Favorite acting teams?

So I was watching the trailer for Starsky & Hutch and it occured to me how many movies that Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson have been in together. It occurred to me that they seem to have pretty good chemistry on the screen. So I started thinking . . . what other acting teams are good together and have evidenced it by working together on a number of films?

So far I can think of:

- Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson
- The Cusack Family (but John and Joan work together the best)
- Matt Damon & Ben Affleck (whether or not you like them, they are really good as a pair in movies . . . Dogma, Good Will Hunting, etc.)
- The Christopher Guest "Ensamble" (man do they work well together)
- Jack Lemmon & Walter Matthau


What others can you think of?

hahah, I may get people to laugh at me on this one... I'm only going to list my favorite team...

Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker

I like most of the classic teams as well but I think these two are just hilarious together.

Can TV count? If so, I'd say David Cross and Bob Odenkirk.

Tom Hanks and Gary Sinise

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Matthew Lillard? j/k
