The Trash Humpers - Trash Humpers (2009)
The Strange Relationship: Director Harmony Korine's experimental movie offers the audience a look into a weird world where three sociopathic geriatrics get busy with various inanimate objects - anything from trees to the titular trash cans get a look in.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Wandering around Tennessee humping bins isn't exactly the most stimulating of relationships, but we're just waiting for the day when there's a Channel 4 exposé documentary on the topic. It could happen.
Viktor and Simone - S1m0ne (2002)
The Strange Relationship: The original (and platonic) version of Spike Jonze's Her , S1m0ne follows film director Viktor (Al Pacino) as he creates a CGI actress (Rachel Roberts) for his new movie.
He quickly discovers that having a leading lady that you've invented makes filming much smoother, and soon finds himself dedicated to keeping up the walking, talking lie that is Simone.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? That's a resounding yes. Remember when cinema's certified kook Charlie Kaufman credited the movie Adaption to him and his twin brother Donald who he'd invented?
Josh and Susan - Big (1988)
The Strange Relationship: Josh Baskin (Tom Hanks) may look like a grown-up, but he's really just a twelve-year-old who got magically plonked into a bigger body thanks to an arcade machine.
Josh's new bod impresses fellow adult Sarah Lawrence (Elizabeth Perkins) enough for the pair to strike up a romance, which is all fine and dandy until you remember that Josh is still mentally a pre-teen. And then things start to feel very weird.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? If we were feeling very snarky, we could make some comment about how men are all emotionally teenagers anyway so it makes no real difference, but we'll skip that one for now.
Clare and Henry - The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)
The Strange Relationship: This schmaltzy adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger's bestselling novel tells the tale of Clare (Rachel McAdams) and Henry DeTamble (Eric Bana), a couple who's lives are determined by Henry's very unusual condition.
His sporadic and uncontrollable time travelling means that Henry and Clare's marriage is far from ordinary - she's never quite sure when a past, nude version of her husband might appear in the middle of the living room.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Yes, but it wouldn't be easy. Henry's unpredictable tendency to vanish during times of high stress makes him a particularly unstable romantic partner, but these two are so in love that little things like time travel simply can't get in their way.
Clive, Elsa and Dren - Splice (2009)
The Strange Relationship: If you've ever wondered what it would be like to play God and create human life then think again.
When genetic engineer partners Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) manage to generate a highly illegal human hybrid it seems reason to celebrate, but their subject Dren (Delphine Chanéac) and her accelerated development leads to some very damaging situations.
Things take an incredibly weird turn when Dren seduces her creator Clive and they engage in some scientifically baffling love-making, much to Elsa's distress.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Dren does look a bit too much like a bald cat to ever pass as a normal girl, and her tendencies for violence (and eating adorable bunnies) might make it a bit too tricky.
Brittany, Candy and Alien - Spring Breakers (2012)
The Strange Relationship: It's the ambiguity of it all - are college girls Brittany (Ashley Benson) and Candy (Vanessa Hudgens) being coerced into a world of sex, drugs and murder, or do they actually have total power over James Franco's slurring rapper Alien?
This strange threesome form a unique bond, held together mainly by their shared love of causing havoc, and Alien even goes as far as calling the girls his "soul mates".
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? In another world, Alien and his girls could have lived a long life together full of neon swimwear and Scarface on repeat, but we reckon they'd be doomed - the police would have to catch up with them eventually. They did kill a lot of people, after all.
Benjamin, Elaine and Mrs Robinson - The Graduate (1967)
The Strange Relationship: It's not even the age gap that makes this one strange - it's the fact that Ben (Dustin Hoffman) gets romantically involved with a young girl AND her mother. That makes for a very awkward family reunion.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? With Mrs Robinson (Anne Bancroft)? No. With the lovely Elaine (Katharine Ross)? We really hope so. Who doesn't love the interrupted wedding scene?
Alex and Marie - Switchblade Romance (2003)
The Strange Relationship: When it comes to big shock twists, this is one of cinema's greatest. (Don't read on if you're yet to watch the movie)
College friends Marie (Cécile de France) and Alex (Maïwenn Besco) are having a jolly old time heading to Alex's family home for the weekend. Until all the murdering starts.
It seems as if Marie is our hero, repeatedly saving Alex from a home-invading slasher, but all is not quite as it seems as we discover that Marie's all-encompassing love for her friend has driven her to psychotic meltdown; she is the woman on a murderous rampage. And all because she wants some alone time with Alex.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Unlikely - Marie's feelings for Alex seem to be very much unrequited, and we can't imagine Alex is feeling in the mood after watching her entire family die in gruesome manners.
Lon and Mathilda - Lon: The Professional (1994)
The Strange Relationship: After the brutal massacring of twelve-year-old Mathilda's (Natalie Portman) family, she teams up with solitary neighbour Léon (Jean Reno), hoping to pick up a few tips from the hit man and use them to exact her revenge.
Their feelings for each other definitely run deeper than a usual guardian / ward situation and director Luc Besson cleverly skates the line between strange and downright inappropriate (aka when Mathilda tells a hotel clerk that they're lovers).
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Give Mathilda a few more years to, you know, turn eighteen, and maybe, but we prefer these two as a platonic 'cleaning' partnership.
Dae-su and Mi-do - Oldboy (2003)
The Strange Relationship: Released from captivity after fifteen years, Dae-Su (Choi Min-sik) meets young chef Mi-Do (Kang Hye-jung) and is overwhelmingly happy to have both a partner in crime and some human contact again.
However, the big reveal that *spoiler alert* she's actually his long lost daughter turns what could have been a romantic sub-plot into a harrowing twist.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? No, no, no. We all know how this one ends - incest and tongue-removal does not constitute a happy ending.
Clarice and Hannibal - The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)
The Strange Relationship: There's no denying it's a brilliant and thrilling story, but the heart of this movie lies in the platonic but undeniably strange bond between Clarice (Jodie Foster) and Hannibal (Anthony Hopkins).
The troubled detective is coerced into joining forces with cinema's favourite psychopath to create a dream team that gave us nightmares - their relationship is twisted from the out, as Clarice begins to form an unhappy reliance on Lecter.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Not only could it work, it could get a whole lot weirder. At least Clarice manages to keep it professional and doesn't become an obsessed, letter-writing death row superfan...
Michael and Hanna - The Reader (2008)
The Strange Relationship: We're given yet another highly inappropriate age gap in Stephen Daldry's emotional drama The Reader , as fifteen-year-old Michael (David Kross) becomes entangled in a clandestine affair with train conductor Hanna Schmitz (Kate Winslet).
Cue countless long baths and erotically charged readings.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? It's the Mrs Robinson effect - unlikely to last (and in this case ends in jail).
The Narrator / Tyler and Marla - Fight Club (1999)
The Strange Relationship: Poor Marla inadvertently enters into a threeway relationship with The Narrator (Ed Norton) and his imaginary friend (Brad Pitt), leading to much confusion over The Narrator's erratic behaviour.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Probably not, it would be too difficult to arrange dates.
Allen and Madison - Splash (1984)
The Strange Relationship: Forget strange, this one is downright fishy! (Sorry, so very sorry).
Tom Hanks plays the chap enamoured with real life mermaid Madison (Daryl Hannah) in this fantastical comedy caper.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? The movie ends with Allen following his lady under the sea to start a new life in the deep, but with his legs and her tail we can't begin to imagine what they'll do to pass the time.
Also - surely he'd run out of puff before the credits even finished rolling?
Ballard and Helen - Crash (1996)
The Strange Relationship: After enduring a brutal traffic accident, James Ballard (James Spader) finds himself caught up in a dark world of car crash fetishists, and starts an illicit affair with fellow survivor Helen (Holly Hunter).
Famed for its graphic violence and sex scenes, David Cronenberg's thriller follows James's descent into this strange scene, as his sexual acts become more and more disturbing.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Sadly, it definitely could - symphorophilia is a real condition where people are aroused by accidents or catastrophes.
Larry and Ricki - Gigli (2003)
The Strange Relationship: We'd just like to remind you that this is the film that received a Razzie for "Worst Comedy of Our First 25 Years". Ouch.
In the a plot twist straight out of the mind of horny teenage boy, Gigli (Ben Affleck) manages to convince his lesbian associate Ricki (Jennifer Lopez) to turn renounce her lover and turn straight just for him.
It's turkey time!
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? We can certifiably say no to this one. It's a scenario that belongs in a bad porno, and nowhere else.
Calvin and Ruby - Ruby Sparks (2012)
The Strange Relationship: Struggling novelist Calvin (Paul Dano) manages to kick his writer's block when he creates the character of Ruby (Zoe Kazan), who, much to his surprise, becomes a real girl and wanders into his bedroom one morning.
Naturally, it doesn't take long before Calvin is head-over-heels for his leading lady. After all, he did invent her.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? We're pretty sure it'd end up the same way in real life as it did in the movie - Calvin would get carried away with his total control over Ruby and turn his live-in lover into nothing more than a pretty puppet.
Oskar and Eli - Let The Right One In (2008)
The Strange Relationship: This haunting adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's bestselling horror novel follows the bullied and lonely Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant) as he befriends Eli (Lina Leandersson), a young vampire.
The strange bond that forms between these two outcasts is enchanting (if not terrifying), and director Tomas Alfredson even toned down much of the book's action to focus more on their relationship.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Lonely twelve-year-olds often make friends with the wrong people, but Eli and Oskar's friendship leads to way too much gruesome death for us to give it a thumbs up.
Ted and Tami-Lynn - Ted (2012)
The Strange Relationship : Foul-mouthed magical teddy bear Ted (Seth MacFarlane) is charming, there's no denying it, but it's still very bizarre picturing him getting busy with supermarket checkout totty Tami-Lynn.
How is that even possible?!
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Lets keep teddy bears for cuddling. Please?
Kip and LaFawnduh - Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
The Strange Relationship: When Napoleon's (Jon Heder) weedy brother Kip Dynamite (Aaron Ruell) boasts about spending his time chatting to "babes" on the web, no one could ever have imagined LaFawnduh (Shondrella Avery).
She's twice his height and twice his width, but after an impromptu hip-hop make-over and a couple of dance lessons, these two unlikely lovebirds ride off into the sunset together. Literally.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Oh we hope so. Just for the song that Kip sings his lady at their wedding - "Yes, I love technology, but not as much as you, you see".
Bella and Edward - Twilight (2008)
The Strange Relationship: She's a seventeen-year-old high school student, he's a one-hundred-and-nine-year-old vampire. Do we need to say more?
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Seriously, he's one-hundred-and-nine years old.
He might be in the Guinness Book of World Records in real life, but he definitely wouldn't be shacked-up with a teenager.
Ben and Sera - Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
The Strange Relationship: Alcoholic screenwriter Ben Sanderson (Nicolas Cage) heads to Las Vegas with one plan - to drink himself to death as quickly as possible.
He pays local prostitute Sera $500 to sit and talk with him for an hour, and the two end up forming a strange bond.
There are rules, of course, as Sera has to vow she will never ask Ben to quit drinking and Ben has to refrain from critising Sera's job.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? It's not impossible for a lonely hooker and a lost boozehound to fall in love, but with Ben's short life expectancy, we're not seeing great things from this one.
Sam and Joon - Benny & Joon (1993)
The Strange Relationship : Definitely the sweeter end of the strange spectrum, Jeremiah S. Chechik's quirky rom-com Benny & Joon sees mentally ill Joon (Mary Stuart Masterson) finding love with oddball cinephile and Buster Keaton obsessive Sam (Johnny Depp).
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Absolutely. This film is often praised for its portrayal of mental illness and the stigmas that surround it, and regardless of their backgrounds, quirks and problems, Sam and Joon are quite simple an adorable couple.
Kathryn and Sebastian - Cruel Intentions (1999)
The Strange Relationship: This one just gives us the creeps.
There's something off about step-siblings Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe) from the very first time we see them, and their oddly sexualised relationship is above and beyond the accepted level of closeness for family members.
Especially that line: "You can put it anywhere…"
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life ? It probably could, but once the dastardly couple ran out of innuendos, the conversation would be bound to dry up pretty quickly.
Leonard and Natalie - Memento (2000)
The Strange Relationship: There's nothing exceptionally strange about Natalie and Leonard's relationship in itself, but when you throw in Leonard's particular type of memory loss things definitely take a step towards the bizarre side, as Natalie uses his condition to get what she wants and protect herself.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Maybe, if she'd even wanted it to.
Leonard lives in a world where he cannot trust a single person he meets (hence the obsessive tattooing and photographing), and Natalie was just another person out to take advantage, even if she did end up growing fond of him.
Victor and Emily - Corpse Bride (2005)
The Strange Relationship: Memo to self: never recite wedding vows and plant your ring on a finger-like branch.You might just find yourself accidentally married to an undead girl instead of your betrothed, like the adorably clumsy Victor (Johnny Depp).
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Considering Victor actually loves another girl, he and Emily (Helena Bonham Carter) actually make a pretty sweet pair. He doesn't even seem to mind all that much that she's not technically alive - maybe all that lovely blue hair acts as a pleasant distraction?
Richie and Margot - The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
The Strange Relationship: "I think we're just gonna to have to be secretly in love with each other and leave it at that, Richie."
If it wasn't for the whole brother / sister thing, these two would be perfect.
Granted, Margot is adopted (as her father loves to remind her), but there's still something odd about dating someone who calls the same woman 'Mum' as you do.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? There's nothing biologically wrong with it. But it is a bit weird.
Kate and Alex - The Lake House (2006)
The Strange Relationship: Kate (Sandra Bullock) and Alex (Keanu Reeves) are loved-up pen pals separated only by, well, time.
Kate lives two years ahead of Alex, but thanks to the apparently supernatural letterbox at the lake house they both inhabit, the duo are able to converse.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Let's hope not. This nauseatingly sentimental duo would get on the nerves of everyone they knew. Great 'how we met' story for dinner parties, though.
Seth and Veronica - The Fly (1986)
The Strange Relationship: Scientist Seth (Jeff Goldblum) and his journalist lover Veronica (Geena Davis) start out as your average couple, but things take a weird turn when Seth uses himself as a test subject for his new teleportation machine.
As Seth begins the nasty transformation into the Brundlefly, Ronnie actually finds herself enjoying the physical side of their relationship even more than before, thanks to Seth's new… skills.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Dear God we hope not. In case you haven't seen the movie, it does not end well. We wouldn't wish that on any couple, however nauseating they are.
Henry and Lucy - 50 First Dates (2004)
The Strange Relationship: Director Peter Segal reunited The Wedding Singer power couple Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler for this Hawaiian tale of amnesiac love.
Sandler plays Sea Life vet Henry, who's determined to date the lovely Lucy, regardless of the brain injury which has left her with Goldfish Syndrome.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? It could, and it has. Michelle Philpots was in a bad motorcycle accident back in 1985, and since lost the ability to retain short-term memories. Just like in the movie, her husband has to remind her of their wedding every time she wakes up.
Jonathan and Emmy - Mannequin (1987)
The Strange Relationship: Wannabe artist Jonathan (Andrew McCarthy) falls for shop window mannequin Emmy (Kim Cattrall). Emmy isn't permanently plastic however - she does come to life occasionally, albeit only for Jonathan. Perhaps that's part of the attraction.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? We don't see why not, as long as Jonathan made sure that there was absolutely no chance of Emmy reverting back to plastic. That would make for a very boring marriage.
Gary, Wyatt and Lisa - Weird Science (1985)
The Strange Relationship: Power nerd school chums Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) use all their techno know-how to create the "perfect woman" (Kelly LeBrock) on their computer (a now suitably retro Memotech).
With the infamous line "So, what would you little maniacs like to do first?", cyber babe Lisa enchanted the boys and went on to share some steamy smooches with Wyatt. She might not be a flesh-and-blood woman, but her bodacious bod made sure that no one cared too much about that.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? If men had the option to create their perfect women then real girls would become obsolete. This would definitely work - Gary and Wyatt would have stayed loyal to Lisa for as long as she was an insanely attractive computer hottie. So forever, then.
Jenny and The Starman - Starman (1984)
The Strange Relationship: Jeff Bridges plays an alien shot down by the US government, who takes on the form of the late husband of Jenny (Karen Allen) in John Carpenter's fantasy road trip flick.
Movie road trips nearly always lead to romance, and Starman and Jenny's passionate love affair offers the audience one of the creepiest post-coital lines in movie history: "I gave you a baby tonight." Shudder.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Debatable. He'd die on Earth, she'd die on his planet, and everyone knows that long-distance relationships can be nasty (especially ones where you can't even Skype).
Edward and Kim - Edward Scissorhands (1990)
The Strange Relationship: Tim Burton's love stories are always oddball, but this tale of doomed romance between a fluffy-haired American sweetheart and a leather-clad man with scissors for hands might be the strangest (and sweetest).
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Off-screen Edward would undoubtedly not be considered an outcast at all and would become an avant-garde hairdresser, not hindered by his Wolverine-style fingers and adored by the fashion elite.
In which case, no one would bat an eyelid at his union with Kim, and they'd probably live happily ever after and all that.
Lee and Edward - Secretary (2002)
The Strange Relationship: Sensitive typist Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal) bags herself a job working for eccentric lawyer Edward Grey, and it isn't long before they're neglecting the memos for some seriously kinky BDSM activity.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Most definitely. If the whole Fifty Shades Of Grey palava has taught us anything, it's that there are a lot of bored housewives out there looking for a domineering boss to teach them a thing or two.
Phil and Rita - Groundhog Day (1993)
The Strange Relationship: Grouchy weatherman Phil (Bill Murray) uses every trick in the book to woo his producer Rita (Andie MacDowell). No seriously, every single trick.
Stuck in a seemingly never-ending time loop, Phil has all the time in the world to work exactly what it is that Rita finds charming in a man, even learning some impressive French poetry. Smooth.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? We're sure most guys would appreciate the opportunity to have countless attempts at getting the girl. Plus, Phil gets to learn some classic movie valuable life lessons on the way, so we'll give them a thumbs up.
Harold and Maude - Harold and Maude (1971)
The Strange Relationship: This death-obsessed couple are perfect for each other. Apart from the fifty year age gap.
Even though she's old enough to be his great-grandmother, Harold (Bud Cort) and Maude (Ruth Gordon) make a serously charming pairing.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Harold's snooty mother (Vivien Pickles) definitely wouldn't be happy, but we think not only would it work, they'd have a reoccurring slot on Extreme Cougar Wives . Yes, that is a real TV show.
Elizabeth and David - Just Like Heaven (2005)
The Strange Relationship: Landscape architect and handsome widower Dave (Mark Ruffalo) finds himself in love with a beautiful (and slightly neurotic) ghost (Reese Witherspoon) who shares his new apartment.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? All depends on your stance on the supernatural of course, but we reckon if anyone found a ghostly Reese Witherspoon in their flat they'd force themselves to get past the weirdness and make it work. Makes hugging hard though.
Craig and Lotte and Maxine and John - Being John Malkovich (1999)
The Strange Relationship: Oh where to start.
Craig and Lotte are a normal married couple until he meets the sexy Maxine and they discover a portal into John Malkovich's head and Maxine discovers she likes having sex with John but only when Craig's wife Lotte is in his brain and then Craig becomes Malkovich and does anyone else have a headache??
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Absolutely not. It's far too complicated, and we'd never be able to remember what name to address everyone by.
Jessica and Roger Rabbit - Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
The Strange Relationship: When you consider that they exist in the fictional world of Toonland, Jessica Rabbit's (Kathleen Turner) marriage to goofy Roger (Charles Fleischer) doesn't seem that odd.
Even still, Jess is a babe of such epic proportion that it seems strange for her to settle for anyone quite so… rabbity.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? He may be buck-toothed and big-eared, but Jessica loves him anyway. Why? "He makes me laugh". There's hope for anyone.
Ann and King Kong - King Kong (1933)
The Strange Relationship: "It was Beauty killed the Beast".
Kong takes one for big hairy dudes everywhere when he pursues the beautiful Ann Darrow (Fay Wray). He's even willing to battle dinosaurs, machine guns and biplanes to keep his girl. That's what we call dedication, gents.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? He might be tall, dark and very outdoorsy, but boy oh boy would Kong be one possessive partner. Plus, good luck finding a tux in his size.
Daisy and Benjamin - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
The Strange Relationship: Benjamin (Brad Pitt) and Daisy (Cate Blanchett) share an epic romance, one that lasts an entire lifetime. If only they'd shared quite the same lifetime…
As she ages, his body gets younger, giving them only a few fleeting years where they can meet in the middle.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? What seems quirky and charming in Fincher's gorgeously weird movie would definitely not be acceptable out in the real world.
The elderly Daisy giving her toddler beau a smooch? Someone would be dialling social services faster than you can say 'inappropriate'.
Neytiri and Jake - Avatar (2009)
The Strange Relationship: This Pocahontas for the CGI generation sees paraplegic war vet Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) falling head over blue heels for Na'vi warrior princess Neytiri (Zoe Saldana).
Shame that Jake's been using a Na'vi avatar to hang out with his girl, and his real body is lying in a pod back at the human camp. The human camp that's trying to destroy the Na'vis...
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? There's no real difference between this relationship and couples who meet on World Of Warcraft (except maybe the use of a slightly bigger avatar).
They could have an online wedding and live happily ever after. Until he met a big-boobed Elf Princess that is.
Susan and Joe - Meet Joe Black (1998)
The Strange Relationship: It should have been so simple. Susan (Claire Forlani) meets a cute guy in a coffee shop, he turns up at her house, bonds with her family and they fall in love.
One small problem - he's actually Death inhabiting the body of a hottie (Brad Pitt) and he's come to claim her father's soul. Pretty weird, as they go.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Their coupledom is greatly helped by the face that Death manages to find such a handsome body to live in. Can you imagine introducing him to your mates if he was all robe and scythe?!
R and Julie - Warm Bodies (2013)
The Strange Relationship: Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer do Twilight with a sense of humour in Jonathan Levine's tale of undead star-crossed lovers.
Walking corpse R finds himself enamoured with the gun-wielding, very much alive Julie and, in a fine example of the power of Stockholm Syndrome, she starts falling for him too.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? It's hard to imagine that romance would be on anyone's mind in the case of a zombie apocalpyse, but saying that we've definitely met men with worse conversational skills than the monosyllabic R, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
Scott and Romana - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)
The Strange Relationship: Scott Pilgrim's (Michael Cera) persistent pursuit of Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) pays off and the young lovebirds settle in for that honeymoon period of holding hands and beaming at each other (or whatever it is that happy couples do).
Except. It turns out that before you can date the lovely Ms. Flowers, you have to fight off her seven evil exes. And we don't mean passive-aggressively snark at in the pub. We mean fight fight. Nunchucks and everything.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? We reckon so. After all, everyone's got history. Ramona's is just more... present than most.
Scott just shows that if you want to get the girl, sometimes you have to become a video game hero.
WALL-E and EVE - WALL-E (2008)
The Strange Relationship: The last trash compactor robot on Earth meets the android girl of his dreams in Pixar's sob-fest love story.
Hostile EVE and loveable WALL-E might seem incompatible on first meeting, but when EVE goes into standby mode, WALL-E shows his dedication by sticking by his switched-off lady through thick and thin.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? If this is what robot romance is like, we are officially on board. These two might not be technically human, but they have more heart than most.
Lars and Bianca - Lars And The Real Girl (2007)
The Strange Relationship: He's a socially inept introvert with a Tom Selleck moustache and great taste in knitwear; she's a wheelchair-bound Brazilian/Danish missionary.
Oh yeah, and she's an anatomically correct sex doll.
Lars (Ryan Gosling) thrills his family when he announces he's met his dream girl, but everyone is left a wee bit scared an uncomfortable when doll-friend Bianca arrives at the dinner table.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? Probbaly not for long - having one-sided conversations is bound to get a bit tedious after a while - but weirder things have happened. Remember that woman who married the Eiffel Tower?!
Joel and Clementine - Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2003)
The Strange Relationship: In a fit of post break-up rage, Joel (Jim Carrey) decides to erase chameleon-haired ex-girlfriend Clem (Kate Wislet) from his memories in Michel Gondry's romantic sci-fi thriller headfuck.
Naturally, half way through he realises that he's made a huge mistake, and chases Clem through his own mind in a futile attempt to save her.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? We've all wished we could scratch certain lovers from our history, but actually undergoing voluntary brain damage? Bit far.
We also can't help thinking that these two would be straight back to the brain wipe doctors every time they had a bicker over whose turn it was to take the bins out.
Theodore and Sam - Her (2013)
The Strange Relationship: Lonely writer Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) buys himself an operating system which has been designed to evolve like a human.
After naming her Sam (Scarlett Johansson), he finds himself falling for her and getting more lost in his own world than ever before.
Could It Ever Work In Real-Life? It's bound to happen. We're a society that sleep with our phones more than with our other halves, and if Siri got a sexy vocal makeover à la Scarlett, we'd be seeing a whole lot of computer / human relationships.
