15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Animal House

They don't make college movies like this anymore. Or at least they try, with a small amount of effort.

Legendary film critic Roger Ebert placed Animal House on his 10 best list of 1978, the only National Lampoon film to have received this honour. Little surprise being as the movie is not only crack-a-rib-laughing-and-not-even-care funny, but is also one of the most influential comedies of all time. 

Our small tribute comes in the form of 15 things you (probably) didn't know about it.
