Who are your top 3 favorite couples in film?
They have to be characters, not actors.
It can be from movies, TV or even the Stage.

Mine are:
3. Benedick and Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare))
2. Jim and Pam (The Office)
1. Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man (series))

(I'll do something more masculine later... Like:
"Name the best Pitching rotation in Baseball history!" :cool: Lol!)

As a side point...
Lets address which Actor/Actress combo you, the public, enjoy more.
That will be answered via a POLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay, Pole!

Go!

In no particular order, because I can't/won't choose favorites. ;o)

This question made me think of a number of really impressive couples...but all of them were in novels. It seems like movies tend to avoid depicting strong preexisting relationships. After pouring through my entire DVD collection, I only came up with two.

1) Ian Malcolm and Sarah Harding from The Lost World: Jurassic Park
2) Christian and Satine from Moulin Rouge!

Most of my movies are not romantic dramas, so relationships are not common, and rarely are they a focus of the plot.

If I could pick just one relationship from my books, it would definitely be Spencer and Sarah Silverman from Robert B. Parker's novels. They loved one anther's differences, discussed deep philosophical concepts, and respected each other's areas of expertise.

Harold and Maude lol yes, I need to rewatch that wacky flick.

It isn't 3 and it in no particular order (so I am breaking both rules -_-):

Olive's mom and dad in Easy A. (They are fun, and funny, and just what I would love to be.)
Belle and Beast from Beauty and the Beast (i like the symbolism)
Sam and Flint from Cloudy with a Change of Meatballs (so cute but so awkward)
Ellie and Carl from Up (it has been said before by others, but the first 10-15 minutes of this movie has a better love story than most movies I see)
Kate and Leopold from Kate and Leopold (more Leopold than Kate)
Jonathan and Sara from Serendipity (the way everything plays out)

My picks aren't written in stone for me, but here they are for the time being:

(1) Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in 'Roman Holiday';
(2) Jack Skellington and Sally in 'The Nightmare Before Christmas';
(3) Tyler Durden and Marla Singer in 'Fight Club'

And for disclosure regarding the poll, I chose #3 - Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn (tough one because the romance between Bogart and Bacall is legendary, too).

Agreed! They instantly put this big grin on my face.

#1 - The couple from Before Sunrise and Before Sunset

Everything else is so blahblahblah!
Ironic how you say everything else is blahblahblah because those movies are basically just endless dialogues. But I know what you mean and I agree. They're the NF's wet dream, aren't they?
