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.

***** NOT A TEACHER *****

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 *****
