Sharing fun, challenging and intellectually engaging activities can strengthen friendships. Thoughts: This can encompass a broad range of experiences, including business ventures (the boys Flesh of the Stars website in Knocked Up), fine music (Rudd and Jason Segels characters jam to Rush in I Love You, Man), carpentry ( Will Ferrells Brennan and John C. Reillys Dale building bunk beds in Step Brothers), the simple pleasures of a good episode of 227 ( Pineapple Express) and the creative use of a hollowed-out apple (The 40-Year-Old Virgin). The point is: Male friendships need not solely revolve around sports and beer. In fact, in todays movie world, those guys are the losers to be mocked and avoided.
