5. Alice and Rain in “Resident Evil” (2002)
Nothing forms a friendship like fighting a giant corporation responsible for unleashing a biochemical Armageddon on the world. Milla Jovovich as kick-ass hero Alice and Michelle Rodrigues as military gal Rain take control in the first movie in the Resident Evil franchise.
4. Romy and Michelle in “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion”
High school losers Romy and Michelle return to their old high school with a fool-proof plan to impress their old class-mates – well, not quite. They may be slightly bubble-headed but no-one can fault their loyalty to each other and, ultimately, their true selves. Businesswoman Special, anyone?
3. Mary and Rachel in “The Trouble with Angels” (1966)
As newcomers to the St. Francis Academy For Girls, Mary Clancy (Hayley Mills) and Rachel Devery (June Harding) are a match made in hell. The comedy follows their combined exploits at unhinging Mother Superior (Rosalind Russell) and causing as much upheaval as possible. With an unbelievably beautiful score by Jerry Goldsmith, the movie takes a dramatic turn at the end, one which tests the girls’ friendship, their faith, and their future.
2. Enid and Rebecca in “Ghost World” (2001)
Their weirdness kept them together and on the outside in high school. Now that they’ve graduated, their friendship faces new challenges as they face adulthood taking different paths. Scarlett Johansson as Rebecca and Thora Birch as Enid find themselves growing up and growing apart in the real world.
1. Thelma and Louise in “Thelma and Louise” (1992)
Back in the days when selfies were taken with Polaroid cameras, Thelma and Louise spoke to its audience and, depending on who you read, was either a triumph or failure of films with a feminist theme. The movie won an Oscar for its screenwriter, Callie Khouri, and director, Ridley Scott. No matter what you take from the movie, the finale – where Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) clasp hands and make the decision to just keep going – is the ultimate ending to a road movie and the final shot is of a friendship frozen in time.
