These ladies and men may have had a  fictional friendship, but their on-screen chemistry and bond were totally entertaining and lovable.

In reality, the importance of having the best girl or male friend is not overrated, as everyone needs someone to share their secrets with, defend them and stick with them.

Pulse Movies has put up a list of nine great on-screen friendships ever.

In no particular order, here we go;

1. Genevieve Nnaji, Ramsey Nouah and Rita Dominic in "Fugitive"

In life, every friend needs a reliable friend by their side for both the highs and lows that they will inevitably face, and in "Fugitive," Nnaji, Nouah and Dominic offered each other that kind of friendship.

2. Banky W and Ikechukwu in "The Wedding Party"

It's not that kind of intense friendship, but it's worth making it on this list.

Despite Shola's mistakes, he had a relatable relationship with Dozie.

Everyone has that amazing but 'destructive' friend who always find a way to ruin things without having any ill intention.

So when a drunk Shola handed the wrong flash drive to the wedding planner in "The Wedding Party," it was believable.

3. Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Ekeinde and Stella Damasus in "Games Women Play"

They may not be perfect friends, but the relationship between Candace, Emma and Yvonne offered the most entertainment in the movie.

And even when things turned sour between Yvonne and Candace, it was still engaging to watch.

Friends that consider 'finding you a husband' their life goal and matchmake you with 'highly recommended' men can usually be annoying, but still amazing in a good way.

Zara, Tina and Ini are smart, strong and despite Tina and Ini's obsession with finding a man for Zara, they are independent.

Their friendship is one that most female, especially single audiences, can identify with the most, as they successfully portray a realistic friendship on-screen.

5. Jenifa and Toyosi in "Jenifa's Diary"

From dishing out the perfect advice, putting up with Jenifa after she arrived Lagos and her apartment unannounced, correcting her grammar among others, Toyosi and Jenifa were always there for each other.

There were no unnecessary bants, just a believable on-screen friendship that made it easy to love their characters.
