The main characters in "The Spectacular Now" say "Cheers!" a lot as they bump bottles, but they are not very cheerful. Sutter Keely is a teenage boy alcoholic, who lives in the now. Aimee is a teenage girl, who has been getting by on hard work, sci fi, and dreams of a college education.

There is in the catalog of films a category of serious films about drunks. That leaves out "Hangover" and its sons, but it includes Michael Keaton's brilliant "Clean and Sober," Ray Milland's and Patricia Neal's "The Subject Was Roses," and Jack Lemmon's and Lee Remick's "Days of Wine and Roses."
