*** out of ****    John Belushi is the heart and soul of "Animal House", the John Landis helmed comedy picture that single-handedly re-invented old genre conventions and in the process created new ones. Ask anyone about the film, and they will mention - or rather quote - what are considered some of the great SNL comic's finest on-screen moments. Indeed they are. Belushi, working with a film and a script that seem almost irredeemably simplistic at first sight, brings the material …

Delta's dirty dump doesn't discriminate the D- or dumber
College, the free market of ideas or all day long drinking and fornicating for semester's at a time.  If you look at the popular and "preferred" fraternities on campus, you'd swear it was an indoctrination center to be stripped of your individual tastes and politics and the courage of your convictions by the more normal looking of the bunch.  Looking at the more slovenly and decrept Delta House, you'd swear it was the latter where endless kegs of beer and debauchery …

I love the movie "Animal House"!!!  It brings me back to my college days.  I took my girlfriend (now my wife of over 30 yrs.) to see a new movie that had allot of hype, which now I can't even remember the name of.  As we were entering the theater we were told that we were going to see a second movie for free and be asked to comment on it, of course being poor college students we were thrilled to see a movie for free.  Well, when we came out of the theater our sides …

Ably directed by John Landis with a talented ensemble cast in which John Belushi (John "Bluto" Blutarsky) generates especially inspired mayhem, Animal House is within a tradition of earlier comedies, both on stage (dating back to ancient Greece) and on film (notably those directed by Preston Sturges), in which Irresponsible Youth and Civilized Society are in direct and …

Since the version that I just watched DOES NOT have any excessive commercials or a Where Are They Now segment, I feel more focused to comment on the movie alone. Sometimes it pays to stick with the original format instead of an upgraded edition. Anyway, many other reviewers are drifting off the deep end by commenting on the commercials excessively. Stick to the meat and potatoes guys.Anyway, this is a cult classic. Pete Riegert, John Belushi, and Tim Matheson give grade A performances. Oh what great …
