I know I have recommended it before (it was a long, long time ago) but for the benefit of the newer people, I'll go for an encore.

For the the love of your favourite tipple see "Withnail And I." Possibly the mightiest paen to the death of the 60s and certainly the drinkers drinking movie.

The stories surrounding the production of this film are both legion and legendary.

A cursory Google search will provide with a list of more Withnail obsessive than you will feel comfortable sharing a planet with.

It is infinitely quotable and has sparked up more than one drinking game.

All of which beggars the question; why, then, is it so little known.
See it for yourself and revel in the glory of such lines as, "It's almost closing time. We shall have to be swift. Barman, two pints of cider two triple gins. Ice in the cider." "There must, and shall be, more wine!" "We want cake and the finest wines known to humanity..."
"If I had all the money that I've spent on drink, I'd spend it on drink!"
"The trouble with internet quotes is that one can never be sure if they are genuine." - Abraham Lincoln
Kindly listen to this, please.

I like Valley of the Dolls. Watching Patty Duke's character transform from an innocent young wannabe actress/singer to a down and out alcoholic is worth the trip to the video store. Classic 1960's film. So bad, its good. Best quote:
Anne: Neely, you know it's bad to take liquor with those pills.
Neely: They work faster.


Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Liz Taylor and Richard Burton didn't have to stretch their acting abilities for this gem. The story is about an an middle-aged, alchoholic, and strange (to say the least) couple, Martha (Elizabeth Taylor) and George (Richard Burton) who invite a young couple (Nick and Honey) over for a late night visit over drinks only to have the whole night become a nightmare, all orchestrated by Martha and George.
Best quotes:
Martha: Look, sweetheart, I can drink you under any goddamn table you want, so don't worry about me.

Nick: I'm tired, I've been drinking since nine o'clock, my wife is vomiting, there's been a lot of screaming going on around here!

George: Yes, Martha? Can I get you something?
Martha: Ah, well, sure. You can, um, light my cigarette, if you're of a mind to.
George: No. There are limits. I mean, a man can put up with only so much without he descends a rung or two on the old evolutionary ladder, which is up your line. Now, I will hold your hand when it's dark and you're afraid of the boogeyman and I will tote your gin bottles out after midnight so no one can see but I will not light your cigarette. And that, as they say, is that.
Martha: Jesus.
Voices tell me to buy the bigger bottle!

I love watching the Office when I'm drinking. It's a british television series and it is amazingly funny. It is also quite brilliant at times and it still really good after seeing many many times. The complexity of the humor is just astounding. Anyways I don't know where to get it my english friend downloaded it off of a link at somehthingawful.com but I think that's gone now.
One can get it on dvd I believe and If I didn't have it already Iwould buy it, ( I may anyways)

I just went through this thread quickly and I didn;t see anything about Blue Velvet. Frank Booth- aka Denis Hooper, is the best. Damn good movie.
No!, I want you to fuck it. Shit yes! Pour the fucking beer.

Great drinking movie: Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Something for everybody. Except the stupid and humorless. I won't quote, because I wouldn't be able to stop

Ni! Ni!

When isn't Dennis Hooper great? Ok, other than "Water World". Ever seen "Red Rock West"?

Haha! Robin Williams was brilliant in that. It took me forever to realize that Dink the Clown was actually Adam Sandler!
