About the Movie

One of the most popular movie comedies of all time is also the film that made John Belushi a star. This raunchy, screwball comedy, directed with madcap zest by John Landis, offers a relentless spoof of 1960's college life by following the hilarious adventures of the Delta fraternity. In addition to Belushi as "Bluto" Blutarsky, the outstanding cast includes Tim Matheson, Tom Hulce, Stephen "Flounder" Furst, Karen Allen, Donald Sutherland, Peter Riegert and Kevin Bacon, along with Otis Day and the Knights with their show-stopping performance of "Shout."

A Classic!!

Animal House is a classic. IT should be mandatory viewing

this is the funniest movie of all time

this movie exceeds expectations of all types. It shows true talent and displays comedy thought impossible. It broke the barrier between Charlie Chaplin comedy and just plain hilarious. A deserving 5 stars!

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to through life, son.

iTunes had made up for putting Nothing But Trouble on their list by adding this. What can be said that hasn't already been said? One of the funniest movies ever made. Buy it. No, seriously, buy it. It's that super-awesome.
