Faber College has one frat house so disreputable it will take anyone. It has a second one full of white, anglo-saxon, rich young men who are so sanctimonious no one can stand them except Dean Wormer. The dean enlists the help of the second frat to get the boys of Delta House off campus. The dean's plan comes into play just before the homecoming parade to end all parades for all time.Written by

In 1974, National Lampoon Magazine published a parody called "National Lampoon's 1964 High School Yearbook". While the Yearbook's continuity is unrelated to "Animal House", a senior named Larry Kroger is the owner of the reader's copy of the Yearbook, and Mr. Vernon Wormer is listed as the school's gym teacher and civics instructor. Also, the dead coed in "Animal House" is named Fawn Liebowitz; Faun Rosenberg was another senior featured in the Yearbook. See more »
At the very beginning of the shot where Boon's golf ball smashes through Dean Wormer's window, a hand gripping a slingshot-like device is visible firing the ball. See more »
I want you to fix Pinto up, but it's got to be a very special girl.
Look, you don't have to...
Now, she should be good-looking, but we're willing to trade looks for a certain... morally casual attitude.
You mean you want someone he can screw on the first date.
Well put. You see, Pinto's never been laid.
What'd I say?

At the very end of the credits there is an advertisement: "While in Hollywood, visit Universal Studios." The phrase "(Ask for Babs.)" is below that. See more »

If you have only seen this movie on TV, you have not really seen this movie. One of the best movie experiences of my life was seeing this movie in the theater with a full house of college students. I have never heard an audience laugh so hard, and I was laughing with them. That experience can never be recaptured. I don't know why this movie doesn't make the midnight movie tour in college towns. That way it might have some of the same impact. Also when it came out in 1978 it is hard to explain how big John Belushi was unless you were there and saw it first hand. It's still funny on the small screen, but only if you see it uncut. Never watch it on a network, they cut out most of the jokes!
