Most people were snowed in and couldn't make it to the holiday party last night, but the intimate gathering allowed us to do something we otherwise might not have been able to. We watched The Hangover, again, and made it into a drinking game. The rules were pretty simple: Drink every time your favorite character makes you LOL. My character was Alan, so needless to say I got pretty tipsy.
I love this part when Phil (Bradley Cooper) gives Alan shit about his man purse, to which Alan responds, "It's a satchel...Indiana Jones has one." Typically I wouldn't be in favor of the man purse, but Alan is such a badass, he can pull off pretty much anything.
Stu is pretty damn funny, too. I love how he convinced his bitch of a girlfriend, Melissa, that they were going to a wine tasting in California instead of Vegas. Riiight. One of my favorite Stu moments was at the end when he totally told her off. He was really smart about the way he did it, too. Instead of calling her a psycho-bitch, he said, "You're such a bad person...all the way through to your core." That totally shut her up. I mean, what can you say back to that? I think everyone should try this approach. It's easy to call someone an asshole or bitch, but if you really want to get to someone, call out their insecurities or issues—that's why they're acting like an asshole in the first place anyway. People aren't just born jerks—there's always a reason behind it.
Stu pulling out his own tooth to prove what a good dentist he is was definitely another LOL moment. God, I love this movie.
What's your favorite drinking game these days? Do you ever drink while watching movies? If you want to get really wasted, watch My Cousin Vinny and drink every time someone has the f-word. Trust me, it will work like a charm.
