->''"Fifteen minutes later we had our first taste of whiskey\\
There was uncles givin' lectures on ancient Irish hist'ry\\

Several characters get [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll drunk, wasted and frisky]] over the course of a night, often portrayed in [[AdrenalineTime alternating slow and fast motion]] at [[DutchAngle wild camera angles]], with heavy dance music over the top. DizzyCam, JitterCam and {{Facecam}} will be much in evidence. Someone free-pouring spirits into/onto himself or someone else is obligatory, alongside other assorted AlcoholInducedIdiocy. Most likely there will be stronger drugs involved as well, which may be [[HookersAndBlow explicitly shown]] or [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar just implied]].

Sometimes shown as a still-frames montage, perhaps imitating either the MissingTime such parties tend to [[WhatDidIDoLastNight leave one with the following morning]], or the effect of browsing a Website/{{Facebook}} photo album.

A trendy modern variation on DrunkenMontage;
* Similarities: JitterCam, DutchAngle, [[CameraAbuse simulation of]] BeerGoggles, ambiguous passing of time, disorientation.
* Differences: Drunken Montage is when a character is [[DrowningMySorrows drinking alone, lonely and depressed]]; Binge Montage features hordes of other people and is, if not happy, at least hedonistic and fun.

See WildTeenParty and APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy, common settings for the technique. For a montage where one pigs out rather than get drunk, see GluttonyMontage.


* The "Don't Turn a Night Out into a Nightmare" series of Australian [[ScareEmStraight PSAs]] make heavy use of this.

* Gets used in the ''ComicBook/{{Finder}}'' story "Voice" when Rachel gatecrashes an Ascian wake, gets drunk and high, and is implied to end up having group sex with several men.

[[folder:Film -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'' uses ice cream for a DrunkOnMilk variant.

[[folder:Film -- Live Action]]
* This trope is used heavily throughout ''Film/RequiemForADream'' as drug use/addiction is central to the film's plot.
* The "[[UsefulNotes/IrishTravellers pikey]] [[TheFunInFuneral funeral]]" in ''Film/{{Snatch}}'', and the premature heist celebration in ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels''. Creator/GuyRitchie likes this one.
* ''Film/HumanTraffic'', along with several other 1990s rave movies.
* Harvey Keitel in ''Film/MeanStreets'' is possibly the TropeMaker.
* Happens in ''Film/PaulBlartMallCop'', with disastrous results.
* There's a great one in ''Film/TheSaltonSea.''
* The bullet time bar montage (set to ''[[Music/TheBlackEyedPeas Imma Be]]'') in ''Film/TheOtherGuys'' is awesome. An unusual version -- Rather than a TimeCompressionMontage, there's a fake [[TheOner continuous shot]] in which the camera weaves through the slow-mo antics going on over the course of the evening (including a worrying number of incidences of JugglingLoadedGuns).
* ''Film/GardenState'' combines this with AloneInACrowd, as a spaced out Zach Braff sits stationary on a couch and the party carries on around him.
* The film version of ''Film/{{Percy Jackson|and the Olympians}}'' featured this when the titular character and friends became ensnared by the Lotus-Eaters, only [[FantasticDrug with lotuses in place of drugs]].
%%* The bachelor party in ''Film/VeryBadThings''.
%%* ''Series/TheInbetweeners Movie'' has several.
%% * Possibly the catalyst scene in ''Film/HotTubTimeMachine''.
* The bar scene in ''Film/TheHeat'', in which the uptight Ashburn lets her hair down and the OddCouple finally forge a connection.
* ''Film/TheHangover'': One of the characters finds their phone, with pictures on it from the previous night that they can't remember. It's shown while the end credits play.
* In ''Film/AdeleHasntHadHerDinnerYet'', when Nick Carter (America's [[GreatDetective Greatest Detective]] FamedInStory) arrives in Prague, he wants to go sights-seeing and get to known the city. Police commissioner Ledvina shows him Charles Bridge and other sights and tells him the history; however, they end up touring pubs in a beer drinking montage which ends early in the morning.
* The sequel to ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'' features a group of characters that get drunk, wasted and frisky over the course of a night, portrayed in alternating slow and fast motion at wild camera angles, with heavy dance music over the top. Dizzy Cam, Jitter Cam and Facecam are much in evidence. Someone free-pours spirits into/onto oneself and someone else, alongside other assorted Alcohol-Induced Idiocy. There are stronger drugs involved as well. This leads to MissingTime and lots of WhatDidIDoLastNight.
* ''Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls'' has one set to ''The Sorcerer's Apprentice'' (!).
* Parodied, like everything else, in ''Film/WetHotAmericanSummer''. Several of the teenage camp counselors get a ride into town with their boss and the musical montage kicks off: [[SerialEscalation first they are sneaking some cigarettes, then buying some beer, then weed, and before long they (and their boss) are shooting up heroin and smoking crack in a dilapidated house full of junkies.]] [[SnapBack The next cut has them returning to the summer camp none the worse for wear]]:
--> '''J.J.:''' "It's nice to get into town, even it's only for a half hour!"

* During the episode "Dry Guys" of ''Series/{{Workaholics}}'', the guys take a break from drinking, and realize some of their underlying, non-substance abuse issues. However, this is all 'too real' for them, and after going through a Sober Montage earlier in the episode (where everything they do seems extra stupid/creepy in the sober light of day), at the end they go through a montage of the same kind of stuff, only now that they're drunk again, its all a lot of fun.
* ''Series/{{Skins}}'', especially the (in)famous [[WildTeenParty trailers]] for it.
* ''Series/{{Misfits}}'': Nathan and Ruth enjoy one of these in the second episode, with the two of them getting completely smashed on everything vaguely alcoholic left in the community centre, trying on costumes in the supply cupboards, and clowning around in wheelchairs.
* The episode of ''Series/{{Spaced}}'' where Tim and Daisy go out for the evening (and get into [[MundaneMadeAwesome a finger-gunfight]] with a bunch of yobs).
* One episode of ''{{Series/Community}}'' has a montage of Jeff and Abed getting drunk, complete with odd costume switches and BreakfastClub style dancing.
* In ''Series/{{Parks and Recreation}}'' Season 3, the episode called "The Fight" where all the Parks employees get drunk on Snake Juice. It also features Ron Swanson doing a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8ZpEokvNCQ&feature=related completely hilarious dance]]
* ''Series/{{Cougartown}}'' once featured a binge PhotoMontage.
* ''Series/BreakingBad'' had Jesse taking the money Walt gave him to buy an RV, and spending it all on strippers.
** In a later episode, he deals with committing his first murder by throwing a three-day drugs-and-booze orgy.
* One of the {{Cold Open}}s on ''Series/SixFeetUnder'' involved a montage of a young actress at a movie opening ingesting a truly epic amount of cocaine over the course of the evening. Given the show, it was not terribly shocking [[BodyOfTheWeek how that ended for her]].
* ''Series/{{Phoneshop}}'' portrayed a KlatchianCoffee binge this way, with the salesmen hypercaffeinating themselves in order to hit a sales target.
* On ''Series/MurdochMysteries'', Constable George Crabtree's role in one investigation (that happens to take place in his hometown) is to get drunk with locals so that they can steal him a part of a treasure map and expose themselves to Detective Murdoch. George drinks, dances, sings and is forced to kiss a fish. Good times.
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. Sherlock takes John out on his stag night, and despite his meticulous planning both end up drinking too much. We get this trope, ending in both of them collapsed in a heap on the stairs at 221b Baker Street - only for Mrs. Hudson to wander past and exclaim that they've only been out for two hours.
* In the second episode of ''Series/BroadCity'', Abbi smokes pot in a dentist's bathroom, which leads to one of this.
* Several times in ''Series/{{Threesome}}'', despite the fact that it was one such binge that led to the awkward pregnancy that gives the series its premise, and the characters all swore to give up drink and drugs as a result.

* The video for Music/TheProdigy's "Smack My Bitch Up".
* In Music/GreenDay's video for the ''American Idiot'' song, "Jesus of Suburbia".
* In Music/TheRollingStones' video for "Like a Rolling Stone"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zidiWe9yq88 This]] music video for Music/JonathanCoulton's song ''I Feel Fantastic'' includes a BingeMontage when he's stood up by his date, culminating in him falling into his bed. Though he's not just drunk, he's also hopped up on a variety of different pills.
* The MusicVideo for Music/{{Metallica}}'s "Whiskey in the Jar."

* In ''VideoGame/RockBand 3'', once your band reaches a certain level of fame you'll be treated to a cutscene of them attending a party on the roof of a skyscraper. The video depicts them uncorking a bottle of champagne, acting intoxicated while partying, and it ends the next morning with them all passed out.

* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' #[[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1521 1521]].
* [[Webcomic/AnsemRetort TIME TRAVEL BINGE 2010!]]
* The [[http://wordwearycomic.blogspot.com/2011/10/1-october-2011.html first season finale]] of ''Webcomic/TheWordWeary''.

* ''Frame by Frame'' analyses a binge montage from ''Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAGGTGMFP5Y this]] episode.

* ''WebVideo/LawnJustice'': What do three 27-year-olds do with fifty bucks? Body shots, twerking, and making out with random passers-by, apparently.

* [[HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight Krusty]] did this once in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (of course).
** Also spoofed when Bart and Milhouse overdosed on Apu's super-concentrated slurpees.
* Happened at least once in WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry, namely when Jerry gets drunk during a fight between Tom and another cat that had a bottle of champagne dropping its contents on the mouse.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'':
** Pickles, unsurprisingly, has one of these in the episode "Hateredy".
** The whole band does in "Dethhealth" - during a vacation they took to get clean for a physical.
--->'''Ofdensen''': Well, judging by the way you look, and smell, I'd say you spent the whole week binge-drinking and doing drugs.\\
'''Nathan''': ummm...oops?
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' Bender in the short story where he is turned human. At one point, he wanders out of the bar at closing time to enter a doughnut shop as it opens. He then leaves the doughnut shop at closing time and heads back to the bar. This time with two sexy bakers in tow.
* One of these scenes was storyboarded for an unproduced episode of ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'' on which Andy, Jim and a coworker go on a tequila binge. Notable is Jim inexplicably changing into a shirt that reads "One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor" halfway through the montage. A tequila binge that doesn't result in inexplicable clothing exchange is no tequila binge at all...
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', finding out he has cancer, uses it to guilt Woodhouse out of tickets to a Vegas vacation he'd planned all year with his brother. Cut to Archer and Woodhouse's brother in a still-picture montage of a serious Vegas bender.
* Seen several times in "The Ghost", an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': Each time Carrie possesses Gumball's body, she takes it on an eating rampage, with Gumball waking up the morning after in a pile of leftovers. The scenes themselves are a parody of the "Smack My Bitch Up" music video mentioned earlier.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMilkyWay'': Much of the cartoon is this, as the kittens go to town binging on milk up in the Milky Way.
