Friendship Day Movies To Enjoy

 

Friendship Day

Hanging out with buddies this 4th of August on what some of us know to be Friendship Day? Cool! Here’s a list of awesome movies based on all sorts of friendships (as you’ll soon see) for you and your buddies to enjoy at home, popcorn and pizza included. They’re a quick-list so you can get started buying, renting or downloading it. Since so many of us use the year and cast to decide on flicks I’ve included that too.

You’ll probably end up going on and watching some other flick somewhere, perhaps even replace that popcorn and pizza with all the mind-boggling wonders a bar can offer. But, hey, having fun with friends, cementing the bond so you stay together for years to come and just appreciating the fact that you’re not alone is what this day is gonna be all about.

Here are 10 fun friendship day movies to check out each in 3 categories (hence the 10/3 in the title which you might have been breaking your head about).
