If you’d like to know how to play some of the best movie drinking games, here are the rules:
You’re a big movie buff. You’re a big fan of booze. You can see why these two activities work so well together.
In order to spend more time watching the movie and less time referencing a list (which you will appreciate when the beer begins to flow), the restrictions are kept to a minimum.
It’s time to bring some old favorites back to life with a fresh perspective.
Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy a zombie movie? If you don’t want to answer this question, don’t bother. We’re probably not friends anyhow. Additionally, Zombieland is a fantastic comedy that never takes itself too seriously.
2. Hot Fuzz
For the sake of this essay, I’m not going to include a drinking game for Shaun of the Dead. For the fantastic action-comedy spoof by the same creators, Hot Fuzz, here are some rules.
3. Blazing Saddles
As a drinking game, this Mel Brooks comedy is a classic. My personal favorite film is also this one. For a fun night, this game provides a comfortable drinking pace with minimum restrictions.
4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
For those who can keep their mouths shut long enough to savor the absurdity of the film, this one is a must-see.
5. The Room
In spite of this, it’s one of the best movies on this list. Watching awful movies when intoxicated is a surefire way to make the experience even better.
6. In Bruges
If you’re going to be in the mood for a drink after watching this dark comedy, don’t wait until the conclusion. Because it’s bad, it’s one of the best movie drinking games out there.
7. Jurassic Park
Isn’t this classic about people being eaten by ancient animals a nice addition to the list of not simply comedies?
This movie holds up well to repeated viewings, thanks to visual effects that still look good today, making it ideal for rewatching as part of a drinking game.
8. The Big Lebowski
You don’t have to make your own White Russians to play this movie drinking game, but if you do, you’ll get a better sense of immersion. To keep up with the Dude’s drowsiness as the movie progresses, follow these guidelines.
Who needs an excuse to indulge in a few drinks while watching this film? For those that insist, I’ll provide a few just in case. Internet, keep it classy.
A night out on the town is complete with a trip into the male modeling industry’s underbelly. It’s packed with memorable characters and quotable lines.
11. O Brother, Where Art Thou?
It’s a classic for a reason: this loose adaptation of The Odyssey set in the old-timey American South. If you’re looking for a raucous good time, go no further than this film.
This film has to be one of the greatest of the 1980s, if not the best. Featuring Bill Murray and Rick Moranis in peak form, it’s well worth revisiting with a decent drinking game if you haven’t seen it yet.
13. Pirates of the Caribbean
Action-comedy The Lost World: Jurassic Park is one of the best movies ever created based on a theme park attraction. Because so many characters on TV are intoxicated at least half the time, it seems reasonable to have a drink while watching.
14. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
Just because the movie is about pot doesn’t mean you can’t watch it when you’re under the influence of something else.
Warning: You may wind up desiring those wonderful sliders at the end of the movie. I’m hoping White Castle compensated them for their excellent publicity.
