Old School (2003)


Mitch, Frank and Beanie are disillusioned with their personal lives begining when Mitch's nymphomanic girlfriend, Heidi, cheats on him, then former party animal Frank gets married, but unwilling to get go of his wild life, and Beanie is a family man seeking to reclaim his wild and crazy youth. Beanie suggests that they form their own fraternity in Mitch's new house on a college campus to re-live their glory days by bringing together a variety of misfit college students, losers, middle-aged and elderly retirees as their new friends and later try to avoid being evicted by the new Dean of Students, Pritchard, whom still holds a personal grudge against all three of them.

I totally loved “Old School” with a mix of wacky comedy, awesome cameos and some great moments delivered with such comedic timing, from masters of this vein of film.

You know if Will Farrell is in it is going to be a silly, offside, but very funny film. Vaughn is a also a solid bet in these kinds of films, but it was Luke Wilson that took the show for me, with one of the best displays of dry humour in god knows how long.
Old School is a fun film, and has an appeal that spans the generation gaps, so if you want to just have a great laugh this is one of the films to see!
