The 25 best movie drinking games to PLAY RESPONSIBLY

Seeing as we're heading into the holiday season, there's plenty of time to chill and bask in the glow of your fave flicks. There's one way to kick your love of movies up a notch AND revel in the festive spirit. Aside from just re-watching them wearing a Santa hat. Here's the brilliant method to make them way more fun (if a little bit blurred too): pick a film in the list below, follow the rules and become very merry. 

Have a swig every time a zombie bites it in Zombieland. Take a tipple every time someone says, "Mr President" in Independence Day, but avoid having a drink every time Bella sighs, "Edward" in the Twilight movies - not because your liver will revolt, but because you'll have to watch the Twilight films. It wouldn't be very festive to put you through that. 

25. Anchorman (2004)

The movie: Will Ferrell stars as the mustachioed broadcaster living it up as the network's main attraction, only to get shafted when he's lumbered with a female co-host in the form of Christina Applegate's Veronica Corningstone.  

Take a drink when: Ron addresses San Diego. Ron attempts to seduce a lady. Brick Tamland says something stupid. An Apatow favourite makes a cameo.

24. Zombieland (2009)

The movie: This horror comedy takes place in a post-apocalyptic world - it's there in the title, isn't it? The nifty part is that the undead have been roaming for a while when we meet Jesse Eisenberg's survivor, who tells us - via amusing onscreen captions - of certain rules he has to stay alive. That may 

Take a drink when: A rule comes up on screen. Somebody uses a place as a character name. Twinkies are talked about. Tallahassee kills a zombie.

23. Top Gun (1986)

The movie: '80s action classic starring Tom Cruise as a rebellious fighter pilot, Maverick, who goes up against the oppression of... err... those who don't like really really fast planes? There's shirtless volleyball too. No wonder this is a cult classic. 

Take a drink when: There's a homoerotic look shared between characters. Characters high five. Maverick goes against the rules. Danger Zone plays.

22. Scream (1996)

The movie: The best slasher flick of the '90s, starring Neve Campbell as the target of a movie-loving psychopath. Both witty and scary, it launched the careers of its young cast and made a generation school up on horror movie trivia.  

Take a drink when: Someone references another horror movie. A phone rings. Gale Weathers makes a bitchy remark to her cameraman. Ghostface appears.

21. The Hangover (2009)

The movie: A group of pals on a ker-azy stag party (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms) wake up in Vegas the next morning, but can't remember anything about the previous night. They probably played too many movie drinking games. 

Take a drink when: Stu touches his missing tooth or mentions it. Someone says remember. You see a Vegas landmark. Alan copies Phil.
