Thanks, dekeguy. Especially for all the info about your dad and his friends.
Of course, I've heard of "Animal House" but I never saw it. I wasn't allowed to when it came on cable
and then when I was old enough, it would just slip my mind until the next time it came up in conversation. It always comes on USA or TBS and I never watch it because so many people tell me it would be better to rent it than to watch the editted for television
version. It's funny because I could almost hear everyone reading this thread going "She's never seen 'Animal House'!?!". That's usually the reaction I get. Right before "Oh man, you gotta rent it!!"
I keep meaning to rent it, but I usually don't step away from the new release section unless there's an oldie that I want to see that is fresh in my mind at that moment. Since that is now the case with "Animal House" I am definitely going to rent it as soon as I get a chance. I'll let you know what I think after I watch it.
I've never even seen any of the "Revenge of the Nerds" movies or even "Fast Times at Ridgemount High". I think next time I go to Blockbuster I'll pick them all up.
