Some people may see Star Trek for the action. Some go for the bromance. In Star Trek II, when Spock used his dying breath to tell Kirk, “I have been and always shall be your friend,” it cemented them as the greatest bromance ever. But not all guy love is so pure. Peter Hartlaub of the San Francisco Chronicle rates other totally manly love affairs:

  • False: Han and Chewy: Please. Han ditches his bachelor’s paradise the second he gets a whiff of Leia.

  • True: Hawkeye and Trapper: War is great when you have a buddy like Trapper John, “who doesn’t mind if you walk around with your robe open and who shares your love of latrine-themed practical jokes."
  • False: Maverick and Goose: Remember how Mav bailed on that volleyball game for Kelly McGillis?
  • True: Andy Dufresne and Red Redding:The Shawshank Redemption is the Romeo and Juliet of bromances, except with a happier ending and less iambic pentameter.”
