Trivia

One of two 1982 "National Lampoon" movies, the other was Movie Madness (1982). But Class Reunion (1982) is generally considered the second "National Lampoon" movie. However, it's the third if one counts Movie Madness (1982) which was shot in 1981, but its release was delayed, having a limited release in 1982 prior to "Class Reunion", and was not launched widely until 1983. Class Reunion (1982) was the second "National Lampoon" picture that got a major release after Animal House (1978). See more »

A highly underrated film...
18 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

National Lampoon's Class Reunion is a classic comedy film from the early 80's which combines unique characters, lots of laughs, and some great music from Chuck Berry. When Walter Bailor is absolutely humiliated by his classmates at their high school graduation he seizes the opportunity to get his revenge at his class reunion. One by one he stalks his classmates who include an innocent blind girl, a horny fat guy, the high school beauty, the king of all preps and even the ugly old lunch lady who served up slops to all the kids during highschool. This film has a sort of scary element in it and it has a few brief scenes of sexuality so I wouldn't recommend it for young children but it's a great movie for teens. If you are looking for a movie with a beautiful score, complex characters or killer special effects you might not love Class Reunion. If you want to sit down for 90 minutes and have some great laughs and a lot of fun (and who doesn't) then this movie should be on your movies to see list. ++
