Married Couples On Film | Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman Married Couples On Film
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
In which films: Days of Thunder, Far and Away, Eyes Wide Shut

Technically, Cruise and Kidman were only married for two of their three screen collaborations, but you have to give them credit for going back time and again when the critics tended to sneer at their efforts. They actually worked well together onscreen: even if it's hard to see much connection through the fog of Oirish accents in Far and Away, the problems with Eyes Wide Shut weren't due to a lack of intimacy between the two. If anything, it's quite the opposite: the feeling of getting drawn into the darkest and most disturbing parts of their characters' troubled marriage is what makes the film such a tough watch.

Can't believe they forgot Bogie and Bacall, that's like getting rid of the word smolder when it comes to couples. " You know how to whistle don't you Steve, you just put your lips together and blow." I don't agree with the chemistry rating between Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith though, I thought they had great chemistry in their movies. I didn't think that Nicole Kidman or Tom Cruise had much chemistry onscreen simply because she looked like she could break him in half, (the beginning love scene in DOT, is just funny when she SLAMS him into the way practically picking him up) besides he had to stand on a box to film scenes with her. I didn't think that Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin had much chemistry together compared to oh say Kim and Mickey Rourke in 9 1/2 Weeks. I thought that Courtney Cox and David Arquette had some good chemistry in the Scream movies. Also Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn (not married but might as well be) had good chemistry in Overboard and Swing Shift. Read More

I agree. The Big Sleep, anyone? Read More

The legitimacy of this entire list is negated by the fact that Bogart and Bacall have somehow been skipped. Read More

Posted on Thursday September 24, 2009, 11:15 by laulau1404
Come on Empire, you can do better your research than that! Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci were also together in Come mi vuoi, Le plaisir (et ses petits tracas), L'appartement (which was remade as Wicker Park), Le pacte des loups (Brotherhood of the wolf) and Dobermann. Read More

10 Sarah Michelle Gellar - Freddie Prinze Jr.?
Posted on Wednesday September 23, 2009, 21:43 by onursmg
How come they are not on the list?! They met on the set of "I Know What You Did Last Summer" in 1997. Sarah was also in Freddie's hit "She's All That" movie in 1999. They were also together in "Scooby-Doo" in 2002 and "Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed" in 2004. If you are doing something, do it fair. Read More

Sorry to report that Irreversible fact isn't unknown, it's obvious on 2nd watch and for many, what makes the 2nd viewing even more shocking. Thankfully I knew this already but really, why the spoiler for those who haven't yet seen it even once?!?! Read More

13 Taylor And Burton.
Posted on Wednesday September 23, 2009, 14:26 by joanna likes films
I think my favourite on-screen married couple is Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. In Cleopatra, I could see the chemisty sizzing when they first lock eyes during the film. They did a lot of films together that made their relationship very intresting to watch. Paul Newman and his wife are second for being such a long-running couple and also have that instant chemisty.

Little known sick fact about Irreversible:   Cassel in fact doesn't kill the rapist. He kills a totally innocent man. The real rapist can be seen standing in the background. Read More

I can't believe Bogey and Bacall have been omitted Read More

17 what about eastwood?
Posted on Tuesday September 22, 2009, 20:22 by Symesie Boy
Surely you should have included Clint and that blonde-maggot-faced-actingly-challenged thing he appeared with in the Any Which Way brace of films and Bronco Billy, or whatever it was called. I'll do it for you, she was rubbish and was the only bad thing in a couple of great films, their chemistry was nothing short of bad. But Clyde was good. Very good. Read More

Cassell and Bellucci were also both on this: althou gh I can't remember if they actually shared any screen time. It was a fun movie, must see what the DVD goes for in Amazon atm. Read More

The most famous teaming of Cassel and Bellucci before Irréversible was French action extravaganza Dobermann. Why stop at ten couples? What about Dennis Quaid & Meg Ryan, Woody Allen & Mia Farrow, Paul Bettany & Jennifer Connelly, Brad & Angie... Read More
