Matheson e Riegert são pobres substitutos para Chevy Chase e Bill Murray - e, embora Belushi esteja hilário como de hábito, o filme tornou-se fatalmente anacrônico.
| Original Score: 2/5

A dated, rarely funny celebration of being spoiled and white.

While the low comedy is undeniably effective, the film leaves behind a bad taste of snobbery and petty meanness.

An unashamed sense of its own fantasy is coupled with classically mounted slapstick; nostalgia mixes with cynicism in seductive proportions; and John Belushi's central performance as brain-damaged slob-cum-Thief of Baghdad is wonderful.

...incredibly well cast, a fact that might have as much to do with it's persistence in the collective imagination as anything else.

The movie is vulgar, raunchy, ribald, and occasionally scatological. It is also the funniest comedy since Mel Brooks made The Producers.

One of the all-time classic movies, and a career-defining performance by Belushi make this mandatory viewing for any movie lover.

"Animal House" never settles for just funny. It always strives for double-secret funny.

John Belushi's raucous toga party isn't for young kids.

Almost everyone else has at least one funny scene to equal Belushi's greatest moments.

The Lampoon people understand the darkest secret of an American college education: one of the noblest reasons to go is to spend four years studying sex.

The spirit of National Lampoon, as well as the voice of a generation...

There's enough bite and bawdiness to provide lots of smiles and several broad guffaws.
