There are many Hollywood flatmates that go so impeccably well together. Their dynamic partnerships make them epic and their enduring bond brings us joy, making us want to be them and, in turn, inspiring us to enhance our own relationships. Here are the top 7 film flatmates that you would love to be:
Buzz Lightyear and Woody (Toy Story)
These two have not only saved the lives of many beloved toys multiple times, but have saved each other’s lives as well. They have travelled together and their friendship has withstood trials and tribulations. Buzz and Woody’s relationship was quite rocky at first, but when they agreed to work towards a common goal and use their abilities for good, they found a friend in each other and learned powerful life lessons!
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson (Sherlock Holmes)
No matter which screen version you choose, you couldn’t separate this pair of mystery-solving mates even if you tried. These two play off each other’s strengths and weaknesses every time. Sherlock comes up with cleverly-conjured ideas and Watson continuously fine tunes them… or shuts them down entirely! We all need someone to help neutralise or balance out our thoughts and opinions, shedding light on what we don’t know. This type of friendship is something to strive for.
Chewbacca and Han Solo (Star Wars)
These two go way back to when Han Solo was an Imperial Officer and was given the command to end poor Chewbacca’s life! Kind-hearted Solo disobeyed the demand, and these two became the space-traveling duo that we know and love. “Chewie”, as he is endearingly called, rides shotgun-ready to protect and serve as Solo flies the spaceship. A loyal friend is a flatmate that you’d want on any adventure.
Ed and Shaun (Shaun of the Dead)
When you’ve let the love of your life slip through your fingers, only to find out that the day you decide to get them back is the day the dead have chosen to eat the living, you want to be sure you have the right mate by your side to get you through such trying times! Ed and Shaun’s innate desire for justice and protecting the living makes them an unbeatable team.
