Frequently Bought Together
Three men are disenchanted with life and try to recapture their college days.
Jovial comedy Old School sees three thirtysomething friends with woman troubles (Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn) deciding to form a college fraternity. It's supposedly to save Wilson from losing his house, which the nearby college is trying to claim for academic purposes, but really Ferrell and Vaughn are desperate to return to the reckless, feckless days of beer bongs and hot chicks, and they drag Wilson along with them as they throw themselves into gathering frat pledges of all ages. Old School could have been just another string of bad jokes hanging on a flimsy plot, but the script and the cast have energy and just enough grounding in reality--at least, up until the obligatory beat-the-system ending, but by that point you'll forgive the excesses of this silly, cheerful, and frequently funny movie. Featuring Jeremy Piven and Juliette Lewis, with cameos by Snoop Dog, Andy Dick, and others. --Bret FetzerSee all Product Description

I can't sit and watch American Pie...it's just pointless teenage comedy...nothing I can relate to there. I expected the same sort of thing with Old School but being a Vaughn/Ferrell/Wilson fan I thought I'd give it a go...never expecting to enjoy it let alone love it as much as I do.
The plot is routine...but it's the characters - and the excellent cast who play them - that make the movie. If you're a guy in your thirties or a girl who knows guys in their thirties you will relate to the three main characters. Guys who have suddenly realised they're supposed to be grown up and that for the rest of their lives they are expected to behave as responsible adults. It's the kind of shock to the system you get at that age...playtime's over...nothing between you, crown green bowling and daily doses of Countdown.
So our three heros decide to rebel...they take a last grasp at being dumb, irresponsible lads. The poignant thing is that, bar perhaps Frank, they actually end the movie accepting that maybe growing up isn't that bad after all.
So intentionally or not this movie does have a point to make...and it's done with great affection.
Added to the fact that it is also totally hilarious...and I mean laugh out loud, still smile thinking about it days later, hilarious. Also check out the DVD commentary - Vaughn, Wilson, Ferrel and director Todd Phillips....very very funny. The other DVD extras are really funny too.
If you have a sense of humour and you're anywhere near being a 30-something you cannot help but love this movie.
'I can see Blue. He's glorious'
After a few watches i loved this film so much, its a classic! your my boy blue, frank the tank ('honey do ya think kfc's still open?!'), the swearing band at the wedding and of course- the fat guy falling through the manhole! theres too many classic moments here and its definately ferrells best performance to date, it also launched vince vaughn in a big way as he's hardly been off the screen since! its a feel good movie too and every guy who's nearing 30 will appreciate this movie as livin the dream, again!!!
watch it (maybe twice) and u'll love it i promise!!!
Alright it may not be the most highbrow of films but it certainly delivers on the belly-laughs front. There a quote's a plenty contained within and are often recited between my housemates ("we're going streaking!!") The characters are instantly likeable especially Will Ferrell's "Frank 'the Tank'" who often bring memories of many of our own drunken nights back! Vince vaughn is great as the cynical married man ("i'm married, do i look happy to you?"), and Luke Wilson turning in a strong performance as the gutted Mitch.
There are plenty of gags here, including a brilliant breeze-block off the side of a building moment, and the KY jelly wrestling tournament is something i'm sure every bloke wants in his basement! Like most teen movies around, the ending is somewhat predictable, but then when you've laughed so hard from the start, who really cares?!
In summary, the characters work really well with each other, with Frank being nearly everyone's favourite and is superbly played by Ferrell (go check him out in Starsky and Hutch, another star-turn there too!) the plot, although somewhat formulaic, certainly trundles along nicely with plenty of eye-candy (the simply luuuuuurrrvely Elisha Cuthbert) and many others, with enough gags and witty scripting to keep you chuckling all the way through!
Even if the concept of fraternities doesn't really exist in the UK, i'm gonna make a damn good stab at starting one!
All together now- "we're going up through the quad, and into the gymnasium!!"
Everyone has picked up on the performance of Will Ferrel and I have to agree with them. He brings alive such a wonderfully funny character in 'Frank The Tank' that I wish he were one of my friends!
The whole story is really absurd but so hilarious that you just don't care. There are some real corkers in this movie that more than make up for anything you may find a little too far fetched.
Seann William Scott of Road Trip fame puts in a brilliant cameo too. It's one of my fave scenes. There are some scenes that are so funny that you may find yourself sitting in a little yellow puddle!!!
I was going to write down my fave 5 scenes but I can't pick! Do yourself a favour and buy this film now because you WILL want to watch it again and again!
(that is if you have ANY sense of humour and you're not some kind of boring, sad old fart!!!)
Nuff said me thinks!!!

This is one of those classics; much like Animal House, Bull Durham, etc, that I keep on my list to watch periodically.Published 1 month ago by pmthomas
One of the best Will Ferrell films. Very funny and one I have watched quite a few times.Published 1 month ago by Alan Darwin
Not surprised it was so poor as it was very cheap. You'd think a film with these kinds of actors in would be brilliant but I disagree. It makes no sense. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Nicola23
