The best films to watch whilst drinking a beer, or perhaps even while enjoying a 24 to yourself, goes as follows:
1) The Big Lebowski. Jeff Bridges is so cool and calm and suave in this film it will give you the most lovely buzzing feeling atop your already buzzing liver. It is also uplifting and generally FUN and gives light to losers and screwups not being productive with their time ( YOU .)
2) The Original Young Frankenstein - Why not be fantastical and feel inspired by strangeness?
3) Airplane! Peter Graves died last week at 83 and this is, and was the funniest, most clever, hilarious slapstick film ever made. I am currently giggling just thinking of how unbelievable bizarre and witty it is.
4) Get Rich or Die Trying. Because, the intensity can be farcical when you are drunk and it just is so fitting for the sweat on the actors' faces to be matching that on yours. Also, having a few beats dropped is very fun to stand up and shake it to while watching. Maybe grind up against the person beside you with a little extra groove.
6) Throw Momma From the Train -Danny Devito and Billy Crystal are hysterical in this film. They are accomplices in trying to kill DeVito's wretchedly shrill and generally disgusting momma (hence the name). It is very funny. Trust me.
8) 2001 A Space Odyssey- Literally every single shot of this film is so incredibly innovative and mindblowing that if you stare into the space that is the film, OR are staring into space, you will still be SO wowed and so entertained. It is nearly three hours long and thus if you leave to pee, smoke, or are making out and come back to it you will have lots of film watching time left without needing to worry about rewinding.
9) Carrie- This teenage horror film is inordinately clever and is also capable of making people soil themselves in fear. Being under the influeces obviously weakens one's ability to pay attention or entirely feel anything so a good horror film can be very effective in keeping the attention of the inebriated.
10- The Three Amigos - The following is the plotline - Three unemployed actors accept an invitation to a Mexican village to replay their bandit fighter roles, unaware that it is the real thing. The Following are the three actors playing the actors (how metatheatrical) Chevy Chace, Steve Martin, and Martin Short. (In their prime....the film was released in 86') So mucho fun.
