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

Sunny Johnson is listed in the credits as "Otter's Co-Ed". She does not appear in the movie, however, as her scene was cut (along with John Landis) due to time constraints. See more »

Greg, can't you...
No, it's okay, just keep your hands and feet away from his mouth.

Late in the movie, Boone goes into Katy's living room. She has just finished sleeping with Professor Jennings. After Boone figures out what's going on and leaves, Professor Jennings walks out of the bedroom and into the kitchen, opens a cabinet, and reaches for something on a high shelf. In the theater version, he is bare-butt naked. In the TV version, he's wearing pants. See more »
Perhaps it is the greatest movie (comedy) of all time, some could argue that point. However, I believe that it is the greatest comedy movie that will ever be made. This is a truly "funny" movie. The wonderful, colorful writing is brought to life by a wonderful cast. In turn, the incredible talent of the cast is tapped to the fullest extent by John Landis' superb comedic genius. The movie is the greatest because it the original. This statement does seem incredibly cliche, and I hear it use about many movies today. But "Animal House" is the real deal. This true masterpiece didn't rely to heavily on sight gags, shock value, plain old jokes, or good old slap stick. Instead, this movie masterfully combined the many different aspects of comedy into one coherent film. Although all writers and directors borrow from this classic film, none will ever top the achievement of Douglas Kenney, Harold Ramis, and John Landis.
