National Lampoon's Animal House
Surprisingly coherent and polished piece of work, considering it's from the writers of the National Lampoon and from the director of Kentucky Fried Movie; not as raunchy as you might expect, held in check perhaps by the tighter morals of the 1962 period setting, and not as funny either. This frat-house comedy has good rapport with the lowbrow crowd, a rapport it maintains through the constant congratulations and rewards it hands out to its undeserving goof-off characters. With John Belushi, Tim Matheson; directed by John Landis. 1978.
