Animal House

National Lampoons Animal House is a 1978 American comedy film from Universal Pictures, produced by Ivan Reitman and Matty Simmons, directed by John Landis, and starring John Belushi, Tim Matheson, John Vernon, Verna Bloom, Thomas Hulce, and Donald Sutherland. The film, a direct spinoff from National Lampoon magazine, is about a misfit group of fraternity members who challenge the authority of the dean of Faber College.

The year is 1962 and college freshmen Lawrence Larry Kroger and Kent Dorfman seek to join a fraternity at Faber College. Finding themselves out of place at the prestigious Omega Theta Pi Houses party, they visit the slovenly and riotous Delta Tau Chi House next door, where Kents brother was once a member, making Kent a legacy who cannot be rejected. A visibly drunk John Bluto Blutarsky welcomes them, and they meet other Deltas, including biker Daniel DDay Day, ladies man Eric Otter Stratton, and Otters best friend Donald Boon Schoenstein, whose girlfriend Katy is constantly pressuring him to stop drinking with the Deltas and do something with his life. Larry and Kent are invited to pledge and given the fraternity names Pinto and Flounder, respectively, by Bluto, Deltas sergeant at arms.College Dean Vernon Wormer wants to remove the Deltas who are already on probation, so he invokes the Deans right to unlimited power in case of emergencies and puts the Deltas on doublesecret probation due to various campus conduct violations and their abysmal academic standing. He directs the cleancut, smug Omega president Greg Marmalard to find a way for him to kick these punks off campus, permanently. Various incidents, including the accidental death, in the Deans office after hours, of a horse belonging to Omega member and ROTC cadet commander Douglas Neidermeyer, and an attempt by Otter to date Marmalards girlfriend, further increase the Deans and the Omegas animosity toward the Deltas. ........
