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 original version of the movie was 175 minutes long. Among the scenes deleted were more with Bluto, including a scene where a dishwasher (played by John Landis) tries to stop him from eating all the food and gets pulled across the table and thrown on the floor while Bluto says, "You don't fuck with the eagles unless you know how to fly" and an extended version of the scene where Bluto pours mustard on himself and starts singing "I Am the Mustard Man."

If you have only seen this movie on TV, you have not really seen this movie. One of the best movie experiences of my life was seeing this movie in the theater with a full house of college students. I have never heard an audience laugh so hard, and I was laughing with them. That experience can never be recaptured. I don't know why this movie doesn't make the midnight movie tour in college towns. That way it might have some of the same impact. Also when it came out in 1978 it is hard to explain how big John Belushi was unless you were there and saw it first hand. It's still funny on the small screen, but only if you see it uncut. Never watch it on a network, they cut out most of the jokes!
