In 'Admission' Tina Fey and Paul Rudd play a college admissions officer and a high school teacher who fall for each other...which sounds about as hot as it plays out. Still, these two are so damn attractive it should have been grade-A sexiness. {Photo credit: Focus Features}

You know what kills the mood watching a beauty like Sandra Bullock and Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper hook up on screen? A movie that is as soul-crushingly terrible and decidedly unsexy as 'All About Steve'. These two deserve better. So did we. {Photo credit: 20th Century Fox}

Everyone has a crush on Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, so their on-screen pairing should have made us crush on them even harder. Unfortunately, their movie 'Five Year Relationship' felt longer and sexless than most real relationships. {Photo credit: Universal Pictures}

You'd be hard pressed to find two harder bodies in Hollywood than Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. While they had good chemistry in 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days', it was non-existent in the hollow 'Fool's Gold'. {Photo credit: Warner Bros. Pictures}

Their off-screen relationship was all anyone could talk about, but Bennifer on-screen was a terrible sign of things to come. It didn't help matters that 'Gigli' was one of the worst scripts to come out of Hollywood, but their performances were equally nauseating. {Photo credit: Columbia TriStar/Sony Pictures}

Zooey Deschanel and Mark Wahlberg played a couple, quite literally, outrunning the wind in 'The Happening'. Twist: despite being very hot people, their on-screen chemistry is as silly, unbelievable, and lifeless as the very M. Night shlock-fest they appear in together. What? No! {Photo credit: 20th Century Fox}

How can you go wrong with Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, two of the biggest movie stars on the planet whose talent is only matched by their marquee good looks? Ah yes, the flat and completely unsexy dark comedy 'The Mexican', that's how. {Photo credit: Dreamworks}

Brad's got nothing to worry about: Angie may have starred alongside one of the hottest men on the planet, but her chemistry with Johnny Depp in the critically-slammed comedy 'The Tourist' made 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' look like 'Casablanca.' {Photo credit: Columbia Pictures}

Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum in 'The Vow'

Look, both Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum are easy on the eyes, and 'The Vow' was no exception. But the sappy drama about memory loss pretty much zapped any sexiness out of the equation, especially with that god awful ending that would kill anyone's libido. {Photo credit: Sony Pictures}

Yeah, we said it! Sorry but, Kristen Stewart's Bella and Robert Pattinson's Edward looked more pained to be with each other than turned on during their courtship in the 'Twilight' saga. Wincing and grimacing does not a sexy couple make. {Photo credit: Summit Entertainment}
