Celebrate the oddity of love’s expression that is Valentine’s Day with Yahoo! Movie’s look at the 10 most mismatched movie couples.
Dan Aykroyd & Rosie O’Donnell
Exit to Eden – 1994
“Exit to Eden” was a dark, romantic novel by “Interview With a Vampire” author Anne Rice about bondage and S&M. Who better, then, to turn it into a movie than the creator of “Mork and Mindy?” An even better question: what movie executive thought that the formula for box office gold was putting Dan Aykroyd and Rosie O’Donnell in skimpy studded leather outfits? As the comic relief they are painfully unfunny, and not even the kind of painful that a dominatrix would enjoy.
Also making the list are painful pairs like Hayden Christiansen and Natalie Portman (I adore her, but he is Gore-like in his woodenness), and the laughably bad Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck coupling in Gigli.Ã‚Â A couple of the movie couples feel almost like “We can’t come up with couple 9 and 10 – throw some forgettable pair in.”Ã‚Â Otherwise, it’s dirty-laundry comforting to see where others agree with your feelings.
