Old School - i just saw it!

...and let me tell you this movie blows all of the other "teen comedies" out of the water by using...adults! as the main actors. this movie was just ridiculously funny. i just really want to hear other people's opinions or whatever if they liked it as much as me. i couldnt stop laughing the entire movie.

basically the plot starts off like the trailer says where Luke Wilson's girlfriend is having a secret gang-bang behind his back when he's out on business. he goes to get a new house (which is out on a college campus), where Will Farrell and Vince Vaughn decide to "move in" with him. its hilarious.

please, go see this movie. this thing...i cant breathe some parts when i was laughing.

oh....and Elisha Cuthbert (Kim from 24) runs around in skimpy outfits...definately a

I tend to take all comedy related opinions with a grain of salt. Could you tell me a few other comedies you really enjoyed, just so I know how to judge your opinion. I only ask this because I am somewhat interested in this one. Thanks.

Understandable. I am the kind of person who likes a smart comedy (about a boy, bring it on, ice age, kissing jessica stein) as opposed to the dumb ones that just try to get your money (kangaroo jack, the hot chick, just married)...

YMMV

isnt it Luke Wilson that is in this movie?

I can't wait to see this movie. It looks to be hilarious, and anything with Elisha wearing little clothing is ok in my book

What about 'Bring it On' would make it a smart comedy? I will never understand endless praise people shower on this film, to me it just seemed ok at best.

Woops. My bad. Yeah; I was tired last night and wrote Owen instead of Luke.

FOr the record, I dont mean Bring It On as a "smart comedy", but I'm trying to say that im sick and tired of the studios releasing things like "Hot Chick", "Boys and Girls", "Scooby Doo", "Kung Pow", "Just Married", "Kangaroo Jack", "Not Another Teen Movie" ... basically anything to get the teenage dollar. Its ridiculous. Do they really believe that I want to see Freddie Prinze Jr. in ANYTHING more? No, I dont. I will not see these stupid movies brought out by the studios, and I hope that "Old School" is not overlooked by everyone because they think that is what it is. Its much better.

I totally agree about Kung Pow... I just got a friend totally hooked on it, lent him the dvd and he's watched it five times... brilliant movie.

Anyhow, Old School looks great and like people have been saying, the combination of Cuthbert, Ferrell, Wilson and Vaughn looks like it can't miss!

Sweet, I keep hearing good things about this movie, especially the cast. I can't remember where I read, but the reviewer said that this was the best Vince Vaughn has been in the last few years.

As silly as some might say...I actually enjoyed the Cell.

...but nothing will ever touch Swingers; it is SO MONEY!

LoL...i did give it a try. I wanted to be the "one guy" who found it hilarious. Too bad it wasnt. And im not.

If it has Will Ferrel in it, I'm there.

Even that piece of sludge Zoolander.

Will is just on target in this movie. Makes me sooo glad that he's not screwing around with "serious" roles after leaving me w/ a void at SNL.

Saw a sneak preview tonight and loved it. Very very funny film. The cast is incredible. Vaughn is stellar and Ferrell is hilarious. Luke Wilson was underused and his character was a bit boring but the movie was hilarious.

I thought he actually eclipsed his role in Swingers in Made.

OLD SCHOOL kicked ASS!

Vaughn was hilarious and Will Ferrell really stole the show. This movie is extremely funny and had me laughing for the entire 90 minutes. I thought Luke Wilson was decent in it and goddamn, Elisha Cuthbert rules... not to mention the Wrestling chicks...woo!

Anyhow, if you like big dumb fun comedies (ie. Animal House, Road Trip etc.) than Old SChool is for you... it is damn funny and I can't wait for it to open on Feb. 21 so I can go see it again!

I also saw this one tonight. Pretty damn funny.

One question for those who saw it? What was the song the band was singing at the wedding. I can't remember it for the life of me and it was a damn funny scene

Total Eclipse of the Heart originally by Bonnie Tyler.

Saw it tonight, really funny movie. Vaughn and Ferrell are great in this.


Spoiler:
Can someone explain why Jeremy Piven was cast as the dean? I usually like his movies, but the scenes with him were hard to watch. Not good at all and just an annoying character. His scenes were the only part of the movie i didn't like. Maybe they should have got someone older for that part.

I agree that I think they could have cast someone older,but that would have lost the whole subplot of the dean REALLY wanting them kicked out badly. I think that part played really well in the film.

Vince in Made was the funniest character in cinema history for me.
