Knowledge is good, but swilling kegs of beer is more fun! Just ask the guys at the Delta House fraternity. Dean Wormer puts the titular frat on double-secret probation, and it's up to Bluto, Flounder, Pinto and the rest of the brothers to get even.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Chevy Chase was originally asked to play the role of Eric Stratton. The role went to Tim Matheson instead, who later starred with Chase in Fletch.
  • A scene featuring Otter driving a girl (played by location scout Katherine Wilson (II)) to the Rainbow Motel on Old Mill Road is seen briefly in the original trailer but was deleted from the film.
  • To prepare for their roles, the actors playing the Deltas went to a real frat party at the University of Oregon's SAE house (except John Belushi, who was working on Saturday Night Live that night). The real fraternity members did not like the actors being there and a brawl ensued. When Belushi returned to the set and heard about the fight, he had to be physically restrained from seeking revenge.
  • In the scene where Hoover and Bluto are swearing in the new freshman, the book that Hoover is holding is actually an auto repair manual. According to the Animal House backstory, the fraternity's pledge book had actually been destroyed in a fire three years earlier.
