The couples who proved that age, class, and cosmic origin have nothing to do with love
That bittersweet, neurotic, and utterly charming look at love, Annie Hall, arrives on Blu-ray last month. Woody Allen's 1977 film is one most of us can identify with, especially when it comes to all the anticipation, insecurities, and uncertainties of a new relationship.
Although Allen's self-conscious, irksome, nebbish Alvy Singer shares some qualities with Diane Keaton's titular character, the divide between them eventually grows too wide to persist. We wanted to examine other odd couples on film, with an eye toward the pairings that made it work. Check out our picks below.
