What Are the Most Cliche Movie Characters?
The Best Friend Slide 1 of 11
Every leading lady needs a best friend, right? Of course she does! She needs someone to talk to about her uber-dramatic life-changing problems. (In other words, the fact that she likes someone.) She also needs a pal who will make her look awesome by comparison!
If the best friend is a girl:
- She's not as pretty as the leading lady. Can't let anyone steal her thunder!
- She's either ditsy and boy crazy or aloof and sarcastic. Comic relief, you know.
If the best friend is a boy:
- He's either flamboyantly gay or stuck in the "friend zone."
- He's cute-ish, but not drop-dead sexy like the leading man.
