The Best of Friends is a 1982 Australian romantic comedy about two best friends who have an affair one night, resulting in the woman becoming pregnant.


The script won $10,000 in a competition by the New South Wales Film Corporation for best original quality.[1] Angela Punch McGregor later claimed that:

It was an excellent script. It was then mutilated by all of us. [Writer] Donald McDonald was very upset about it. The film was badly handled and I was miscast but I took it because I wanted the challenge of doing a comedy, which I hadn't done before. I thought my role was well written and wasn't cardboard... The director wasn't up to it, the film was miscast, the budget wasn't good.[2]
