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 »

The complete voice-over says: "Dear Mitch, If you're holding this letter, you already know. The house has been boarded up. The windows, the doors, everything. We're at the Comfort Inn. Room 112. I love you. Frank."
The actual writing on the note says: "Dear Mitch. The house has been boarded up. The windows, the doors, everything. There is absolutely no way to get inside. We're at the Comfort Inn. Room 112. Frank." See more »

Much like the tradition of the raunchy flicks of the 80s, Old School encompasses the age old tradition of tactless and tasteless film creation. Buy the oddity of the situation, this is one of those films I can tolerate. Mid-life malaise couldn't have been drawn better in the lives of Mitch, Frank and Beanie. Men who serve no purpose in society, especially to their significant others. But that's the significance of the frat house. No, it isn't about being drunk and hitting on 19-year-old girls, its about reaffirming your role in society and making the inner soul feel good and relaxed. So, say what you want about the random nudity and cussing, this film is a life affirming film for all men hitting their 30s.
