National Lampoon's Animal House Bluto John Belushi

In honor of the 41st anniversary this week of National Lampoon’s Animal House, the uproarious frat comedy that is still vibrant, raunchy, refreshingly un-PC, and hilarious as ever, Universal Pictures has released a “Best of Bluto” video that compiles some of the most memorable scenes by John Belushi‘s iconic and slovenly character.

Watch the 10-minute compilation video here below (note – it contains explicit language).

National Lampoon Presents Are There Any Triggers Here Tonight?

Are There Any Triggers Here Tonight?
iTunes | CD Baby
The Final Edition | NL
Release Date: September 9, 2016

National Lampoon has certainly seen better days; a few decades before they became a brand synonymous with puerile, sophomoric frat boy humor and cheap direct-to-video “comedies,” the Lampoon was a brain trust of America’s boldest and most fearless young satirists who used their incisive, inventive wit to offend, compel, and amuse and who would lay the foundation for some of the great works of modern comedy, from the small screen success of Saturday Night Live to the celluloid classics Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, and This is Spinal Tap.

Animal House

Animal House, the 1978 smash hit comedy which ushered in a new genre at the time in Hollywood known as the “gross-out picture,” was instrumental in making the magazine and brand name National Lampoon more prominent to the mainstream, and made a superstar out of last-of-the-rebels comedic kamikaze pilot, John Belushi, celebrated its 35th Anniversary late last month.

Produced on a small budget, shot up in Oregon for the most part, directed by John Landis, and written by Lampoon stalwarts as Chris Miller, Harold Ramis, and the late Douglas Kenney (who was the first editor of Lampoon and who has a role in the film as “Stork”), Animal House was originally released in the teeming summer of 1978 and surprised everybody by going on to make over $120 million and making a total and complete template of the juvenile delinquents taking on the school system which represents authority kind of comedic narrative that has been going on since The Marx Brothers’ Horsefeathers and probably even earlier.

4th Row Films To Produce National Lampoon Documentary

4th Row Films has announced that they have acquired the rights to develop a feature-length documentary that will share tell the complete story of one of the more beloved banners in comedy history, National Lampoon.

National Lampoon began in 1970 as a comedy magazine, branching out from the Harvard Lampoon (which was started at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1876). Since then, the name has gone on to spawn many books, albums, shows, and of course movies — most notably of which were Animal House and all of the Vacation movies with Chevy Chase and friends. Since those great early days, sadly, many complications, financial troubles, and exchanges in ownership have resulted in the steady decline of quality and a pile of straight-to-DVD movies that don’t deserve to wear the National Lampoon title.

Are We Ready For A Sequel To ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’?

Vacation

It’s being reported that a new movie in the National Lampoon series is now on the way, but it’s not quite the mindless processed generic college movies they have been making the last few years. No, this movie actually isn’t involved with the National Lampoon name at the moment, and will bring us right back to their roots with those lovable simpletons, the Griswold family. This new movie is planning to actually focus on the son in Vacation and its sequels, Rusty, and his family now going on a road trip of their own with references to his old family adventures. Wacky hijinks are sure to ensue.

New Line Cinema is currently meeting with writers to get a script going as soon as possible, and it is noted that places will be left wide open for the main draw Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his wife (Beverly D’Angelo) to appear in some fashion as the now grandparents. The movie is aiming to be more like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Little Miss Sunshine instead of other road trip movie trash like and Are We There Yet? and RV.
