Female Friendships in Film

Continuing on from my list of Female Coming of Age Films, I want to compile a list of interesting female friendships. As a lady, I do appreciate women interacting realistically and often find myself rating even the most unremarkable film just a tad higher if there's a good depiction of female friendship (bonus if they pass the Bechdel test, but it's not even a prerequisite for this list).

The good, the bad, the ugly, let's have it.
