The 5: Criminal Couples of Film


This Week on the 5:  Cinematic Criminal Couples

If you’re fearful of losing the passion in your relationship, try committing a few crimes.  For these couples, criminal behavior is an aphrodisiac.  In no particular order, here are five movie couples with uniquely passionate romances.

  • Mickey and Mallory, Natural Born Killers.  Woody Harrelson and Juliet Lewis play this criminal couple to perfection. Mass-murders in love who kill just for the thrill of it.
  • Walter and Phyllis, Double Indemnity.  Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck.  Insurance investigator Walter (Fred MacMurray) could catch a fraud a million miles away until he met and fell for Phyllis (Barbara Stanwyck), a passionate woman who wants her husband dead so she can collect his life insurance money.
  • Dennis and Sue Anne, Pretty Poison.  A post-Psycho Anthony Perkins plays Dennis, a former mental patient who is unleashed on the world.  When he convinces all-American sweet, innocent  Sue Anne (played by Tuesday Weld) to sabotage the chemical company he works at, things quickly turn deadly.
  • Kit and Holly, Badlands.  Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek play Holly and sociopath Kit.  She’s lovestruck.  His main thrill in life is committing murder, and they embark on a horrific killing spree.
  • Bonnie and Clyde, Bonnie and Clyde.  Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty bring these two to life. They’re young.  They’re beautiful.  And they kill people.
