List Rules Get yourself into the party mood by voting up all of your favorite movies that feature parties!

This is a list of the best party movies. These are the absolute best party films, but if you believe we missed one, please feel free to add it to the list yourself. Everyone loves a party (well, mostly everyone), but if you can't actually be at party, then perhaps watching some of the wild, out of control parties in these films could serve as a close second.

This list includes all genres, although most of these movies are either comedies, or romantic-comedies. House parties, bachelor parties, this list has them all. If you like to party, but you're stuck at home, then these are the party movies for you!
