The greatest buddy comedies of all-time
Will 'The Heat's' Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy join the list?
18. 'Shaun of the Dead' (2004)
Regular HitFix readers will notice that we feature Edgar Wright's thoughtful, lovable zombie send-up in our "best of" galleries every chance we get. It's just that good. Much of the film's success is owed to the comedic duo at its center, played by friends and frequent co-stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Amid the apocalyptic zombie maelstrom, the two bicker, bond and share gut-busting laughs in a realistic and endlessly entertaining fashion, even when one of them has moved on to the afterlife. When Queen's "You're My Best Friend" kicks in, it works on two levels, and that sort of camaraderie just can't be faked.
