Since the 1890's, movies and cinema have been a part of our lives. They have shaped our perceptions, changed the way we interact with each other, and have become an iconic way to tell a story. Each movie is set up a certain way, so its story has a familiar structure. Couples are one of the major staples in that structure, which make movies desirable to watch. This staple is important and shapes the way the movie plays out. If the couple on-screen doesn't get along, or the director has decided to take a "different" approach, the audience can be displeased, leaving the couple, as well as the movie, unwanted.
Couples on-screen either have chemistry that works, or they just don't. It's as simple as that. Collected here is a list of 15 of the worst on-screen couples throughout cinema. While some are not so bad, others were obviously awful and destined to fail on screen.

1 Leonardo DiCaprio & Cameron Diaz: Gangs of New York
The film Gangs of New York, stunned everyone in the box office. It was even nominated for an Oscar. And while the acting between Leo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis was completely captivating and stunning, the relationship everyone had trouble with was that of DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz. The way Diaz was represented in the movie almost pushed her to the side, especially when it came to the bond between her and DiCaprio. Their love didn't seem authentic, permanent or compelling.
