The good, The bad, and The Ugly

“The definition of a friendship is a relationship between people who like each other and enjoy each other's company”. (, n.d.). A friendship occurs in every circle from poor people to rich people. Friendship is known since a person is a child, it start from our neighborhood and kindergarten friends until we are old, where only certain people be our friends. Usually we know the meaning of a friendship when we mature because in this condition we will know who is the real friends and which is the fake friends because not all people want to support us when we are in a struggle. The last stage that we can know about our real friends is in the university stage, after the university stage usually we only make friends for business or just for fun.

The movie The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (1966) directed by Sergio Leone. The film shows about three people, Blondie as The Good, Angel Eyes as The Bad, and Tuco as The Ugly that finds a treasure that is buried in the graveyard named Sad Hills. For the first time, The Good and The Ugly works together to get some money but The Good betrays The Ugly by leaving The Ugly alone in the desert, and The Ugly need to survive by himself to get out from the desert, then The Ugly hunted The Good for revenge. After The Ugly finds The Good, he tortures The Good by dragging him across the desert, when they both passed the desert and The Good is dying, The Ugly met Bill Carson on a horse-drawn carriage and receive an information about a buried treasure, but the final information is only heard by The Good. So The Ugly must take care of The Good to get the final information and they work together again to find the buried treasure. The Bad, working by himself to find the information of the buried treasure and uses The Good and The Ugly to find the buried treasure. In this film there are three people with different traits such as The Good with his good and greedy attitude, The Ugly with the greedy, arrogant and religious attitude, and The Bad with the sly, greedy and sadistic attitude. I believe that these two people only make friends for partner business because they are greedy, dramatically, and arrogant.

First, they are not real friends because they are greedy. Greed is a human characteristic that never satisfy with what they have and get so they want more more and more. In this film you can see that these two people are very greedy because they only think about money even most of the film The Good and The Ugly work together but they only care about the money. For example, when The Good and The Ugly is walking together on the desert after escaping on the second fraud attempt and received the money, The Good betrayed The Ugly because The Good want all of the money a sees that their “friendship” is no more profitable.  

In addition, they are not real friends because they are not sincere with each other. For example, when The Good is recovering in the chapel and The Ugly is taking care of him, in this scene you can see that The Ugly takes care for The Good not because The Ugly cares about The Good but The Ugly only wants to know what Bill Carson told The Good about the money so The Ugly takes care of The Good until The Good recovers.

The last, each of them are arrogant. Arrogant is “unpleasantly proud and behaving as if you are more important than, or know more than, other people” (, n.d.). For example, in this film you can see each of them only care about the money even The Good and The Ugly work together to find the money but in the end still both of them are lies to each other about the information of the place and The Ugly left The Good behind after they pass the river.
