Dean Wormer, National Lampoon's Animal House (1978)

Beer barrels shatter windows, rock'n'roll blares out, havoc rules in this sharp, college-campus-of-'62 crack at American Graffiti. An unashamed sense of its own fantasy is coupled with classically mounted slapstick; nostalgia mixes with cynicism in seductive proportions; and John Belushi’s central performance as brain-damaged slob-cum-Thief of Baghdad is wonderful.
