* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'', Captain Haddock tells Tintin that one of the people in the bunk (the one sleeping with a rat) was [[{{Squick}} accused for animal husbandry]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animalympics}}'' features a pair of marathon runners, Kit and René, who are a lioness and goat respectively, falling in love while running beside each other despite never saying anything out loud to one another onscreen. There are a number of smaller examples as well, such as a husband-and-wife figure skating team of a lizard and a hen.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BeeMovie,'' Barry, a bee, is clearly infatuated with Vanessa, a human florist. That being said, it's not clear if they're officially together at the end; if so, they're a ChastityCouple for fairly obvious reasons.



* Though no interspecies couples appear in either ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' movie, Ellie is quicker to conclude that Manny is "part possum" than that she is not a possum at all. Manny is bemused and Crash and Eddy are dismissive ("You wish [you were part possum]"), but no real indication is made that such a thing is unheard of.
** It's also interesting that when Eddy worries that they'll have to repopulate the Earth, Crash points out that if their group makes up the last of the living creatures, "everyone left is either a dude or [their] sister." No mention is made of the various species that make up the small group.
** Scrat and Scratte, although superficially similar, probably aren't of the same species: she's a ''flying'' squirrel and he's not (and is surprised to discover she is one). Possibly the writers simply didn't know that flying and non-flying squirrels are only distantly related. Or they did it for [[RuleOfFunny the lulz]] like they did with everything else in the movies.
*** Judging by the fourth movie, one can make an argument that this is really a case of BizarreSexualDimorphism since [[spoiler: Scratlantis]] shows creatures that look like both Scrat and Scratte.
** Mama T. rex and Sid the Sloth. They each try to raise the babies in their own way, Mama brings Sid into the warm cave for the night, and [[spoiler: later risks her life to rescue him from [[BigBad Rudy]] the albino Baryonyx.]]
** The fourth film shows Louis, a molehog, having a crush on Manny and Ellie's daughter, Peaches.
* ''WesternAnimation/MarsNeedsMoms'' has one between Gribble (human) and Ki (martian).
* This appears to be a very popular trope for ''[=DreamWorks=]'' to use in their movies. Examples include:

* The Danish ''JungledyretHugo'' series center around Rita (a fox), Hugo, (a koala-like animal of unknown species), and their blossoming love for each other.
* In ''Animation/LeafieAHenIntoTheWild'' Leafie is a hen who is in love with a duck. It is unrequited as Wanderer already has a mate. [[spoiler:After Wanderer's mate is killed by the one-eyed weasel and he makes a HeroicSacrifice, Leafie [[HappilyAdopted adopts]] his hatchling.]]

At one point she says "Maybe we're not even ''compatible''..." (glances over...) "...OK, we're compatible.."
* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', human Fred Kwan hooks up with tentacled alien Laliari who transforms part-way to her original non-human form while they're both making out. Fred doesn't mind this and, in fact, seems to -- ''ahem'' -- rather enjoy it. The PluckyComicRelief Guy, however, is in the area when they begin, and [[SickAndWrong is absolutely disgusted]].

* The ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' franchise has two interspecies romances as major plot points, the first (chronologically) being between lycan Lucian and vampire Sonja (which produced a lycan-vampire hybrid that unfortunately never got to be born), the second being between vampire soldier Selene and vampire-lycan hybrid Michael (although his hybrid nature was brought about by mingling viruses, not through sexual reproduction; he was born human). Selene's falling for Michael also makes her an Example of DefectingForLove.
** Interestingly enough, the FantasticRacism in this franchise is fairly well explored and deconstructed, particularly considering that both vampires and lycans are essentially mutated humans (due to an inheritable blood disease). The fact that a hybrid between the two races results in a creature that has the power to annihilate them both if it so chooses becomes an - if not the - major revolving plot point for the series.
* ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' features a romance between Howard (a male anthropomorphic duck from another dimension) and Beverly (a female human from what is supposed to be our world).
* Played with in ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' (apart from the traditional Kermit/Piggy OfficialCouple). Masterson Rat, waiting tables at a restaurant, asks Brooke Shields if she believes in Interspecies Dating. She doesn't make the situation any better with her reply of, "I've dated a few rats before, if that's what you mean."
* The plot of ''What Planet Are You From?'' involves an advanced human-like alien played by Garry Shandling assigned to mate and impregnate a woman then bring the baby to his planet. His planet's people are emotionless, reproduce by cloning, and their erect penis makes a mechanical noise.

* In ''Film/{{District 9}}'', the government issues the false story that Wikus had sex with a Prawn and gained an alien STD as a way of explaining his BodyHorror. Inter-species prostitution also occurs (unless that was [[UnreliableNarrator also propaganda]]).
* A subversion from ''Film/EarthGirlsAreEasy'': as the alien Mac calmly takes off his clothes, preparing to have the human Valerie, she keeps rambling on, trying half-heartedly to talk herself out of doing it. At one point she says "Maybe we're not even ''compatible''..." (glances over...) "...OK, we're compatible.."
* ''Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid To Ask)'' had a romance between Creator/GeneWilder and a sheep.
* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', human Fred Kwan hooks up with tentacled alien Laliari who transforms part-way to her original non-human form while they're both making out. Fred doesn't mind this and, in fact, seems to -- ''ahem'' -- rather enjoy it. The PluckyComicRelief Guy, however, is in the area when they begin, and [[SickAndWrong is absolutely disgusted]].
-->'''Guy''': Oh, ''that's not right!''
* ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' features a romance between Howard (a male anthropomorphic duck from another dimension) and Beverly (a female human from what is supposed to be our world).



* ''Film/ShipOfMonsters'' involves a MarsNeedsWomen plot about the women of Venus kidnapping men across space so they can repopulate their species. They aren't too picky judging by how monstrous their would-be mates were--including a furry spider-like monster, a short martian with an enormous brain, and a skeleton. Finally there's the hero Lauriano who falls in love with Gamma.

* ''Film/ShipOfMonsters'' involves a MarsNeedsWomen plot about In ''Series/KamenRiderFourze & [[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]: Movie War Megamax'' Gentarou Kisaragi, the women of Venus kidnapping men across space so they can repopulate their species. They aren't too picky judging by how monstrous their would-be mates were--including a furry spider-like monster, a short martian with an enormous brain, and a skeleton. Finally there's the hero Lauriano who aforementioned Fourze, falls in love with Gamma.a alien substance known as SOLU that has taken up the form of high schooler Nadeshiko Misaki. And becomes a Kamen Rider, too, doubling as a BattleCouple!
* Definitely present, albeit unconsummated and one-sided, in ''Film/KingKong1933''. Creator/PeterJackson's [[Film/KingKong2005 remake]] made it more of a mutual platonic crush on both sides.



** In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', Peter Quill is a bit of [[BoldlyComing Casanova]] when it comes to [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe humanoid alien women]] (as well as notably having "lain with [[StarfishAlien an A'askvarian.]]") He also is strongly attracted to his fellow Guardian Gamora, and eventually learns that [[HalfHumanHybrid he's the result of one of these]] between his mother Meredith and a "space man."

to:

* Nagisa Oshima's ''Max, Mon Amour'' deals with a love triangle between a British diplomat, his French wife, and a chimpanzee.
* ''Film/MenInBlackII'' hinted at this between Kay (Creator/TommyLeeJones) and an alien princess sometime in the past. Jay fell hard for a woman who also turned out to be a {{Human Alien|s}}, although she [[spoiler:left Earth]] before it got very far. Interestingly, it's implied the said {{Human Alien|s}} was Kay's daughter with the aforementioned alien princess.
* In ''Film/{{Michael}}'', it is implied that John Travolta's eponymous archangel character has sex with human Anita.
* Played with in ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' (apart from the traditional Kermit/Piggy OfficialCouple). Masterson Rat, waiting tables at a restaurant, asks Brooke Shields if she believes in Interspecies Dating. She doesn't make the situation any better with her reply of, "I've dated a few rats before, if that's what you mean."
* Prominent in the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series:
** Davy Jones and the goddess Calypso in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'' and ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd''.
** Philip (human) and Syrena (mermaid) from ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides''.
* ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes2001'' has Leo, a human, and Ari, an evolved/advanced Chimpanzee. They kiss at the end right before he goes back to Earth.
* In the original ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968'', Taylor also asks Zira for a kiss, but more as a good luck charm since she's already married to Cornelius.
* ''Film/ShipOfMonsters'' involves a MarsNeedsWomen plot about the women of Venus kidnapping men across space so they can repopulate their species. They aren't too picky judging by how monstrous their would-be mates were--including a furry spider-like monster, a short martian with an enormous brain, and a skeleton. Finally there's the hero Lauriano who falls in love with Gamma.
* In ''Film/StarTrek'' half-human, half-Vulcan Spock is in a relationship with human Uhura. And of course there's his parents.
* ''Film/TankGirl'': Tank Girl and Booga are a human and a Mutant-kangaroo-that-was-formerly-a-dog.
* Film/{{Ted}} and Tami-Lynn.
* In ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'', Michelangelo has a crush on April O’Neil. However, it is not acknowledged by April. Michelangelo tells his brothers that he has bibs on April after they meet her and he refers to her as his girlfriend when he realizes that she is the hogosha. Mikey is always trying to flirt with her and be romantic, though her safety is his biggest concern when they are in danger.
* ''Film/TronLegacy'' has an interesting example of this trope. While there's no sex and barely any kissing, it's quite clear that [[spoiler: Sam Flynn (human) and Quorra (ISO)]] fell in love with each other in the second half of the film. What woke up Kevin from his meditation on the Solar Sailer? [[spoiler: A conversation between the two about sunrises and Quorra's beauty.]] [[IWantGrandkids Kevin smiles,]] because they found love in the least likely place.
** Things could actually go pretty well, since [[spoiler: Quorra became flesh and blood at the end, thus being a sub-trope of RoboShip has been averted]]. It was actually quite refreshing to see that in spite of all this, they kept things so subtle that they avoided what could have easily gotten the characters StrangledByTheRedString. Since it was pretty obvious what the audience would be thinking by that point, the writers knew better than to throw it in their faces.
* The ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' franchise has two interspecies romances as major plot points, the first (chronologically) being between lycan Lucian and vampire Sonja (which produced a lycan-vampire hybrid that unfortunately never got to be born), the second being between vampire soldier Selene and vampire-lycan hybrid Michael (although his hybrid nature was brought about by mingling viruses, not through sexual reproduction; he was born human). Selene's falling for Michael also makes her an Example of DefectingForLove.
** Interestingly enough, the FantasticRacism in this franchise is fairly well explored and deconstructed, particularly considering that both vampires and lycans are essentially mutated humans (due to an inheritable blood disease). The fact that a hybrid between the two races results in a creature that has the power to annihilate them both if it so chooses becomes an - if not the - major revolving plot point for the series.
* The plot of ''What Planet Are You From?'' involves an advanced human-like alien played by Garry Shandling assigned to mate and impregnate a woman then bring the baby to his planet. His planet's people are emotionless, reproduce by cloning, and their erect penis makes a mechanical noise.
* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': Roger and Jessica, who is a Rabbit by marriage only. Also, it's pretty clear that Eddie Valiant wasn't expecting her to ''literally'' be playing patty-cake with Mr. Acme. Does human/toon romance count as this trope if the toon is human(oid)? There's also apparently at least one other instance which doesn't appear onscreen; Doom tells the weasels that they'll DieLaughing "[[MixAndMatchCritters just like your idiot hyena cousins]]".
* ''{{Film/Zoo}}'' is a documentary about an interspecies romance that went horribly wrong.
