Hey singles, admit it. It can be pretty tough out there, especially if you’re flying solo. What you need is a partner that will help get you out, talk you up, and guard your back while you close in on your target. You need a wingman. One that is loyal and supportive, but most importantly, fun.
This wingman doesn’t even have to be a man. They can be a girl, a dog, or a team of speaking cockroaches. Whatever helps get you some action. Here are our nominees for the ultimate movie wingmen.
Randall ‘Pink’ Floyd proved himself to be one of the ultimate wingmen when took on the cause of Mitch Kramer in Richard Linklater‘s Dazed and Confused. Not only did he save him from and endear him to bullies, he also got him drunk and high. As if that weren’t enough, he taught him the tools he needed to woo the girl of his dreams.
Jay, Dave, and Cal banded together to do the impossible — get Steve Carell‘s Andy some ass. Upon finding out that the 40-year-old has never punched V-card, the trio behave as if his dick is their dick and do all that they can to get him in the game. They take him speed dating, crash bachelorette parties, and teach him the pick-up techniques he needs to nab Elizabeth Banks‘s hot bookstore employee, Beth. Of course, their plans come up short but you can’t blame the guys for trying.
Olive is the best. She’s totally hot which means that when other women see you with her, you’ll pique their interest. Secondly, she’ll pretend to have sex with you and pass along the word that you made her squirt. This is ideal because the rumor mill will do the work for you while you sit back and play The Waiting Game. Or Fireball Island.
