Movember Motivation: The Greatest Ever Movie Moustaches
Get ready for a whirlwind of glorious moustache inspiration.
With Movember in full swing, you Mobros are gonna need some deep inspiration in order to grow a truly awesome 'stache. Well, look no further, here are the greatest moustaches cinema has to offer.
White Goodman- Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
As a professional trainer and dodgeballer, nothing screams manly like a giant 'stache. Ben Stiller leads the Globo Gym "Purple Cobras" to near-victory with two things: The inability to understand when he is being told no by women, and a glorious moustache. Yeah, that's him taking the bull by the horns. It's a metaphor. But that actually happened though.
Bill "the Butcher" Cutting - Gangs of New York
Daniel Day Lewis pulls off an insane "Bill the Butcher" in Martin Scorcese's Gangs of New York. This era was a pretty messed up time in new York's history, and nothing displays power and instills fear like a well curled moustache. it's sinister and it killed a whole lot of immigrants. That's... not so cool. What IS cool is his stache.
The Stranger - The Big Lebowski
Little is know about this mysterious wanderer other than he has one of the most recognized moustaches in cinema. Every time I see him I quite literally point and yell LOOK! IT'S THAT MOUSTACHE GUY! Sam Elliott is an incredible actor, but let's be honest, it's that 'stache that puts asses in seats.
Ignacio/Nacho - Nacho Libre
NACHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Ok, I know you're thinking that's a pretty weak moustache, BUT YOU COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG. Yes, Jack Black is awesome on all accounts, and yes, that perm is of godly creation. And YES those stretchy pants make him look like a cross between Batman, Superman, and the Flash. But the elegance of his suave Mexistache is what make Nacho Libre what it is: A MASTERPIECE. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this movie deserved an oscar.
Machete Cortez - Machete
Danny Trejo is a terrifying human being, but in the best way possible. He's been a cameo in almost every movie ever made, and that's okay because he's the ultimate badass. Recently he get his own headlining act as Machete Cortez. And, for the first time, his moustache got the spotlight it so rightly deserved! Legend has it that his 'stache made a pact with the devil in order to secure Trejo's spot as a moustached asskicker. Well, Satan, it worked. (Also note that the explosions in this picture were triggered by the moustache. Yeah.)
The Bandit - Smokey and the Bandit
That smile is golden and the hat fits well. But nothing defines Burt Reynolds like his moustache. Forget Julia Roberts, this man's moustache is the real America's Sweetheart! I'm also going to venture a guess that this was the original moustache ride. You win sir, you win at life.
Ron Burgundy- Anchorman
No moustache list would be complete without the greatest moustache of them all. Ron Burgundy aka "Channel 4 News' greatest anchorman" aka "Papa Burgundy", is the man with a moustache that could make a wolverine purr. You don't get to be number 1 News anchor in San-Diego with a shaved face. Why do you think Wes Mantooth was always number 2 in the ratings? Cause Vince Vaughn refused to grow any facial hair for the role (don't quote me on that).
So have we inspired you Montreal? May the mo flow sting this month! Are you gonna copy one of these glorious 'staches or just let us know if we missed someone important in the comments bellow!
