The original, and still the best...
Perhaps it is the greatest movie (comedy) of all time, some could argue that point. However, I believe that it is the greatest comedy movie that will ever be made. This is a truly "funny" movie. The wonderful, colorful writing is brought to life by a wonderful cast. In turn, the incredible talent of the cast is tapped to the fullest extent by John Landis' superb comedic genius. The movie is the greatest because it the original. This statement does seem incredibly cliche, and I hear it use about many movies today. But "Animal House" is the real deal. This true masterpiece didn't rely to heavily on sight gags, shock value, plain old jokes, or good old slap stick. Instead, this movie masterfully combined the many different aspects of comedy into one coherent film. Although all writers and directors borrow from this classic film, none will ever top the achievement of Douglas Kenney, Harold Ramis, and John Landis.
