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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
