With the wild and hilarious house parties of Bad Neighbours 2 hitting cinema screens on May 6, we take a look back at some classic movie house parties from the past.
5. Sixteen Candles (1984)
John Hughes’ teen movie doesn’t just feature a great house party – it also features a great shot of the aftermath: empty beer cans, dried up pizza and bleary-eyed revellers.
4. Clueless (1995)
Fashion trends may have moved on since 1995, but the famous “Val party” still looks like a blast – at least until the bit where Brittany Murphy’s Tai gets knocked out by a flying shoe.
3. Superbad (2007)
This house party doesn’t end too well for Jonah Hill and Michael Cera’s heroes, but that’s partly why we’ve included it in the list. After all, we’ve all been to a house party that turned bad.
2. House Party (1990)
This whole film is about a grounded high school student who sneaks out to attend a house party, so it’s a good job the bash itself turns into a full-scale rager. Skip the dodgy sequels, though.
1. National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978)
Thanks to this classic Jim Belushi comedy, the toga party became a staple on US college campuses for years to come. The film’s budget was so small that Belushi’s wife Judy and Deborah Nadoolman, wife of director John Landis, actually made all the togas themselves.
