Tap those kegs, dry off the pong balls, and get the stereos ready… We’re going back to college, kids! From getting fratty with Zac Efron and Dave Franco in Neighbors, to dancing all night at Gatsby’s larger than life extravaganzas, or making a pact with high school buddies to finally lose that v-card like in American Pie, the beauty of these films is that they allow us to live through these party animals, and better yet, reminisce about our favorite times being them.
Whether it was one last chance at gathering up the courage to talk to the girl of your dreams like Preston Meyers in Can’t Hardly Wait, an opportunity to prove to the world wrong about being social rejects like the House Bunny crew, or an attempt at simply going where no party has EVER gone before like Project X, these movies take us straight back to our favorite fraternity basement in college or parents’ house in high school.
We’re reliving all of the greatest music, outfits, and boozy hook-ups. This party’s an open house, baby!
