... I keep blogging about pop culture books and movies. Obviously, I'm busily and importantly attempting to finish a draft conference paper that is due next month so I'm distracted by just about anything and everything that isn't copyright law. One of my weekend distractions was the incessant replaying of Star Wars movies on TV over the weekend that my hubby was watching. I couldn't stop him because it was Father's Day and he deserved a treat. But even he agreed that one of the worst romantic couples ever put together in movie history was Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen in Star Wars, episodes 2 and 3. The lack of chemistry between them is truly awe-inspiring, particularly given that they are both very good actors in their own right.
This got me to thinking about some of the best and worst movie pairings of all time. I think the best for me will always be Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole in How to Steal a Million. And while I STILL haven't seen Water for Elephants, I suspect that the pairing of Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson (she's almost old enough to be his mother and actually played his mother in an earlier film) will be amongst the worst.
What are your thoughts on the best and worst movie pairings of all time?
