When the 2007 film, The Bucket List, was released, it got many people thinking about what they would put on their own to-do list before they die. The film highlighted Jack Nicholson as the super wealthy, Edward Cole, that had the financial backing that comes with being a hospital-corporation head. While some of the bucket list items are accessible to all (find the joy in your life, help a complete stranger, laugh until you cry, etc…), the rest are outlandishly expensive. For those that can’t simply jump on a private jet to go on a safari or drive a motorcycle on the Great Wall of China, there is another Hollywood bucket list that features items that are completely accessible to all.
Hollywood is filled with some moments in film that have become iconic and instantly recognizable. There are some that would be a little difficult to recreate, since you’d be hard pressed to find a yellow brick road and skip along wearing Dorothy’s iconic red slippers and your wife might think you’re crazy if you start hacking away at the bathroom door with an ax while yelling, “Here’s Johnny.” However, there are some iconic film scenes that can be recreated with relative ease and minimal cost.
Check out our list of 10 iconic moments in film that you have to recreate before you die, and grab a camera and hit the road. Take snapshots of your film recreation moments, and keep it as a reminder of your completed Hollywood bucket list.
10 Upside Down Spiderman Kiss
When Tobey Maguire took on the role of Spiderman, fans wondered how he would portray the love story between him and Mary Jane Watson, played by Kirsten Dunst. They got their answer during the iconic upside down kiss in the rain, which is a definite must-do recreation scene before you die. While it may take a bit of ingenuity and skill, it can be mastered as long as your partner makes sure to give little breaks in between kisses so you don’t drown. During filming Maguire talked about how tricky the kiss was to master, stating, “There was rain pouring up or down my nose. I couldn’t breathe and I was gasping for breath out of the corner of Kirsten’s mouth.”

The scene can be recreated with ease, as long as you have access to a slick wood floor surface and some lip sync skills. Amp it up with some of the iconic props in the film, and make sure to blast the song during your Cruise recreation.
