TV is a big letdown these days. The abundance of reality shows has killed quality programming, with a few exceptions and of course HBO.
So thank God for movies.
My Netflix queue is backed up like D.C. traffic. Even if there are no good new movies out, I can go back and watch a classic. Movies don't let me down.
So forget Kim Kardashian, here are real entertainers. These are the top 5 movie characters I want to drink a beer with.
Ok this one is obvious and probably makes every guy's top 5. The Dude is a legend. If we went out drinking, I think I would actually ditch beer and drink a White Russian with him. I would hope he'd bring Walter, too.
Let's move on to a more obscure one.
From the movie The Princess Bride (bad name), it's one of the greatest lines in movie history in my opinion. The video doesn't embed, so watch it here. If you don't get chills at Inigo's last line there is something wrong with you. A dude spends his whole life searching for the six-fingered man who killed his father so he can kill him back. Yea, I'd have a beer with him. He even has his own t-shirt.
Jim Carrey's best character, period. Ace is absolutely insane and hilarious. Ace 1 & 2 are two of the few movies that I can watch over and over again and laugh out loud every time. Beers with this guy would be legendary.
Of course I would go to the bar with a freaking wizard. Gandalf is the coolest one, too (ahem, Dumbledore..). When he's not battling Balrogs, he's smoking pipeweed and shooting off fireworks. What's not to like?
Frank the Tank
Who I believe is Will Ferrel's 2nd greatest movie character, behind Ron Burgundy. Frank would be more fun to drink with though. Give him a beer bong and then sit back and watch the show.
Runners up: King Leonidas, Tony Montana, Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp, he's twisted), Sarah Conner (see, I got a woman in there.)
Your turn! Let's hear your top 5.
