This film has an atmosphere that immediately drew me in when I first saw it, and has kept me there ever since. I watch this very rarely, so when I next watch it, the atmosphere is still there. All the characters are pitch-perfect, and Belushi is excellent. 5/5 - One of the best films of all time.
Not sure what to say about this film. Great nudity?
Great ensemble performance. This was back in the good old days, where a comedy could be made without massive corporate sponsorship. It's gotten so bad with comedies these days that the corporate sponsor is part of the plot (Horrible Bosses).
The grandfather of raunchy college slapstick comedies still stands the test of time. Nobody had presence like John Belushi and the rest of this cast are just having fun with the material. One funny ass film.
I originally hated this film, but I saw it when I was in high school and had not yet experienced college. Needless to say I was still innocent to the shenanigans that go on on campus. Some of the elements in the film did not stand the test of time, but it's still hilarious and enjoyable. Sometimes I long for another comedy to be produced like this one. They simply can't get it right anymore. A true classic.
Cultural significance aside, 3 moments save the movie: Bluto at the cafeteria, the scene at Donald Sutherland's place, and Otis Day.
(not Landis' best, not Belushi's best, not Ramis' best, not Elmer Bernstein's best etc...)
Great writing and humour in this late 70s frat comedy. Landis keeps it silly and smart in the same time so this thing is a lot of fun. Belushi is awesome, but not only him. Otis Day & The Knights? Oh yeah they kick as too.
I was in a fraternity for two years before leaving, and i joined because i hoped I would have adventures like these. I didn't, and pretty much all of the so-called brothers hadn't heard of this. Plebians.
I think it was good. I can see why it might be considered "culturally or atheistically significant" however it was just good. The film really acts as a catalyst for Belushi's career and proves itself a classic for college audiences who may face similar incidences in their own dorm or frat life. A college film, fun.
