10 Movies About... College Hijinks

10 of my Favorite Movies that revolve around the wacky hijinks of College life.

Real Genius (1985) 
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "But if I stay, what should I do? -- "You get even with Kent. It's a moral imperative" 

Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "WE'VE GOT BUSH!"

Choice Wacky Dialogue: "The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is... they're dead"

Campus Man (1987)
I don't remember any Choice Wacky Dialogue from Campus Man off the top of my head, but the Movie has a lot of College fun. 1987 was the year that felt the most 80s to me. Campus Man is the unadulterated embodiment of it's time. Just look at the poster!

Nobody's Perfect (1990)
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "My venus saw my penis and now the damn thing has come between us"

Threesome (1994)
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "You have the hots for me, I have the hots for him, and sooner or later he's gonna have the hots for you" --Sounds pretty hot to me" 

The Party Animal (1985)
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "I'm like King Midas" Everything I touch turns to poontang!"

Choice Wacky Dialogue: "Sheriff, this is Lanier College calling. There's been a multiple shooting on the campus quadron. Sir, LISTEN! Several students have been shot, kidnapped in a brown van. You better get out here. IT'S HAPPENING. THE PSYCHOPATHS ARE HERE!" 

Killer Party (1986)
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "I myself prefer a big fat cucumber" 

How I Got into College (1989)
How I Got Into College might not go down in history as the best Film ever made, but it's certainly the most College-y Movie on this list. I had fun with it. Plus. Lara Flynn Boyle strikes again!

Oh okay, how about one more? Not an obvious choice, but, I found this Comedy/Drama to be pretty great (one of the very best Films of it's year, actually) and with enough zany Collegiate moments to qualify for this list:

Wonder Boys (2000)
Choice Wacky Dialogue: "Now, that is a big trunk. It holds a tuba, a suitcase, a dead dog, and a garment bag almost perfectly"

I would say my favorite College Hijinks movie is without a single doubt:


It's prank week...and the ghoulies are on the loose!

Another great list, I'd totally forgotten about Threesome. A DTV one I always liked was Voodoo, starring Corey Feldman, about a zombie fraternity.

Gable - I really have to watch Ghoulies 3. I haven't seen it since it came out on VHS, and I don't remember it.

DTV Con - Voodoo! I have seen that. I thought it was kind of a hoot.
