List Rules Upvote and add only the best movies for guys.

The best guy movies of all time, ranked by fans and critics. This list includes some of the greatest guy movies ever to hit the big screen - those whose quotable lines all guys seem to know, manly characters, masculine themes that guys love. The best man movies are as diverse as the men who love them. Comedies old and new - from Animal House to The Hangover - fall into the category of movies dudes love, as do newer bromance movies like Superbad and I Love You Man. This list includes war movies like Saving Private Ryan and cult favorite guy films like A Clockwork Orange and Trainspotting, which are just as popular as good sports films like Major League, The Natural, and The Blind Side.

Vote on the movies for guys you love most to move them up the list, or hit "rerank" to personalize your own list of guy flicks.
