Faber College has one frat house so disreputable it will take anyone. It has a second one full of white, anglo-saxon, rich young men who are so sanctimonious no one can stand them except Dean Wormer. The dean enlists the help of the second frat to get the boys of Delta House off campus. The dean's plan comes into play just before the homecoming parade to end all parades for all time. Written by

After her scandalous tryst, Mrs. Wormer is packed off to "vacation" in Saratoga Springs, New York, presumably to "dry out". However this is almost certainly an inside joke by Chris Miller, for his fellow Dartmouth alumni. In his recollections of college life that had earlier inspired the film, Miller writes of a row of whorehouses sometimes patronized by Dartmouth men in that city. But what this reveals about Mrs. Wormer's Saratoga Springs backstory, can only be speculated on by those not in on the joke. (Babs' gossip to Greg at the hearing might be a clue: "I just bet it was that Eric Stratton!") See more »
When the Omegas are shown waiting for Otter in the Rainbow Motel Chip Diller (Kevin Bacon) is wearing a Faber letterman's sweater with two rings on the sleeve, which would indicate he was a Junior. It is clearly established that in 1962 he is still a Freshman which should have no rings on the sleeve, assuming he could have even earned a letter during his first semester. See more »

At the very end of the credits there is an advertisement: "While in Hollywood, visit Universal Studios." The phrase "(Ask for Babs.)" is below that. See more »
you probably don't like teen sex comedies anyway. If you write more than 10 lines about this classic, you are taking it way too seriously. This is the King of Teen Sex Comedies, period. Anything that follows is/was a pretender or copycat. And I'll never understand why someone would spend so much time and space critiquing a film they don't like, from a genre they obviously don't appreciate. Virtually every actor plays his part realistically. I still get a huge kick out of Belushi's speech about the Germans bombing Pearl Harbor. Or "Do you mind if we dance with yo dates? Or "mine is bigger....my cucumber." Lots of classic lines. Just enjoy it!
