Jimmy Fallon got into a heated game of charades on Monday’s “Tonight Show,” as his guests Ewan McGregor and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy squared off against him and Charles Barkley.

McGregor and Tweedy were the first to go, but the team got off to a bad start when the Scottish actor held up his thumb and index and middle fingers to represent the number three. “Two words? Three words?” asked his partner. Tweedy defended his confusion, saying, “He is doing it the English way,” prompting McGregor to almost give him the finger. The phrase Tweedy had to guess was “Bride of Frankenstein,” but the two ran out of time.

Fallon was up next, and his phrase was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Barkley was not picking up on his clues, which involved a series of wild karate kicks, prompting the late-night host to ask him, “You’ve played charades before, have you not?” The former basketball star and current sports analyst guessed Karate Kid right at the buzzer even though it was established the phrase had four words. “Four words!” yelled Fallon, prompting Barkley to respond that Fallon’s clues were “awful.”

Tweedy was then very calm as he described “The Cat in the Hat,” and McGregor guessed the phrase with time to spare. Barkley wasn’t that good either as he tried to act out the clue for Vanilla Ice song, “Ice Ice Baby.” With the score 1 to 0, Fallon and McGregor went head-to-head during a “showdown” round over the phrase “Titanic.” Things got so heated one team even asked for an instant replay. So, who do you think ended up winning?
