* TheFastAndTheFurious team is this and is also one big happy surrogate family. It shows the most from ''Fast Five'' onward, but the bond is there even in the earlier films. Dominic Toretto is the biggest example of this, with his mantra of "You don't turn your back on family, even when they do."

* TheLordOfTheRings
** [[BandOfBrothers The Fellowship of the Ring]] from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' definitely qualifies. Many of the members [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits don't even know each other at first]], but they become FireForgedFriends and [[IOweYouMyLife risk their lives]] for each other repeatedly. When they're forced to [[LetsSplitUpGang separate]], they still remain close and have a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming at the end of the movie when they [[BackFromTheDead all meet up again]].

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', Eggsy and Roxy, the only two candidates who demonstrate loyalty and compassion, quickly bond and look out for one another. Unusually for a film of this type, their relationship is completely devoid of sexual tension.

* Sure, they're rude, crude, and somewhat morally grey, but the Deltas from ''AnimalHouse'' are definitely this. "They can't do that to our pledges! Only ''we'' can do that to our pledges!"
* ''{{Film/Thor}}'': Thor, Sif, and the Warriors Three are a pretty tight-knit group after adventuring and fighting together for thousands of years. Later on in the movie, Sif, Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg risk everything to retrieve Thor from exile and are ecstatic when they're eventually reunited with him.

* In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', at first the superheroes have significant differences, but Nick Fury (leader of SHIELD) deliberately tried to invoke this to bring them together in a time of need. It was a huge risk for him and his career. By the end [[spoiler:he succeeds]].
** Similarly ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' revolved around a motley crew of criminals who eventually put aside their differences and end up saving the galaxy through ThePowerOfFriendship [[spoiler: literally]].

* In ''The Maltese Falcon''. If you're a detective, it doesn't matter that you hated your partner and were sleeping with his wife -- he's your partner, and if he's killed you have to do something about it.

* Danny Ocean's band in ''Ocean's Eleven'', [[{{Oceans 11}} original]], [[OceansEleven remake]] and sequels. Especially notable in ''Ocean's 13'' where in the beginning much of the team wants to drug, kill, and bury the villainous casino owner who betrayed their friend and caused him to go into shock.

* ''{{Rebel Without a Cause}}'', with Jim, Judy, and Plato.
* ''{{RENT}}'' has this when the seven friends band together in the wake of Benny's FaceHeelTurn, as well as the fact that half of them are HIV-positive. Even Joanne, an Ivy League lawyer who was only there because she was dating Maureen, gradually joined the gang and stuck around after the couple's breakup [[spoiler: before Angel's death brought them back together.]]

* In ''SisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants Carmen narrates saying, "Together, it was as if we formed one single, complete person."
* The cast of ''{{Sneakers}}'' appears, at the outset, to be employees at a small security firm, but when it comes time to circle the wagons, they work together like only true companions could.

* TheSpecials is all about this. It's a super-hero film set ''in between'' big disasters. During downtime for the Specials, when the big dramatic conflict is that a new member is joining, an old member is leaving to join a different team against their wishes, and a lot of the team-mates personal relationships are being reinterpreted.
