Old School

Chinchilla News - - TELEVISION - FREE TO AIR -

Sun­day, 7MATE, 10pm, MA15+ (2003) Todd Phillips, the di­rec­tor who gave us the up­roar­i­ously funny The Hang­over first brought us this sur­pris­ingly mem­o­rable tale of three 30-some­thing pals (Luke Wil­son, Vince Vaughn and a show-steal­ing Will Fer­rell, right) who tr y to shake off the shack­les of mar­riage and ca­reers by star ting their own col­lege frat house. De­spite the KY Jelly wrestling and in­evitable pants-down pranks, Old School is more than just a slew of fa­mil­iar gross-out gags. Im­bu­ing his char­ac­ters with a sur­pris­ing amount of pathos, Phillips draws per­cep­tive and far­ci­cal laughs from these men in the throes of early mid-life crises.
