Poll: Best Movie Wingman

A wingman doesn't just help you get lucky with the ladies, he also has your back no matter what. A wingman reminds you that you are awesome when you are feeling down, and makes sure you never sell yourself short. Here is a list of great wingmen from movies, rate the characters themselves, not the actors. I included the actor name just for reference purposes, but this list is geared toward the character himself.
