Female buddy film

A female buddy film is similar to a buddy film except that the main characters feature females, and it is centered on their situation. The cast may be mainly female depending on the plot. "The female buddy film is a recent trend in mainstream cinema. However, Thelma and Louise had a similar popular impact as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in the early ‘90s, paving the way for onscreen female friendships like the one between Evelyn Couch and Ninny Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes, Waiting to Exhale and Walking and Talking."[1]
