In the new comedy, "Walk of Shame," after a decadent night on the town, local news anchor Meghan Miles (Elizabeth Banks) finds herself without her car, money, or phone, stranded in a shady part of town, and inconveniently wearing a skintight dress and high heels.

If she'd just absorbed these lessons from similar movies, she'd have been home in half the time. (Moviefone does not guarantee these tips will get you home, especially if you are being hunted by the mafia, drug dealers, or corrupt cops -- or forced to drive cross-country with Zach Galifianakis.)
