1. Animal House

This is no doubt the best college movie of all time.  A misfit group of students challenge the dean of the fictional Faber College to one of the most stressful experiences of his tenure. Animal House is one of the most profitable movies of all time outside the box office, garnering an estimated return of more than $141 million in form of videos and DVDS. The film currently holds a 90% “certified fresh” rating on critic website Rotten Tomatoes. It’s considered one of the most entertaining movies of all time.

2. Old School

At second best is Old School, directed by Todd Phillips and distributed by DreamWorks pictures. The film is about three depressed guys who seek to re-live their college days by starting a fraternity, and the tribulations they encounter in doing so. The film has received widespread critical acclaim and praise from both movie critics and audiences. The drama and the thrill in the film keeps one glued to the seat for its entire running time of 92 minutes. With a perfectly picked cast of Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Will Farrell and Snoop Dogg, the film doesn’t disappoint.
