Snoop Dogg agreed to cameo in the film so he could play Huggy Bear in Starsky & Hutch (2004). Todd Phillips admitted to essentially bribing him, using his desire to play Huggy Bear to his advantage. "So when I went to him I said, 'I want you to do Huggy Bear,' he was really excited. And I said, 'Oh yeah, also will you do this little thing for me in Old School a little cameo?' So he kind of had to do it I think." See more »

Jerry, are you a statistics major or something?
Actually I am. Minoring in Hebrew science.
Well, I didn't know that. Because you didn't tell me. Now I look like a jackass.

I saw Old School yesterday night on a french channel completely by chance. I knew nothing about it. It's a wonderful movie. I hadn't laughed like this since years. The main characters are caricatures but hilarious (especially Franck the tank...), the story is completely stupid (but fantastic) and the parties these thirty year old men who don't want to grow up organize are contagious and push you to go back to university with a good beer... Some celebrities make successful appearances (Juliette Lewis, Sean William Scott...) playing completely deranged characters, adding energy and fun to this well rhythmic comedy.
Old School reminds me Fight Club for the notorious "Godfather" as famous in this high school as Tyler Durden and a lot of incredibly funny sequences of this movie would be adopted by Monty Python themselves.
And above all, Old Scholl spares us an horrible ending like : "Well, I was a child, making mistakes, but now I understand a lot of things, honey, and I want to go back with you, our house, kids, dogs, canaries and God knows what else...". This film remains faithful to its principles and THAT'S GREAT!!
What else can I say : see this movie and be in a good mood for the rest of the day; I'm gonna see it once more now.
Thank you Todd Phillips.
