This is Maxim's list of the greatest "guy" movies of all time. What makes a movie a guy movie, by Maxim standards? The magazine pointed out that it's a difficult term to define specifically, but suggested "sophomoric humor, cartoon violence, mean-spirited putdowns and gratuitous nudity" and some of the standards of the genre.

But why let some random editors decide the best Dude Flicks ever. We're leaving it up to the men (and women!) of Ranker to make the final call. Your votes will determine the order of this list. (Here's the original Maxim Greatest Guy Movie rankings.)
