Rule #5

Friends make an effort to stay in touch Thoughts: “Why don’t you just call him?” Peter’s fiancée asks him, trying to patch the communication breakdown between him and Sydney. The answer: “Because guys don’t do that.” Tell that to Vince Vaughn who, as Beanie in “Old School,” takes time away from work and family to help Mitch (Luke Wilson) rebound from a bad breakup. “You think I like avoiding my wife and kids so I can hang out with 19-year-old girls all day?” Beanie asks after a particularly intense night of trying to readjust Mitch to the rigors of the single life. The point is: It’s a rhetorical question, folks. You don’t wait for buddies to call you. You pick up the phone. Or better: Just show up on their doorstep.Darren Michaels / DreamWorks
