Most Hilarious National Lampoon Film Ever!!!, 16 March 2015
Author: shominy-491-652355 from United States

We just saw this movie and laughed and laughed and laughed from the very beginning 'til the very end! This is absolutely the funniest National Lampoon movie ever! Not only is the film's premise hilarious, but the dialogue (esp. between Chris Owen and Will Friedle) is absolutely a riot! This film isn't crude or gross like so many films today - it relies on real comedic situations for huge laughs! Louise Lasser and Renee Taylor were excellent, too! (BTW, the old, scratchy silent movie the ladies show the young men in their mansion's theater room is beyond hysterical!) The editing is perfect - not a dull moment in this movie! We are definitely buying this DVD!
