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
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): At the toga party, Bluto already has mustard all over his toga in the shot right before he empties the jar on himself. In the shot just before he dumps the mustard on himself, the toga is clean.
  • Virtually unheard of, "Toga Parties" became all the rage in colleges all over America after the release of this film.
  • Professor Jennings bites an apple while lecturing about good and evil in John Milton's "Paradise Lost". This is a deliberate gag reference to Eve's eating fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, a key event in "Paradise Lost" (and referenced too perhaps by the statue pedestal motto seen in the opening titles: "Knowledge is Good"). Jennings' students miss the gag - as seems most National Lampoon's Animal House viewers.
  • Named the #1 comedy on Bravo's "Funniest 100 Comedies."
