We, for once, can't help but focus on all the shitty friends orbiting around our favourite characters. Because our faves don't deserve to be sourrounded by terrible people. Our beautiful cinnamon rolls, too good for this world, too pure...
20 Film & TV Characters Who Were Absolutely S**t FriendsIs defecting on someone’s rug something a friend would do?
1 of 20FoxBender, Futurama - Where do we even start? Bender is the definition of a bad friend.
2 of 20Warner Bros./Comedy CentralRoss, Friends - Sexist, dismissive, and constantly looking others from above because he’s a “professor”. Ross needs to get off his high horse, pronto.
3 of 20NetflixLorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls - Everything always had to be about Lorelei. She never truly cared to Sookie. And everyone knows Sookie was the best part of the show.
4 of 20ABCChloe, Don't Trust the B—— In Apt 23 - Why Jane agreed to stay as Chloe’s flatmate is beyond us. After the scam in the first episode we’d immediately be like “Girl, bye.”
5 of 20NetflixNancy Wheeler, Stranger Things - Rule number one of every female friendship? Venus before penis. Mates before dates. Dolls before balls. Seriously, #justiceforbarb.
6 of 20Columbia PicturesSeth, Superbad - Seth didn’t care about any of his friends. All he cared about was getting his willy wet.
7 of 20HBOCarrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City - She made her friends listen to her indulgent whining season after season. After season.
8 of 20Gramercy PicturesWalter Sobchak, The Big Lebowski - Call us crazy, but a friend doesn’t pull out a gun on his BFF…
9 of 20Paramount PicturesFerris Bueller, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off - The whole film is about Ferris terrorising and leading his friends astray.
10 of 20BBCSherlock, Sherlock - This one’s pretty self-evident. We don’t say he doesn’t care about Watson. He does. But he has a very funny way of showing that.
11 of 20Paramount PicturesThe Plastics, Mean Girls - If anyone tries to dictate what you should wear and how you should interact with other people, be sure they are not your friends. On Wednesdays, you can wear whatever you want.
12 of 20NBCTodd Packer, The Office - Is defecting on someone’s rug something a friend would do? Doubt it. Yet, it happened to Todd Packer.
13 of 20HBOJessa, Girls - Sure, the characters on this show are all perpetually shit to each other. But Jessa takes the top spot. She set up Hannah’s boyfriend with someone else as soon as she left town, goddammit!
14 of 20Indian PaintbrushM. Gustave, The Grand Budapest Hotel - Again, another case of self-centrism. Although, by the end he did manage to save himself a bit by giving all his wealth to Zero.
15 of 20The CWSerena Van Der Woodsen, Gossip Girl - Yes, it was Blair who was the Queen Bee, but Serena is the one who got with her best friend’s boyfriend.
16 of 20Warner Bros.Harry Potter, Harry Potter - Let’s be honest, Harry isn’t almost at all appreciative of the amazing friends he has!
17 of 20Paramount PicturesDewey Finn, School of Rock - He's a selfish freeloader who mooches off of his best friend and roommate, openly hates his roommate's girlfriend, and, oh yeah, assumes his friend's identity in order to make money…
18 of 20Paramount PicturesMarlon, The Truman Show - A friendship based on lies. LIES, WE TELL YOU.
19 of 20UniversalLiterally everyone in The Trainspotting - Every. Single. Character.
20 of 2020th Century FoxTyler Durden, Fight Club - Obviously.
