When a professional couple who have lived & worked together for many years finally decide to marry, their sudden betrothal causes many unexpectedly funny and awkward difficulties. They soon find that being married is often quite different from being "best friends." Written by

During 1982, two comedy movies with similar titles were released examining the notion of whether male and female friends can become partners. One was Best Friends (1982), a big Hollywood studio movie with lots of star power in Burt Reynolds and Goldie Hawn. The other was The Best of Friends (1982), a smaller Australian film but featuring two big names from their film industry, Graeme Blundell and Angela Punch McGregor. The Best of Friends (1982) came out first on 25 February 1982 whilst Best Friends (1982) was premiered on 17 December 1982. The Australian film's tagline summed up both movies' themes: "They were the best of friends . . . until they fell in love!" See more »

Burt Reynolds brings out the best of our loves in this touching, beautiful film!
Light, sweet and very beautiful! " Best Friends ", directed by the great, competent and veteran film director Norman Jewinson, is a romantic comedy that brings a lot of happiness and peace to the heart, a true masterpiece of a director in the peak of his creativity and talent, with two excellent stars. Burt Reynolds, just after having directed and starry the violent " Sharky's Machine ", decided to play in a lighter film and without exaggerated scenes,his performance surprises, Reynolds demonstrates, as he did in " Deliverance " and in " Boogie Nights ", that he is one of the most competent stars of Hollywood. The film has beautiful music, scenes of good taste that fill the eyes, dedicated and experts secondary actors (as Jessica Tandy and Ron Silver), a plot that teaches us many values that were forgotten so much time, such as the friendship and the love, and the search for happiness. When narrating the two best friends' story who decide to get married and the difficulty of the adaptation and of the commitment, Jewinson touched in very known themes by all of us, that with certainty identified with the protagonists...
" Best Friends " is a very pretty comedy, above all! with an end loaded of hope and optimism , the work is a beautiful hymn to the life. It is the type of film that is not more done by Hollywood, " Best Friends " brings an encouragement breeze to all of us. Reynolds passes us, by every each glance, by every each smile, the happiness, the love and the will to live and take advantage of the life, even when everything seems to be against us...
I don't still understand why the film didn't obtain an Oscar nomination for Burt Reynolds. As well as I don't understand the reason for what he did not won the Oscar for " Boogie Nights ". the history of Burt Reynolds's life confuses itself with the own history of Hollywood, he is part of the mythology, of this powerful industry's glam . It was the first (and the last) star to be the box office hit for five years in a roll! and this film, " Best Friends ", is a sample of all his charisma, of all his cynic and sweet charm... Watch that film, mainly if you feel sad, discouraged or defeated. Something will move inside of you! the film will teach that the world rotates, and that there is always a great turning waiting for us, there is always a second chance, there will always be a place for the happiness and for the peace! and nobody better than the great legend of Hollywood, Burt Reynolds, to demonstrate the certainty of this opinion, because he already tasted the redeeming success, the ostracism and he gave the performance of the century in the saga " Boogie Nights ", making the peaces with himself and with the success... Burt Reynolds makes all the difference! congratulations, Burt: you got the BEST OF MY LOVE (the name of the most exciting song from the film " Boogie Nights ")! and " Best Friends ", as any film of your career, is special like you!
