Gimme Five!: Most Necessary Movie Mustaches

Join us as we treat you to a handful of the best and worst movies, characters, scenes, lines and or other significant cinematic moments. At least in our opinion.

Hey, it's Movember! It's time for a celebration of hilarious movie mustaches. (I wish we could give the top prize to Sarah Silverman at the 2009 Emmys, but she hasn't worn it in a movie. Yet. Unfortunately, this also disqualifies Ron Swanson's mustache, which is factually the greatest mustache of our era.)

5) Will Ferrell, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

If there are two things we remember about Ron Burgundy: scotch and his mustache.

4) Ben Stiller, DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story

But how can we take Ben Stiller seriously as a fitness guru and captain of competitive dodgeball team The Purple Cobras without a Fu Manchu?

3) Samuel L. Jackson, Pulp Fiction

Jules' Winnfield's mustache-sideburn-fro combo is just seriously badass. When one intends to say things like "Every time my fingers touch brain, I'm Super Fly T.N.T., I'm The Guns of the Navarone!" or to quote Ezekiel 25:17, one must have the facial hair to back it up.

2) Dustin Hoffman, Hook

Dustin Hoffman with a mustache? Impossible. With a handlebar that curls at the ends? Preposterous! But it is so, and it comes with matching eyebrows.

1) Michael Cera, Youth in Revolt

I have not seen this movie, but I have seen this mustache and that is all I need.

Other mentionable mustaches:

Matt Dillon, There's Something About Mary - One word: Gross.

Seth Rogen, Superbad - What is a cop without a 'stache?

Charlie Chaplin - Just like a little hand broom.


  1. Oh Matt Dillon and that stash, and what about Spinal Tap!!

    1. Haha, he crossed my mind too.

    2. maybe not to most well known, but its just so... it takes up half his face!
