Grease - Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta

Love is in air in February - or at least, it’s all over the entertainment industry. Retailers vie for our money, love-soaked television episodes hope for big ratings. The sappier the better, because doesn’t romance put everyone in a spending mood? In Hollywood, love stories are popular all year ‘round - but which lovable big screen couples continue to endure when other romances seems to fade? Some leading ladies and big screen hunks seem to have more chemistry than the average pair, and we love to watch them fall in love again and again.

Let’s look back at five lovable big screen couples, and see what happens when pretend romance is done right.

Olivia Newton-John and - They were both in their twenties when they filmed Grease, but they were the perfect High School couple. The enduring tale of bad-boy-falls-for-good-girl is perhaps best represented with rollicking music and 50s-era fashion - or at least, it’s more enjoyable that way. It’s all thanks to Sandy and Danny, who are so very lovable together.

Theatergoers clearly starving for fresh material placed all four wide release entries into the chart’s four top slots.

Box Office Breakdown: Bring On The Fuzz

1. Disturbia, DreamWorks-Paramount, $13,010,778
