Couples of any race/gender who had very strong chemistry on screen, and were thus exciting to watch; please list.

In light of criticism on the Gatsby threads that Tobey&Leo have more chemistry than Leo and Carey, and that affects the movie, what couples of any race or gender improved a movie because they were hottt together?

Kathleen Turner and William Hurt, "Body Heat".

R1, Did they fuck off camera as well? Was either screwing any of the rest of the cast or crew or "powers that be" to get those roles?

Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder in 1980s "Superman" films. Well, the first two, anyway.

They made the Clark/Lois/Superman dynamic funny, romantic, and immensely entertaining, and that's no easy task.

Fred and Ginger, at least when they were dancing.

When they stood there and talked, not so much, but when they danced they melted in to each other.

I get the gender comment, OP, but was it necessary to mention we could overlook race as well? There aren't nearly as many racists here as you and the homophobic, murderous thug troll think.

R14, There are many movies that I haven't had a chance to see but hope to some day. These include many of the "Tyler Perry" romances, and other non-mainstream flicks. I was secretly hoping that someone reading this thread had seen a broader variety of films, both past and present than I had, and could make some recommendations. As proof except for "Mohicans," I've never seen any of R-13's list.

I certainly did not mean to offend anyone for how I phrased my original query.

Great one, r1.

Kate and Leo in "Titanic"? Really? I thought they totally lacked chemistry.

Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen in "Love With The Proper Stranger".

Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver in "The Year of Living Dangerously".

Of course, Stallone and Kurt Russell in "Tango and Cash".

by Anonymousreply 1805/13/2013

For those who think Clooney lacks chemistry with women onscreen, I think he and Jennifer Lopez had great chemistry in Out of Sight (1998).

Tom Cruise and that Italian woman in Rainman

by Anonymousreply 2509/14/2013

r24, agree with you about "Roman Holiday," which is, inmho, the best mainstream Hollywood romantic comedy ever.

Also Audrey and Peter Finch in "The Nun's Story." Their unexpressed, yet unmistakable attraction to each other is not acted upon,which makes it more powerful.

by Anonymousreply 2609/14/2013

The only person Jodie Foster had chemistry with in "Silence of the Lambs" was her co-FBI roommate friend who said "God damn, Clarice" and she said "He knew her".

The was the only person I found she connected with at all in that movie.

by Anonymousreply 2709/14/2013

I thought all three leads in the original "The Hangover" had excellent chemistry.

Pity they did more.

Jennifer Aniston and Ben Affleck actually had a ton in that shitty movie they were in together. It was called Valentine's Day I think.

Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock had amazing off screen chemistry promoting whatever movie they were in together years ago.

Cybill Shepherd and Robert DeNiro in "Taxi Driver."

by Anonymousreply 3909/14/2013

R35 I got the impression that the backstory in Shame was that the Fassbender and Mulligan characters were sexually abused as kids; so chances are that they slept together at one point.

James Wilby alone or with others, in Maurice

Ellen Burstyn and Kris Kristofferson, in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider, in Last Tango in Paris

I know they are not a couple, they dislike each other throughout most of the film, but Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell had chemistry together in The Eagle.

Just a few: Sea of Love-- Al Pacino, Ellen Barkin. No Way Out-- Kevin Costner, Sean Young. Movie with Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro where they were commuters from the NYC suburbs into the city and fall in love .(Can't remember the title,obviously!)

by Anonymousreply 4609/22/2013

R46, Falling in Love? Never saw this one.

And Sea of Love is a very good example.. The scene in the grocery store.

Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly in "Bound"

Lucinda Jenny and Harvey Keitel in "Thelma and Louise"--great flirting in a small scene at the roadhouse

There is a German film called "3" where a bisexual man innocently starts a relationship with a straight couple, unbeknownst to each other. The sex scenes between the men are porn hot and there is little to no chemistry with the actress in the film from them.

by Anonymousreply 4809/22/2013

From recent TV, Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon have ridiculously hot on-screen chemistry. Completely blown away by them.

To a lesser extent, so do Misha Collins and Jensen Ackles. I think Collins is really unattractive, but they keep winning "favorite couple" polls in major media polls like E! and being mentioned in TV Guide, which surprises me. I'm sure some of that is fangurl rigging, but it's still surprising that media outlets are getting in on it.

I like neither of them separately, but Emily Blunt and Matt Damon had remarkably good chemistry in the Adjustment Bureau. Only think that made it worth watching.

by Anonymousreply 5409/22/2013

Eusebio Poncela & Antonio Banderas in "Law of Desire". VERY realistic depiction of a toxic self-destructive unstable gay couple who literally can't stay away from each other until it's too late to extract themselves from the shit they've stirred up.

Do you ever wonder if Almodovar ever wishes he were straight?
