I knew I was seeing this as soon as it was going to get released. Road Trip was a funny college flick, and this one is just as good.

The story is about Mitch (Luke Wilson) who catches his girlfriend/ wife in a really weird sexual situation and moves out into an on-campus house, and his two buddies (Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn) want to start up a fraternity so they don’t get kicked out of the house for not being part of the college.

Whatever, they start up a frat and yadda yadda, it’s funny. Will Ferrell has become one of my favorite comedic actors. SNL has sucked so bad since he left and I hope he makes lots more comedies. Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson do a fun job with the film but I think Will Ferrell stole the show from these guys but I think it’s a team effort. The 3 of them together was great and I’m sure they had just as much fun filming this as they appear to be.

The movie has everything: naked chicks, Elisha Cubert, KY Jelly fighting, school spirit shit, cameos galore, mullets, Snoop, great music, blowjob class, and a naked Will Ferrell for the ladies of course. haha. I think I laughed the most for one scene in the beginning of the film. It was for a wedding, and the wedding singer put a nice spin on Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse Of The Heart.” Though with the film, I think the movie is slow in a few parts, and I think I liked Road Trip better. It shows the motivation of the characters more, and the story is a stronger one but both are fun college movies. Go see this!

Bottom Line:
Favorite Scenes: The wedding singer, Blow job class, Dart scene, streaking scene
Rating:
Running Time: 91 minutes
