Plot Summary

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.

Quotes John Landis, Himself: There's a time in everyone's life, and its really between 17 and 22, when you talk to people in their middle age, they always talk about their high school or their college experience as the quote unquote best years of their lives. And I'm thinkin' why? And *ultimately* its because when you're 17-18, you were expected to function as an adult , but you're a baby. Have you ever gone to a college campus? Those kids are babies; but, they're adults. So, there's this wonderful freedom, sense of adventure. We can do anything we want! We're college students! And that's really how the whole thing started.
