15. The Godfather (1972)
Chances of getting laid (1-10): 1. Unless you want to sleep with the fishes, you should probably keep your mitts off any females in the Corleone family.
The drink situation (1-10): 7. We assume the wine was flowing heavily at this little shindig.
Chances of police interference (1-10): 1. The police know better than to mess with The Godfather.
How’s the music? (1-10): 7. It depends on your feelings about live bands singing classic Italian tunes. We dig it.
We know what you’re thinking: What the hell is Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather doing on this list? Right? Let’s not forget, though, that the entire trilogy begins with a party.
Yes, that’s right. Don Vito Corleone’s daughter Connie (Talia Shire) is getting married in a beautiful traditional Italian backyard wedding. There’s a fancy live band, wine flowing like crazy, family all around, and even Momma Corleone gets up to join in with a quick song.
Sure, there’s no naked ladies running around or anyone doing keg stands, but what other party could you possibly have Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) hearing requests, one of which leads to Jack Woltz waking up with a severed horse head in his bed? Go ahead, name one. We dare you.
