As others have stated, not being able to skip the adds at the beginning of the DVD is a poor marketing decision. They did the same with American Wedding, but at least, I can hit stop on my DVD player to stop the DVD, whereas with Animal House, I have to turn off my DVD player. Very poor.
I have already written to Universal Studios about my displeasure with their decision for both Animal House and American Wedding and have informed them that unless they change their tactics, I refuse to purchase another Universal DVD release and that hundreds of other purchasers feel the same, based on reviews at Amazon.com.
Stay away from this if you absolutely feel that not being able to skip the adds is wrong. Otherwise, be prepared to sit through 5+ minutes of commercials for other Universal movies. Your best bet is to go make some popcorn and come back. At that point, it should be done and then you can enjoy this excellent, funny parody of life in a frat house in the late 60s.
Toga! Toga! Toga!
Could not wait to watch the DVD:
- HEY! What's with all the commercials?
- WHERE did I leave the remote?
- WHY isn't remote control working? SMACK, SMACK, SLAM, SMACK!
- WAIT a minute, the remote is working. The DVD must be locked!
WOW! What jerk thought up this new torture?
It's one thing if you decide to watch the previews.
This is just cruel...
I wish I had read the other reviews before buying this DVD.
My excitement was dead by the time the movie started.
TWO THUMBS WAY DOWN ON THIS DVD...
Animal House is definitely a classic, although I agree with those who've commented that it hasn't spawned anything particularly positive. Still, the movie on it's own terms is a riot, and I'd rate it about four and a half stars. So buy a used copy of the out-of-print original Collector's Edition (with the metallic blue cover) either here on Amazon or on eBay. But this particular version needs to be buried forever with the ground salted above it.
