It's been 10 years since Lizzie Borden High School's class of '72 graduated, and the preppies, the hippies and the in-crowd has returned to reminisce over good times past. But classmate Walter Baylor has returned too with a vengeance.
A frat house notorious for parties is turned into a co-ed residence for four freshmen under the supervision of a graduate student and her occasional boyfriend, a party animal from the closed fraternity.
Due to the lack of men after the Civil War, a small western town allows a bachelorette with ulterior motives to save a horse thief from the gallows by marrying him. They must deal with his old gang, the Sheriff, the bank, and each other.
If you know who thought this was a sound idea, please slap them for me
Years after the events of Animal House, this shows us the fates of the people in it. With the film itself being essentially pointless other than saluting meaningless, destructive, crude, obnoxious, noisy behavior and partying, this is an utterly unnecessary addition that just further highlights how much it did not need to be made, and almost has you wondering why the original movie was, too. I didn't care for or about a single one of these characters(and they remain nasty and unappealing in this) in the flick(I could just barely tell them apart), and this is nothing but expanding on the "what happened to" freeze frame throwaway gag near the end... why was this mockumentary made? It features clips from it, and is notable only in their managing to track down all these actors. There's a Woody Allen impersonation in this(intentional or otherwise), and the material is just plain weird. There's something about pregnant women's urine, my brain blacked out. Nearly all of the jokes are unfunny, at best, they're silly. Well, the born-again Christian stuff with Bacon made me smile. This is 21 and a half minutes sans credits, and about 23 with. There are mature themes and language in this. I recommend this to people who must watch anything connected to the '78 piece. 5/10
