People complain that this is a rip-off of Animal House. It isn't. It is even worse. It is a rip-off of Revenge of the Nerds. Only it doesn't have the wit, charm or likeable characters.
My teenage kids watched this movie on the airplane during a family vacation. They saw I was renting the DVD and told me it was a crappy movie. I didn't believe them. I thought that because they were young, maybe they just didn't get it. Maybe they couldn't relate to some middle aged men trying to recapture some of their youth. Or maybe the jokes were just too mature or referenced too much of the seventies. But, they were right. It has nothing to do with character study at all. It is just a bunch of dumb, juvenile jokes that even teenagers don't think is funny.
This movie starts off promising, and there are some funny moments in the first half. But, after that, it just gets tiresome and boring. The last half is pulled right out of Revenge of the Nerds, where the frat house has to go through a number of trials to keep their house. The trials are so contrived and uninteresting that it is just excrutiating to watch.
I didn't think that the DVD extras were worth getting. How good can deleted scenes of a bad movie be?
I saw the "unrated" version, expecting some racy material. I don't know what was added, but it must have been a very tame movie in the theaters. This "unrated" version is just barely R. Will Ferrell's butt, a few quick glimpses of breasts and a suggested head job that really didn't happen. Airplane! was racier than this.

This looked like the last movie I would ever get, not being particularly into farces and screwball comedy. But
if Vince Vaughn ("Swingers", "Made") is in it, then I probably will give it a look. "Old School" fulfilled Vaughn's comic promise, but it is ensemble and great.
It starts out with just the right touch when Luke Wilson returns home and finds sexy girlfriend Juliette Lewis expecting not him but her "Internet friends," who are coming over "for the gangbang." Makes you want to do a Google search for "single girls looking for group sex."
This is an up-dated "Animal House", maybe better. Luke's post-Juliette recovery includes moving into a house next to the college, and when it looks like he cannot stay due to school regulations, they form a fraternity. Luke is a lawyer and his legal skills keep them above the dean's attempts to disband them as part of a childhood revenge.
Vince gives us great lines like, "What do you think, instead of spending time with my wife I'd rather hang out with 19-year old girls?"
USC grad Will Ferrell, who once tried out for the Trojans as a punter, may carry this film through sheer craziness. There is little message, just laughs. It has some mature themes, but despite Juliette's sexual wanderings is basically tame.
In the end, Juliette is still into swinging, when she invites Will to her next sexfest.

The boys that brought us "Road Trip" are back again with "Old School" and it's pretty much what you'd think it would be.
THE STORY:
Mitch (Luke Wilson), Frank (Will Ferrell) and Beanie (Vince Vaughn) are a bunch of 30-something guys who decide to open up a frat house near their old college campus and pretty much get into all the cliché frat things to some pretty hilarious results. Among other things they let in just about EVERYBODY (including an old homeless Vet) into the frat and they take on the crooked college Dean who holds a grudge against them from their old college days.
THE COOL THINGS:
Overall, the film is what you'd expect. It's a "dumb" comedy and the boys get themselves into some pretty hilarious fixes. Nothing sophisticated here which is good. We've got streaking, we've got the sophomoric humor and that's about it.
THE NOT-SO-COOL THINGS:
Well, given that it's a "dumb" comedy as you'd expect, some things are pretty funny and then again, some things aren't all that funny.
BEST SCENES:
1. The BJ School
2. The Tranquilizer Dart
3. The "Exam" Scene
4. The KY Wrestling scene
THE DVD EXTRAS:
As standard for these new DVDs, you've got a truckload of extras. Like the film itself, some of them are hilarious and some of them aren't.
1. "From the Cutting Room Floor" - 8 deleted scenes
2. "Old School Orientation" - 13 minute film synopsis featurette
3. "Inside the Actors Studio Spoof" - 21 minute spoof of a "serious" talk show segment with the main cast and directors, complete with overly dramatic host and canned audience reactions. It got old after like 4 minutes...
4. "Outtakes & Bloopers" - 5 minute montage
5. Commentary Track
6.

Mitch, Beanie, and Frank are three guys reclaiming the good ole days before they settled into marriage, long-term relationships and careers. In the beginning of the movie, Mitch comes home and finds that his girlfriend Heidi is into ganbanging. Frank gets married but finds that he can't stay married because he feels that he is losing himself and goes out of control at the Mitchapalooza party. Beanie is married with children and is doing what he can to help his friend Mitch get out of his funk. They form a fraternity with some of the guys that are considered not popular enough. Then in comes the dean who can't stand the sight of them. He was picked on by them and plots revenge against them. He uses the SGA president and pre-law student to deny the fraternity their charter.
This movie is hilarious. Big boy dropped his attached concrete in the manhole and fell. That has got to hurt! Seeing Will Ferrell naked was even hilarious. He was the lone streaker until he was busted by his wife while she was driving her friends.
This movie was funny and watching it the second time is even more funny!
