I think it was already discussed in Image Picking.

The question is meaningless, because it can't happen. If an unstoppable force exists, then by definition there can be no immovable objects. If an immovable object exists, then there are no unstoppable forces. The two cannot exist in the same universe. It's a logical impossibility.

You can go to Trope Talk if you're interesting in discussing that bit, but this page is for talking about the state of the description and examples.

I have my own theory on the whole thing:

It all depends on how unstoppable a force is or how immovable an object is. Thus one of three things could happen:

1) If Force is stronger than Object, Force would move Object. (F > O = M)

2) If Object is stronger than Force, Object would stop Force. (O < F = S)

3) If Force and Object are of equal strength, Force would penetrate Object, leaving a hole behind. (O = F = P)

Thank you for your time.

I think that if the Unstoppable Force were to ever crash into the Immovable Object, they would simply switch places (the Unstoppable Force becomes the Immovable Object and vice versa). The reason this is is because all of the UF's momentum (which is probably infinite, hence the "unstoppable") is transferred to the IO. Thus, the IO becomes the UF, and the UF, without its momentum powering it, becomes entrenched where it sits and becomes the IO.
