Every time I see the commercials for the film Bridesmaids, I laugh incessantly. The film—starring one of our favorite funny girls Maya Rudolph—is about a group of friends who gear up to send their homegirl off with a bang before she gets hitched. Think: A female version of The Hangover.

Although I’ve never been a bridesmaid, I’ve heard tons of war stories about exactly what goes on when you’re charged with helping your friend get down the aisle. And it isn’t always pretty.

Watching the trailer for Bridesmaids made me think about all the buddy movies I’ve loved over the years. The Goonies, Hangin’ With the Homeboys, The Best Man, Clueless, and Mean Girls come to mind as just a few of my favorite flicks about friendship.

Not only do I love films that showcase the complex (and hilarious) bonds between friends, but also the best part about friend films is rounding up your crew and watching the movie together.

So while I’ll be heading to the theater with my girls this weekend to see Bridesmaids, Clutchettes and Gents, tell me…

What’s your favorite friend flick?

Let’s talk about it!

    As much as I HATE to admit it, I LOVE Dude Where’s My Car. I don’t know why, it’s just amazing, as is Road Trip. But, as a buddy movie and a romantic drama, I love Jerry McGuire. Cuba and Tom are awesome and I always cry at the end when they hug after the big game.

    Hangover. I hope this film is not attempting to be a female version of it.

    Although Love Jones was based on “Darius” and “Nina’s” relationship I really loved the friendship Nina and Josie had… Waiting to exhale had a great buddy story line. I would love to see more black “buddy films”.

    I saw an early screening of Bridesmaids, and it was FANTASTIC!!! So many LOL moments! Definitely worth the money!

    One of my favorite and ULTIMATE buddy movies ever is Brown Sugar!!! I know two people who are just like Dre and Sydney and it is painfully cute how the keep up their BFF charade. Another is Jumping the Broom is a good buddy movie. Granted it just came out, but I was thoroughly entertained by that one!
