Why anyone would not like this movie is beyond me (by SomePerson78)
This has to be one of the funniest movies ever made. I laughed so hard during this movie. I've heard a lot of bad reviews for this movie, and I can't believe what some people have said. Apparently some copies of this movie were taped over with that godawful Jennifer Aniston debacle "Picture Perfect", because that is the only explanation that I have for the people who have said those things. Seriously, Old School has some of the funniest scenes in movie history...and I've seen a LOT of movies. Mandatory for all movie fans to see. One of the greatest movies ever created! <more>
If you haven't seen this movie yet, go get it NOW! Buy it, rent it, borrow it, steal it, whatever, just see it somehow. 10/10
How can you not like this?? (by HerGhostInTheFog_)
Frank Will Ferrell , Beenie Vince Vaughn and Mitch Luke Wilson three men who form a fraternity to legally stay in the house Mitch just purchased. This movie is jam packed with endless comedy of course it's Will Ferrell you can't help but laugh at the dude every time you see him. Old School when it hit DVD was the number one rented movie in North America thats quiet good for a movie anyone barely heard of when it first came out. But this movie caught the eyes of many fans. It should have a higher rating but I guess some people thought it was average. but to tell the truth it <more>
kicked some major comedy's to the curve. Not using so much of a teenage scene they conquered the mix of adulthood with college students forming a fan base for both a younger and older audience. By younger I mean 16 and up but usually movies either aim for 16 to 25 years of age. But this movie provides an entertainment that everyone can enjoy yes even your grandma. This movie definitely deserves a 10 and I have the power to do that. Buy this movie for god sakes it's a great movie to add to the comedy collection.
I saw Old School yesterday night on a french channel completely by chance. I knew nothing about it. It's a wonderful movie. I hadn't laughed like this since years. The main characters are caricatures but hilarious especially Franck the tank... , the story is completely stupid but fantastic and the parties these thirty year old men who don't want to grow up organize are contagious and push you to go back to university with a good beer... Some celebrities make successful appearances Juliette Lewis, Sean William Scott... playing completely deranged characters, adding energy and <more>
fun to this well rhythmic comedy.Old School reminds me Fight Club for the notorious "Godfather" as famous in this high school as Tyler Durden and a lot of incredibly funny sequences of this movie would be adopted by Monty Python themselves.And above all, Old Scholl spares us an horrible ending like : "Well, I was a child, making mistakes, but now I understand a lot of things, honey, and I want to go back with you, our house, kids, dogs, canaries and God knows what else...". This film remains faithful to its principles and THAT'S GREAT!! What else can I say : see this movie and be in a good mood for the rest of the day; I'm gonna see it once more now.Thank you Todd Phillips.
Thus far the funniest movie of 2003 (by DunnDeeDaGreat)
I just got out of Old School and let me say I laughed myself silly. Todd Phillps has made a great follow up to Road Trip and the same way Tom Green stole the former, Will Ferrel steals every scene he's in. Luke Wilson and Vince Vaughn also have equally funny scenes. If you want a funny movie then this is for you.
Will Ferrell... (by afncsu)
I love Will Ferrell, therefore I will support just about anything he is in. I loved this movie-it is hilarious. My only only problem was that Will seemed to carry most of the humorous scenes except the lead singer of the wedding band . I never tire of his humor, but they should have given him a break.
Guilty Favourite (by nicholls905-280-546911)
Can't argue about my love for this film. It is funny and not super serious. You can leave your brain at the door. Won't impress the critics, but combining this film with drinks is a must.
A school that doesn't suck (by EvLauster)
***1/2 Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Julliete Lewis, Jeremy Priven cameo by Todd Phillips and Snoop Dogg . Directed by Todd PhillipsMitch Luke Wilson is an average guy who happens to catch the early flight home. There he catches his girl friend Heidi Juliette Lewis watching some hardcore porn and then being tackled by a naked couple. With the help of his friends Frank Will Ferrell and Beanie Vince Vaughn ; whom help Mitch start his own frat house. Mitch is now promoted to The Godfather. After they round up all the members and make a 80 year old do push ups. The Dean Gordon <more>
Pritchard Jeremy Priven tries to shut them down. "Old School" is a smart comedy with tons of humor. Todd Phillips who directed Road Trip and Starsky and Hutch based on the 70's show all three are funny, has done a tremendous job packing plenty of good/bad humor. My final rating 8/10.
Where 'the child within' remains buoyant into middle age and beyond (by greymumster)
Look I don't know if anyone else does this? When I rent movies, what I like to do is choose two or three films to watch back to back, in a sort of film-binge. I take quite a bit of care to choose films that will 'work' together in a symbiotic resonance with each and my particular mood. It might be mono-genre fest, a world cinema whammy, old film/new remake combo or a mix and match melange. Whatever! When I'm watching with anyone else I prefer to do a quirky pairing that will promote a full on post-pleasure chin-wag. This explains why I watched OLD SCHOOL and SIDEWAYS at the <more>
same sitting. What an interesting pairing! They are both Men Behaving Badly/ Buddy Rites de Passage vehicles. They are both variants of very funny, they are both cast with known and admired funny-men, they both have comparatively young new directors, they both feature weddings and boys downtime antics.etc.etc. I love sniffing out blossoming social trend in movies used to be in fashion forecasting . For me watching from a female perspective, the most notable thing was how both scripts constructed a scenario that allows the juvenile phase of manhood to be extended way into middle age and far beyond. the thirties are new forties and I don't think it is entirely because the bestest funny guys are that age and need continuity of work! I maybe wrong here but the film industry doesn't seem to be providing the same comedic opportunities to female actors. There have been offerings in the grey spinster/old girls genre, but they are usually serious emotional dramas. It seems so unfair that the chaps are allowed to keep their child within buoyant for ever and us women are doomed to a bitter croneship getting continually cosmetically upgraded to deny our age.I do realise films are not real life but I think you will agree there is an audience/ film interaction going on that informs society?. Old bags have a sense of lightweight fun as well, so where are all the youthful girly directors prepared to have a laugh at their own expense??? Well while we are waiting for this to happen OLD SCHOOL is superb entertainment that fills the void.
Well as everyone knows this is a freaking hilarious movie. It's pretty much considered a classic so how I missed seeing it until now is beyond me. I finally 'get' what my brother is doing when he says "earmuffs" to his 2 year old son now.Cheap laughs and raunchy over the top humour from a fantastic cast who work incredibly well together. Lots of cameos and clever secondary roles or bit parts as well. Well Ferrell actually made me cry I was laughing so hard.The plot is pretty good for a comedy and follows 3 mid twenty-ish guys trying to postpone adulthood responsibility, <more>
wives, families in favour of recapturing the irresponsible fun of their college years by starting their own off-campus frat house. In order to avoid being evicted by the Dean, still holding a personal grudge they bring together a misfit of student pledges; losers, the middle-aged and elderly retirees. 6/1/11
