Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Forced to watch promos Sept. 1 2003
Format:DVD
Everyone else seemed to cover the content of the DVD, but I'd just like to rant about a new device that Universal has forced on the DVD buying public where everytime you want to view the disc you have to sit through several promos for upcoming releases. It took about 8 minutes before the main menu would come up and, at least my player would not allow me to forward to the menu earlier promting the warning "Not Permitted" when I would try. But thankfully, I only rented this, so I'm only slightly bitter.:-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Say no to Universal's FORCED spam on DVDs Feb. 4 2004
By BBQ
Format:DVD
Thanks to the other reviews here I now know not to buy this DVD. Forcing you to watch a ton of commercials every single time you put the disc in your player is apalling. Stay away from Universal's DVDs unless they knock it off. If you're the type of person who loves having an inbox full of spam, you should enjoy this DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Double Secret Probation Edition = RIPOFF Feb. 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I own the original release on dvd. I purchased the new release Double Secret Probation under the false pretenses that there was a difference. The few bonus features and lack of quality thereof leave this DVD lacking.
Good job hollywood .. and you wonder why everyones stealing movies?

5.0 out of 5 stars I think I found the way June 15 2004
Format:DVD
Through experimentation, I think I found a good way to pass the commercials quickly: did anyone ever think of the "MENU" key? It works. If it doesn't on some, then dang it all.

Format:DVD
First off, I love Animal House. There is no reason for me to even explain the movie. Animal House and the Blues Brothers are the best Landis/Belushi movies of all time. There are some special features such as a "Where are they now" featurette featuring many of the original cast (except Belushi of course). But, even those features and this excellent movie cannot save this DVD from a one-star rating.
As others have stated, not being able to skip the adds at the beginning of the DVD is a poor marketing decision. They did the same with American Wedding, but at least, I can hit stop on my DVD player to stop the DVD, whereas with Animal House, I have to turn off my DVD player. Very poor.
I have already written to Universal Studios about my displeasure with their decision for both Animal House and American Wedding and have informed them that unless they change their tactics, I refuse to purchase another Universal DVD release and that hundreds of other purchasers feel the same, based on reviews at Amazon.com.
Stay away from this if you absolutely feel that not being able to skip the adds is wrong. Otherwise, be prepared to sit through 5+ minutes of commercials for other Universal movies. Your best bet is to go make some popcorn and come back. At that point, it should be done and then you can enjoy this excellent, funny parody of life in a frat house in the late 60s.
Toga! Toga! Toga!

1.0 out of 5 stars Say no to forced ads Jan. 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
At the start of the DVD, the watcher is forced to sit through 5 minutes of ads; as others have mentioned, this is really bothersome. I'd be willing to pay more for this DVD if there was an ad-free version available. The bonus features are so-so...nothing spectacular.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory Previews; Write to Universal June 11 2004
Format:DVD
If you want to see reviews of the movie, go to [...] If you want a review of this particular DVD version, read on.
By putting the mandatory (you can only fast forward - and many dvd players only fast forward at one speed) previews in the beginning of the Animal House disk, Universal has lost a heavy DVD purchaser.
When I first realized the previews were of this nature, I immediately wrote to Universal:
Mr. Craig Kornblau
President of Universal Studios Home Video and Executive Vice President/General Manager, Universal Music & Video Distribution
70 Universal City Plaza
Universal City, CA 91608
My main points were:
- "One of the reasons I purchase DVDs instead of VHS tapes is that I greatly value the time-saving feature of skipping chapters and going directly to the title menu when I desire. Essentially, I paid the extra money for a DVD when all that was provided was a VHS tape that can play in my DVD player."
- "Even though I am an avid DVD purchaser, this is the only time I have ever encountered a DVD that so infuriated me. If this matter is not fixed, I will never purchase another DVD released by Universal again, and advise my friends to do the same."
Please write to Univeral. I received a letter in the mail that said their "plan for future relases is to include the ability to bypass trailers by selecting 'Main Menu.'" It doesn't help those of us who purchased this DVD, though.
P.S. About the menu button: the PS2 doesn't have one, and selecting "menu" from the select button's menu does not work.

ANIMAL HOUSE is one of the funniest, most subversive comedies ever made! It takes the college system apart, turning it into a playground for the outcasts on campus. Read more
