Faber College has one frat house so disreputable it will take anyone. It has a second one full of white, anglo-saxon, rich young men who are so sanctimonious no one can stand them except Dean Wormer. The dean enlists the help of the second frat to get the boys of Delta House off campus. The dean's plan comes into play just before the homecoming parade to end all parades for all time. Written by

The "head" mounted on the hood of the Deathmobile is from the statue of Emil Faber, the school's founder. See more »
In the cafeteria scene when Bluto is filling his tray, the position of the food on the tray changes from shot to shot as he moves down the food line (esp. bananas). See more »
[Bluto has joined Mandy, Otter, Greg, Chip and Babs at their lunch table and is consuming his food with somewhat sloppy gusto]
Greg, can't you...
No, it's okay, just keep your hands and feet away from his mouth.

The classic frat comedy of all time. A simple story of college life for a bunch of delinquents who seek solace with a an endless supply of beer, toga parties and loads of young girls.
It doesn't matter that the Delta House (the home of said delinquents), continually fail to pass their exams, for them sex & booze is all what life is about.
The movie is a perfect vehicle for Saturday Night Live star, John Belushi, who is allowed to show off his considerable talent as the biggest sicko of the Delta bunch - check out his impression of a Zit!!
But he is well supported by Tom Hulce, and surprisingly Donald Sutherland as the hippy professor with wayout theories.
Able actor, John Vernon, plays the Principle of the college and often the butt of the Delta House: finding a horse in his office is a classic piece of farce!
All in all, the film hangs together very well with a good script and superb visual jokes. John Landis must have a wild college life himself when he made this.
