August Movies: Bromances We Love

Who doesn’t love a buddy flick?

You know, the kind of buddies that have each other’s back, sometimes even at their own expense? Everyone’s got their favorite, and here are a few of ours:

Wedding Crashers (2005, R)
Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson

 

Straight-up funny from start to finish, John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey are two guys who know how to have fun, but don’t count on finding love. The movie’s made complete with a cameo from Will Ferrell, as the guy you don’t want as your grown son—unless you like making meatloaf.

 

The Outsiders (1983, PG-13)
Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze

 

Who knew back in ’83 that just about every single one of these greasers would hit it big in the movies? Here’s a virtual who’s who of Hollywood—and a classic story about friends helping friends when they need it most.

 

E.T. (1982, PG)
Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore

 

Not everyone’s best friend is a human. For Elliot, it’s a little guy from outer space, and probably the cutest alien every to grace the silver screen. Try not to cry at the end, I dare you.

 

The Shawshank Redemption (1994, R)
Morgan Freeman, Tim Robbins

 

Another top-notch tearjerker about two men finding redemption for themselves and each other within the walls of a tough penitentiary.

 

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969, M)
Robert Redford, Paul Newman

 

Really, you think we’d write up a list of our favorite bromances and NOT have a Robert Redford flick on here somewhere? This one’s an epic bromance by which all other bromances are rated.
