7 Memorable Movie Whiskey Drinkers

2. Bob Harris – Lost In Translation

Now, we don’t know if Bob Harris was much of a whiskey drinker in his down time, but the man was flown to Tokyo to take a slow sip of the elixir, then turn to the camera and say, “For relaxing times, make it Suntory time,” Suntory being a very expensive Japanese whiskey.

Judging by the way he was able to stare at that tumbler, then look pensively at the camera, ole’ Bob seemed to be a whiskey drinker of the highest caliber. This is further affirmed by the fact that he gets drunk enough to sing Roxy Music during the karaoke scene.

1. Bluto Blutarsky – Animal House

Anyone who ever claimed that whiskey was the thinking man’s drink should probably revisit Animal House, in which Bluto, forlorn over the closing of his frat house, drowns his pain in whiskey, killing a bottle of Jack Daniels in about 15 seconds.

Everyone in high school or college knew someone who attempted this feat at one point or another, never once successfully. The worst case scenario is that you are able to, against all odds, kill the bottle, then die of alcohol poisoning. The best case scenario is that you throw up attempting to drink it, looking like an idiot for trying to be like John Belushi.
