One of the most successful comedies of all time, Animal House gets its best DVD release yet with this "Double Secret Probation Edition." The film is presented in a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, and Dolby Digital Stereo. English and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a Delta Alumni update (a 20-minute featurette that offers interviews with the characters about where they are now), a making-of documentary that is informative but was included on previous DVD editions of the film, an animated trivia track that supplies information while watching the movie, and a music video by MxPx for the song "Shout." Any big fan of the film will not be ripped off by upgrading to this edition, although the casual fan probably does not need to bother.

The awesome and very philosophical debut of John Belushi. Great comedy, especially in a politically correct age. 'Nough said. Besides, it could cost millions of lives.

25 years after it's release Animal House is still as funny and full of a rare, hidden form of wisdom. The form of wisdom you see imediately, if your vision has not been obscured by society's effort to make you stay put on your couch every evening, watching the news and one of the oh-so-funny shows, that seem to be to so many people's liking. Wonderfully respectless and political incorrect - someday that might come into fashion again, threatening the seemingly good citizens like the perverted Omega brothers - it has given us classic cult lines ad lib like 'The time has come for somebody to put his foot down, and that foot is me!' Watch it, and reconnect with your inner teenager. He is longing for you!

This movie was one of me & my family's all time favorite movies. We evan own it on d.v.d. & we watched it almost every single day of the summer of 2004 for two months untill my mom took it away for a while and for just one night. But we got it back and we are still watching it and we are beginning to watch it every weekend.

As a comedy, i liked it better than Blues Brothers which surprised me since i've been around Blues Brothers longer. John Belushi is great in this! Inspired many comedies around today, especially fraternity comedies like Old School and Van Wilder.

I first watched Animal House in a movie theater when I was around 13 years old. I watched Saturday Night Live every Saturday night and I was a huge fan of John Belushi so I really wanted to see this movie and he was absolutely hilarious as Bluto and the rest of the cast was great too, especially Tim Matheson and Peter Reiger. I had this movie on VHS video tape and when the Double Secret Probation Edition DVD came out I bought the widescreen version and despite not being able to bypass the previews and having to watch approximately about 5 minutes of adds for other movies I'm not sorry I bought the DVD! Seeing it again in it's original widescreen theatrical aspect ratio again after all these years after having to watch it on TV and on video tape in the pan and scan format was a definite plus. It was very nice to see the full Widescreen length!
