Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline are big Hollywood names and have been gracing our screens for over four decades. These two brilliant stars have teamed up and appeared in three incredible movies together. Let's take a look at the movies they brought their chemistry to.

The first time the two got together to take on lead roles alongside each other was in the 1993 political comedy Dave. Dave Kovic, played by Kline, is an impersonator and decoy for US President Bill Mitchell, also played by Kline. When Bill suffers a stroke, Dave is asked to take his place in real life. He eventually meets Bill's estranged wife and first lady Ellen, played by Sigourney Weaver. At first, Ellen is unaware about the switch and eventually finds herself falling in love with Dave! The movie delivers laughter and Weaver and Kline bring great chemistry and banter to the screen.

The Ice Storm
The next time Weaver and Kline would team up was in the 1997 drama The Ice Storm. Kline portrays Ben Hood, a family man going through a mid-life crisis, and begins an affair with his friend's wife Janey Carver, played by Weaver. Throughout the movie, both families' trials and tribulations are explored and it all takes place during a terrible ice storm. Once again Weaver and Kline showcase their great chemistry but also display their more serious side due to their characters' emotional turmoil, proving how versatile they both can be with their characters.

The Good House
In this 2022 comedy-drama Weaver plays Hildy, a recovering alcoholic who rekindles her relationship with her high-school flame Frank (Kline). The movie is raw, emotional, and funny and beautifully showcases the journey of life through love, loss, and recovery. Once again we get to see that Kline and Weaver chemistry; and in an interview, Weaver teased that there is a short steamy sex scene between the two. Watch it this Sunday at 21:00 on M-Net  101.
