It is no secret that two of my favorite things to do are drinking and watching movies. So, I’m sure you can imagine how filled I was with ecstatic delight when I received a review copy of this fun new book called Lights Camera Booze! What a great title! Lights Camera Booze is a book filled with hilarious, illustrated Drinking Games based on many very popular movies such as American Pie, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. Exciting!
Authors Kourtney Jason and Lauren Metz (with illustrations by Amanda Lanzane) have come up with games for thirty-three films, most of which are just legendary (“Bueller?”), so watching them while playing a drinking game can possibly make them even more memorable – or not, depending on how well you hold your liquor! Just looking through the pages of games made me want to start drinking and watching movies right away!
What makes this book even more insanely fun is that the ladies of Lights Camera Booze have also inccluded cocktail recipes related to a central theme/meme of each film (which they call the “Drink of The Game”) so you can get even more nerdily into it. For example, you can:
- Take a sip from a Sex Panther each time Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy incorrectly states a fact!
- Guzzle a glass of McLovin-Ade each time Seth draws a Penis in Superbad!
- Down a White Russian each time The Dude, well, downs a White Russian in The Big Lebowski!
And in case your head is not already exploding in anticipation of playing all of these games while enjoying moments of sweet nostalgia during your favorite movies, each game is also accompanied by a list of interesting trivia associated with that title. Did you know that after the film Scream’s release, the use of Caller ID more than tripled? I did not know that!
Lights Camera Booze would make the Best Christmas Gift Ever for the film-addicted booze hounds on your list and absolutely must be kept on hand for all of your future Movie Watching Parties.
