10 Favorite Pop Culture Couples

There’s no shortage of couples in movie history, but few of them are built to last. Here are the fictional couples that could go the distance.

Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton in Friday Night Lights (NBC)
1. Eric & Tami Taylor – Friday Night Lights

Other couples simply can’t compare to Coach and Mrs. Coach. Sure, they have their flaws, but they understand the sacrifice and give-and-take of making a successful relationship. Plus, it helps that they’re both incredibly wise, something that only comes with experience.

2. Jesse & Celine – Before Midnight

Their meet-cute in Before Sunrise is both thoughtful and lovely, their reunion in Before Sunset is poignant and sexy, but their near-end in Before Midnight is the richest of all their time together. If they can survive their last fight – which features both legitimate and irrelevant points – they’ll survive forever.


Marge & Homer in The Simpsons (Fox)
3. Homer & Marge Simpson – The Simpsons

Though it’s often revealed how much Marge had to give up to raise their family, there’s no denying the love these two have for each other. They’ve both had multiple opportunities to cheat with people far more attractive than their spouses, yet remained faithful for 25 years (even though time doesn’t really matter in Springfield).

"They haven't made a great movie since they started talking. They haven't made a good movie since they switched to color." - a total lie

I'm a Dallas native and a big fan of classic film and contemporary movies that are challenging, but I still love a good raunchy comedy every now and again. My favorite movie of all time is Singin' in the Rain. If you haven't seen it, stop reading this and go watch it. I'll wait.

Like most film writers, my hero is the late Roger Ebert. Sadly, there's very little viability in film criticism as a career. So I just do this as a hobby.

I knew I was going to be a film snob in middle school, when I had to defend The Royal Tenenbaums against Adam Sandler's Mr. Deeds. Still, I try to remain a populist.

Outside of film, my interests are faith, intelligent debate, travel and the Dallas Mavericks.
