10 Romantic Comedy Pairings I'd Like To See

Everyone loves a good romantic comedy, even guys. The problem is it’s rare that Hollywood actually produces a GOOD romantic comedy. So much of the quality of the movie rests directly on the shoulders of the two leads. It’s all about the casting people, and your boy @danborrelli is here to help. So I’ve put together a list of 10 rom com duos we NEED to see. Enjoy.

 

10.) STEVE CARELL AND HELENA BONHAM CARTER

It’s like Dharma and Greg but they’re both likable. Carell will play an uptight single father because of course he will and Helena Bonham Carter will be some weird artist type that’s a total free spirit. But not too crazy, not like lived in Vegas for a decade/belly dances at Burning Man crazy. More like dances in public/eats icing out of the jar crazy. The two of them will fight their love for each other until Steve Carell is offered a job in England and turns it down so he can have the family he’s always dreamed of. You’re welcome Amurrca!

 

9.) NICKI MINAJ AND A MR. POTATO HEAD DOLL

Did you ever that movie Escape from Witch Mountain? This is like that but instead of twins they’re soul mates. They have so much in common, style, celebrity, brain power. They only thing that could get in the way of their true feelings is their drive to have a solid career. But if movies have taught us anything, it’s romance trumps making a living.

 

8.) MICHAEL CERA AND DAME HELEN MIRREN

It’ll be like Harold and Maude but slightly less creepy. SLIGHTLY. What makes this movie work is that I totally buy Helen Mirren dating a 16 year old and I told buy Michael Cera AS a 16 year old. The kid doesn’t age!

 

7.) MITT ROMNEY AND SOFIA VERGARA

He’s a wealthy businessman on Wall Street and she’s a maid in Manhattan. When they get introduced to each other by Jennifer Lopez, sparks fly! Sofia helps ol’ straight-laced Mitch learn to lighten up a bit and Mitt helps Sofia realize how wonderful she truly is. Also he ends up laying off everyone she works with as well as 3000 other jobs in New York. Then he pulls his investments and they move to Switzerland. Where they live happily ever tax-exempt.

 

6.) SETH ROGEN AND “FLO” THE PROGRESSIVE AUTO INSURANCE SPOKESWOMAN

They’re lovable, goofy, and mildly annoying. And since every Progressive commercial is about Flo helping out a lovable loser, Seth Rogen would make the perfect love interest. They could even both work together at an insurance agency and carry on a secret romance until someone finds out and it threatens their jobs. But they can always find new work. The one thing they can’t find is a better deal…on love.

 

5.) BRYAN CRANSTON AND MILEY CYRUS

I chose this pair mainly because of their potential on-screen chemistry but also because I told Smosh I’d come up with 10 examples for this post and was stuck at 9. But think about it. It would be like Lolita but scary. Like somebody call the police I’ve locked my door scary. Although they do both deserve happiness…

 

4.) JUSTIN LONG AND A SHOE

They say when casting a romantic pair that you don’t want one actor or actress to upstage the other’s performance. Well rest assured Amurrca, I’ve finally found a suitable counterpart for ol’ Justin Long. No longer will he have to worry about being outshined by some “actress” like Drew Barrymore or the young wife from Big Love. Pairing him up with a shoe would cast the perfect dynamic. They are the ideal duo. One is polished leather barely held together by string, and the other is a shoe. It’s PERFECT!

 

3.) MEGA MAN AND METROID

I was very young but I remember when the universe found out that Samus was a woman. It was like mid 90s? Ever since then, while people were enjoying watching her run, shoot, and curl up into a ball; I was hoping she’d find real happiness. And Mega Man would be the perfect fit! Sure he’s a bit younger but come on, it’s Hollywood people! That dude from Lost married a 16 year old and NOBODY CARED! He can’t even do that legally but Los Angeles was like eff that we need the tax revenue. I just think that Mega Man and Samus could be very happy together, and save the sh*t out of the world! Michael Bay directing? They’re aliens? WHAT A RIDE!

 

2.) NICK OFFERMAN AND JODIE FOSTER

1.) CASEY ANTHONY AND JUSTIN BIEBER

They take a little stay-cation down in Florida and fall in love with the new backyard pool. I think we know how this one ends. Fortunately the winner in this movie is the Amurrcan public.
