    Here are the ones I think of:

    Kurt Russell + Viggo Mortensen = Brothers... no... CLONES.

    Matt Damon + Mark Wahlberg = Brothers

    Matt Damon/Mark Wahlberg + Kevin Bacon = Father and sons

    Jodie Foster + Helen Hunt = Sisters

    Helen Hunt + Leelee Sobieski = Mother and daughter

    Chevy Chase + Will Ferrell = Father and son, without a doubt.

    Robert Downey Jr. + That bloke from Emmerdale + J.D. from Scrubs' brother = Brothers

    George Wendt + John Goodman = Brothers.

    Alfred Molina + That bloke from Scrubs = Brothers

    Ed Norton + Josh Stewart = Brothers

    Ed Norton/Josh Stewart + Kevin Spacey = Father and sons

    Ed Norton/Josh Stewart/Kevin Spacey + Robert Lindsay = Uncle and brother to the other lot

    Thin Jonah Hill + Drew Carey = Father and Son

    Randy Couture + Jason Statham = Cousins (part-way through The Expendables, I forgot Couture was in it and thought I was still watching Statham)

    Lauren Bacall + Laura Prepon = Mother and daughter

    Bacall today:

    Made In Dagenham's Sally Hawkins + Dagenham's Stacey Solomon = Sisters (I know Stacey's not an actor, but 'Made In Dagenham'? On a plate.)

    I mean...

    Carrie Fisher + Jessica Hecht + Alanis Morissette (hey, she played GOD) + Hilary S**** + Jane Leeves = Some combination of mother/daughter/sister

    I know there was another film I saw that I truly thought was starring someone else. Shame I can't remember it.

    NOW YOU.

    Does anyone know of a male/female combination?

    Elijah Wood Daniel Radcliffe and Tobey Macguire could play brothers. In fact you could probably stick Jake Gyllenhaal in there as well.
