MSNBC’s Erik Lundegaard has a pretty good piece here about the best screen kisses, but unless I read it too fast he left out a whopper:
That late-in-the-second-act moment in Hustle & Flow when Terrence Howard walks back into the house and plants a real passionate one on Tarij P. Henson. A great kiss because it’s not about down-on-the-floor passion as much as Howard’s D.J. charatcrer having finally recognized the love and the loyalty he’d been getting all along from Henson’s “Shug.” Which, of course, makes it very hot.
