From the champagne extravaganza of "The Great Gatsby," to that down-in-the-Valley vintage house party from "Clueless," to the best Westerosian wedding ever to involve a killer bird pie, movies and TV are full of fests, bashes and balls that put your average party to shame. Below, we round up the onscreen get-togethers for which we would've most loved to be on the guest list.
The pre-apocalypse party from "This Is the End"
This get-together of celebrity friends looked like a great little party, at least before the portal to hell opened up and unleashed the end of the world as we know it.
The "Catching Fire" pre-Games bash
Despite the tragic circumstances and imminent death awaiting various attendees, this crowd clearly knows how to have a good time.
The "Clueless" Christmas party
Who wants to play suck-and-blow?
Every party Gatsby ever threw
Ain't no party like a Gatsby party, 'cause a Gatsby party don't stop... until two people are dead, multiple hearts are broken, and everyone else is just kind of over the whole "Jazz Age decadence" thing.
The "Animal House" toga party
The Purple Wedding from "Game of Thrones"
Even before the delightful event that gave the Purple Wedding its name, this high-class marital celebration was extravagant even by King's Landing standards.
The "Can't Hardly Wait" house party
Still the best graduation bash ever to grace the screen.
The victory celebration in Rohan from "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King"
Dancing hobbits, drunken dwarves, and dozens of sexy long-haired horsemen looking for a place to put their... swords. Yep, we'd like to be on that guest list.
The epic bash from "Superbad"
Great party. Period. (Get it?)
The "Bridesmaids" puppy shower
Elegant hors d'oeuvres, puppy party favors, and a friend-versus-friend blowout over anal bleaching: If only all bridal showers could be this fantastic.
The Yule Ball from "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"
Adult muggles who just wanna go to wizard prom, put your hands up.
It's too late to get on the list for these events, but MTV is throwing its own epic party: Tune in for the network debut of "Project X" at 10pm ET on Friday, February 6.
