Storyline

Pondo Sinatra is a college boy with a problem: women will have nothing to do with him. It's not that he was raised on a chicken farm and, literally, came to school on the back of a turnip truck. It's not that he is a virgin and jinxed, and every move he makes around a woman backfires. The problem is that god and heaven have set themselves against Pondo loosing his virginity. That is until Pondo discovers the secret formula to the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world and becomes....... "The Party Animal"! Written by Ernest B. <ernest@bellsouth.net>

This is the party film that made all of my friends want to go to college
8 July 2002 | by (Wolfville, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

During the glory days of the 1980's and the Beta machine there was but one raunchy comedy that stood above the others, that comedy would be the Party Animal staring Matthew Causey. This is the party film that made all of my friends want to go to college. The movie is fast paced, shot in documentry style recalling the life of Pondo Sinatra and his ill-fated quest for college women. Pondo, as played by Causey, is slimy, but yet lovable. Good support comes from his friends Studly and Elbow, the Janitor. Another thing to add is that the soundtrack to this movie is simply awesome!! The music of the Buzzcocks fits all of Pondo's misfortunes. I have also heard that Matthew Causey is a Professor at a university somewhere and does not take well to any mention of this film. Too bad, it would be great to see someone like Anchor Bay snap up the rights to this classic and put it out on DVD, complete with a commentary from Causey..AKA Pondo Sinatra and other goodies.
