20 Years of Alec Baldwin ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ Parodies

Glengarry Glen Ross first hit movies theaters 20 years ago today, bringing David Mamet’s play about the desperate measures salesmen will take when their jobs are on the line to the big screen. The most enduring part of the film is undoubtedly Alec Baldwin’s “Always Be Closing” speech. The monologue wasn’t even in Mamet’s original play, but since the film came out, the speech has become synonymous with Glengarry Glen Ross, spawning countless parodies. To mark the film’s 20th anniversary, we’ve rounded up the best ones.

See the rest of our favorite Glengarry parodies.
