National Lampoon's ANIMAL HOUSE has the reputation for setting the bar for both party hard fraternities and movies about partying hard.  Set in 1962, on the campus of Faber College in Faber, PA., the film focuses on the antics of the imaginatively mischievous Delta fraternity as they battle rejection from the institutionalized and rigid social order imposed by a repressive Dean and overachieving rival fraternity.

When Dean Wormer decides that Faber College is no place for the unsophisticated antics of the Deltas, he enlists the services of the militant like Omegas to drum up violations that would expel the Deltas for good. The stage is set for a comical showdown, which ends up with some of the most memorable comedic moments in movie history.

Directed by John Landis and starring John Belushi, Tom Hulce and John Vernon as Dean Wormer, ANIMAL HOUSE is a classic crowd pleaser.

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

It’s telling that Pixar guru John Lasseter counts Japanese Studio Ghibli master Hayao Miyazaki as his key influence.  If animation in the United States ever has a chance to be something more than instantly devalued as a “children’s” medium, it’s in their hands.

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
