Every Comedy with Rodney Dangerfield guarantees us light family humor, where there is no place for vulgarity. Not to say that Rodney plays exemplary comedies, but failures of the script, he is able to compensate for his charisma.

In this case, is not have to complain about any on the sagging scenario, as it the film "Easy money", nor the weak direction, as in "Golf club", yeah and the cast is going decent. The hand and Harold Ramis, which is one of the creators of "Hunters ghosts" and"Groundhog Day". But everything order.

Thornton melon — a successful businessman who is not lucky wife. He is ready to divorce at any moment, so documents on the divorce. it is always in your pocket. Have he took great pride — the son, who achieves many successes of the College. Here and he wanted Thornton to visit your child and be happy for him. However, it turned out that all of her son's success was a lie. So as, the businesses of Thornton not require continual participation and at the same time makes a lot of money, melon-senior decides to enroll in College (by many bribes) to recall their own youth and to help his son succeed.

Jason melon — the complete opposite of his father. Guy tries to learn and not thinking about how to have fun at parties. For is it is very fond of Thornton, after his son — it's the only thing remains of its first of a successful marriage.

Dr. Diane Turner — the teacher of American literature in College which Thornton there are strong feelings. It turns out that they have much in common, they love the work of one writer Kurt Vonnegut (the writer is real and he played this film, his cameo).

However, previously, Diana met with a lecturer in business Philip Barbie, which is now ready to do everything to Thornton melon was kicked out of the College.

Do not forget about other famous actors Burt young, Emmet Walsh and Robert Downey Jr., who also remembered good and well thought-out characters. Again, the negative role was noted by William Zabka. In one of the crowd, you notice the famous composer Danny Elfman.

Surprisingly, the role of the teacher of history would have to Jim Carrey, but its candidacy was rejected because of his age. But this role perfectly coped Sam Kinison. It is a pity that his on-screen time was not so great.

A great movie, which is obliged to please anyone who was a student. Helps to refresh and those sweet nothings that every one of us. Definitely one of the best, if not the best part of Dangerfield.

Rodney Dangerfield that is not only played sort of the Jolly old man, who also was able to achieve something in life and creepy. it disappointed, but and wrote the actual script, I personally reminded of the great and terrible Leslie Nielsen (God rest his heaven). Recalled manner serious approach to situations, facial expressions and charisma. As sorry Back to School so and become the peak of acting career.

Now actually about the film. All we understand that school, College years is the most wonderful and carefree in the life of every person. The Hollywood producers is also understand, because the number of films on this topic is through the roof. Another thing is that often the quality of these pictures are not what is poor, they are miserable almost all the cleaned. Difficult now with the move to remember at least one good modern work that fully would have been devoted to this period of life. Because to find a diamond associated with all of this, it is worth digging around in old Hollywood.

But not enough to be just a funny good Comedy, so as not to get lost in that thread that we are now seeing. The most important thing for picture — to remain relevant not only the time when she dropped, but and over the next decades, how long is it possible.

All this is in movement Alan Metter and even more! It was here that the notorious starred Robert Downey Jr., which is one of the most beloved actors in the nation. It only the person makes the watch all the old paintings with his participation, what we talk about relevance. Yes, it is there is very little, but not point. The main thing that the film is excellent!

One of the best comedies of the ' 80s. Very interesting and mega-cool. The most amazing — she word the current this day! How much it Parallels 21 century. Just not mention.

The humor of the film — well, incredible! How he's really funny and bright. I'm not that stopped to laugh nor minute — don't remember when was the last time such a fun movie watching. In there are so many comic situations, original findings, and fun phrases (which can go consecutive minutes) — does not come off. Rodney Dangerfield — a darling.
