Top 5 Buddy Movies


by Jake McMillan

Here are 5 movies that not only epitomise friendship, but are better films because of the chemistry of the buddy relationship.


1. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Paul Newman and Robert Redford are simply superb as amiable bank-robbers Butch and Sundance portraying a very real and genuine friendship.

The nature of their conversation whilst surrounded by the Bolivian Army and facing almost certain death reveals their friendship:


2. Lethal Weapon 2

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover sizzle as the odd pairing of cops, Riggs crazy and out of control and Murtaugh the careful good family man who is about to retire.


3. Superbad

Jonah Hill and Michael Cera as best friends Seth and Evan, but are about to head off to different colleges.


4. Hear No Evil, See No Evil

Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor are at their very comedic best as a deaf guy and a blind guy who get inadvertently involved witnessing a murder and have the killers chasing them.


5. Bad Boys

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are cops that don’t initially see eye to eye, but become best buds.
