3.0 out of 5 stars Another teen movie. 15th april 2004.
It's one of them teen movies, if you are into them sorts of movies this is perfect for you. I like some of them, and don't get me wrong this is pretty good but i have seen better. I always think well by looking at the box cover, and reading the reviews on it which i normally do, i thought by what it actually says it is funny i normally go for funny movies. I didn't laugh...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Movie,
4.0 out of 5 stars Silly, but an outrageous farce,
The trio: Mitch(Wilson), a dumped lawyer, Frank(Ferrell), a confused husband and Beanie(Vaughn) a raucous father, all decide to relive their glory days by starting a out-of-control "fraternity" in Mitch's home. Cauos ensues, and they get in trouble with the dean, who is planning to stop the raging party everyone is talking about. Of course audiences made this silly comedy a hit, and has fast become a popular party movie.
There are many memorable scenes in this movie, including the scene where Will Ferrell accidently shoots himself with a tranquilizar!
Ok, OLD SCHOOL has an ordinary premise, but the high energy and vast performances by the cast are highly recommended even for a single viewing.
4.0 out of 5 stars College Life without the Education,
If you enjoyed this funny comedy in theaters then "Old School" Unrated Edition is a recommended DVD purchase. Except for some slight nudity in the opening menu, there isn't much difference between the unrated and rated editions of "Old School". The movie is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen format. The DVD contains a fine picture quality with good sharpness. The 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS sound options are quite clear and often engaging. The DVD features an audio commentary by cast members and director Todd Phillips, deleted scenes, a hilarious "Inside the Actors Studio" spoof and a short behind-the-scenes featurette. Overall, "Old School" Unrated Edition scores a "B-".

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Predictable,
1.0 out of 5 stars Animal House/Reveng of the Nerds rip-off,
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars "I'M HERE FOR THE GANGBANG.",
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.
