Hilariousness ensues in wacky farcical melee
1 October 2003 | by Movie_UberCriticSee all my reviews

One may imagine prior to viewing a National Lampoon's film what to expect. Gross out humor, nudity, sexual misunderstandings, and so on. 'Dorm Daze' has all of this, and so much more. Written(By Minnesota natives Patrick Casey and Worm Miller)in the style of a Shakespearen Farce, the jokes of the movie are primarily set up by misunderstandings amoungst a cast of college freshman. It is the day before Christmas break at Billingsly University, and with the RA on vacation, some of the students decide to indulge themselves in some otherwise inappropriate personal endeavours. The Character Stiles(Patrick Renna), orders a prostitute for his virgin brother Booker(Chris Owens), while at the same time a new foreign exchange student with the same name is scheduled to show up. As one could imagine, misunderstandings lead to wackiness, and wackiness leads to ridiculous hilarity. Standout performances by Patrick Renna, Tony Denman, Danielle Fischelle, Tatiyana Ali, and Boti Bliss(as the prostitute), make this film well worth seeing time and time again.

Some other critics have not been as pleased by this cornacopia of laughs as this critic. Why you may ask? Because other critics are stupid, and they obviously don't understand the concept of a farce. If you as a viewer laughed at 'Animal House', 'American Pie', or 'Van Wilder', then 'Dorm Daze' is your movie, and in my opinion the best of its kind since possibly 'Animal House' (Which most critics didn't like at the time either, morons). In fact the only problems i had with the movie were some post production flaws that didn't fit with the rest of the comedic mood. An undernourished and weak soundtrack, and some 'Zach Morris' looks straight out of 'Saved by the Bell' were the few problems this critic had, although they took nothing away from the ingenious dialouge and hilarious performances that the film embodies. If you haven't seen 'Dorm Daze' yet, make sure to do it after having gone to the bathroom, to make sure you don't pee yourself when you laugh your ass off. Movies this funny are a few and far between.
