There’s no double secret rule that you have to like this movie, but you probably will. I feel like most college party movies or teen movies like American Pie, look to this movie for inspiration. The boys of Delta house crack me up with their antics, they throw great parties and just know how to have a good time. Some notable scenes are the terrible prank they pull to pick up girls at the Girl’s academy by pretending to be engaged to a girl who had died in a kiln accident, the Homecoming Parade scene and the scene with shooting the horse in the Dean’s office. This movie makes me miss John Belushi and his crazy eyebrows and I have to give props to Donald Sutherland being the creepiest college professor ever. This film may not be the perfect comedy, but it’s one of the most important ones. This film is best watched while wearing a toga.
