List of the best buddy cop movies. On this page, you will find the rankings of the greatest buddy movies about cops that have ever graced the silver screen. What are two of the best genres for a film? Boom! Cop movies and buddy movies. That is why some of the funniest or most dramatic movies in the history of cinema are buddy cop films. 
On the comedy side, people have 21 Jump Street as well as 22 Jump Street, with the unlikely pair of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as police officers. Just like that film, many of these movies ranked here feature undercover detectives because they can make for hilarious or brutally intense storylines. Just ask the Wayans Brothers, also known as the White Chicks. But are you looking to watch an intense movie about friendship and crime-fighting? Then stay away from Rush Hour and turn on Die Hard or Training Day for some great buddy cop drama.
