What’s more expendable than cheap beers by the dozen?
THE EXPENDABLES has all the “top” action stars of our generation (really though, where’s Seagal & Van Damme?) working on covert missions and generally just being badass, it also shows Stallone get a full tattoo in under 10 seconds, how badass is that!
Our usual question, What to drankwiththat for the Expendables? the only logical answer, ALL OF IT.
Knowing the film would land somewhere in the 80-90 minute mark we had to get selective, our initial ambitious idea of splitting a 30 pack was shaved down to a more reasonable and arguably more appropriate 6 pack…each.
In relation to past drankwiththats this one is relatively simple.
• Stop at the nearest deli for the beers, we opted to choose strictly American 12oz cans, though you wouldn’t go wrong with a Russian, British or Chinese selection.
• Hiding the sixers to sneak into the theater on a 95 degree day may not appear to be an easy feat but in relation to overthrowing a fictional dictator of a fictional island guarded by Stonecold Steve Austin this job is nothing. Baggy pants and loose sticking tape are great for lower leg hiding or a better recommendation is the utility messenger bag, oversized with good faux coverage to keep the beers cold and hidden.
• once inside, crack your first of 6 at the site of local Somalian pirates executing hostages, if you are done with that first one by the time Dolph Lundgren blows up his first torso you know you’re pacing correctly, the sixth will empty just as Jason “Christmas” Statham recites his closing poem while playing darts with a knife.
This is a drankwiththat that we can almost guarantee these Expendables would thoroughly approve of though they might question all those carbs.
There’s rumors of a sequel in the works, if we could get a guarantee of at least one boob shot, a better face-off between Stallone and Lundgren and of course a lot more Mickey we’ll definitely be back.
