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

Professor Jennings bites an apple while lecturing about good and evil in John Milton's "Paradise Lost." This is a deliberate gag reference to Eve's eating of the "forbidden fruit" from the Tree of Knowledge, a key event in "Paradise Lost," but the only thing lost is this gag on Jennings' students.

Kids, this is the one that started it all. Every college movie, every roadtrip movie, every snobs vs. slobs movie, every pitiful 'slacker' comedy ever made in the past owes a great debt to 'Animal House'. Although somewhat sophomoric and obviously shallow, there is a charm and a timelessness to this film. The late John Belushi absolutely chews up every scene he's in. This film is just a testament to his genius. This is also worth a rental to see a young Kevin Bacon get spanked. THANK YOU SIR! MAY I HAVE ANOTHER!
