The Buddyback pose: Movie posters of cops posing back-to-back

Heidi MacDonald of Comics Beats says: "I was tooling around on the internet the other night, and unexpectedly came across this masterpiece:

a monument to the 80s culture of buddy cop TV shows featuring perhaps the most perfect execution of the 'buddy cops standing back to back in front of a car with their arms crossed' pose, a pose parodied as much as it is worshipped worldwide. Sometimes the arms are not crossed, sometimes they are holding guns, sometimes they are standing in front of other things. But it's the 'I got your back, buddy!' pose that says these partners are going to solve crimes together no matter what the dangers."
