Featuring rare and never before seen footage, this is the mind boggling story of The National Lampoon from its subversive and electrifying beginnings, to rebirth as an unlikely Hollywood heavyweight, and beyond. A humour empire like no other, the impact of the magazines irreverent, often shocking, sensibility was nothing short of seismic: this is an institution whose (drunk stoned brilliant) alumni left their fingerprints all over popular culture. Both insanely great and breathtakingly innovative, The National Lampoon created the foundation of modern comic sensibility by setting the bar in comedy impossibly high.

Very self serving
Very white, and very privileged. That describes pretty much everybody involved in this film, and therefore it can be assumed with National Lampoon. The film is somewhat entertaining but extremely self-serving. If you believe all the speakers, anyone involved with National Lampoon was one of the most intelligent, funny, and brilliant people in the world; they were are intellectual geniuses if you believe this film. The writers and creators of National Lampoon believed themselves to be very anti-establishment, and that they were. However, they were just a part of a different establishment. The inside information is somewhat interesting in the early part of the film, however even at 98 minutes it begins to drag on.
