While Gigli stars the glorious 2000s’ “Bennifer,” (Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck) the film is still considered to be a pretty awful form start to finish. The creator’s attempt to weave a kitschy love story in the midst of this gory and violent mess was weird, to say the least.
The story mostly revolves around a tough mobster who kidnaps a mentally challenged kid. Cue the romance.
In Passengers, Chris Pratt plays Jim, a mechanical engineer who supposedly wakes up after a 240-year sleep, on a spaceship. After discovering he has another 90 years to go until he lands in his new home, he kills time hanging solo.
That is until encounters the exquisite Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) who seems to be riding along with him, asleep. Morally conflicted about waking her up and stealing her new life from her before it begins, he ultimately caves and wakes poor Aurora up.
Jim and Aurora
To the viewer, it puts the whole romantic relationship on a bad footing, to begin with. Essentially Jim robs Auruoroa of the life she could have had, had she just continued on sleeping safely in her pod.
Ultimately, what more could she do? He's the only guy there, so a relationship seems reasonable
Larry Gigli and Ricki
Lopez and Affleck's impromptu kiss clearly did something. Unfortunately just not for any of the viewers. While the two fell in love over their intimate scenes, their chemistry somehow did not transcend the screen.
At least it resulted in a two year highly publicized romance. This was prime gossip mag material from 2002 to 2004.
The relationship between Niles (David Hyde Pierce) and Daphne (Jane Leeves) in Frasier was an amusing side addition to the show.
While Niles was quick to fall very hard for the light-hearted housekeeper in only the third episode of the entire series, it took time for mutual feelings to be developed.
