  1. I did not see any of those movies you mentioned, but thank you, because I will be downloading it and watching them too. My favorite 80s movie (although it was not a college setting, but a high school setting) was “Zapped” which starred Scott Baio and Willie Aames.

  2. I have never seen any of those. I will have to make it a point to see them.

  3. Animal House is a classic. It’s what I think of whenever I think of college movies!

  4. Van Wilder always made me laugh! I can’t say I’ve seen the other ones though, I’ll have to check them out!

  5. My father loved Back to School. I will watch it from time to time just to remember him laughing. I have not seen or heard of the other two, I need to check them out.

  6. These bring back some great memories. I would have to say that Animal House really sticks out for me. It was released the year after I graduated from college and I remember how much fun it was to watch it at the time. I know my husband and I have seen it several times since.

  7. These are great college movies. Animal House was one of my favorites when i was growing up.

  8. All the movies are pretty new to me as I have not watched any of them. But looks like a great collection of movies that you could watch with your family. Will check them out.
