Be with someone that you have a lot of chemistry but not many common interests or someone with less chemistry and a lot more common interests?

I'm holding out for chemistry and common interests.

However, in the hypothetical situation you describe, I'd rather be with someone who I have chemistry but not common interests, as long as we have common values.

Why do I have to pick? Anyway, common interests can help boost chemistry. Sharing in fun experiences together can be great foreplay.

I agree, Chemistry and not many common interests (but I would have to agree in having common values).

In fact having different or a lack of common interests brings much to a relationship as you can learn, grow and share those interests within the relationship.

I think its a balance thing, the common interests. I love meeting people who are into different things than I am, so that I can learn new stuff and be exposed to new things. But there needs to be enough in common to keep it going longer term-- chemistry is great but not enough. :)
