Podcast: ANIMAL HOUSE Was So Good, It Ruined a Generation
National Lampoon’s Animal House is hilarious – it’s not even an opinion, it’s a fact. Following a house full of screw-ups, we see Otter, Boon, Bluto and Hoover guiding their pledges Flounder and Pinto to how to party their way through life. While school administration and girlfriend Katy try to get the boys to grow up, they double down on their wild antics, making disrespect an art form. Maybe they’re “animals,” but they were so cool. In this episode of “’80’s Movies: A Guide to What’s Wrong with Your Parents” podcast, film authorities Tara McNamara, Gen X, and Riley Roberts, Gen Z, look at the college comedy classic through the modern lens and show how a movie from 1978 laid the groundwork for who Gen X would become.
