Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Mitch, Frank and Beanie have all reached a crossroads in their lives. They can choose to be responsible adults, with wives, families and steady jobs…or they can postpone adulthood in favor of the reckless abandon of frat house living with all of the fun, and none of the education. No contest.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - A very juvenile, goofy, silly, crazy teen comedy. It's also very sexual and vulgar. It's obviously just for teens and young adults, primarily males.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Above Average "Under Reitman's deanship, Ferrell lets his freak flag fly and Vaughn unlooses a notably funny, light-on-his-feet lunkheadedness as a successful entrepreneur leashed by a wife (Leah Remini) and kids.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "...low-brow, moronic to a fault, and occasionally side-splittingly funny. If the viewer's intention is to have a few laughs, this movie gets a passing grade. In an era when a viewer is lucky to find one or two humorous moments during the course of a 90-minute so-called "comedy," Old School delivers with surprising effectiveness. If you're looking for a more complete cinematic experience, Old School has a few too many absences.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Poor "This is not a funny movie, although it has a few good scenes and some nice work by Ferrell as an apparently compulsive nudist. The movie has been slapped together by director Todd Phillips, who careens from scene to scene without it occurring to him that humor benefits from characterization...''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "The movie is so loosely structured that even James Carville shows up in one scene. As a result, the throwaway bits (a wedding singer warbling obscenities, a deliciously nasty gag during the end credits) tend to be good for guffaws in a way the overall movie is not.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Opinions will be collected opening weekend and will usually be worked up and online by Monday or Tuesday following a Friday opening. We are sometimes able to put on a Saturday Morning Update, so if you get a chance to check the site Saturday you may be able to see how the opinions came in Friday night. Go to Movies at Theaters and check the "What's Worth Watching" section.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
If you're young and you enjoy movies like Animal House, I'm confident you will enjoy Old School very much. If you're older, but still have a fondness for well done movies of the Animal House genre, you will likely find several satisfying moments.
