Storyline

A suspicious hunchback is spying through a scope on the UCLA campus from a tower which he makes his home out of, when his eye catches a beautiful girl. He lustfully keeps his eye on her until he sees her being violently pushed away while trying to stop a guy from beating up her boyfriend. This makes the hunchback mad and he makes himself known by swinging from a rope Tarzan style onto the campus and attacks the man who pushed the girl away. The hunchback is later taken into custody by campus officials and is later examined by the campus professors, Cathy, the beautiful girl, and Alex, her boyfriend. While on a ride back to the campus, the hunchback escapes the police car and is being chased by Alex, Cathy, and one of the professors riding along with them, Dr. Webster. He leads the trio to his tower and shows them the whole place. Dr. Webster then feels that it's best for him to stay there and he, along with Cathy, asks Alex to stay with the hunchback. After a long argument, Alex ... Written by Anonymous

Big Man On Campus is one of the funniest movies ever made in the 80's
30 January 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Big Man On Campus is one of the funniest movies ever made in the 80's. I remember when I first saw it along with my family in 1992 that I loved it. Now when I talked with a couple of my friends at school about it, they've seen it too. Now, after years of not watching it and going crazy, I finally got a chance to watch it again with my church youth. Some thought it was funny while others thought that it was crude, and I have to agree on some parts especially when Tom Skerrit talks about Cathy being Bob's way of masturbating or something like that. Plus, my church youth and I will never (at least me and a couple of others) forget the part when Bob was naming body parts to Diane Gerard and asked what part was his private and she said "oh, boy." Well, Bob thought "Oh, boy," was the name and started saying "oh, boy," over. That was so hilarious. If you haven't seen this movie, then you don't know what you are missing.
