WAY better than expected
23 August 2006 | by crash_davisSee all my reviews

I had really low expectations going into this film, but much to my surprise, the film is absolutely hilarious. A real throwback to classic films such as "Animal House" and "Stripes", as well as newer fare such as "Old School". Thankfully it's a solid "R" (nudity and drug use galore) which is welcome in these overly safe, PG-13 days. Definitely Broken Lizard's funniest film (better than SUPER TROOPERS and way, way, way better than the horrible DUKES OF HAZZARD). I can honestly say I haven't laughed this hard in quite a while at a film. Made me long for my long, lost college days. Will make you want to crack open a cold one after wards...
