User Review

Animal House for the 90's

Rating: 10/10

This film is one of the most underrated films i have ever seen. The film follows 2 roommates Coop and Josh and there plan to have a roommate kill himself so they can achieve straight A's. Although that storyline only comes in the second half of the film for the first half we just spend the time in college with the boys. The chemistry between the 2 leads is great and Mark Paul Gosselar sort of plays his role as Zack from SBTB for a more adult audience ( which i thought was genius), his charisma meant that I was never bored.why he never broke into the A list I don't know. but its all politics. It is one of the most quotable films i have ever seen,with so many great characters The comedy here is not for everyone but if you like films which don't take themselves seriously then this is for you. The soundtrack is also great and has Dust Brother as executive producers would you believe it (they did the soundtrack for fight club among others) The icing on the cake though is Cliff O Malley the insane party Animal who really should have got more screen time, he makes every scene he is in and I was just crying with laughter, he really is a match for Bluto. This film is great to watch with a bunch of mates I give it 9/10
