9 Ultimate Movie Wingmen

Wednesday, October 19 by

Chewbacca – Star Wars

Chewbacca is always there for Han Solo without asking for anything in return. He’s willing to jump into a dog-fight, a laser battle, and whatever dangerous situations present themselves with no questions asked. And then he doesn’t so much as growl when Luke and Han are presented with medals and he is completely snubbed. The only real trade-off you have to make is letting him win at board games. Small price to pay.

Trent – Swingers

Trent proved his worth when helped an especially-whiny Jon Favreau get with Heather Graham. Though, in hindsight, that probably wasn’t such a hard thing to do, but back then Heather Graham still had a sense of mystery to her. She kinda put all mystery to rest when she played Rollergirl in Boogie Nights. But back to Trent, he saw a friend at his lowest and committed himself to picking him back up. And he did it with style. In fact, I think the members of Big, Bad, Voodoo Daddy owe him a solid too.

Goose – Top Gun

Goose tops the list, but not just because he was literally a wingman. He’s always there for Tom Cruise‘s Maverick. He’ll sing back up in public or kill a bogey just as they lock on target. He’s even willing to die for you so that you can show the ladies your sensitive side. Talk about support!
