10+ Movie Duos Who Had No Chemistry

Chemistry is not an easy thing to manufacture. It takes time and must be cultivated properly at its own pace. Otherwise, an audience can smell when you're being disingenuine.

Below are examples of duos who completely missed the mark, even though they tried hard to hit it.

Have a look and check out these 10+ movie duos who had absolutely no chemistry whatsoever.

Colm Feore and Patrick Huard in *Bon Cop, Bad Cop*.

As if the title wasn't evidenced enough, this is a film you're going to want to keep your social distance from. Trust me.

Watching Colm Feore and Patrick Huard try and be convincing as they muddle through their good cop/bad cop routine is laughable.

Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman in *Bewitched*.

Columbia Pictures

I used to think it was impossible for Will Ferrell to make a bad movie — then I saw Bewitched.

I don't mean to be cruel, but watching Will and Nicole on screen was like seeing two cousins kissing.

Chris O'Donnell and George Clooney in *Batman And Robin*.

Warner Bros.

It isn't entirely their fault, the film was ripe with problems from the getgo (Don't even get me started on the Bat-nipples!).

The chemistry between Batman and Robin was more chilling than watching Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.

Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman in *Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith*

I could have easily chosen Attack of the Clones but it's in Episode III where the awkward nature of Anakin and Padme is at its finest.

Their body language is practically screaming "Get me out of here!"

Matthew Broderick and Jim Carrey in *The Cable Guy*.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Damn you, Matthew Broderick! You almost singlehandedly ruined Jim Carrey's career!

Even a comedic master like Jim couldn't revive the lifeless plot and uninspired writing. You could just feel that neither actor particularly cared about the film or even wanted to be there in the first place.

Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan in *Cop Out*.

Warner Bros.

Who on earth thought that this would be a good casting decision? I understand juxtaposition but all Cop Out managed to do was annoy audiences around the world.

Both Willis and Morgan are arguably at their most apathetic.

Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx in *Miami Vice*.

Universal Pictures

By the time I'd walked out of the theater I'd already completely forgotten about Miami Vice. It's strange because on paper it looked like such a good pairing.

But in reality, all Foxx and Farrell managed to do was compete with one another in the most over the top and dramatic fashion.

Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in *Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice*.

This broke my heart. How can a film where Henry Cavill is Superman and Ben Affleck is Batman, be such an utter and complete let down? It doesn't make any sense!

The Martha scene sure didn't help, either.

Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett in *Hollywood Homicide*.

Columbia Pictures

It's a miracle that Josh Hartnett was able to find work after turning in this abysmal performance in Hollywood Homicide.

The characters hated each other on-screen just as much as the actors despised one another off-screen.

Julianne Moore and Anthony Hopkins in *Hannibal*.


I think it goes without saying that recasting Jody Foster was a mistake. You really can't fault Julianne Moore, she did the best she could with what she had.

Unfortunately, it just wasn't enough to rival the dynamic of the first film.

Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy in *Bowfinger*.

When casting time for Bowfinger came around, clearly, someone thought to themselves "I know! Let's get the two biggest comedians currently working in Hollywood!"

Sadly, Murphy and Martin's style didn't compliment one another in the slightest.

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman in *Double Team*.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

You know how a movie can be so bad that somehow along the way it becomes good? That's Double Team, for you.

Without a doubt, one of the best/worst movies you will ever see or will ever want to see.

Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright in *Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows*.

Despite where you fall on the issue of who Harry should have ended up with, the fact is, that their relationship just did not feel organic on-screen.

Their first kiss was terribly awkward.

James Franco and Tobey Maguire in *Spider-Man 3*.

Sony Pictures

Is Spider-Man 3 the worst superhero movie ever made? That is certainly an argument to be made. What is beyond reproach is the sheer disappointment in seeing Franco and Maguire play off one another.

They weren't believable as best friends nor were they as worst enemies.

Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox in *Transformers*.


Once again, I understand it's difficult to build chemistry when you're not acting but rather reacting to images on a green screen.

That said, Shia and Megan just seemed to be cut from two different cloths.
