25 best party movies ever

Treat your “morning after” brain to one of these classic party films after this year’s office do

Old School (2003)

Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell are all 30-somethings desperately trying to relive the fun-filled glory days of student life. Starting a fraternity to legally move back to campus results in plenty of partying and results in Will Ferrell running nude through the street. You have been warned.

Porky’s (1982)

If Porky’s taught us anything, it’s that popping the old chap into a hole in the wall is not a good idea. In 1982, this tale of teenagers trying to lose their virginity at a local house of ill-repute was wonderfully shocking. In retrospect, it seems almost quaint, but it smashed down the barriers of decency for the decades to come.

Very Bad Things (1998)

A bunch of guys head to the bright lights of Vegas for a bachelor party. But rather than steal a tiger from Mike Tyson or marry a stripper, this ill-fated bunch manage to impale a stripper’s head on a coat hanger, take out the hotel security guard and do away with the bodies in the desert. Delightful.

American Pie (1999)

Stifler’s Mom, the apple pie scene, “Say my name, bitch”, band camp – American Pie has more memorable scenes than most. It even spawned – for better or worse – the term MILF. Its emotional ancestor – Porky’s – would be proud.

House Party (1990)

The parents are out of town; the kids throw a party – it’s a classic teen party plot. For many an ‘80s baby, House Party was their first experience of a true party movie – and the first time many had seen a hi-top so impressive. It inspired a generation of parent-defying (and hormonal) teens who thought it was a good idea to sneak out for a night of cheap booze and promiscuity in an adult-free environment. C’mon, we’ve all been there.
