Old School is a comedy motion picture released by DreamWorks SKG in 2003, about three thirty-somethings who seek to re-live their college days by starting a fraternity, and the tribulations they encounter in doing so. The film, which stars Luke Wilson (Mitch), Vince Vaughn (Beanie) and Will Ferrell (Frank), was directed by Todd Phillips and written by Phillips, Scot Armstrong, and Court Crandall.
The movie was envisioned by Phillips as a comedy parallel to the cult-classic National Lampoon's Animal House. It is considered a forerunner to the frat pack since three of its stars are core members of that group.
This film is number 16 on Bravo's list of 100 funniest movies.
