OLD SCHOOL is an uneven, warm-hearted comedy in which a trio of thirtysomething, white, middle-class American males escape the pressures of adulthood by returning to college: but they aren’t in search of further education – they just want to party, frat-boy style. Mitch, Frank and Beanie exploit loopholes in the rules of (fictional) Harrison College to set up a raucous fraternity house where bacchanalian excess is the order of the day. (…) Will Ferrell is surprisingly good value as the volatile Frank, whose mask of doughy “settled-down” dullness often rapidly slips to reveal the beer-guzzling party-monster lurking beneath. (Neil Young)
