    Default 10 most mismatched movie couples

    10 Most Mismatched Movie Couples



    10. Nick Nolte & Julia Roberts
    I Love Trouble - 1994

    In the early 90's, Julia came out of nowhere to become the biggest female star in the world. Nick was named People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1992. So why not pair them together in a screwball comedy about dueling reporters? Because he was nearly twice her age, and both of them appeared to be painfully aware of that fact.





    9. Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez
    Gigli - 2003

    Ah, "Gigli." The makers of "Ishtar" thank you for replacing their movie title as the funny word that means "embarrassing flop." Ben and J.Lo met on the set of their ill-conceived gangster-meets-lesbian love story, and the tabloids were packed with stories about them every week thereafter. Still, real life sparks don't always translate to the screen, and the movie's failure killed the couple's future.




    8. Harrison Ford & Anne Heche
    Six Days, Seven Nights - 1998
    When Anne Heche was cast in this romantic action movie, she was a little-known but well-respected actress. By the time the film hit screens, everybody knew her as Ellen DeGeneres' girlfriend. But even without the real world intruding, there's no way anyone would buy the 29-year-old Heche and 56-year-old Ford ending up together, no matter how much time they spent on a desert island.




    7. Kevin Spacey & Kate Bosworth
    Beyond the Sea - 2004

    The real Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee were quite an odd couple. He was a balding singer from the Bronx; she was a 16-year-old movie star. But somehow they made it work. In the movie of Darin's life, however, Spacey and Bosworth were completely unbelievable. It didn't help that Spacey was eight years older than the actual Darin ever lived to be. At least his hairline fit the part.




    6. Hayden Christensen & Natalie Portman
    Star Wars - Episode II and Episode III - 2002/2005

    After watching the uncomfortable scenes with Natalie Portman and 10-year-old Jake Lloyd in The Phantom Menace, Star Wars fans everywhere thought, "It can't get worse than this." Oh, how little they knew. For the next two prequels, they were faced with Portman and Christensen stiffly reciting George Lucas' leaden dialogue. When the giant lizard Obi-Wan rides is more convincing than their romance, it's enough to make you want to scream "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"




    5. Madonna & Adriano Giannini
    Swept Away - 2002

    The original Italian 1974 film "Swept Away," was an examination of class and gender issues. Guy Ritchie's 2002 remake is an examination of his wife's dedication to Pilates. Watching this movie makes you not only question why Madonna would fall for Adriano Giannini's crude and abusive fisherman, but why she thought it'd be a good idea to make another movie with her spouse after having already bombed with her previous husband Sean Penn in "Shanghai Surprise."




    4. Dan Aykroyd & Rosie O'Donnell
    Exit to Eden - 1994

    "Exit to Eden" was a dark, romantic novel by "Interview With a Vampire" author Anne Rice about bondage and S&M. Who better, then, to turn it into a movie than the creator of "Mork and Mindy?" An even better question: what movie executive thought that the formula for box office gold was putting Dan Aykroyd and Rosie O'Donnell in skimpy studded leather outfits? As the comic relief they are painfully unfunny, and not even the kind of painful that a dominatrix would enjoy.




    3. Justin Guarini & Kelly Clarkson
    From Justin to Kelly - 2003
    Casting the first and second place finishers of "American Idol" in the lead roles of a movie is sort of like letting the "Top Chef" winners perform your appendectomy. You would think being on a TV show together would make both Justin and Kelly comfortable being in the presence of both a camera and each other, but they look lost without Simon around to berate them. At least the dismal failure of the movie insured that we wouldn't be subjected to "From Jordin to Sanjaya."




    2. Eddie Murphy & Eddie Murphy
    Norbit - 2006
    It took 25 years of hard work for Eddie Murphy to go from "Saturday Night Live" cast member to Oscar-nominated thespian. But it took just 2-1/2 minutes of the "Norbit" trailer to kill any hope he ever had of being taken seriously again. As both the nerdy title character and his overweight and domineering wife Rasputia, Murphy proved he can be supremely unpleasant no matter what size or gender.




    1. Woody Allen & Any Actress 20+ Years Younger than Him
    It was always part of the comedy in Woody Allen's early movies how a bespectacled, awkward guy like him could end up with gorgeous women. Unfortunately, no one ever let Woody in on the joke. And by the time he was casting women like Téa Leoni (31 years younger than him) and Julia Roberts (32), it really stopped being funny. The most absurd: when his character in "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion" is seduced by Charlize Theron (four decades younger than Woody).

    How about any actor & any actress 20+ years younger than him?

    Grace Kelly looked ridiculous with Gary Cooper in High Noon.
    Kim Novak looked ridiculous with Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo.

    Those are two examples that immediately come to my mind, because I'm stuck on old films.

    I don't think anyone else will agree, but I always thought Richard Gere and Julia Roberts were mismatched in Pretty Woman. HATED that movie and thought they had 0 chemistry.

    That one didn't bother me as much. Knowing that she likes them that old in real life made it more believable..if that makes any sense

    I agree. I liked the movie but the chemistry between Julia and Richard was not there.

    Halle Berry and Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day

    Actually I can't remember one movie where Halle had chemistry with any of her costars.

    Kate Hudson and Matt Dillon had little to no chemistry in You Me and Dupree. I didn't buy that they were this happily married couple; the chemistry between Kate and Owen was electric, so when Kate and Matt aren't getting along and are on the verge of splitting up, I wasn't rooting for them to get back together ; there was no reason to. I was just waiting for Kate to jump Owens bones the entire time.

    And there was ZERO chemistry between Matthew Broderick and Nicole Kidman in Stepword Wives. Hell, that was just painful to watch.

    can't remember which movies but there are a few Audrey Hepburn films where the matching is just completely wrong. Audrey and Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina is a one...
