I picked this up in the cheapie bin, and I suggest you find it there too. It isnt worth much, honestly. It's got some pretty funny moments, but it's not classic funny like Animal House and Vacation. So find it cheap and it's worth it, but dont pay more then ten bucks.
Theres no bonus features or anything, apparently the US version comes with a booklet, but even if ours did I dont think I wouldve done more the flicked through for a glance if that.
It's not dull or boring, it flows rather well, but I predicted the plot a qaurter of the way into the movie, and I think you could too, so the end was pretty much suspected. There is some pretty good effects, espeicely for an 80's film. I heard something about this movie original intended to be a sequel to Animal House, but they obviously didnt do it that way, but the guy who played Ken Dorfman in AH is in this film as a diffrent charactor, as well as a few familuer faces but I dont know there names.
Worthy of a rent, worth the money as long as you dont have to pay alot and yur sure to get a laugh or few out of it!
The plot concerns a troubled man named Walter that was the butt of a cruel prank by the high school seniors, and now at the 10-year high school reunion, Walter has escaped from the loony bin to seek revenge. One of the best parts of the movie is recognizing all of the high school stereotypes, twisted gleefully by Hughes as he has done so many times (Weird Science, Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, the list goes on), like the preppy class president, the equally preppy prude, the blind girl (why not?), the guy no one remembers (Gary...something), the horny fat guy (played with gusto by Stephen "Flounder" Furst himself), and... the crippled chick that sold her soul to the Devil to be cured so now can produce fire. I remember someone like that at my high school, except she could produce ice.
Anyway, for any Lampoon fans that weep for its future, look at this movie from its past and hope to God they can start making good movies again.
