The Hangover is one of the best movies for men. It involves four men who head to Las Vegas to celebrate their bachelorette. Things take a turn when the men wake up the following day with a huge hangover and realize that their best friend is missing.

Directed by Todd Phillips, the first Hangover is simply the best when compared to its subsequent sequels. The hilarious dialogues and the funny scenes will make you laugh your butt off.


14. Iron Man (2008)

Iron Man is a Marvel classic that never fails to attract men. You do not need to be a Marvel fan to love the film. It is about Tony Stark who gets captured and builds a high-tech suit to escape and return home.

13. Pacific Rim (2013)

Nothing is more masculine than explosions. Pacific Rim is just a movie to watch as it includes lots of explosions. Watch human-controlled robots fight off giant alien monsters rising from the ocean and wreaking havoc.

With Idris Elba playing the lead, the movie pulls through despite its dull dialogue. If you like fights involving monsters from another world, it has got you covered.


12. The Expendables 2 (2012)

For a Friday night with the boys, The Expendables 2 is the right option. The sequel is superior to the first film as it stars some of the best actors including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Chuck Norris, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Watch a group of mercenaries fight an old adversary. The plot twist will leave you on edge.


11. Wedding Crashers (2005)


Sometimes, you just need lots of comedy to enjoy your time as a man. This is where Wedding Crashers truly shines. Besides, a bit of bromance is just what you need to bond with a buddy.

10. Swingers (1996)

Similar to Wedding Crashers, Swingers is another guy flick that is worth watching. It also stars Vince Vaughn alongside Ron Livingston who both play unemployed singles living in Los Angeles and dealing with all sorts of issues that men face.

The movie is as cool as things get. Watch Vince Vaughn fast-talk and Heather Graham seduce him. There is just the right amount of drama.


9. Old School (2003)

Will Ferrell played his best role in Old School. His most popular scene includes him naked and shouting “We are going streaking”.

8. Casino Royale (2006)

Casino Royale 2006

Let’s be honest. No list of manly movies would be complete without mentioning James Bond. Casino Royale is arguably one of the best Bond movies. The film is still recent and features Daniel Craig in his element as he chases an international banker who serves terrorists.

There is also the beautiful, Eva Green as his love interest. With quality acting and exotic locations, your buddies will enjoy watching the movie with you.


7. Goodfellas (1990)

6. Saving Private Ryan (1998)

The truth is that they do not make manly movies like they used to. A classic guy’s movie that you should add to your watchlist is Saving Private Ryan.

The war masterpiece is a realistic film that tells the horrors of war. It is set during the Second World War and involves the Invasion of Normandy. Crafted by Steven Spielberg, the movie will leave you stunned.


5. The Terminator (1984)

The Terminator 1984

Another movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the lead that every man enjoys watching is The Terminator. The first installment was ahead of its time and perfectly captured guy culture.

The Terminator is the antagonist. Many relentless and superb action sequences helped launch James Cameron.


4. The Rocky (1976)

Rocky 1976

Rocky is simply the best guy movie of all time. It is both inspirational and enjoyable at the same time. Watch an Italian-American boxer belonging to the working class give it his all for the heavyweight championship and his journey as he trains to become unbeatable.


3. Fight Club (1999)

Fight Club 1999

Fight Club is also an excellent manly movie that stars Brad Pitt and Ed Norton. Nothing says guy time quite like men beating each other up like maniacs.

Get an idea of the male psyche and see how the characters fight consumerism. 


2. Die Hard (1988)

Die Hard 1988

Even though the entire Die Hard series is incredible, there is nothing like the first installment. Watching the movie is considered a rite of passage and stars Bruce Willis in his true element.

1. The Godfather (1972)

The Godfather 1972

The Godfather is and shall always remain the number one guy film. It connects with the male audience better than any other film.
