Let’s face it. Non-Stop is not an easy film to sit through. But hand me a bottle of Jägermeister (large, please) and an abundance of shot glasses and it would be a different matter entirely. So, for your enjoyment and the promise of your sanity, here’s the rules to the Non-Stop Drinking Game. I’ll meet you on its Home Ent release date with a sleeping bag and a couple of paracetamol. Bottoms up.
- Bill’s family (that’s Neeson, obvs) is threatened.
- An Oscar-winning (or nominated) actor says a line that makes you want to blow your brains out. This includes Scoot McNairy, Corey Stoll and Shea Whigham who totes have it in them to win a gold statue.
- Bar Paly is treated as horrifically generic.
- You are told how much money needs to be transferred.
- The network goes down.
- The network goes up again.
- You’re confused if the network is up or down.
- One of the air hostesses looks like an extra from Star Trek.
- You think you know who the culprit is.
- Expositional dialogue is spoken. Hell, finish your drink.
- You are envious of Lupita’s amazing guns.
- Lady Mary looks concerned.
- You forget this isn’t Taken.
- Lupita says something in a flawless accent and makes everyone else look rubbish. Cheers!
- You laugh at the name of the airline.
- Corey Stoll looks like he means business.
- Bill uses predictive text in a ridiculous way. E.G.: He types out ‘passengers’, but can’t be arsed with something shorter.
- You laugh, but aren’t meant to.
- Shea Whigham is criminally wasted. Again.
- The camera wants you to suspect somebody.
- Someone makes a generic terrorism reference.
- You forgot Linus Roache existed.
- Someone says ‘wanker’. Us Brits can’t stop.
- Julianne Moore makes you question your sexuality. Females only.
- You stop caring.
- Something nonsensical happens. Down your drink, then pour another. Down that one too – you need to get through this somehow.
- The passengers putting their hands in the air look like they’re having more fun than you.
