The best exploration of Watergate by an american director? Meryl Streep not singing? Uh - no.

Karen Allen pre Indiana Jones in Time warp shenanigans? John Belushi acting? May be.
No Synopsis - just watch the disintegration of America- hilarity still on the double secret probation agenda.
John Landis' best pure comedy.

A++

A superb and classic comedy made so much better by re-mastering to blu-ray. The picture is excellent- not reference or as good as,say,Zulu but of avery high order. You will see detail never before seen (and I go as far back as the original VHS release) on the DVD. Excellent transfer.

I can't believe the incredibly low price of this classic on Blu-ray. The film's never looked or sounded better. And it's REGION FREE.

This is the same as the DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION EDITION. The extras are in Standard Definition only, but that's not a problem as they look fine. There's still no commentary unfortunately.

Highly recommended.

THAT SENSE OF BEING THERE AND SHARING THE SAME FUN
Still irresistible, smart, funny after so many years, this is definitely one of the best comedies ever made and the best college comedy ever.
What makes it so enjoyable is that it immediately conveys a sense of amused and foolish camaraderie, through a fantastic cast, memorable lines and buddy scenes, and an overall atmosphere of oppression, given by the autumn setting (which apparently clashes with the carefree and liberating spirit of the film and its characters) and a perfect portrait of the midtown college life.
A film to be watched along with 1941, sharing some actors and a similar liberating and deconstructing approach to American way of life.
NOT JUST A FUNNY COMEDY
Comedy here is not just funny, but is even funnier when the gags and the lines make fun of american way-of-life, patriotic rhetoric as well as mainstream hollywood clichè (see the final act, including the notes saying what will happen to the characters).
Definitely Landis masterpiece (maybe even more than Blues Brothers, Trading PLaces and American Werewolf) and one every young generation can identify with, although I believe not everyone will appreciate and catch every single comical detail, and the fact that, all in all, the humor is not so fast-paced: unlike nowadays comedies, it takes sometimes a whole scene or more than one to really build up and let the irony explode, or get even more hilarious (see the surreal portrait of professor Sutherland, see the evil Mayor, the night accident with the horse, the easy going mood inside the house and during the party, or the flirt with the mayor's wife, as well as all the final part, made of little gags that make just one big comical scene).
BLU RAY:
not an irresistible HD transfer, but quite rich of extra, interview, and an original "re-union" documentary where actors still play their characters, just to reveal what happened to each of them

A Classic Film from National Lampoon
This one of there first films and is full of one liners, stupid college gags and nudity.
Characters are brilliant its fun to watch.
Set in a college, its about 2 FRAT houses and the bantering going on between the 2 houses. Same old story but with lots of fun and laughs.
