I was flipping through a magazine the other day and saw an article about romantic couples onscreen. The article stated that the following were the most favorite couples:
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere
Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks
I'm sure these pairings are popular, but the most favorite? What about the classics like Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy? Or Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? And let's not forget about the movies made outside Hollywood. I'll watch any Bollywood movie that pairs Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.
I continued to skim the article to see what made these couples the most favorite. The writer suggested that these were the most favorite onscreen couples because they appeared together in more than one successful romantic movie.
Well... pfft. That's no way to judge. These couples may very well deserve to be called favorites, but for different reasons.
A favorite onscreen couple may only have made one movie together, but it's the kind of movie you want to watch over and over again.
A favorite onscreen couple has chemistry. It's magic when they're onscreen. They make you believe they should be together. They may or may not have a happy ending, but you are emotionally invested in their journey.
Which romantic couple onscreen is your favorite?
