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.
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.
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

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!
Three thirtysomething buddies (Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell) decide to revitalize their lives by cranking up a college fraternity whose members are not required to be students at the local university. Of course, such a blasphemous act draws the ire of the college's administrators (insert "Animal House" plot here), and accordingly, the fledgling frat must do battle with the corrupt, unscrupulous establishment. Sure, this ground's been covered before in countless other movies, but OLD SCHOOL adds its own loony spin of mayhem--from concrete blocks tied to fragile appendages, to eye-opening mud wrestling.
While OLD SCHOOL's cast, from top to bottom, is excellent, Will Ferrell dominates this film (much like Dangerfield in "Caddyshack," or Belushi in "Animal House"). As Frank "the Tank" Ricard, a newlywed with a party animal mentality, Ferrell's over-the-top antics are bust-a-gut, roll-on-the-floor funny. Ferrell, whether he's streaking or performing a gymnastics floor exercise, carries this film like a fullback with a football.
If in fact we equate entertainment with escapism (which I do), OLD SCHOOL delightfully fits the bill. You'll forget the problems of the day with this puppy, and you'll have fun in the process.
