GOTTA LOVE A GOOD BROMANCE
In This Means War, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine play characters that have heterosexual man-love for each other, otherwise known as a bromance. In this feature, we will take a look at other bromance relationships in films, including: Kirk and Spock in Star Trek, Seth and Evan in Superbad and Riggs and Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon series.
KIRK & SPOCK
Before he was FDR in This Means War, Chris Pine was one-half of TV and film’s most dynamic duo – Kirk and Spock of Star Trek. The two leaders of the USS enterprise started off bumpy but their friendship evolved as they always had each other’s back as they try to save the universe. Though one may never have predicted it, there’s no denying the bond of brotherhood between the farm boy from Iowa and the Vulcan half breed.
SETH & EVAN
Bullied by the popular kids, Seth and Evan found solace in each other’s friendship as of the nerdiest kids in their high school. Unlike Kirk and Spock, Seth and Evan of Superbad aren’t bound by their common fight to save the universe. Instead, it’s the need to get laid before they graduate high school that pushes the bromance between these two and the friendship between Seth and Evan gets cemented when the pair makes a declaration of their man-love to each other at the end of the film.
RIGGS & MURTAUGH
The Lethal Weapon series could have easily been another buddy-cop set of films but the chemistry between Mel Gibson and Danny Glover made audiences love the bromance between these two troubled cops. Starting off as reluctant partners in the first film, these two developed into life-long friends who protected each other as they solved murders and crimes and saw each other began their own set of families amidst their own personal problems.
BUZZ & WOODY
So they may not be real people but Buzz and Woody emulate bromance in the toy and animated world. When they first meet each other, Woody feels threatened by Buzz as feels replaced as Andy’s favorite toy, not to mention that Buzz’s optimistic and gung-ho attitude annoys Woody’s careful ways. However as the films progress, so does their friendship, especially after they realize that they both just want to make Andy happy.
