Can I connect two Macbook Pro's directly to each other using an Ethernet cable?

I have a lot of files I want to copy from one Macbook Pro to a second one. They are far too big (20 Gb+ total, and always adding more) to use Bluetooth, and it will be a long time, if ever, before I have a chance to get them both on the same network at the same time. The biggest external hard drive I have is a 2Gb USB drive, which is what I've been using, but there has GOT to be a better way than that. I've been wanting to try to use an Ethernet cable to connect the computers by simply plugging each end of the cable into the computers' Ethernet ports. Will this work, and if so how? Or do I have to have a LAN set up to be able to do it this way? And is there more than one type of Ethernet cable? If so, do I need a specific one?
Thank you for the link Tyler.

You need what is called a cross-over cable. It looks just like an ethernet cable, but the wiring inside is slightly changed.

Here is one:
