Do you have any funny stories about wacky adventures that happened when you went out and got plastered? Not stories you’d want to share with everyone, right?
Movies don’t have these sorts of reservations. Some of the funniest scenes in the history of film come from characters drinking and getting into all sorts of shenanigans.
But which of these scenes deserve the title of the funniest of all time?
Well, look no further! We’re here to give you the definitive list of the funniest drinking movie scenes in cinema! So pour yourself a round of shots and let’s get started (hey, it’s 5:00 somewhere).
1. The World’s End – Bathroom Fight
In this hit Edgar Wright comedy, Gary King (Simon Pegg) gets in a drunken fight with one of the local punks at the bar.
Seems standard until the punk’s head pops off and his body gets back up to continue the fight. Cue Gary’s friends coming in on the scene and a whole battle between them and some more creepy punks ensues, resulting in slapstick gold.
To spoil any more of the plot would be a sin: go watch it.
2. Old School – Will Ferrell Goes Streaking
On the long list of embarrassing things in the world, from ripping your pants to David Hasselhoff’s attempts at a music career, streaking while plastered would rank pretty high on the list.
Like a true American hero, Will Ferrell takes the plunge so we won’t have to, the hilarity coming to a peak when he runs into his wife during the run.
3. The Heat – Cops Letting Loose
In this Paul Feig-directed comedy, Sandra Bullock’s uptight FBI agent goes out drinking with her partner, a brash detective played by Melissa McCarthy.
The two women let loose after some heavy drinking together, leading to a hilarious sequence where they party to their heart’s content as the rest of the bar gives them strange looks.
4. Shaun Of The Dead – Zombie? Nah
Let’s dip back into the Edgar Wright well for a second. In the first film of the infamous “Cornetto Trilogy,” Shaun and his best buddy Ed emerge from the Winchester Pub after a night of heavy drinking only to see a moaning, shambling figure in the distance.
Rather than realize that they’re dealing with the beginning of a zombie outbreak, they instead improvise a song to the rhythm of the zombie’s moans. If you enjoy that scene, a later scene of Shaun running through his daily life oblivious to the chaos around him is the icing on the cake.
5. SpongeBob Squarepants Movie – Too Much Ice Cream
Hey, who says the only thing people get drunk on is alcohol?
In this scene, ice cream plays the role of alcohol for the depressed SpongeBob and his friend Patrick, leading to a hilarious feeding frenzy culminating with the “bartender” waking a hungover SpongeBob up in the morning.
