Classic but not perfect comedy that, while not has aged well, at it's best, is as funny as films get. In hindsight, the Deltas are bad people. They don't take their schooling seriously and engage in a lot of destructive & outright criminal behavior (even if it is hilarious at times). It helps that everyone around them is worse, from the horrible rival fraternity houses to Dean Wormer (wonderfully played by John Vernon) who is the standard for evil college bureaucracy. Thankfully, the cast is game, from then newcomers like Kevin Bacon ("ALL IS WELL!!!") to Tim Matheson, wonderfully mischievous as Otter. However, the scene stealer is the late, great John Belushi, who whether with a wire look or a hilarious, if historically inaccurate, motivational speech ("Germans?", "Quiet, he's rolling.") he brings life into every moment he's on screen. Behind the camera, John Landis keeps the comedy fast & loose, though some gags are cringeworthy (at one point, the Delta use the death of a college girl to score dates). However, the comedy hits more than misses, from the horse gag to the ending parade (best parade ever!!). With it's flaws, "Animal House" is a good but not great film. However, does it have some of the funniest scenes & moments in film history, that is without question.
