Thanks Feebs11. But I still don't quite get the meaning of big/large kiss. Could you elaborate a bit?

It's an idiomatic expression hence the meanings of the individual words is irrelevant. It means oversized as a metaphor.My Big Fat Greek Wedding
A Big Fat Lie
He said it with his big fat tongue in his big fat cheek
I guess it is so called the metaphorical usage of adjectives. Maybe this metaphorical usage of "big fat" has become more popular because of the successful movie "My big fat Greek wedding"-just my guess.Try to feel the similarity by comparing the original meaning of big fat when it modifies a person.

It’s also a metaphor, but sounds kinda sick.
my question to this is - how do you interpret
Goodman a big, fat kiss
?

is it something that someone who is in love would say, or someone who is not taking a girl seriously?
It's more like something grandma would give the baby.

"Come here, honey. Come and give your grandma a big, fat kiss."

You could also say something like, "He walked right up to me a gave me a big, fat kiss."

If you liked him, you'd be pleased. If you didn't like him, you'd be disgusted.
