Old School

MOVIE:  Old School

NUTSHELL:  Uber-silly thing about a jilted boyfriend who moves into a house by the university and, due to rezoning, needs to be sanctioned by the University and do college-related stuff. So he and his middle-aged buddies decide to start a fraternity. This makes perfect sense to me, actually.

GOOD THINGS:  Luke Wilson, Will Farrell, Vince Vaughn doing the Vince Vaughn thing, Hottie Elisha Cuthbert, Sara Tanaka, funny parts

BAD THINGS:  Jeremy Piven doing the Jeremy Piven thing, Juliette Lewis, cl*wns, strung together script that sort of phones it in in between funny parts

FEATURES:  Craig Kilborn, Ellen Pompeo, Andy Dick in a Davy Jones wig, Seann William Scott in a Dirt Boy wig, James Carville, Leah Remini, Snoop Dogg, and Patrick Cranshaw as Blue

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Well there’s gross stuff and people getting their bits pulled off but it could have been a lot worse.

NOTABLE:  PCU was less than 10 years ago and Jeremy Piven is already the Dean?!?

BEST PART:  The Athletic competition

BEST LINE:  Love, it’s a mother fucker, huh? -or- We are going to get so much ass here, it’s going to be sick. I’m talking like crazy boy band ass.

CROWNS:  3 out of 5
