Movie Info

The lowbrow side of higher education returns to the screen in this purposefully tasteless comedy brought to you by the folks at National Lampoon. It's a few days before Christmas vacation, and a mood of giddy enthusiasm is in the air at a coed college dormitory. However, one of the students, a freshman, is despondent over his lack of success with the ladies during his first term at school. His older brother decides the lad needs to lose his virginity before he can make any real progress with his classmates, and hires a prostitute named Dominique (Boti Bliss) to give his brother some experience in the ways of physical love. However, it turns out that more than one Dominique is on her way to the dorm -- a French foreign-exchange student with the same name and almost no working knowledge of the English language (Marie Noelle Marquis) also shows up, and much confusion and comic hijinks ensue. Shot under the title Dorm Day Crazy, National Lampoon Presents: Dorm Daze was produced independently, but was later picked up by the National Lampoon organization, who in turn arranged a distribution deal for the picture.

Totally devoid of humor.

National Lampoon used to mean 'good comedy'. Now it's considered a warning.

...it's hard not to wonder if directors David and Scott Hillenbrand were trying to shatter the record for most wacky misunderstandings in a single film.

Reel Film Reviews

putting all the first-act plot holes aside, Dorm Daze is, well, still a really stupid film

Once the whole thing begins to play out, the movie's inventiveness drags.

The longer the film runs, the more interesting a watchdial becomes.

Audience Reviews for National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze

i dont see why this movie got such a low rating. this movie is very funny in a unique way and i just think this movie is not that bad.

"Transylmania" was one of the worst horror comedies I ever saw. And it was the third in this trilogy, so I've gone to the source. This is actually a much better movie. Half the characters are the same from "Transylmania" which is just weird to see. But the "comedy of errors" stories are better and weave together more amusingly. Basically, I liked this movie more than I would've had I not seen the third film first.

When you have a movie where everything that can go wrong, will go wrong, the movie just becomes wrong. Never before have I seen a plot line so tangled within itself and so desperately trying to tie all of the stories together in a humorous way that it completely destroys the film. I have no idea how point A got to point B and I spent the entire time thinking that something was being resolved so I can finally turn off this god forsaken movie and go to sleep, then they completely twist the event to go on for another 15 minutes over and over again. Never before has a movie made me more frustrated than this one. I am forced to give them a half star since zero isn't an option.
