These are some of the best movie crime partnerships. From serial killers to bank robbers passing by hitman and ending up with unlucky partners whose lives have turned 180 degrees in a fraction of a second.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? Legendary team of outlaws that robbed banks and trains and where portrayed by Paul Bewman and Robert Redford in a very famous film of the same name: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) that won four Oscars in Writing, cinematography, score and song and was nominated for best picture, Director ( George Roy Hill) and sound? Yeah, I say they did.
I mean have you ever seen this scene?

But then you could always go with the same actors as Hooker and Gandalf in “The Sting”. Con-Men are criminals too.

What about 'Pardon Us' with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, when they try to sell beer to an Officer while the prohibition continues?

This is such a well-done poll: good idea, great images, and well-written. The vote is a tough choice (Thelma & Louise, Addie & her Dad? etc.). That's a lot of fun, though, and the results will be interesting.

I think I got one. But you have to understand that this a movie, that when it was made, it broke ground as the first movie to make the mafia as a setting for a black comedy (“black” meaning as about killing, death, and stealing ) . However, those who fallowed it after it paved the way, did it better and funnier. It became forgotten. It is Prizzi’s Honor (1985). It is a comedy of a hitman and a hitwomen who fall in love, get married and then they find out that they were in the same line of work. Things go well until they are each individually given a contract to kill each other. Films that are direct inheritors of this comedy about hitmen are “Pulp Fiction”, “Get Shorty”, Brad Pitt’s and Angelina Jolie’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, and maybe even “Spy kids” (Yeah, I got a shiver at that one.)

Also add “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. At first they try to kill each other and then they team up together.

Thanks. This is the work of everyone, you and others poll members contributed for this poll.
So it's fair to say that this is the work of everyone.
