    The cafeteria scene is perhaps the funniest sequence to ever be caught on film.

    I saw this when it first came out. FUNNY and now a classic. John Belushi at his very best. The entire cast was funny.

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

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

    Animal House is the sort of film you hate yourself for laughing at. It is so gross and tasteless you feel you should be disgusted but it's hard to be offended by something that is so sidesplittingly funny. [05 Aug 1978]
