National Lampoon’s Animal House (1979)

The newest pledges Pinto and Flounder first visit the colleges’ sophisticated fraternity, The Omegas, but find the Delta House, the worst but most fun fraternity at Faber College much more interesting. Bluto Blutarsky (Belushi) and his pals have fun every night drinking, partying and having sex. But when Dean Wormer decides to put the frat under “Double Secret Probation”, the Deltas rebel and have a Toga Party! But unfortunately their wild antics get them suspended, but that doesn’t stop them from getting even by making a float and crashing the parade. The slapstick is hilariously funny, the characters are lovable and the music is infectious. This is how a screw-ball comedy about college life in the early 60′s should be! Starring John Belushi, Tom Hulce, Stephen Furst, Mark Metcalf, Kevin Bacon, Karen Allen, Tim Matheson, Peter Riegert 7/10
