American Pie There’s nothing quite like your first time. It’s just so awkward! But no matter how bad, weird, or short it was, you always want to do it again. And is there anything more hilarious than a group of high school boys with raging hormones making a pact to lose their V-cards by prom night? American Pie was one of the first movies to take the high school comedy to a new level of raunch, gross- out humor, and embarrassing sexcapades. Take Jimbo (Jason Biggs), who gets caught masturbating by his parents, busts a nut too quickly (twice! And while it’s being broadcast across the web!), and ends up getting used for sex on prom night—which actually is kind of cool.
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Sixty percent of the time, you’ll love this game every time. Ron Burgundy and his mishmash team of misogynists run Channel 4 News like a middle-aged frat. . .that is, until the sultry Veronica Corningstone comes in and knocks them off their boys-club-only pedestals. Keep an eye out for A-list cameos from Seth Rogen as the eager KVWN cameraman and Ben Stiller as leader of Spanish Language News. And, of course, raise your glass to vindictive biker Jack Black (Baxterrrr!) and lead anchor Luke Wilson, whose Channel 2 news team ranks third in the ratings. Sorry, Luke.
Back to the Future Fact: We’re about as far removed from 1985 as Marty McFly was from 1955. Scary thought, right? So is the image of a teenage version of your mom having the hots for you. Chills. Still, this film remains a legend—as does Doc’s DeLorean—and it spawned two additional movies: one that includes a trip to 2015 (we’re pretty much there, so why can’t cars fly yet?) and the final chapter of this trilogy, which rewinds to 1885.
The Big Lebowski This is not ’Nam. This is The Big Lebowski drinking game, man. And there are rules if you want to live the life of a Dude who’s just trying to take it easy. It’s so fuckin’ simple, Donny could do it. So grab your White Russian, slip on your jellies, relax in your robe, and hold onto your toes. But don’t let anyone piss on your carpet—it really pulls the room together.
The Breakfast Club Detention never seemed so, well, not that bad. This quintessential coming-of-age John Hughes film (of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Sixteen Candles fame) begins on a chilly Saturday morning and ends with five high school students each making a personal breakthrough.
Clerks Who knew a day in the lives of two convenience store clerks could be so hilariously inappropriate, leave you in complete and utter shock thanks to a darkened bathroom rendezvous, and launch a decades-long career for a filmmaker from Jersey? Clerks is Kevin Smith’s full-length directorial debut—and it’s often still considered his best film to date. Following employees Dante and Randal as they insult customers, play hockey on the roof, and debate the most important of topics (Jedi vs. Empire Strikes Back, best ways to count the number of your sexual partners), Clerks nails the art of fast-paced, witty dialogue that carries a movie about nothing.
Clueless Ugh, as if.there’s any other classic and quotable teen movie worthy of a drinking game as much as Clueless. The 1995 flick (yup, that makes us feel old) stands the test of time as one of the best teen comedies ever made. Life just wouldn’t be the same without this movie. Like, can you even remember a day when “As if!” and “Whatever!” weren’t a part of your vocab? Clueless also taught us that “Rollin’ with the Homies” is a great song and an even better dance move, that Ren & Stimpy are “way existential,” and that you don’t want to be a “Monet” like Amber (Hagsville!). Now, don’t bug. Let’s cheers to Clueless and our favorite matchmaking virgin who can’t drive, Cher.
