List Rules The films most conducive to drinking games - vote up the ones that get you drunkest the fastest

The drinking game. Combining two things we love dearly: movies, and well... drinking. The art of the drinking game is far more complex than it may seem. Beyond the most obvious which movies are the best to drink to, there are a variety of reasons one movie is preferable over the other for a drinking game.

The tone of the film and the way it makes you feel whilst drinking are important factors. As are the length of the film, drink pacing, the genre of the film, and what type of drunk do you intend to be? There's also nostalgia and irony to keep in mind.

Beyond that is the next major factor. Rules. What are the rules you'll have, how strict will you be, and how drunk do you and the other players want to get? Rules have to be fair, consistent, timely, and tiered (how drunk one may want to be vs. others, also what challenge your setting yourself up for). Most of all, the rules should be simple. They need to be either obvious, visual, or best yet, both. No one wants to have to think too hard an hour in, that should go without saying. It's not like half the fun is having to look back at your long sheet of heady movie drinking games list items and going all "oh hey good I should drink now." Drunk idiots just want to have fun. 

Below are the best movies for drinking games. Pop in one of these films, sit back, and be sure to have plenty of booze handy. Cheers!

*Note: some of these rules are advanced - The Wolf of Wall Street can kill a man, like any good drinking game movies should do, really. So, you know, drink responsibly.
