National Lampoon’s Animal House


One line review: Crude humor, pointless scenes, and all around an empty movie.

Movie Title: National Lampoon’s Animal House

Actors: Tom Hulce, Stephen Furst, Mark Metcalf, Mary Louise Weller, Martha Smith, James Daughton, Kevin Bacon, John Belushi, Douglas Kenney, Chris Miller

Director: John Landis

Year: 1979

Genre: Comedy

Method of Viewing: DVD

Location of Viewing: Home

Viewing with: No One

Rotten Tomatoes: 90% – The talents of director John Landis and Saturday Night Live’s irrepressible John Belushi conspired to create a rambunctious, subversive college comedy that continues to resonate.

My rating: *

My assessment (the first 101 words at least): Animal House is a pretty basic film with a lot of one liners and gross out humor. I could notfind anything redeemable about this movie that would make me ever want to watch it again. Maybe I could understand if you watched this as a teenager and the concept of a boobie in a film was incredible then this movie could hold some nostalgic value. I did not enjoy watching this movie, did not laugh at any of the jokes, and I have no intentions of watching any of it’s sequels. Just a waste of time and energy all around.
