Chemistry quiz

A Yahoo article today lists The 10 Most Mismatched Movie Couples. What do you think?

I haven't seen a lot of these, but I definitely would take exception to one. They list Harrison Ford and Anne Heche in Six Days, Seven Nights. It wasn't my favorite movie ever, but I did enjoy it. And though they didn't burn up the screen, I enjoyed their relationship.

But I totally agree with the choice of Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman in assorted bad Star Wars installments. Or maybe it's not their chemistry that left me cold. Maybe it was that I didn't care about her, I absolutely loathed him (I know this is somewhat appropriate since he turns into Darth later, but what's supposed to keep me watching in the meantime?), and I pretty much hated all three of the later installments as much as I loved the first three.

And some romantic movies with totally hot chemistry imho:

-Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in assorted good Star Wars installments

-Eric Stoltz and Mary Stuart Masterson in Some Kind of Wonderful

-Molly Ringwald and Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club

Showing my age here.

-Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline in French Kiss

What are some of your favorites, chemistry-wise?

And if you're a youngling: Have you watched any 1980s teen flicks? Did you like them and "get" them or do you just chuckle and find them quaint?
