Isn't it bromantic?

submit to reddit

This week, 50/50 hits cinemas, a "cancer comedy" that sees Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, Adam, get diagnosed with "the big C". His best mate, Kyle (Seth Rogen), is there to support him every step of the way, bringing film yet another super best friendship to add to the pantheon of cinema's best heterosexual life partners. To celebrate their inclusion, here are 33 other bezzies, from Woody and Buzz to R2D2 and C3PO. It even includes a friendship between a man and a woman - imagine!

There are, of course, hundreds of other best friends out there, so let us know which are you favourites and who you'd put on the list in the comment box below.

Woody and Buzz

As seen in: The Toy Story trilogy (1995 through 2010)

Played by: Tom Hanks and Tim Allen

Hangers on / third wheel: Bo Peep (Annie Potts) and the rest of the gang.

Defining moment of friendship:

“The rocket!”
“The match!”

Sure, the match eventually goes out as a van blasts past, but this little exchange sums up Woody and Buzz’s newfound friendship at the end of the original Toy Story, as they begin to think in synch. From head-spinning fisticuffs under a car, to blasting into a delivery truck on the back of a lit firework, for the next 15 years the pair are inseparable. Heck, it's their theme song. Sing it with us now, "You've got a friend in me..."
