ON MOVIES ~ Trashed...

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Boozing...

The Gal Herself suggested a while back that we feature movies where the characters not only imbibe, but they get wasted. Drunk. Trashed. Enjoy the drink a bit more than is healthy. The Bumbles have been known to bumble their way through a happy evening. Thankfully no one was filming. Here are some movies and moments that made us tipsy. Share your selections on your blog, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
  • Barfly (1987) - Mickey Rourke playing awful before he lived awful



  • Animal House (1978) - college hijinks



  • Leaving Las Vegas (1995) - committed to dying



  • Revenge of the Nerds (1984) - tricycle riding drunkenness



  • Wayne's World (1992) - Bohemian Rhapsody keeps Phil from spewing



  • The Lost Weekend - (1945) The ultimate bender, Oscar style



  •  Do you have a topic to suggest to the Monday Movie Meme? Or would you like to guest host? Let us know in the Comments section or send us an e-mail.

    Very cool blog! I stumbled upon you through Best Posts of the Week and enjoyed what I saw. Having a link to an "Animal House" clip will always draw me in, one of the all-time classics. Sign me up, I'm your newest follower!

    Dammit! You picked almost all the movies I had in mind when I suggested the topic! Even Lost Weekend! So, while I bow to your selections, I did manage to dig deep and come up with two others that are worthy.

    I had fun with this post! I got to list one of my fave movies from last year :) Visit my picks HERE.

    the actor that first popped into my mind was Dean Martin--the most famous drunk ever! Other than that the only movie I came up with is "MASH", the movie and the series. The war was one long excuse for being drunk.

    So, the only one I've seen in Leaving Las Vegas. I really need to start going through the list I have of all the movies I want to see from this meme over the past year!
    Here's mine. http://stacybuckeye.wordpress.com/2010/11/01/monday-movie-meme-trashed/

    Great theme, great answers! I've seen most of these, but I really must re-watch The Lost Weekend.

    You got all the good ones! Actually I do recall a very funny scene in Trading Places when Dan Akroyd is dressed up like Santa and is drunk as a skunk. Sorry I am not playing this week...I'm a big unorganized mess and have to get my act in gear for our trip Wednesday!

    The Animal House one is a classic!

    I freaking love Tashiro and drunken bike ride in Nerds! My choice is up :)

    Only movie on this list I've seen is #2. I can't tell you how many times I've seen Animal House but I absolutely loved it! Plus in high school I had such a huge crush on Tom Hulce that I had to watch it over and over again LOL.

    "TOGA!" Such a twistedly funny movie...
    On a less humorous note, I can only think of "Days of Wine and Roses"--Jack Lemmon and Lee Remnick. A gut-wrencher.

    Oh wow. We watched Barfly in media class my senior year in high school and I kept saying the whole time "What in the world IS this thing?"

    Lisa said...

    "Ironwood"--such a depressing movie, with Jack Nicholson as I recall.
