, we find out that Elizabeth Banks' character "tastes like a burger," giving this scene a whole new level of awkwardity. Yeah, just made "awkwardity" a word. What?  

Awkward scale: 4

7. "Spider-Man"

Everyone thought the upside down kiss was a good idea after seeing this movie. But have you ever actually tried it? It's a lot of chin action. 

Awkward scale: 7

8. "Planet of the Apes"

Interspecies kissing wasn't a good idea in 1968.

Awkward scale: 8

9. "Planet of the Apes" (2001 remake)

And it still wasn't a good idea in 2001. 

Awkward scale: 8.5

10. "Wayne's World"

Sometimes a kiss can give you wings. But the aftermath of the fall is probably pretty awk. 

Awkward scale: 6

11. "Star Wars"

If you don't think this kiss looks awkward, it's probably because you haven't seen "Return of the Jedi" where [SPOILER] we learn the smoochers are actually brother and sister. Ouch. 

Awkward scale: 9

12. "Not Another Teen Movie"

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. 

Awkward scale: 9

13. "Back to the Future"

What could be more awkward than going back in time, and having your own mother fall for you?

Nothing. Nothing could be more awkward than that. 

Awkward scale: 10
