Fictional couples that seem to be perfect for each other until you really think about it. Boy meets girl, boy and girl face some sort of drama together, boy gets girl. That’s the basic storyline of almost every romance film ever made, yet we swoon every single time. Stale plotlines be damned! The love stories that play out in books, on our TVs and on the big screen inform our real-life hopes and dreams: aren’t we all just searching for the Noah to our Allie, the Big to our Carrie, the Simba to our Nala?
