Follow the uproarious escapades of the Delta House fraternity as they take on Dean Wormer (John Vernon), the sanctimonious Omegas, and the entire female student body. Directed by John Landis (The Blues Brothers) and considered by many to be the most popular college comedy of all-time, the film also stars Tim Matheson, Donald Sutherland, Karen Allen, Kevin Bacon, Tom Hulce and Stephen Furst along with Otis Day and the Knights performing their show-stopping rendition of Shout. This is a college party you’re not going to want to miss!

    I wasn’t sure if you would be offering a giveaway for this one. It was dated when it was made, as it was set in the ’60′s, but it has since developed a cult following not unlike many movies of it’s style and era. I would gladly go see it. I am not certain how old I was when I first saw it, but my father enjoyed John Belushi, and later, Jim.

  3. Mark PAGAN says:

    Classic – for its epically stupid/brilliant quotable lines

  4. Brian Stumpfol says:

    This is a classic… I saw it back when it first came out in 1978.. It was Bulushi’s most Iconic role next to The Blues Brothers and 1941. and all of his Sat Nite Live characters
    He was an amazing comic and actor and he died way before his time. I never missed an episode of Saturday Night Live back then with the Not Ready For Prime Time Players which gave us some of the best know actors/actresses of the time

    Animal House is what college life was like back in the 60s and supposedly with a bunch of misfits that didn’t fit in with any other frats. If you never saw this movie ever then go see it on the big screen the go buy it on DVD

    One of the few movies that you can watch over and over again

  5. This film is absolutely a classic. I don’t see how there could be any question about it. It launched their careers many starters, exploded the impact of second city, made it’s a director legendary and is quoted eagerly by generations of fans many years and decades later. What else would it need to be considered a classic?

  6. That should’ve read, “launched the film careers of many stars.”

  7. Laura A. says:

    I would love to win these for my brother’s upcoming birthday!

  8. Shelia says:

    Please excuse if this is a duplicate copy. Getting conflicting messages: Website isn’t working, then Looks like you posted this already. …Well I really don’t know, it didn’t show up. ??
    Another fun one to just sit back and have some good belly laughs! I surprised my son with Planet of the Apes and he is definitely on board for this one too!
    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Sheila, sorry for any inconvenience, and glad you were able to post. Thanks for entering and Good Luck! :)

  9. Daniel G. says:

    John Landis directed his best movies in late 70′s/early 80′s, Animal House, The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London (a personal favorite). The movie has endlessly quotable lines and the misfits of Animal House remind us all of our college days, even if we didn’t go to college. TOGA, TOGA, TOGA!!!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      It’s definitely a fun film :) Thanks for entering and Good Luck :)

      Hi Daniel,

      Congratulations! You are one of our winners! I just emailed you for your theater info. If you don’t receive the email, please let me know asap. Thanks so much!

  10. Brad Lobdell says:

    Well it sure feels like a classic to me! Maybe because of the era of the setting of the film? Plus anything that is from almost 40 years ago feels like a classic.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Brad, I don’t see your tweet yet. Please let me know when/if you tweeted, or let me know if you don’t have a twitter account. Thanks!

  11. Mike Alcala says:

    Classic as in all the jokes and Belushi! And there is no other like it…that was as good of course. Love Belushi and this awesome movie!

  12. Polly Rittenberg says:

    I see “Animal House” as a classic film because so many of the film’s quotes, hijinks, and it’s general cult following are so enveloped in American pop culture. People who haven’t even seen it know about toga parties, food fights, and can quote Bluto. It’s a movie that has stood the test of time, and that is what makes it a classic.
    It would be incredibly to see it in all it’s bizarre glory on the big screen.

  13. Jeanelle Kleveland says:

    Hmmm. What makes Animal House classic? Maybe the best answer is that boys will be boys. It never seems to change.
