Apple TV+ comedy drama directed and co-written by Peter Farrelly. Based on a true story, set in 1967, The Greatest Beer Run Ever (2022) follows John “Chickie” Donohue (Zac Efron), who wants to support his friends fighting in Vietnam, so he does something wild, personally bring them American beer. What starts as a well-meaning journey quickly changes Chickie’s life and perspective as he is confronted with the horrors of war.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Rick Duggan: Are you ready?
Chickie Donohue: What are we doing?
Rick Duggan: We’re going to run for our lives.
Rick Duggan: We’re halfway home.
Chickie Donohue: Halfway?!
Chickie Donohue: I’m Chickie Donohue, and I am not supposed to be in Vietnam.
Mr. Donohue: [to Chickie] Hey, get your a** out of bed, you lazy bum. Look at you, sleeping your life away.
Red: [referring to the protesters] Look at these scumbags.
Chickie Donohue: [to the protester] You’re embarrassing yourself, and you’re embarrassing your family.
The Colonel: Do these protesters not know that our soldiers see them on TV. I’d like to go over to Vietnam, and track down all the boys in the neighborhood, and give them a beer.
Chickie Donohue: I could do that.
Red: Do what?
Chickie Donohue: Bring them beer.
Noodle: He’s not serious, he’s hammered. Look at him.
The Colonel: The man is stone sober. That’s his fifth beer, maybe, tops.
Chickie Donohue: I’m going to Vietnam and I’m bringing them beer!
Chickie Donohue: Hey chief, no chance you have a ship going to Vietnam?
Man: Seventeen hundred hours.
Chickie Donohue: Tonight?
Chickie Donohue: It’s not going to be easy, but I’m going to show them that this country is still behind them.
Christine: You’re going to get yourself killed over there.
Chickie Donohue: It’s like you said, everyone’s doing something. I’m doing nothing.
Coates: Smuggling beer into a war-zone, it’s not the smartest thing I’ve ever heard of. It’s certainly not the worst either.
Kevin McLoone: [to Chickie] What if you start up here with Collins, and then, if you’re still alive, you can hustle down to Duggan.
Chickie Donohue: Just came to deliver a sudsy thank you card.
Chickie Donohue: Ta-da.
Rick Duggan: Chickie?
Chickie Donohue: I brought you beer.
Rick Duggan: [to Chickie] You shouldn’t be here. You think this is funny?
Chickie Donohue: I’m not doing this for laughs. I’m doing it for all you guys!
Soldier: Who’s this hand-job?
Rick Duggan: My next-door neighbor. He brought me a beer.
Chickie Donohue: Hey.
Rick Duggan: Come on. Time to go.
Chickie Donohue: Is it over?
Rick Duggan: Yeah. You’re dead.
Rick Duggan: You don’t get it, do you, Chick. This isn’t a John Wayne movie, where you know who the good guys are, and you know who the bad guys are.
Chickie Donohue: I didn’t come all this way just to quit.
Coates: Somebody’s got to be here to see what’s going on. I want the truth told, for them. They’re just kids.
Man: [to Chickie] You’re going to find out it’s a lot harder to get out of a war than it is to get into one.
Chickie Donohue: I’m trying to show them that somebody back home is still behind them.
Rick Duggan: You got a good heart, Chickie. It’s your brain that I’m worried about.
