The 10 Most Annoying Movie Couples
Every now and then, a certain movie comes out with a cracking plot, the right twists and turns and a romantic couple you actually can stomach instead of feeling the urge to throw up in your popcorn bucket every time they swoon and smooch onscreen.
Think Annie and Alvy in Annie Hall, Elizabeth and Bertie in The King’s Speech, Ennis and Jack in Brokeback Mountain and those “church-tongue” kissers Robbie and Julia in The Wedding Singer. Yeah, there are, thankfully, quite a few.
And then, there are the movie couples we love to hate. There are a lot of them out there too. They’re either sickening, overly romantic, too damn beautiful or just plain creepy. They kissed and you lost two hours of your life watching them with gritted teeth and head rage.
Here are the top ten worst on-screen couples of all time. If you prefer your movie viewing to be sans schmaltz, lacking a ‘will-they-won’t-they’ plot line or having you ponder the morality of love then make it a point to never watch these movies and these on-screen couples – ever. Adorable? No. Annoying? Oh, yes!
10. John and Jane Smith from Mr. and Mrs. Smith
The movie that broke up an existing Hollywood marriage and created the painful and vexing portmanteau Branjelina. Idiotic mayhem and characters with no charisma that mumble their way through assassination plots and couples council sessions.
9. Marty McFly and Lorraine Baines in Back to the Future
“This is all wrong. I don’t know what it is. But when I kiss you, it’s like I’m kissing…my brother.” No Lorraine, you’re actually kissing your son. This is one time-travelling twist on the Oedipus story we could do without.
