College life in the 1960's and the students of the worst
house on campus are on double secret probation because the
Dean hates their antisocial behaviour. One
more black mark against them and they will all be expelled.
So, what better time to organise a Toga party with loads of
underage drinking and illegal drugs?...
Lampoon's Animal House is the father of all college life
movies - all films of a similar genre (that includes American
Pie) borrow heavily from this classic comedy. But, sadly
this has aged rather badly. There are racist and sexist scenes
which will have you sucking in breath sharply, and certainly
wouldn't be tolerated in a movie made today.
is the movie that made John Belushi a star (briefly until
his premature death), and there are plenty of other familiar
faces including a young Kevin Bacon, Donald Sutherland, Karen
Allen (who played Marion in Raiders of the Lost Ark)
and Stephen Furst (Babylon 5).
extras are fairly impressive too. There are two lengthy documentaries.
One entitled Where Are They Now?: A Delta Alumni Update
which goes in search of the characters from the movie to see
what they are up to at the present time. I originally thought
this was a stupid idea, but it actually works quite well,
and seems fairly original. It's really weird seeing these
actors again after all this time pretending to still be the
characters from the movie.
extras include a music video. Universal animated anecdotes
and the original theatrical trailer.
a bad collection at all it's just a shame that the movie has
aged so poorly.
