10 Best Drunk Characters in a TV Show or Movie

Who was the best drunk or alcoholic character in a movie or television series? I don't know if it's the best, but I love the drunk airplane scene from Bridesmaids, and who doesn't love Homer Simpson? After polling the internet, people voted these as the best-drunk characters ever.

“The point was he was drinking straight gin masquerading as a martini, and he had a raging alcohol problem like many others at the 4077th. He wasn't trying to be sophisticated. He was trying to sear his nervous system after living two years in a war zone,” one suggested.

2. Kitty Forman, That '70s Show

“Kitty from That '70s Show. When she's at the male strip club, and she's drunk and dancing with her hair bouncing, I lose it,” admitted one. “It took me forever to realize she was a drunk. It had to be pointed out to me. Drunk Fez was always hilarious, too,” a second confessed. “She wasn't always drunk, but when she was, man, she went hard. Love you, Kitty,” a third user declared.

“Given that, I don't think there was ever a scene when Mallory didn't have a drink in her hand. I think Archer was doomed from conception,” stated one. “She either has a drink or is derailing the conversation to discuss where she can find a drink,” another added.

“My favorite scene was Archer walking with another chick into his and Lana's room, and he thinks she hasn't noticed. That was just a gloriously funny scene,” one person commented. “like mother, like son.”

5. Coach McGuirk, Home Movies

“This got me thinking about another tremendously drunk animated character: Coach McGuirk from Home Movies. “I got drunk one night, and now my body looks like a grocery store. So don't get a tattoo. Play soccer.”

6. Barney Gumble, The Simpsons

“I love that episode of The Simpsons where the beer delivery truck arrives, and Moe kicks Barney out, but Barney somehow makes it inside the bar,” shared one. “The rabbit scene stuck with me. Where Barney hallucinates a human-sized rabbit sitting next to him at Moe's, and the rabbit anxiously pleads to Barney, Drink! Or I'll die!” another shared.

7. Frank Gallagher, Shameless

“My pick as well. The dude would fool you into thinking he was redeemable to pi** you off and disappoint you one more time,” someone stated. “I think that's what makes him such a good drunk character. There's a ton of alcoholics that put on the show that they are going to get better, to hide getting drunk more,” a second replied.

8. Doc Holliday, Tombstone

“Fun Fact: He spins his pistols in opposite directions. One goes forward and the other backward. It is a subtle hint that he's not as drunk as he appears and is still fully capable of using his pistols. It's what stops Music Lover. He sees that coordination and knows not to push his luck,” someone suggested. “I'll be your Huckleberry!”

9. Lucille Bluth, Arrested Development

Jessica Walter, the voice of Archer's mom Malory is on the list again for her character as Lucille Bluth on Arrested Development. “Her cackling up at her joke off-camera while she walks down the hall gets me every time,” said one. “For me, the joke isn't funny; it's her thinking it's the best thing ever, and Michael and Job have to wait for her to finish laughing to continue their lines,” another confessed.

10. James “Jim” Lahey, Trailer Park Boys

“He played a great drunk, but he showed his acting chops in the scenes where he was to be pretending to be drunk,” someone stated. “I love the videos where he's just himself: a kind, insightful, gentle human being. His death was one of the rare instances where a celebrity death truly upset me,” a final user commented.
