I Grew Up Thinking #7 Was a Documentary

9 Worst Cinematic Portrayals of College Life

Despite Belushi's picture, no mention is made of ANIMAL HOUSE? One assumes that's because of its dead-on accuracy about college life.

I was expecting Animal House, myself, but as you say, it was 100% accurate. Judy still laughs about how parts of it reflect exactly what I told her about my own experiences.

Probably the truest moment is when the college English professor says, "Don't write this down, but I find Milton boring too."

True story. I am back working at my undergraduate college. In fact, across the street from the dorm room where I lived as a freshman. There is a poster of Bluto in the window of the room where I lived with my best friend -- who looked just like Blutarski.

Animal House IS a documentary. I was there. At least in spirit.

Hey, I liked BACK TO SCHOOL. Anything with Rodney (no matter how ridiculous) can't be all bad.

My favorite scene was when he "fired" Kurt Vonnegut.

And there was the hot tub scene:

Thornton Melon: What's your favorite subject?
Bubbles: Poetry.
Thornton Melon: Really? Well, maybe you can help me straighten out my Longfellow.

I liked the scene with Sam Kinison.

Rodney: How about going out tonight?

Sally Kellerman (I think): Sorry, I can't tonight; I have class.

Rodney: Tomorrow night?

Sally: Sorry, I have class.

Rodney: Well, why don't you call me when you got no class.

/I laugh every time.
