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

Chris Miller based Pinto on himself as a Dartmouth sophomore, as "Pinto" had been his frat nickname, whereas he saw Boon (created initially by Harold Ramis) as an older and wiser version of himself. Dean Wormer was based (more or less) on Richard Nixon. "Flounder" was the frat nickname of a "Charles Laughton-like rich guy" from Tulsa, who was nothing like the film's Flounder, aside from the drinking. Bluto was a pastiche of several fellow frats of Miller's, mostly three nicknamed "Alby", "Seal", and "Bags". See more »
When the group go to sit in the booth seat at the Dexter Lake club, the order they sit changes on the cut from where they enter the booth to when they are sitting down. See more »
Mayor Carmine De Pasto:
If you want this year's homecoming parade in my town, you have to pay for it.
Dean Vernon Wormer:
Carmine, I don't think it's right that you should extort money from the college.
Mayor Carmine De Pasto:
Look, these parades you throw are very expensive. You using my police, my sanitation people, and my Oldsmobiles free of charge. So, if you mention extortion again, I'll have your legs broken.

At the very end of the credits there is an advertisement: "While in Hollywood, visit Universal Studios." The phrase "(Ask for Babs.)" is below that. See more »
you probably don't like teen sex comedies anyway. If you write more than 10 lines about this classic, you are taking it way too seriously. This is the King of Teen Sex Comedies, period. Anything that follows is/was a pretender or copycat. And I'll never understand why someone would spend so much time and space critiquing a film they don't like, from a genre they obviously don't appreciate. Virtually every actor plays his part realistically. I still get a huge kick out of Belushi's speech about the Germans bombing Pearl Harbor. Or "Do you mind if we dance with yo dates? Or "mine is bigger....my cucumber." Lots of classic lines. Just enjoy it!
