"You shouldn't take life too seriously. You'll never get out alive."

#09 - ROAD TRIP [2000]

"Think about it, Josh, you're in college. The window of opportunity to drink and do drugs and take advantage of young girls is getting smaller by the day."

#08 - PCU [1994]
PCU [1994] Image

"No, I'm not talking about human sacrifice . . . I'm talking about something we used to do every Saturday night as a matter of principle. Here's a hint: legions of hand-stamped meatheads and 'Coed Naked' lacrosse T-shirts power chugging watered-down meister chow, regurgitating on the blue-matted floor . . ."

#07 - HORSE FEATHERS [1932]

"Why don't you go home to your wife? I'll tell you what, I'll go home to your wife, and outside of the improvement she'll never know the difference."


—"And I always say that to love yourself is the beginning of a life-long romance. And after watching you, I know that you and you will be happy together."

—"Just a minute, sweetheart. I don't recall dismissing you."

—"You rude, discourteous egomaniac!"

—"You're crazy about me, right? And I can understand it. Only this morning, looking in the mirror before shaving, I enjoyed seeing what I saw so much I couldn't tear myself away."

#05 - THE SURE THING [1985]
THE SURE THING [1985] Image

"What the hell's wrong with being stupid once in awhile? Does everything you do always have to be sensible? . . . Didn't you ever get really shitfaced and maybe make a complete fool of yourself and still have an excellent time?"

#04 - BACK TO SCHOOL [1986]
BACK TO SCHOOL [1986] Image

"Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until somebody passes out. And then bring one every 10 minutes."


—"Wait, would you rather live in the ascendancy of a civilization or during its decline?"

—"Poindexter, do you wanna fuck, or not?"


#02 - OLD SCHOOL [2003]
OLD SCHOOL [2003] Image

"Well, uh I guess I, deep down, am feeling a little confused. I mean, suddenly you get married and you're supposed to be this entirely different guy. I don't feel different. I mean, take yesterday for example. We were out at the Olive Garden for dinner, which was lovely. And uh, I happen to look over at a certain point during the meal and see a waitress taking an order, and I found myself wondering what color her underpants might be. Her panties. Uh, odds are they are probably basic white, cotton, underpants. But I sort of think well maybe they're silk panties, maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about . . ."

#01 - ANIMAL HOUSE [1978]
ANIMAL HOUSE [1978] Image

—"What the fuck happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let is be the worst. 'Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble.' Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedemeyer . . ."

—"Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part."

Bit of a dodgy top ten in honesty

fargo44 - 2009-01-12 12:22:50

And the majority of it is crap!!

Barry Pegg - 2009-01-12 13:18:42

What? Not "Idiocracy?"

steven w. - 2009-01-12 15:21:20

American Pie 2

davfe - 2009-01-12 17:28:41

Shittest. Top 10. Ever.

Trav - 2009-01-12 17:41:27

You're not gonna want to hear it, but too bad cause I call it like I see it. Animal House SUCKS. Possibly the most overrated movie ever. I didn't laugh once, and I have no desire to ever watch it again. And the whole list is pretty weak, with few exceptions.

Xavier - 2009-01-12 17:53:19

No Grease?

Truth - 2009-01-12 17:59:50

Nothing is worse than that American Pie comment above mine. Someone needs to drag you out in the street and have you killed, sir.

Cullin - 2009-01-12 18:45:33

I was pleasantly surprised to see Horse Feathers on there, great movie. And Nutty Professor, though not nearly as good. tGT.. ...spread the word...

no... - 2009-01-12 18:54:41


Matt d. - 2009-01-12 20:21:13

how would idiocracy work, its not a college movie...

Cocky J. Doody - 2009-01-12 20:29:02

I had to clean a lot of baby poo today and I'm a bit tired of your list since it didn't include the top line of all time, "Vuntz I had a kendy store, bizniss vas so bad; I asked mein vife vat to do and dis is vat she said: Take yourself some kerosene, pour it on de floor, take a match, give a scratch, No more kendy store! Hey!" From the unmade, undistributed and unwatched great movie, "Life on Teller Avenue" by the auteur, Freddy Bendell

what - 2009-01-12 23:48:36

how the fuck can you say these movies are crap? have you been to college? these are classic examples of hilarious college antics

3BallJosh - 2009-01-13 01:13:55

Real Genious should have been in there somewhere

S. Mercy - 2009-01-13 03:52:56

you guys are dumb, these movies are college comedies! Idiocracy is a good movie, but not a college movie and neither is American Pie 2! Its about the friends getting together over the summer after a year of college.

Anonymous - 2009-01-13 04:16:37

DAZED and CONFUSED!?!?!?!!?

FuzzBall - 2009-01-13 11:00:59

Nah, Dazed and Confused is the last day of High School, again, not related.

Ajaxalation - 2009-01-13 19:11:18

whoever the hell said animal house isn't funny is a fucking faggot. How is it not funny? Any movie that has a guy play "William Tells Overture" ON HIS WINDPIPE (that's your throat), is a damned funny-ass movie. -"Guess what I am." ...mashed potatoes blah, blah, blah... -"I'm a zit!" How the FUCK is that not funny, seriously!?!?! And who cares if it's not your favorite top ten, if you don't like it go make your own!Because then you'll have one that you can like! Regardless of this guys order he put them in they're all awesome movies.

krepple - 2009-01-14 03:02:30

top ten FAIL!

eliott - 2009-01-16 01:26:08

If you don't like Animal House then gtfo. That not only makes you unqualified to ever comment about a movie list, but it also makes you a worthless human being. Go out and get a John Belushi poster, maybe the one where he's wearing the sweater that says "College" and pray to him every day for forgiveness.

talia - 2009-01-17 11:58:59

PCU should've been higher up.

Dude - 2009-01-19 08:00:31

What about how high??? Thats a funny cult movie about college...

yo - 2009-01-21 11:15:31

You are actually all dumbasses... well except for the people that are calling u dumbasses. American Pie 2 is not a college movie, neither is Dazed and Confused. Did u see either of them or are u just complaining for no reason? HOW HIGH?!?! Actually the least funny movie of all time. Seriously, you people suck, the list isn't perfect, but its fine

Reclaimer - 2009-01-21 12:30:38

Totally agree the Real Genius should be here. Watch the original Nutty Professor. It's much funnier than the Eddie Murphy one, but I wouldn't call it a college comedy.

Samantha - 2009-01-21 21:57:39

The only real problem I have with the list is that I think Van Wylder should be much higher, like number 2. I haven't been in college for 7 years or paid for tuition off my ungodly rich father, but Van Wylder is the most like my college experiences thus far.

Adam - 2009-01-23 17:58:26

How did no one suggest Accepted? Any movie that has Lewis Black as dean of a college deserves to be on this list.

Kat - 2009-02-16 18:07:22

Xavier, hate to tell you this, but Grease is a high school movie.

golden_parachute - 2009-02-17 00:07:05

i think slackers with devon sawa makes a solid top 5.

JCBC - 2009-04-01 15:58:03

Where is Ferris Bueller's Day Off???

Thedude - 2009-04-02 13:15:59

First of all this list does blow MASSIVE black cock just on the principal that it was more that likely thrown together in one minute, however, there are good movies on here some crappy ones and some I haven't seen. NONE THE LESS!! The list sucks. I agree that Animal House is overrated, BUT, I do think it's a pretty good movie. How High is a great movie you cunt. Just cause you're racist doesn't mean you have to push your black hating views on the rest of us. It's 2009, get with it man. If you are a black man and said that you don't like How High well then that is fine. Everyone feel free to angrily reply. You fuckers who have nothing better to do with your life than post comments on the most random shit such as this list. I fell victim to posting about it merely because I woke up with a great hangover this morning and found my roommate's computer and the first thing I saw was this list. I must say reading these retarded comments sure as hell didn't make my hangover better. Also as a disclaimer please forgive the careless grammar mistakes. Peace

Juttin Pants - 2009-04-29 13:33:46

JCBC. Ferris Buehler was also a high school movie. don't remember a professor or dean in the movie. Just Ben Stein and that orange haired douche who's name escapes me right now.

Jerry Atrick - 2009-06-11 01:03:20

What? No Showgirls?

ryan - 2009-07-28 14:24:40

pretty sure real genius was a private high school. accepted was a decent call. @thedude: this list isn't racist, that post was hilarious bc any move with method man and redman is automatically horrible unless you're actually high, then we'll call it a draw. if you want a good college movie with black people in it the add "the program" and call it a day.

yup - 2009-08-13 05:43:40

Sorry, my thinking tells me How high can be just as equal to that of Harold & Kumar. Yeah all locations filmed on campus- every scene a mary j reference... just not sure about it being college reminiscent unless you haven't yet found a new approach to getting through school since freshmen year.. of high school.

... - 2010-06-20 20:18:13

what is this 1920

Pazma - 2012-09-16 08:18:26

You guys are all tools, how can you have a college movie list without The Matrix or Breaking Bad?

Jacob - 2012-11-12 17:28:29

Apparently no one viewing this website understands what a "college movie" is all of these are for the douche bag that said Grease, you're kidding me right?

Stupid Pete - 2015-10-19 15:40:44

PCU is the best one of all of those.

Bob - 2016-07-05 13:16:26

Wow the people commenting on this are probably the stupidist people on the internet or the worlds greatest trolls.
