The moment of Bromance is so NOW.
With Kem and Chris’s special bromance melting our hearts in the Love Island villa and Frank Ocean serenading Brad Pitt on stage at this weekend’s FYF festival – bromances are all around us. To celebrate this most special kind of man love, we’ve pulled together some of the most heart-warming and memorable bromances as depicted in TV and film.
Cult comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Seann William 'Stifler' Scott as a pair of young dopes who misplace their wheels after a wild night out and embark on the most epic of bromances. All they know is there's a year's supply of chocolate pudding in the fridge, and their girlfriends are furious with them for trashing their house and forgetting their anniversaries. Turns out to be a far more complicated situation than their little brains can handle. Sweet.
From beer to maternity... A one-night stand leads to nine months of fear and self-loathing for work-shy stoner Ben (40 Year Old Virgin's, Seth Rogen) and hot TV presenter Alison (Grey's Anatomy star, Katherine Heigl). Alison’s pessimistic brother-in-law Pete (Paul Rudd), guides Ben through all the dramas an impending family brings with it and they form a close bromance bond in the process. Without doubt the funniest film of 2007, Knocked Up will make you laugh till your waters break.
A couple of high school buddies - slobby Jonah Hill and nerdy Michael Cera - are set to go their separate ways... but not before they've blitzed their way through a night of booze, sex and shooting up police patrol cars. Both manic and tender, this is an unerringly accurate portrait of male friendship penned by the team that knocked out Knocked Up.
This bromance was born from rivalry…Woody was always Andy’s favourite toy until the arrival of new kid on the block, Buzz Lightyear. Through a series of adventures and mishaps, Woody and Buzz realise they must pull together and join forces to escape the clutches of Andy’s evil neighbour, Sid, who tortures toys for his own amusement.
Gus Van Sant's much-loved, Oscar-winning drama stars Matt Damon as a troubled young maths genius and Robin Williams as the therapist who helps him deal with his inner demons, while grieving for his own dead wife. But it’s the bromance between Will and his best friend Chuckie (Ben Affleck) as two south Boston boys that takes centre stage as they drink together, fight together and joke together. How d'ya like them apples?
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star as undercover cops posing as high-school students, trading in their guns and badges for backpacks and using their youthful appearances to tear down a drug ring that has its roots in the school. Through their undercover mission, they relive the highs and lows of their school years, and a beautiful bromance plays out for all to see.
Sky Atlantic's epic tale of lust, treachery, and bloodshed follows seven noble families as they fight for control of the kingdom of Westeros, and as the land becomes consumed by political intrigue, dark forces begin to stir beyond the Great Wall in the North. But amidst the death and despair, the bromance between Jon Snow and Samwell Tarly has become a pinnacle relationship tugging at our heart strings, defined by unrequited respect and mutual admiration.
Following the constant drama in the lives of 6 twenty-something year-olds living in New York City, Friends’ dynamic duo Chandler and Joey still hold one of the top bromance spots on TV. They had their ups and downs over the years, living across the hall and together, but were always inseparable. Forget Monica, Joey was the only ever pea in Chandler’s pod.
