Drunk Movie 2: The unnecessary sequel

Films for drunk people part 2. The character takes a drink, you take a drink
  [vote for,

Ripped off from Loris' "Front Loaded plot" films for drunk people where the action degenerates into stupor like slowness as the viewer gets progressively sloshed. The addition being that the characters in the movie get similarly sloshed because you pick one actor and drink when they drink.

One character might be talking about the "justification for the ontological necessity of modern man's existential dilemma " while shipping a glass of chardonnay at the beginning of the movie then at the end just starts blurting "I wrote a book but the corporate fascist publishers are all right wing pigs!" over and over to anyone who'll listen at the end. Having picked that character as your drinking avatar, you'd be just as drunk as the character would be as the movie would progress. I see a lot of character arcs into drunken emotion either positive (Guy leaning into his cop partner: Heeeyy! I love you man!") or negative (Guy stands up and addresses the whole congregation: You're all a bunch of God damned right wing commies!)

Not sure if this is different enough from Loris' great idea to justify a new post but I'll let the bones or buns decide.

       You may want to add the caveat that if the character begins the movie already sloshed then you have to do catchup drinking until you reach their level, then you can only match them sip for sip thereafter.

       Some French films do give the impression that everyone on the set (including the script writer) is completely hammered by the end of it.

       Flattery gets you everywhere.   

       I like the idea of the crew getting wasted too.

       //I like the idea of the crew getting wasted too.//   

       Whoa, I like that idea best of all!   

       Cast remains sober, but camera men, editors, sound guys and most importantly the director are all black out drunk during the whole process.   

       Can you say Cannes palme d'or? No really, can you? Because I have no clue how that thing's pronounced.   

       By the way, I heard a funny name suggested for porno movie awards: "The Hairy Palm D'or".   

       We have some fun here don't we folks?

       I was picturing that great shot when somebody puts a camera down on it's side thinking they turned it off but it continues filming people's feet coming in from the side with the floor turning into a wall. This might be the first time such a shot made it through post to the actual theater.

       Christopher Nolan -> Peter Jackson -> David Lynch -> L. Ron Hubbard.
