Man love, it’s something we don’t talk about enough here, or anywhere for that matter. Thank goodness for bromance movies, right? Too much pressure is held on the shoulders of men to be strong, resilient in the face of danger and protective of that which he loves. But really, we just want to cry like little girls and tell each other how much they mean to us, and man-love movies are the way to do it. So we’re wrangling the bromance’s best damn comedies ever to help you express yourself a little bit better.
Whether you go as far back as Butch Cassidy and his Sundance buddy or even the lady-bromances of Thelma & Louise, there’s a little bit of something for every man. From the most classic idiot man-child man-love scenes of all time to the most daring buddy cop movies, let us help you tell your fellow man how much they mean to you this week.
We’re all going to get nuclear bombed or swept by a hurricane eventually anyway, might as well say something you mean.
Man-Love Movies: The 12 Damn Bromance Comedies Out There
It's been 10 years since Superbad but it's still the most beautiful thing in the world when two men profess their plutonic love for one another, followed by a few boops.
"Wayne's World" (1992)
Two guys fight to keep themselves from becoming too famous while trying to save their women from Rob Lowe. Seen that story a hundred times, but this is the best version.
"Dumb & Dumber" (1994)
Two guys travel across the country to return a briefcase to a hottie. They were about as close as two non-blood-related men can be, at least until you throw a hot redhead into the mix.
"Wedding Crashers" (2005)
One guy follows the love of his life, while the other gets dry-humped and molested at night by two different, very strange men in a strange household. That's real man love right there.
"The 40 Year Old Virgin" (2005)
Three dudes try to help a guy get laid, despite his being the most unfuckable person ever. My friends never did that for me, always trying to screw my girlfriends actually!
"Tommy Boy" (1995)
One guy takes forever to graduate college while the other, who climbed the ladder like the rest of them, gets surpassed by the nepotism of this giant idiot man-child. But when they sing "Eres Tu" together...that's magic.
"21 Jump Street" (2012)
Two boyish-looking coppers perform an undercover sting back in high school and bond over drugs.
"The Hangover" (2009)
Two guys take their best friend to Vegas for a bachelor party but Zach Galifianakis drugs the four-man wolfpack into a dark bromance with Mike Tyson's tiger and a random baby.
"Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" (2004)
Two stoners search for hamburgers together. It's the oldest story of man.
"I Love You, Man" (2009)
Some dork can't figure out why the cool guy wants to hang with him. Turns out Jason Segel is kind of a dork, too.
