Whenever a big party movie comes out, like Todd Phillips’ Project X over the weekend, best party scene lists flood the Internet as they should, as they give us all a chance to relive the two greatest party scenes of all time: Can’t Hardly Wait’s “Paradise City” scene and Eurotrip’s “Scotty Doesn’t Know” scene. What goes less explored, however, are those unpleasant party scenes, parties where bad things happen.
These are the 10 Most Unpleasant Party scenes, from the partygoers’ perspectives.
Signs — Because nobody wants their kid’s birthday party disturbed by a green alien.
The Dark Knight — Because while having the Joker attend your soiree may sound cool in theory, he’s kind of a dick at parties.
Eyes Wide Shut — Orgies sound like great parties, unless you’re in a Kubrick film.
The Ice Storm — Key parties sound great, but in reality, no one really wants to go home with their overweight suburban neighbor, especially during an ice storm.
Slumber Party Massacre — Can you imagine going to get a beer only to find one the corpse of another party-goer in the refrigerator.
The Room — This one may actually be worse for the actors involved because it means you’ll never act in Hollywood again.
Weird Science — Sure, it’s great fun until the goons in motorcycles show up and humiliate the nerds in front of their girlfriends.
Very Bad Thing — A bachelor party where almost everyone ultimately ends up dead in surprisingly violent fashion? Nobody wants to die protecting their minivan.
Das Boot — It looks like a blast, until the guy with the gun shows up and starts spraying bullets.
Jacob’s Ladder — Of the many things you never want to see at a party, chief among them has to be Satan’s serpent fucking your wife on the dance floor.
