The Best Amy Characters in Film

448 votes 72 voters 3.7k views

List RulesFictional characters who actually appear in any kind of movie and are named Amy. No Aimees, please.

Is your name Amy? Sweet, mine too. It's always fun when you are a kid (or even a mature adult) and you see a character who shares your name. "Boy, I really relate to little Amy Warnicker," you might think. "We both have cool older cousins who just want to dance." What other Amy characters appear in ~the movies~? Lots! Amys in film can be found in comedies, dramas, and even dramedies. Also, one is an actual ape!

Want to know a secret? I once cried real tears when a contestant named Amy on Supermarket Sweep didn't win. I was six. It was very traumatic. But the good news is, all these cool Amys in movies exist and are awesome and have really helped me work through that tough time in my life. Fictional Amys are great characters, except for maybe Amy Dunne, of Gone Girl, who was a liiiitle crazy. There are also lots of kid characters named Amy, like Amy March and the Amy in Fly Away Home.

Of course, there's also Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect and lots of Amys played by actresses named Amy. So meta! For example, Amy Adams played an Amy in both Her and The Wedding Date, and Amy Schumer plays an Amy character in Trainwreck. Pretty neat!

So, whether or not your name is Amy, why don't you scroll down just a little bit and upvote your favorite Amy characters from any movie. If you are thinking "well, where is Amy from Chasing Amy?" then you should look at IMDB and see if you can find an actress credited with that role (you can't). These are just Amys (not Aimees or even Aymies or however the kids are spelling it these days) who appear on film and say some lines. Good luck voting!
