Mitch, Frank and Beanie are disillusioned with their personal lives begining when Mitch's nymphomanic girlfriend, Heidi, cheats on him, then former party animal Frank gets married, but unwilling to get go of his wild life, and Beanie is a family man seeking to reclaim his wild and crazy youth. Beanie suggests that they form their own fraternity in Mitch's new house on a college campus to re-live their glory days by bringing together a variety of misfit college students, losers, middle-aged and elderly retirees as their new friends and later try to avoid being evicted by the new Dean of Students, Pritchard, whom still holds a personal grudge against all three of them.

I wasn't looking for a girl like that.

Well, Columbus wasn't looking for America, my man, but that turned out to be pretty okay for everyone.

User Review

Why anyone would not like this movie is beyond me

Rating: 10/10

This has to be one of the funniest movies ever made. I laughed so hard
during this movie. I've heard a lot of bad reviews for this movie, and
I can't believe what some people have said. Apparently some copies of
this movie were taped over with that godawful Jennifer Aniston debacle
"Picture Perfect", because that is the only explanation that I have for
the people who have said those things. Seriously, Old School has some
of the funniest scenes in movie history…and I've seen a LOT of
movies. Mandatory for all movie fans to see. One of the greatest movies
ever created! If you haven't seen this movie yet, go get it NOW! Buy
it, rent it, borrow it, steal it, whatever, just see it somehow. 10/10
