Old School - Febuary 2003


"Old School" is 86 minutes of exactly what you see in the previews. No lofty aspirations, no fancy plot, just a comedy about 30-year olds trying to recapture some college fun with the obligatory side-story about the Dean trying to shut them down. Plenty of harmless, albeit R-rated, fun.

Happily, I was amazed to see not a single excrement joke in the entire movie! I don’t even recall a single bodily function joke. "Old School" goes against the current trend of comedies in general and college movies in particular to go gross. There is plenty of old fashioned low-brow material in "Old School," just not the unnecessarily tasteless stuff that seems so prevalent lately. It’s a relative breath of fresh air.
