15+ Bromances That Make Your Heart Happy (2023)

Male camaraderie has found itsway into film and television programming for as long as programmatic television has existed. Shows like the Lone Ranger, Wagon Train, and Bonanza were very popular representations of the guy-love phenomenon, but because these men were depicted as rugged cowboys on the plains no one discussed the gravitas of their bonds. It is only recently that a term was coined to adequately/accurately capture the true nature of this male bonding/love being exhibited for our viewing pleasure. It has since been dubbed BROMANCE! And who doesn’t love a good bromance?

Two guys who are each other’s “person.” The guy they spend the most time with and bond with on special level. The guy that gets him like none other. All dudes have ’em, but they don’t rarely discuss that level of intimacy that they have with another man. So, when we get a glimpse of it on the “big” or “small” screen it’s fun to watch them unfold.

Here is a list of the very best bromances out there! Enjoy!

15+ Bromances That Make Your Heart Happy (7)

Who would have thought that a show about a zombie apocalypse would produce a good bromance? Now it is safe to assume that if you put a bunch of people together and have them navigate their way through constant life or death situations strong bonds will form. But a to think that a such a bond would form between a straight and arrow cop and redneck outlaw in not one that your thought would immediately stray to. When Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon met it was NOT a bro-at-first-sight. Actually, Mr. Dixon tried to kill Grimes after he handcuffed his brother, Merle, to pipe on rooftop of a building whenhe wouldn’t play well with others. Many of us thought that their relationship was doomed from the get-go, but with the absence of big-brother Merle, Daryl was able to grow and develop healthy – well as healthy of a relationship as you can get in zombie apocalypse – with another man and others. His place within the group became less adversarial and more of a supportive member of the group. Where Rick is clearly the leader of group, he relies on Daryl as his second in command to provide consensus, support, a sounding board, and to call him out when the need arises. This bromance is important and works or more levels than either of them realize.

15+ Bromances That Make Your Heart Happy (8)

This bromance is built on mentorship [Denny to Alan] and recognition of each other’s brilliance in practicing and cultivating the law to best suit there needs. Denny is a staunch Republican and is the perfect foil for Alan’s heavily left-leaning political ways. This duo is a wonderful Yin to the other’s Yang. In the end, what makes this bromance worthy of inclusion to this list is that fact that at the series end Denny is diagnosed with Alzheimer/Dementia and in order to appoint Alan as his heir and give him medical power of attorney, the two hetero-life-partners marry.

9. Seth and Evan from Superbad

15+ Bromances That Make Your Heart Happy (9)

Who’s bad? These two lovable geeks, that’s who! Evan and Seth have been attached at the hip for so long that no one at their high schools thinks of one without the other. This hetero partnership has been in effect since childhood and they do virtually everything together and like it that way. Where Seth is slovenly, rude, obscene mess of young man, Evan is the a precocious, sweet, and thoughtful person that you can’t help but love. This bromance is born out of mutual like and sustains itself bey commonalities of not quite fitting in, their unsuccessful turns with the fairer sex, and their life-long shared experiences. If the cops broke up your underage party would you be willing to carry your best bud to safety and out of the clutches of cops? Even if your mad at him? Seth will to do it.

15+ Bromances That Make Your Heart Happy (15)

Although their friendship was built on deception and lies, you cannot deny the connection that these two men shared. We’re not talking about the new iteration of this story, we talking about the original Point Break circa 1991. Keanu Reeves and the late, great Patrick Swayze‘s onscreen portrayal of Johnny Utah – former college football star turned FBI agent – and Bodhi – surfing guru turned seasonal bank robber extraordinaire – is cult classic bromance for the ages. As Johnny learns have how to surf, he also falls in love with the sport and the adrenaline rush that he feels when he’s out on the waves. Utah is also drawn to Bodhi’s philosophies about life and world. The two were kindred spirits on different sides of the law. They are each drawn towards the intellect and wildness in each other. When Johnny has his first chance to stop Bodhi after a foot chase, he cannot bring himself to shoot him in order to stop him.

A bond built on mutual respect and adrenaline does a good bromance make.

2. Joey and Chandler from Friends

15+ Bromances That Make Your Heart Happy (16)

No one can deny that Chandler Bing and Joey Tribbiani have a connection. These two long-time housemates that supported each others shenanigans and argued like siblings. When the pair met it was not “love at first sight.” Actually, Joey thought that Chandler was gay, which was an assumption made by quite a few of the passing guest characters during the duration of the series. Once “Trib-Bing” became a twosome they were inseparable. Chandler often paid all the bills, purchased food, and footed the bills for head-shots for the often out of work actor. In this relationship Bing is obviously the more adult of the two and he brings a softer side to the duo. Tribbiani is his gruffer, more masculine counterpart that brings confidence and real “know-how” with the ladies. This domestic partnership also extended to pet ownership when the two adopted a duckling (The Duck) and a chick (The Chick) that lived in their bathroom tub. Joey and Chandler’s bromance is legendary and never-ending.

John and Turk met at the College of William and Mary in Virginia where they were roommates. John and Chris both attended medical school and become doctors – all the while remaining roommates – and they even served their residencies at the same facility, Sacred Heart Hospital.Their friendship is sustained by their brother-like, and sometimes co-dependent, relationship that is fed by their shared quirky sense of humor. They enjoy doing almost everything together including “dramatic slow running” sequences, pretending to be multi-ethnic Siamese doctors, and robot dancing. JD and Turk have also been known to stage themselves as the world’s tallest doctor. When J.D. is unable to spend time with Turk is prone to bouts of depression until they can be together again. When Chris returned from his honeymoon with Nurse Carla their reunion was epic. Carla is remarked, “One Day he’ll love me like that.” She also refers to John as Turk’s boyfriend. Even though J.D. will eventually marry Elliot, his bond with Turk is forever strong. What makes this the best BROMANCE of them all is that these two are a self-professed bromnance and they explained and immortalized their relationship in the duet, “Guy Love.” “It’s Guy Love/That’s all it is/It’s Guy Love/he’s mine, I’m his/There’s nothing gay about it in our eyes.”
