Best Comedy in the past 5 years.

This is the best comedy since Tommy Boy. Every college educated male between the ages of 25-50 knows someone just like Frank and Beanie. Absolutely hilarious. Will Farrell is perfect as Frank but Vince Vaughn steals the show. Half of everything Beanie says in this movie is just classic. The plot goes a little off towards the end, but it doesn't matter because my friends and I have been repeating some of the lines for the last 2 years. With all the really lame comedies that have come out in the past 5 years it is nice to see something that will stand the test of time- a modern Animal House. A little too cheesy towards the end but still a top 10 comedy of all time and a must own on DVD.

0/tasteless millions found the following review useful

To be honest I am writing this for the (like minded) people who didn't find this movie entertaining. I sat thru this movie for a simple reason. I watched lots of films at that time. I was attending college and drank heavily, this film's key demographic. I found the whole timbre of this movie most disturbing. Most people, although yearning for their own youth, would not wish to play the naive part over again. The lead characters of this movie are strikingly unrealistic in their success despite almost no effort. They all live in nice homes, drive new cars (except for the smoking trans am, the films only good performance) and have stable lives many on this earth could only dream of. Yet we are to believe that this existence is some sort of torture for them because they can't act like drunken buffoons and belong to a fraternity? Have you ever met a women even remotely resembling this movie's stereotypes? It's as though they are trying to justify the poor treatment of them. Much comedy is based on people having the wrong reaction to normal situations. The (clearly misogynistic) writers seem to have purposely eschewed clever in favor of obnoxious. The personas portrayed are really nasty, vindictive sadists terrified of the implications of adulthood. In particular the divorce scene is beyond obtuse. The funeral scene was no picnic either. Best avoided.

I Can't Decide Which of These Actors I Hate More

Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson are not, and never have been, funny. Decent dramatic actors. But not funny.

Stiffler, or whatever his name is, is not funny. Does he even have a career anymore?

Smarmy Craig Kilborn has never been funny. Is he behind the counter at a Quik- E-Mart these days?

King of Queen's wife is not funny. Fat. But not funny.

Ellen Pompeo from Grey's Anatomy is cute. But not funny.

Old School rips off far better movies: Animal House. Fight Club. Stripes. The Graduate.

But just when I thought this cr#pfest was in danger of sinking to a 3- or 4-star movie, Andy Dyck shows up to ''totally redeem this movie'' to paraphrase a line from Dumb and Dumber. I would rank Andy Dyck alongside Gallagher and Carrot Top as the most obnoxiously unfunny humans on Earth.Credit where it's due: he drove this right down to 1 star.

Writer/director/producer Todd Phillips must hate comedy, audiences or both.
