Unlikely On-Screen Couples

We have all seen them; the movie where the beautiful blonde falls for the overwhelmingly, plain best friend.

We have all seen them; the movie where the
beautiful blonde falls for the overwhelmingly, plain best friend.
From uncomfortable age gaps to nauseating lip
locks, Hollywood has made us fall in love with, or cringe with all manner of
odd-couples. With the release of
Delicacy Filmjuice takes a look at The Top Ten Unlikely On-screen Romances.

Steve Carell & Keira
Knightley – Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
(Main Picture)
Steve Carell’s
receding hair line and geeky charm has sparked the love interest of superstar Keira
Knightley, as they share one too many lip locks, and even an uncomfortable
encounter in between the sheets.

Vince Vaughn & Malin
Akerman – Couples Retreat

Awkwardly hovering
above Malin at an enormous 6 foot 5 inches, every screen shot of the unlikely
couple seems wildly out of proportion. Although Vince’s witty charm does
compensate for his mammoth frame and apparent beer belly, it also landed him
coveted spot 9 on the countdown.

Seth Rogan &
Katherine Heigl – Knocked Up

Seth Rogan’s character
Ben Stone is probably high fiving his stoned buddies right now, as accidently
getting a bombshell like Katherine Heigl pregnant is probably the biggest
achievement of his lazy, party loving life.

Shia Labeouf &
Megan Fox – Transformers

Shia probably had to
pay executive producer Steven Spielberg for the role, knowing this was his only
chance to ever lock lips with someone so far out of his league.

Kip & Lafawnduh
– Napolean Dynamite

The lesson we all
learned from ‘Napolean Dynamite,’ is that you, too, can transform from
the geeky, computer chat room nerd to a slick, doo-rag wearing, hip hop star
and bag ‘hot babes’ like the bootylicious Lafwanduh.

Jack Black &
Kate Winslet – The Holiday

After Leonardo Di Caprio
in ‘Titanic,’ Kate Winslet surely downgraded replacing the heart throb
with overweight Jack Black. Kate
is probably bitter that co-star Cameron Diaz was paired with Jude Law, which
sounds like a much more appetizing holiday.

Mike Myers &
Jessica Alba – The Love Guru

Dawning traditional Indian garb, complimented with an untamed beard, long
hair, and Italian chef style moustache, this is about as unbelievable as Mike
Meyer actually in an ashram.

Jack Nicholson
& Amanda Peet – Something’s Gotta Give

It is a nauseating to picture Jack Nicholson as an over 50 swinger
bedding woman half his age and as beautiful as Amanda Peet, but it leads you to
wonder what the first thing that has gotta give is.. His hip? Or maybe his
back? Most likely his libido.

Zac Efron &
Nikki Blondksy – Hairspray

Self obsessed Zac Efron falls for pleasantly plump Nikki Blondksy in ‘Hairspray,’
but let’s hope Zac is the one falling because vise versa, Nikki is sure to
crush his little frame.

Francois Damien
& Audrey Tautou – Delicacy

Francois Damien captures your heart with his gap-tooth smile and gentle
heart, and leaves you realizing that maybe it is the best friend, or the sweet
co-worker, that just might be your perfect unlikely romance.

Delicacy is available on Blu-ray & DVD from 6th August.
