Wong Fei Hung, Hung Ga Legend, Voted 7th Sloppiest Movie Drunk by TIME
At first I wasn't sure if I should be proud or horrified that Wong Fei Hung, Chinese folk hero and subject of 34,294,521 kung fu movies, was just voted the 7th sloppiest drunk in the history of cinema, right between Dudley Moore's "Arthur" and Billy Bob Thornton in "Bad Santa".
Now that I've had a few Heineken, I'm sure.
The full list:
- Coach Buttermaker, The Bad News Bears
- Miles, Sideways
- Willie, Bad Santa
- Wong Fei-hung, The Legend of Drunken Master
- Arthur, Arthur
- Henry Chinaski, Barfly
- Martha, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
- Ben Sanderson, Leaving Las Vegas
- Don Birnam, The Lost Weekend
- Withnail, Withnail & I

I just got back from a gig, and I'm feeling drunken mastery, and I say be proud.

This only goes to show what terrible writers/researchers Time has.

I have to disagree, Lily. (If you're being sarcastic as per hiccup, sorry.)
It's not a commentary on WFH per se, but rather the way he is portrayed on film.
Consider Jackie Chan in 'Drunken Master 2'.

He does get pretty drunk.

#3: Ben Sanderson, Leaving Las Vegas, for sure. In fact, I haven't seen all the movies on the list but I think he may be the only one listed who actually dies from drinking.

I am sure Jackie's Hung Gar is much better than yours.

If you have a source I would greatly appreciate it Chen.
There are plenty of others who have played WFH (going back to the 40s/50s) who also trained in the style: Gwan Tak Hing, Gordon Liu, and Jet Li to name some of the most famous.
But can Chan beat me at drinking?
Can you, for that matter?
