34. 'Far and Away' (1992)

It sounded good on paper: Tom Cruise and his real-life lady love Nicole Kidman as Irish immigrants (she's rich, he's poor) who come to America from the old country in a big screen romantic epic from director Ron Howard. Alas, aside from some lovely photography and a moderately exciting finale set during the Oklahoma Land Rush, it's a hollow mess; there's surprisingly little chemistry between the two leads, despite their much-discussed offscreen romance at the time. It appears to have given James Cameron some ideas for the central romance in Titanic, however.
