Mad-Men-Season-3This weekend’s biggest onscreen event isn’t in movie theaters, it’s on the small screen — the premiere of the third season of AMC’s smash hit, Mad Men. While we’re looking forward to another season of chic outfits, flagrant adultery, and on-the-job cocktail hours, what we really love is the behind the scenes drama of the advertising world. Before we head back to 1960s New York, let’s take a look at our favorite funny films about admen and women, after the jump…










Beer, 1985


Firmly set in the 1980s, ‘Beer’ is a hilarious cautionary tale of the excesses of the advertising world. When three ordinary guys become the spokesperson for a beer company, things start to go downhill for everyone involved. Don Draper could learn a lesson from these guys.



How to Get Ahead in Advertising, 1989




A British farce about an adman with a really bad attitude, a boil and a mental breakdown.



Crazy People, 1990




Yet another story of an unstable pitchman. Only this one, played by Dudley Moore, ends up in the nuthouse, where his career really takes off.
