When writer and future Oscar winner Julius J. Epstein first arrived in Hollywood in 1933, he was told to watch the making of this movie on the soundstage in order to get him acclimated to moviemaking and production techniques. See more »
College Humor is the perfect title for a silly, youth-oriented romantic comedy about a college football star whose girlfriend has fallen in love with a professor. Trust me, it sounds much more serious than it is.
The funniest part of the movie in my opinion was the production number that shows all the coeds coupling up and finding corners to "neck" on date night. Jack Oakie chases after his girl, Mary Kornman, repeatedly nodding his head, hoping to get a nod in return, but only getting a shake when she decides she's not in the mood. At the end of the song and dance, they wind up outside the professor housing. Bing Crosby stands by his open window and croons, unknowingly making Mary fall for him. Then, resigned to his fate, Jack looks at Mary and shakes his head. To his surprise, Mary grins and nods her head-it's go time! Sure, it's a little weird, but it's a little funny at the same time.
Much of this movie is dated for the simple reason that college coeds nowadays have different problems than winning a football game. College movies, and college life for that matter, are very raunchy, so the intended audience will be incredibly bored watching this one.
