I was lucky enough to not only get to college, but to be able to spend quite a long time their getting more than one degree. While I was the I pledged a fraternity, and did my fair share of partying. Even though we all know that you can’t always believe everything you see in the movies. I can assure you that a lot of the films about the unbelievable parties that go on at college, especially fraternity parties, are actually not that far off. Some of my best and wildest memories are from time spent at school with my frat brothers and friends, and of course, girls, lots of girls. When I watch some of my favorite college party films I can’t help but reminisce about my own fun. Whether you shared some of these moments or not, anyone can enjoy the films that have entertained the generations. Here is my list of the best films for and about college life, fraternities, and partying. Take a look, have fun, and see what you think.
#6 – Road Trip (2000)
Like many couples at school, Josh and Tiffany have been in love since they were in grade-school. But at college, you often meet new people, like Beth, who is very hard to ignore and, of course, right there at college with Josh. I’m sure you can guess what happens, they hook up. Enter the twisty 70’s sitcom plot! They make a videotape at the same time Josh plans to send a video to Tiffany about his life at college. You don’t have to be a genius to figure out what comes next, and why a race across country is needed to stop the process. Fun, and raucous, this film still is good enough to make it to the list.
#5 – Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
Director: Jeff Kanew
Writers: Tim Metcalfe, Miguel Tejada-Flores
Stars: Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards, Timothy Busfield, Andrew Cassese
This film is almost legendary, bringing the title of Nerd to great heights. OK, so the movie exploits just about every possible stereotype imaginable of student life, it is still one of the funniest films in history. Even just taking into account the ridiculousness of some of the plot-points, like a group of geeky students wanting to form their own local fraternity, and finding out the only National charter that they can even come close to is an all-black organization – this film still ranks high in fun. The final defeat of the jock fraternity is priceless and not soon forgotten. NNNeeeerrrrddddsss!
