    ... I didn't laugh once. Does this movie just not hold up over time or is my sense of humor just warped now in my old age? I first saw Animal house in the mid 80's and watched it again with a group of friends in the early 90's and I seem to remember laughing throughout the movie both of those times. But 25 years later I couldn't find a single laugh in the movie & was kind of disappointed.

    There were a couple of funny moments. Belushi was not funny at all and way over the top.

    That's not at all surprising. Listening to the old bits like gay Star Trek/Robocop etc, mama lookaboobooday, they're terribly unfunny. Just talking about news of the day and busting balls with no schtick is entertaining to listen to, but the bits and the entire channel 9 show are comedy death.
