Don't Know Much of Biology...

The latest installment of classic movies looks at John Landis' 1978 gem "Animal House."

The movie that inspired so many college kids to do despicable things and even younger kids to start a food fight in the cafeteria-- "Animal House."

Let's start with the trailer:

Sadly, so much of it is off limits here because of the language, but let's hit the highlights, starting with the cafeteria scene:

Who hasn't been to a toga party?

The classic Belushi scene from the movie and the Toga party:

Check out the look on Belushi's face just before he walks out as Dean Wormer is shouting after Otter's Defense:

The funny part about this next scene is the guy who's in it, Peter Reigert who plays Otter.  he was actually in Lansing a while back and our trusty EP Jeff and myself asked the photographer to say this: "You know, I was in your shoes right now, I'd be--" And he was supposed to finish the classic line from the movie.  Of course he didn't play along and it was a classic failure, so now the whole thing has lost its luster a bit.

And we finish it off with the zinger from Dean Wormer, who eclipses his line in "The Outlaw Josey Wales" of "Don't p*ss down my back and tell me it's rainin'." 

There you go.  And remember-- you're all worthless and weak!  Now drop and give me twenty!
