10. LEAVING LAS VEGAS
Very well made film and it has some serious drinking in it, but it’s way too dark to be any higher on my countdown.
It’s hard not to like a movie that deals with bowling and drinking.
8. STRANGE BREW
Word to the wise: putting a mouse in a beer bottle will not get you free beer.
Always brings back fond memories of when my friend Dan and I went 25 – 0 over two days playing Beer Pong.
The ending is kind of weird but whenever this movie is on it does make you want to drink and have fun. “I’ve got the hippy hippy shake!”
I use to be a beer and a shot kind of guy but this film got me to actually want to learn about and drink wine.
4. SKI SCHOOL
I don’t even like skiing but I’ll watch this movie ever time it’s on. One of the purest party movies ever made.
3. NATIONAL LAMPOON’S ANIMAL HOUSE
“My advice to you. Start drinking heavily.”
2. THE HANGOVER
Although you don’t see much drinking in this movie, it does show that sometimes the aftermath is even funnier.
1. WITHNAIL AND I
It’s “Dumb and Dumber” with two hardcore alcoholics. It’s “Well Hung Over” before I could even dream it. It’s with no equal the greatest drinking movie of all-time.
It also has the most impossible drinking game ever: the game consists of keeping up drink for drink with every drink Withnail has in the movie. So basically you would have under 2 hours to drink:
10 glasses of red wine
1 pint of cider
1 shot of lighter fluid
3 shots of gin
6 glasses of sherry
13 glasses of whiskey
1 pint of ale
BTW – if you attempt to do this you will DIE!!! You have been warned.
