Much like Caddyshack, another Harold Ramis penned movie, Animal House exists as more of a serious of sketches than a cohesive 3 act story. But it has an anarchic energy and a deft ability to extract laughs from the simplest and most common of situations that it really doesn't matter. It may not have made me laugh as much as I thought it would, considering it's one of cinemas most acclaimed comedies, but when it did the comedy came from wit and character and hit bullseye every time. John Belushi near steals the show with every gag he makes. His devilish grin, his wriggling eyebrows, the way he invests himself in every joke. It's a real shame we lost him so soon. Even if you don't like the movie you can witness its influence in comedies even today, and it's most certainly worth seeing for its quirkiness, quotability and unashamed immaturity.
