Such a classic movie it is really timeless, I hadn't watched it in years. After Ramis died I read some of the background of the movie and it's almost as entertaining as the movie itself. The same goes for Caddyshack and National Lampoons Vacation all have pretty funny backstories

ill see if I can find the video where they talk about the time the cast basically ended up in a brawl at a frat house party on the Eugene Oregon campus. I swear they sounded prouder of the fight than the movie itself.

Some of it is listed on its Wikipedia page, which lists deleted scenes it's a shame Id love to see those deleted scenes.



en.wikipedia.org...

The film, along with 1977's The Kentucky Fried Movie, also directed by Landis, was largely responsible for defining and launching the gross out film genre, which became one of Hollywood's staples.[5] In 2001, the United States Library of Congress deemed Animal House "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. It was No. 1 on Bravo's "100 Funniest Movies". It was No. 36 on AFI's "100 Years... 100 Laughs" list of the 100 best American comedies. In 2008, Empire magazine selected it as No. 279 of "The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time".

University of Oregon students got haircuts appear as extras. Not knowing the story, they were bemused to see a horse being led into Johnson Hall.[25] Although the cast members were admonished against mixing with the college students,[5] one night, some girls invited several of the cast to a fraternity party; assuming the invitation had been made with the knowledge of the fraternity, the actors arrived and were initially greeted coldly which soon turned to open hostility.[7] It was obvious the group was not welcome, and as they were leaving, Widdoes threw a cup of beer at a group of drunk Oregon Ducks football players and a melee "like a scene from the movie"[5] broke out. Tim Matheson, Bruce McGill, Peter Riegert, and Widdoes narrowly escaped, with McGill suffering a black eye and Widdoes getting several teeth broken or knocked out.[7]
