Throwback To The 20 Most Iconic Couples In Cinema.

Several films have memorable special effects and stories, but the essential thing that makes films resist the passing of time are its main characters, specially when they conform an explosive and full of chemistry duo! Our favourites are #2, #5 and #11!

#20. Batman and Robin

No couple will ever make a better match than these two. And no, we are not just talking about Batman and Robin, we are talking about Adam West and Burt Ward‘s playing these roles. Not that Christian Bale and Michael Keaton have not done an exceptionally job when playing the role of Batman, though…

#19. Doc Brown and Marty McFly

Back to the Future is certainly a hilarious movie. To such an extent that no one ever noticed how weird it was that a teenager and a mad scientist were best friends. However, the natural chemistry between Christopher Lloyd and Michael Fox was quite helpful to avoid the focus from being on this uneven relationship.

#18. Bonnie and Clyde

The movie named after this couple, became very popular due to positive reviews and to the controversial subjects dealt with throughout the movie. More than 50 years have passed from the release of the movie and this couple remains as popular as they were at the beginning.

#17. Cheech and Chong

This hilarious duo topped the charts for a long time, and they also starred some great movies, beginning with Up in Smoke in 1978. They are still working these days, and people find the stoner’s humor quite entertaining.

#16. Woody and Buzz Lightyear

Well, this couple was Pixar’s great hit back in 1995. Even though they got off on the wrong foot, they became the best friends ever. The actors who voiced them, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, also remember them as their favorite projects.

#15. Chewbacca and Han Solo

Chewi and Han not only commanded the Millennium Falcon, they were also great partners. These characters emerged as the most popular characters on Star Wars: A New Hope. They appear on the sequel trilogy, too, and fans love them!

# 14. Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John were the perfect couple as the good girl and the bad boy in Grease, a musical with a catchy song  every now and then. The iconic duo will always be remembered for their great departure on Travolta’s car.

#13. Cameron Frye and Ferris Bueller

These two high-schoolers do know how to party, and how to play hooky! Even if they are not the actual Sausage Kings of Chicago, they felt like the kings of the world that day. And speaking of the king of the world, check #7!

#12. Thelma and Louise

Two girls, a road trip, and the story that turned Louise Sawyer (and Susan Sarandon) into feminist icons of their time. The touching ending to this story, definitely contributed to make this a memorable movie.

#11. Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield

No one thinks of Uma Thurman as John Travolta’s partner in Pulp Fiction, since we all know that his true partner in the movie was Samuel L. Jackson. This couple is the essence of Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece.

#10. Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee

Neither Frodo, nor Sam would have accomplished their mission of taking the ring to Mordor if they hadn’t had each other’s back. Gollum did also play an important role… as the third wheel of this relationship…

#9. Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne

This might be the most funny couple of all time. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels amused the audience on their idiotic adventures on Dumb and Dumber. They rocked the tuxedo outfit as no one in the history of Halloween costumes will ever do.

#8. Agent J and Agent K

It is impossible to forget the charm of this duo! Well, almost impossible, considering that they own a neuralyzer (whose purpose is to erase memory). Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are the right choice if you’re ever dealing with an unpleasant alien in New York.

#7. Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater

Rose and Jack made the public of Titanic feel as if they were flying, but any feeling of the kind will abandon the spectator to the end of the movie. However, Leo and Kate were never as close to be kings of the world!

#6. Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid

This is an iconic western and an iconic duo. And it is by far the most popular of Paul Newman and Robert Redford‘s collaborations. They might have been playing the role of criminals, but we all know that they were the heroes of this story.

#5. Detective James Carter and Yang Naing Lee

Rush Hour, the action comedy were this couple had its origins, is definitely hilarious. An intense movie, full of stunts and great jokes, was only the beginning for Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker

#4. Molly Jensen and Sam Wheat

Nothing like Ghost to shiver, especially during the clay scene, which is probably the most romantic scene in years. Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze were perfect to make the public feel that the eternity of love goes beyond the grave.

#3. Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy

This romance began back in 1975, and has always captivated us. A banjo player frog and a diva pig that have a love story with their ups-and-downs. Will these characters from The Muppets ever settle down?

#2. Ethan Tremblay and Peter Highman

Maybe the best mismatched friendship ever, Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis could not have been a better choice for this duo. They played their roles on Due Date in such an impressive way, that people disregarded critics’ opinions who had deemed the movie as a new Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

#1. Mister Spock and Captain James Kirk

There is no need to say that Leonard Nemoy and William Shatner are the best couple ever. No wonder these Star Trek besties starred dozens of TV episodes and six films!
