    Generally, a movie about two (or more) guys (or maybe gals) who are good friends and go through some adventures (or misadventures) together.

    Stand By Me is actually a buddy movie, but the characters are quite young.

    The Hangover is a buddy movie.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hello, Kamila.

    (1) "Buddy" is a word that one American male uses to describe a close

    male friend.

    (2) Thus, a "buddy movie" would be about the adventures of two

    non-gay buddies.

    (3) I think that there is a new term also being used: bromance.

    (a) a word made from "brother" ( meaning "close friend") +

    "romance." It refers to a close, non-gay friendship between two

    men.

    ***** Thank you *****
