King Frat

1979, R, 82 min. Directed by Ken Wiederhorn. Starring Dan Fitzgerald, Dan Chandler, John DiSanti.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., June 7, 2002

This comedy gross-out was released a year after National Lampoon's Animal House – upping the gratuitous flesh and fart quotient but minus the various talents – mostly Belushi – that made roar.
