Movie romances are one of the greatest things to watch unfold. They can be funny, lighthearted, even dangerous — but always entertaining.

Sometimes, audiences bear witness to a movie couple with such incredible chemistry, they literally try to will that relationship into existence.

With that in mind, have a look below at these movie couples with such great chemistry, people wanted them to date in real life.

Westley and Princess Buttercup in 'The Princess Bride'

Let's be honest, we all dream about someone showing us the kind of love and devotion that Westley extolls upon Princess Buttercup. To borrow an old cliche, Westkey and Buttercup prove that true love conquers all.

Rick O'Connell and Evie O'Connell in 'The Mummy'

Rick and Evie are a classic example of opposites attracting. Rick's rough and rugged exterior is balanced perfectly by Evie's tact and intellect. If only Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz could've got together in real life.

Harry Burns and Sally Albright in 'When Harry Met Sally'

The type of chemistry that Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan showed on-screen comes along once in a generation. They seemed picture-perfect for one another in the film and it's hard to imagine that not translating into a real-world romance.

Jesse and Celine from 'Before Sunrise'

Before Sunrise showed audiences how love can be born at the strangest times and in the most inopportune of circumstances. Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are positively explosive together, delivering two of the best romantic performances in cinema history.

Patrick Verona and Kat Stratford in '10 Things I Hate About You'

I am the first to admit that I'm not overly fond of Julia Stiles. That being said, if she and Heath Ledger found a way to make it work, I'd be won over in an instant.

Adam Webber and Eve Rustikov in 'Blast From The Past'

Adam and Eve save each other in this film. Without Adam's blissful innocence, Eve would've never been able to see the world for how beautiful it truly is. Without Eve's streetwise attitude, Adam would've been dead in the gutter.

Ted Stroehmann and Mary Jensen from 'There's Something About Mary'

Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz in 'There's Something About Mary'.
20th Century Fox | 20th Century Fox

Boy, do I ever love this movie. As far as I'm concerned, this might be the most underrated comedy of the '90s, mostly because seeing Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz interacting with one another on-screen is nothing short of heart-melting.

Annie Reed and Sam Baldwin in 'Sleepless In Seattle'

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks first stole our hearts in Sleepless in Seattle and then again many years later in You've Got Mail. Suffice it to say that there are no two fictional characters I'd like to see get together in real life more than these two.

Jackson and Ally Main in 'A Star Is Born'

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in 'A Star Is Born'.

For the bulk of the film, it really didn't feel as if Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were acting at all. Their love and romance seemed so visceral, almost as if it was unfolding right before our very eyes.

Joel Barish and Clementine Kruczynski in 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind'

You can't sit there and tell me that you wouldn't absolutely gush upon hearing the news that Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet were dating. Their love in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the type of thing that dreams are made of.

Williams Shakespeare and Viola De Lesseps in 'Shakespeare In Love'

Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes in 'Shakesepeare in Love'.

I don't know about you, but I would've far rather seen Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes together than have to bear witness to the trainwreck that was her relationship with ex-husband, Chris Martin.

Tom Hansen and Summer Finn in '500 Days Of Summer'

Sure, Summer and Tom weren't able to make it work in the film but that's OK. I have nothing but faith in the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zoey Deschanel would be absolutely perfect for one another.

Noah Calhoun and Allie Hamilton in 'The Notebook'

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in 'The Notebook'.

Technically, we already got our wish because these two really did date in real life. If only they could've found a way to make their love last, thus answering the prayers of every Nicholas Sparks fan on the planet.

Sam Wheat and Molly Jensen in 'Ghost'

Whenever I'm feeling sad or lonely, I just close my eyes and I think about Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore effortlessly molding a lump of clay into a physical manifestation of their love.

Iris Simpkins and Miles Dumont from 'The Holiday'

Jack Black and Kate Winslet helped us all to believe that nice guys don't finish last and that true love comes to those who wait and are most deserving of it. For that, I'll always love them.

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in 'Dirty Dancing'

As much as fans would've loved to have seen Patrick and Jennifer date in real life, the likelihood of that actually happening was incredibly slim. Although their chemistry was palpable, in reality — these two despised one another.

Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan in 'A Walk To Remember'

After audiences finished crying buckets of tears in A Walk to Remember, everyone and their mother was praying for Shane West and Mandy Moore to date. Sadly, for whatever reason, these two chose to be just friends.

Pat Solitano and Tiffany Maxwell in 'Silver Lining's Playbook'

Pat and Tiffany were two broken people who found a way to put themselves back together through dance. The way they interacted on-screen and all of their subtle nuances had everyone convinced that Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence would date.

Neo and Trinity in 'The Matrix'

Neo and Trinity's love quite literally saved the world in The Matrix. It seemed only reasonable to expect that Keanu and Carrie-Anne Moss would find their way back to each other in the real world.

Vivian Ward and Edward Lewis in 'Pretty Woman'

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in the bathtub in 'Pretty Woman'.

It goes without saying that Pretty Woman is one of the best romantic comedies ever made. Therefore, it's no wonder that the majority of movie-going audiences would've given anything to see Julia Roberts and Richard Gere give it a go.

Laney Boggs and Zack Siler in 'She's All That'

Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar are together and still going strong. But in an alternate universe, I know that he and Rachel Leigh Cook would've been very happy together.

Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson in 'Grease'

My chills are multiplying and I'm losing control, it happens every time I think about John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Any two people who can sing and dance that well together are bound to be compatible in a real-world relationship.

Albert and Armand Goldman in 'The Birdcage'

Albert and Armand in 'The Birdcage'.

At the end of the day, we all dream of finding someone who accepts us for who we are. That's what made Albert and Armand's love so pure, and that's precisely what makes me wish that Robin Wiliams and Nathan Lane would've at least tested the waters.

Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater from 'Titanic'

My heart will not go on, not while I have the knowledge that somehow after all these years, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet still haven't found their way back to one another.
