The donut movie bucket list with movies where donuts are eaten for many reasons and one where donuts eat us. Several genres of donut movies – something for everyone.

Attack of the Killer Donuts

A chemical accident in a sleepy town turns ordinary donuts into bloodthirsty monsters. Unaware of the donuts’ danger, Johnny, Michelle and Howard sell them to unsuspecting customers. When the donuts start eating their victims, the only way the three friends can save their sleepy town is to track down the Killer Donuts down and destroy them. The final standoff is where it all began: Dandy Donuts.

Available on Amazon.

Transformers (2007)

A live-action version of the original Transformers TV series involves an alien race of robots called the Autobots and the Decepticon s crash landing on Earth where they battle for the ultimate power source: Energon.

When they are interrogated by the FBI, they eat all the donuts left in the interrogation room to prove their innocence.

Just goes to show we shouldn’t feel guilty for eating donuts and eating them all proves we’re not guilty of anything.

Available on Amazon.

Meet Bill

Meet Bill (Aaron Eckhart) – a doormat if ever there was one. He works a dead end job at his father-in law s bank and his wife Jess (Elizabeth Banks) is loathe to explain her friendship with the local news anchorman (Timothy Olyphant). Bill’s fate begins to change when he becomes mentor to a self-assured boy (Logan Lerman) who engineers Bill s recovery with the help of a cute lingerie sales girl named Lucy (Jessica Alba). Together, the trio confronts Bill’s hapless life with humor and energy while forcing him to capture his dream of being financially independent and self-confident. (Maybe as an owner of a donut franchise.)

In an attempt to train himself to hate junk food in order to lose weight, Ben Stiller’s character uses shock therapy as part of his diet regimen. “One bite won’t hurt ‘cha.” Yeah, right.

Turn your donut movie into a party.

Of course you should eat donuts while you watch a donut movie!

Go out and grab a dozen and think of themed sprinkles or toppings you can add that would match your movie.

(There’s a Transformers chocolate mold on Amazon.)

Or, pump up the fun factor by decorating your freakshake with a donut. (See below.) You can use any topping, but these contain donut, cotton candy and meringue cookie in matching colors. Drip sauce or icing down the side of the glass and add matching colored sprinkles, sugar pearls or nonpareils.
