List Rules Action films intended for guy audiences - no traditional superhero movies

List of the best bro movies of 2013, as ranked by movie fans, critics, and bros from all over the world. Most movies are meant to cater to a niche market, but no genre is more specific than that of the “bro films.”Plenty of films are designed to reach a certain viewer who values raunchy jokes,badass fight scenes, hot chicks, and the bromance between two action stars. These films feature a unique type of humor that bros appreciate, a protagonist that they want to be, and a sexy costar to fantasize about. Bro films don’t feature romance or long chats about feelings, mostly because they would take away from bitching car chases and explosions.

From action stars like Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine to everyone’s favorite everyman jokester, Adam Sandler in Grown Ups 2, these films have the best stars doing what they do best.
