A buddy film is a film in which the central characters are two friends, often of the same sex, who appear together throughout the film. The "buddies" in such films may be friends, relations other then by marriage (i.e. brothers, sisters, or cousins), or partners in some job such as the police force. The buddy cop film is a popular sub-genre of the buddy film. Buddy films usually feature male characters, but there have also been some female buddy films as well.

Some examples of buddy films (other than buddy cop films) include:

Wayne's World
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Dude, Where's My Car?
Wedding Crashers
Thelma and Louise
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
A Night at the Roxbury
Dumb & Dumber
The films of Cheech and Chong
Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
