Julie doesn't like to see people _____ on the screen.
(A) kiss (B) kissed (C) have kissed (D) to kiss
Option A is correct. But what's wrong with option B? I think option B is grammatically correct, isn't it?
But imagine a film like this: the scene is a Thanksgiving party when all the family have come together - even Great Aunt Mabel from overseas. When she arrives she insists on kissing all her grand-nephews and -nieces. The scene of her arrival shows a line of unfortunate children waiting to be kissed, some with a handful of Kleenex at the ready, and one hiding under the stairs. Then you could say "Julie doesn't like to see people kissed..."; it's an elided form of "doesn't like to see people being kissed".
Otherwise whitemoon is right.
Irrelevant thought: hot/cool - interesting contrast...
