Friendship in Buddy Cop Movies

I’ve been thinking a lot about the Buddy Cop film genre, as you may have noticed on this blog. While attempting to script my own version of one, I realized that I needed to understand the typical structure of a Buddy Cop friendship, in order to make sure my film hit the right beats. This chart was the result.

It's a roller coaster.

Fun fact: romantic comedies follow the exact same chart.
