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 actors, who played the Deltas, harassed the actors who played the Omegas off-screen as well, to keep up the feelings of animosity between their characters. Mark Metcalf changed his hotel room to the one above Bruce McGill's, where the Delta actors partied every night, so his anger at their noise would help him get into character. See more »
When the band is marching down the alley at the end of the film, the "brick wall" that they all run into repeatedly bounces back and forth as it is touched. See more »
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!
