This week’s movie list diverges a little bit from the tracks I have previously laid.

Our theme, as introduced in the title, is *Good Friends*.

In this week’s list, instead of reviewing five of my favorite films, I am sharing with you ten of my favorite movies about good friendships.  

Instead of telling you what I most enjoyed about these movies, I want you to tell me what your favorite moments/elements are! Or, if your favorite friendship movie isn't included here, then I invite you to share it with all of us by adding it in the comments below!

I’ve been enjoying getting your recommendations for other movies I might enjoy, so I thought I could make my own friends a part of this week’s list.

As a bonus, by contributing to this week's movie list, you'll receive one entry in the December Movie Contest (we need a snazzier title for this contest, but I'll get back to you on this later!)

So here’s what we‘re gonna do... (It’ll only take a few minutes, and for your efforts you could win a $25 Cinemark Gift Card*).

1.)Leave a comment here telling us about your favorite friendship movie, or you favorite moment from one of the movies already mentioned. Maybe it’s a movie about something else altogether, that you went and saw with your best friend! Share as little or as much as you’d like!

2.) Copy your comment from here and paste it into the comments at [Link Removed] (where this list is also posted).

3.) Keep your fingers crossed that you‘re the big winner!

So, without further adieu, here are feathermaye’s choices for the best of the best in friendship movies, in no particular order.

Stand By Me

Wizard of Oz

Boys On The Side

The Color Purple

Napoleon Dynamite

Dumb and Dumber

Terms of Endearment

Superbad

ET

Reign Over Me

*Random drawing of all eligible entries to be held on 12/28/2008.

    • Feathermaye, the first friendship movie that came to mind was “Thelma & Louise.”

      The first time I saw that movie (seen it 12 times), I was struck by the unconditional friendship of the 2 women.  I do not have such a friendship in my own life, God knows I NEED it, but, I can only imagine the things those two could have done had they not decided in the blink of an eye that they would rather die than spend the rest of their lives in prison.  (Hope that didn’t give it away)!

      The women decided to go on a girlfriend trip cross-country to take a break from their lackluster lives and find adventure.  They found it, alright and just kept on finding it.  Now, they weren’t particularly looking for the type of “adventures” that they actually met with, but, for them, they were finally LIVING!  

      Living without the demands of husbands and work, and living in the pure delight of each other’s company.  Thelma was the protective, motherly, rational one while Louise was the one who did the most growing up and discovering herself along the way.

      Without giving much more away, did I mention that a rather FOXY Brad Pitt was thrown in the mix!!!

      I have also realized that the reason I like “Thelma & Louise” this much because it so far removed from my own experience or anything that I could or WOULD be allowed to do.  I believe this is a form of living vicariously through others.  (I should see someone about that)!  While I could relate to the Thelma character more, it discomforts me to admit that I could just as easily adopt some of the Louise’s traits, given the WRONG circumstances.  That part of me must be tamed!

      Enjoy!

    • robinesque, that’s a great review of a great movie! I really appreciate your participation! Thelma and Louise was on my top twenty, but didn’t make the cut into my top ten. I’m glad someone else appreciated them!

    • Beaches and the theme song...

      I had a wonderful friend, Christine, who lived in my apt complex when I was single. We became good friends and shared a love of animals, cats in particular. We worked together, hung out, met guys, etc.

      Life went on and we drifted apart, but always sent cards and called when we could. She attended my wedding with her brother and i just adored her and her family.  

      One year i did not receive a christmas card. Figured life was busy and maybe she forgot or what not.
      The next year i sent a card and received and email from her fiance‘.

      He thought he had contacted me....she had died the past christmas in a snowmobiling accident....My heart broke

      She had always said that the movie and the song always made her think of me. That i always let her take the lead, and that i was her hero. I remember one letter she had wrote me...she said remember beaches...you are the wind beneath my wings....

    • now my take on it...

      two friends sooooo completely different. One rich one not so rich.
      Yet through all their differences they were the best of friends.

      And up until the very end, they held true to that friendship, even through illness and death.

    • My Dog Skip really drives home the “man’s best friend” theme. Frankie Munoz’s character has less and less time as he grows, but the dog is ever true to the end.

      From your list, I’d say “Wizard of Oz” is the ultimate buddy movie. 4 friends working together for a common goal, and looking out for the others’ best interests!
