By C. O. DeRiemer HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There's wide agreement that the three greatest American film comedies are It Happened One Night from 1934, The Lady Eve from 1941 and 1986's Back to School. Some might quibble that It Happened One Night is no match for Miss Congeniality when it comes to female snorting or that The Lady Eve doesn't have the consistent belly laughs of Turner & Hooch, nor does it have a lovable, slobbering dog unless one counts Henry Fonda. Back to School, however, remains one of a kind.

But seriously, folks...I like this movie a lot. It's not just that the film pokes hard at complacent academia, or that there are a string of great comedy moments given to us by several first-rate actors. Mainly, there's Rodney Dangerfield, himself an idiosyncratic comedian who at times can be easy to get tired of. As Thornton Melon, an up-from-his-boot-straps wealthy clothier -- he owns the Tall & Fat stores -- who signs up as a college student determined to help his wimpish son become popular, Dangerfield is something else. He's not just the loud, wisecracking, eye-popping comedian. Dangerfield gives Melon a layer of good-natured intentions, likeability and even a little lost pathos that is eventually quite endearing.

Some parts of the movie don't work too well for me, mainly the parts of the storyline that involve Melon's son, played by Keith Gordon, his son's pal, played by Robert Downey, Jr., and his love interest, played by Sally Kellerman. Gordon is wimpish enough but, in my view, not very interesting. Downey is little more than an over-the-top exaggeration, and Kellerman puts me off with her above-the-salt manner and accent.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie should inspire us all to go back. 8 Feb 2005
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
When Thornton Melon was a young lad, his hard working father told him that he was a Melon and could do anything, but with out a formal education he was nothing. But Thornton instead went into business and made a fortune. Today he has a son and told him that he also is a Melon and can do anything. He sends his son to collage to get a formal education. Soon he finds his some can use some help and that tempered with a divorce spears Thornton to finally get the education he missed.
Rodney has been in many films. However this is the one I will always relate him to. Aside from his one liners and "I get no respect" gags he does a good job of bring out the best (and worst) abut collage. I will admit that he does not look like Bing Crosby in "High Time" (1960), however we have just as much fun watching him adjust and then do one better.
On of my favorite parts is when he has Kurt Vonnegut Jr. doing his homework; that is called delegation.
One annoying part of school is when someone says there is so much "picture framing material" and asks how do you make a picture twice as wide as it is high? People usually measure the picture for the frame. So when the professor said let's build a factory and Thorton Melon asks what are you going to make? I about fell off my seat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerfield At His Best 30 Nov 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great comedy. Dangerfield is the miliionaire slob almost an expansion of his Al Cervic character in Caddyshack. If you liked him in that you will love him in this.
Here he returns to school to help prop up his rather limp son played by Keith Gordon. He was the geek in Christine. I found him quite irritating simply because it wasnt credible that the irrepressible Dangerfield would have such a drippy kid. However an excellent supporing cast and a classic high diving sequence makes this Dangerfields best foray into film. Avoid this movie at your peril. Its very,very funny. If you like what you see here I suggest you give Easy Money a look. Rodney stars alongside a young Joe Pesci, I think its only available in the Region 1 format however.
