The Scene: After Spider-man (Tobey Maguire) has saved Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), she thanks him with an upside-down kiss.

The Scene: An argument in the rain between Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) gets a twist when Noah reveals he wrote her love letters she never received.

Boogie Nights (1998)

The Scene: The 'shagging a porn star' fantasy comes true for Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg) as he's auditioned by Rollergirl (Heather Graham).

Dr No (962)

The Scene: Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) emerges from the sea, and sets the standard for nearly fifty years of Bond girls.
