The Most Awkward On-Screen Love Scenes In Movies


This film has the distinction of being the only mainstream American comedy to feature a tender embrace between a woman (Lea Thompson) and a man-sized, anthropomorphic duck. Howard may have "intense, animal magnetism," (yikes) but we could have done without the awkward, scantily clad kiss.

Howard the Duck

You should know your film is going off the rails when your love scene includes the line, "It's turkey time. Gobble gobble." Shockingly, that’s not even the most awkward thing about the film, which tried to capitalize on the “Bennifer” craze and failed spectacularly.


Nite Owl (Patrick Wilson) and Silk Spectre II (Malin Akerman) join forces for some celebratory sex after an evening of crime-fighting. The really weird part is that they make love in Nite Owl's "Owlship" vehicle to the strains of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," a song that's more sad than sexy.


This 1997 film’s romantic couple is played by two fresh-faced actors, Chyler Leigh (years before Grey's Anatomy) and Christopher Khayman Lee. The multiple kissing scenes become a new level of cringe once you find out the actors are brother and sister in real life.

The film depicts Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley's character's first time — and never before has four minutes of cinema felt like such an eternity. While it is very sweet, it is so realistic you feel like a voyeur of a moment that shouldn’t be shared.
