National Lampoon's Animal House
National Lampoon's Animal House ★★★½ Animal House 1978 (R)
Classic Belushi vehicle running amuck. Set in 1962 and responsible for launching Otis Day and the Knights and defining cinematic food fights. Every college tradition from fraternity rush week to the homecoming pageant is irreverently and relentlessly mocked in this wild comedy about Delta House, a fraternity on the edge. Climaxes with the homecoming parade from hell. Sophomoric, but very funny, with a host of young stars who went on to more serious work. Remember: “Knowledge is good.” 109m/C VHS, DVD, UMD, HD DVD .
