Hollywood films and shows tend to focus more on romantic relationships but we all know that the real core of a show or film boils down to the friendships. Yes, all the “bromances,” “ladymances,” and platonic friendships, folks. It’s these friendships that capture our hearts and remain in our memories forever. This is precisely why we decided to compile a list of the 20 greatest friendships that have graced our screens. So get the popcorn and the tissues, things might get a bit mushy.
Cory and Shawn (Boy Meets World)
So sorry, Topanga. But at the end of the day, the core and very real relationship of Boy Meets World was between these two. Cory and Shawn. Everyone around this duo knew they were always meant to be; they were more than the definition of friendship. They were the definition of a true relationship. And when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. We’re also pretty sure that they hugged way more than Cory and Topanga did.
Leslie and Ann (Parks and Recreation)
Don’t deny it, Leslie and Ann’s friendship had you laughing hysterically. But that’s not the most important part now, is it? Nope. Leslie and Ann just made you appreciate your best friend way more. Even when Ann moved to good ol’ Michigan, these politically-minded kids remained in touch regardless of the distance.
