THE AVENGERS stars Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman have been voted the worst movie double act of all time, by critics at a British film magazine.

The pair were universally panned when they appeared in box-office flop in 1998, and experts at TOTAL FILM deem Fiennes' performance "stiff" and Thurman's "robotic".

In second place came the Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty pairing up in 1987's ISHTAR, while Sylvester Stallone and Estelle Getty's STOP! OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT came third.

Total Film's CERI THOMAS says, "There's a lot of competition for the worst film duo, but you have to go a long way to beat Uma Thurman and Ralph Fiennes.

"They look as if they've never even met before, just plonked on the set together on the day of the shoot and told to flirt. Completely unconvincing."
