Director: John Landis. Runtime: 109. Actors: Tim Matheson Tom Hulce Karen Allen John Belushi Stephen Furst Mark Metcalf.
This is one of those movies that works for all the wrong reasons--disgusting, lowbrow, base humor that we are all far too sophisticated to find amusing. So, just don't tell anyone you still think it's a riot to watch John Belushi as the brutish Bluto slurp Jell-O or terrorize his less-aggressive fellow students. This crude parody of college life in the '60s spawned many imitations, but none could match the fresh-faced talent or bad taste of this huge box office success. (Remember all those toga parties in the '80s?) The first of the National Lampoon movies, this was originally released as National Lampoon's Animal House. Keep an eye out for a very young Kevin Bacon in his first credited screen appearance. --Rochelle O'Gorman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This was a gift for a friend with whom I had seen the film when it came out. It has lost none of its humour, and so I bought a copy for myself.Published 4 months ago by Jim Saxman
This is a cult movie, full of humour. John Belushi fans should add this one to their collection.Published 11 months ago by Scarberian
