  • Jack Sparrow mentions or drinks his beloved rum.
  • Jack Sparrow gets slapped or into a fight.
  • The sacred jar of dirt makes an appearance (only applicable when watching Dead Man’s Chest).

Take two drinks every time:

  • Jack Sparrow says “savvy” or “love”

Scary Movie Drinking Game

Scary Movie is already a classic choice for movie night, but this drinking game will make it even better!

Watch the first Scary Movie and take a drink every time:

  • Someone dies.
  • Someone screams or swears.
  • Someone says “Cindy!”
  • Someone insinuates that Ray is gay.
  • Someone hints that Shorty is high.
  • Another movie is referenced or spoofed.

Mean Girls Drinking Game

Having a girls night in? Want to get smashed? We’ve got you covered. Mean Girls the perfect teen comedy movie to throw on for a night of laughs, and it’s even better if you play this game as you watch.

Take a drink every time:

  • Regina says or does something mean.
  • Someone says Regina George’s full name.
  • Someone is wearing pink on screen.

  • Someone says “Boo, you whore!”
  • Someone says “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”
  • Someone says “Get in loser, we’re going shopping!”

Jurassic Park Drinking Game

Take a drink every time:

  • A dinosaur appears on screen.

The Lord of the Rings Drinking Game

Yes, it’s that time again! Middle-Earth is beckoning for yet another marathon of The Lord of the Rings, so buckle in for a full day of nerdy and tipsy fun.

This drinking game is specifically designed for the final movie in the trilogy, as nine straight hours of drinking might make you fall asleep long before Frodo makes it to Mordor.

Instead, after completing the first two movies during your marathon, it should be evening and now more socially acceptable to break out the drinks for the final act in the series.

Take a drink every time:

  • Someone says “My precious!”
  • Someone says “Mr. Frodo.”
  • Someone wears the One Ring.
  • Someone dies.

Finish your drink when:

  • Gollum falls to his death in Mount Doom.
  • You think the movie should have ended. There are several concluding scenes to choose between.

Twilight Drinking Game

Despite being a teen drama sensation, Twilight is the kind of movie that’ll have you in stitches even when you watch it sober. Cringeworthy lines and a bizarre plot that takes itself way too seriously are key ingredients for accidental hilarity.

To make Twilight even more entertaining to watch, pair it with this drinking game that’ll help make the movie more bearable.

Take a drink every time:

  • Bella stammers.
  • Bella bites her lip or trips over.
  • Edward does that weird stare thing.
  • A vampire sparkles or hisses.
  • You hear a thunderclap during the iconic baseball scene.
