This is one of those movies that works for all the wrong reasons--disgusting, lowbrow, base humor that we are all far too sophisticated to find amusing. So, just don't tell anyone you still think it's a riot to watch John Belushi as the brutish Bluto slurp Jell-O or terrorize his less-aggressive fellow students. This crude parody of college life in the '60s spawned many imitations, but none could match the fresh-faced talent or bad taste of this huge box office success. (Remember all those toga parties in the '80s?) The first of the National Lampoon movies, this was originally released as National Lampoon's Animal House. Keep an eye out for a very young Kevin Bacon in his first credited screen appearance. --Rochelle O'Gorman , Amazon

Video Annotation from Amazon
Budget estimate $3 million. Color by Technicolor. Released theatrically in the USA July 1978. "Animal House," which was shot in only 35 days on location in Oregon, was allegedly based on the college experiences of National Lampoon writer Chris Miller. This was comedian/actor John Belushi's first starring role in a feature film. He was already well-known as one of the "Not Ready for Prime-Time Players" on TV's "Saturday Night Live." The film helped launch the careers of director Landis, screenwriter Harold Ramis, and producer Ivan Reitman, as well as its cast of relative newcomers, including Belushi, Tim Matheson, Tom Hulce, Karen Allen, Kevin Bacon, and Peter Riegert. ABC aired a short-lived television series in the spring of 1979 based on "Animal House," entitled "Delta House." The series was produced by the team responsible for the movie. Reprising their film roles were John Vernon, Stephen Furst, Bruce McGill, and James Widdoes, with the other parts recast. A new female character, "The Bombshell," was played by then-unknown Michelle Pfeiffer. Also looking to capitalize on "Animal House"-mania, NBC and CBS each produced their own "Animal House" rip-offs, "Brothers and Sisters" and "Co-Ed Fever." Rated BBFC AA by the British Board of Film Classification.
