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

Producer Ivan Reitman's original choices for the roles of Boon and Otter were Bill Murray and Chevy Chase. However, John Landis did not think Chase was right for the part, and convinced him to star in Foul Play (1978) instead, by telling him that it was an ensemble film. The role went to Tim Matheson, who later starred with Chase in Fletch (1985). Chase has said that he regrets not doing the film. See more »
In the classroom, during the lecture on Milton, Jennings sloppily writes "Satan" on the blackboard. In a subsequent shot, "Satan" is written much more neatly and legible. The T also changes position. See more »
The first film made by National Lampoon magazine, it's a film i've wanted to see for a long time. However, having finally seen it, it's something of a disappointment. Basically, it's the story of a fraternity house, Delta House, at a college in America and it's inhabitant's misadventures. Although it's easy to criticise, this was the first movie of it's kind, paving the way for many other similar films, such as the Porky's trilogy. John Belushi is, as always, brilliant and the rest of the cast acquit themselves admirably, but the problem is the script is just too light. An OK film, but just OK.
