Flawed, cliché, contrived, and poorly developed...

Mitch (Luke Wilson) has just been cheated on and moved into a nice new bachelor pad right near the local college. But when threatened with eviction by the dean of the college, Mitch's buddies Beanie (Vince Vaughn) and Frank (Will Ferrell) suggest that the

When an Oster Breadmaker gets some of the film's biggest laughs, you know the thing's in trouble.

The lead males give impressively modulated performances that keep the laughs flowing as all hell breaks loose.

Director Phillips confesses to frat membership in his youth, and even made a documentary on the subject. So why is this not funnier or more outrageous?

Film Threat

Will Ferrell is a fearless comedian, and he commits completely to his insanity in the film, and that makes it work.

Only fitfully funny, except when Ferrell is onscreen -- then you won't stop laughing.

Une bonne location pour un party entre amis et pour ceux qui ne sont pas fatigués de la recette des films d'ados.

The recess bell should have rung immediately into the first period of this frothy yet flat and insufferable scholastic satire.

Looking Closer

Will Ferrell ... makes about ten minutes of this movie side-splittingly hilarious. That's like finding a few pieces of crunchy cereal in a bowl of sour milk.

You don't need to run stoplights getting to the theater - the video will do - but Old School fulfills your expectations.

It may not be much, but these days, two or three big laughs is nothing to sneeze at.

Normalmente, não aprecio o tipo de humor rasteiro que este tipo de produção costuma empregar, mas exceções acontecem, e os risos provocados por este filme são a prova disto.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Subplots fizzle out and plausibility dwindles (a thirtysomething college dean?), but at least there are no de rigueur fart, burp or scatological jokes.

A harmless and intermittently funny 90 minutes.

It's insipid, and Will Ferrell streaks through it naked. No, it's not an SNL skit... it's the latest college frat film, and it's marginally ok at best.
