A "No Break in Site" Pick-Me-Up

09/20/2011 12:21


By now everybody is well into their fall semester of college, and the excitement of a fresh, new school year has subsided into a mundane routine. With the next major school break (Thanksgiving) over two months away, I thought that we could all use a little pick-me-up.  And what better way to boost your spirits than with a good laugh? I've compiled a list of ten of the funniest college-themed movies along with some of my favorite quotes (tried to keep them PG-13) from the films. These movies are definitely guilty pleasures, but hey, your brain deserves a break. So why not set up a movie night for your friends and enjoy a mental vacation?

"We have been getting screwed by the system. The system that forces us guys to like girls. All right? We're getting pushed into this. What if we just take the girls out of it? We can have our own system, it's a counter-system. And then, you do things together, you swim, you row, you... boat, you eat, you stink. We can just be guys! You can have sex, you can do it, you know, many guys at a time, but it's not gay."

"All right right, whaddya need? Bottle rockets, dental dams, Redi Wips, term papers?"


Back to School Poster

Back to School (1986)

"Please, try to understand. I don't have the background for this. I mean, the high school I went to, they asked a kid to prove the law of gravity, he threw the teacher out the window!"


Road Trip Poster

Road Trip (2000)

"It's supposed to be a challenge, that's why they call it a shortcut. If it was easy it would just be the way."

"Yeah, cool guys. Let's start this fake college, and then we'll go start a meth lab somewhere. Come on, it's a gateway crime. That's how these things start."


Orange County Poster

"Shaun! I read your story. You used a lot of big words. Great! Good for you! It was a little long, so I didn't read the whole thing, but who cares 'cause I gave you an A!"


Revenge of the Nerds Poster

"Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time."


Animal House Poster

So, there you have it. This movie lineup should keep you entertained and laughing for weeks to come. You may as well enjoy these raunchy films while you can, because once you graduate and become a serious doctor or elementary school teacher it gets a little harder to admit that you actually still watch these movies (even though most everyone else secretly watches them too).
