Description

Mitch (Luke Wilson) returns home from a less-than-pleasant business trip one evening to discover his wife, Heidi (Juliette Lewis), involved in a ménage à trois with two blindfolded strangers. Feeling less than welcome at home after this, Mitch rents a house near the campus of a nearby college; two of Mitch's old college buddies, Beanie (Vince Vaughn) and Frank (Will Ferrell), stop by to cheer him up. They soon become regular guests at Mitch's place, despite the fact that Frank only recently wed Marissa (Perrey Reeves), while Beanie and his wife, Lara (Leah Remini), are busy with two kids. Beanie decides to throw a housewarming party for Mitch, and since Beanie sells audio equipment for a living, he's able to trick out the big bash with a massive PA system and an appearance by Snoop Dogg. Mitch soon finds he's the not-entirely-willing proprietor of the school's leading party spot, which raises the ire of Pritchard (Jeremy Piven), a dean at the college who was the target of Mitch, Frank, and Beanie's abuse when they were all students. Pritchard arranges to have Mitch's neighborhood zoned into a student housing district, but Beanie and Frank respond by forming a fraternity and making Mitch's home their headquarters. Mitch, however, is not enthusiastic about the idea, especially as he's trying to impress Nicole (Ellen Pompeo), a beautiful divorcee who is less than enchanted with Frank and Beanie's "party hearty" lifestyle.

    Great cast, great acting and a great film. I wouldn't give 5 stars easily but this film for me truly is a comedy classic! I can watch it over and over again. If you like Will Ferrel films and this kind of humour then this film will be right up your street. You would be hard pressed to spend your money on another comedy film and get the same value/watchability that you would from Old School. Enjoy!
  • Great film!!!

    Old School is without doubt an instant comedy classic that ultimately started the career of film director Todd Phillips, who later made his name with the film "The Hangover". The story centres around Mitch (Luke Wilson) who ends his relationship with his girlfriend after finding her participating in an orgy upon his return from a business trip. After the breakup, Mitch goes house hunting and finds a house located near a university campus. Mitch's friends, Bernard (Vince Vaughn) and Frank (Will Farrell), decide to throw him a house party to get his mind off the breakup, with the party ultimately making Mitch and his friends the top of the university social scene. From this an hilarious story unravels that makes Old School a definite must watch.

    brilliant. what it's like to be a bloke who can't let go. "and I was wondering if maybe you wanted to get some frozen yogurt, or perhaps a whole meal of food". absurd and great.
