What can be said about National Lampoons Animal House that hasnt been said already? How about the fact that its the rare kind of movie that continues to pay dividends as the years go by? Most films from our youth dont withstand the test of time, but Animal House actually gets better with age. Dubious? Then come down to a screening of the film at Chapman Universitys Folino Theater where, following the show, co-writer Chris Miller will answer your questions and regale you with his own horror stories of fraternity life that inspired many of the movies scenes. And thats why its so good; instead of going for cheap laughs, the writers remembered the most important, and often overlooked, part of storytelling: Truth. And boobies too, of course.
