Old School: An Influential Movie?

A couple weeks ago Slashfilm released a list of the ten most influential films of the last decade that seemed pretty incomplete. One comment I liked was that Old School should have been included on the list, for essentially spawning a generation of “Frat Pack” films and opening the door for Judd Apatow’s sex comedies. Watching Old School again tonight, I have to agree. It was amazing to me just how many lines from this movie are still used on a daily basis. Here are some of my favorites:
  • Sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego…
  • Earmuffs!
  • Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time.
  • Once it hits your lips, it’s so good!
  • We’re going streaking! Through the quad and into the gymnasium!
  • Oh, yeah. Cheeeeese… Didn’t we lock you in the dumpster one time?
  • No. That’s a piece of crap. We stopped selling that six months ago. Nice gesture, though.
  • You’re my boy Blue!
  • Good talk, see you out there
  • If you’re holding this letter you already know.
