Back to School ()

directed by
featuring Rodney Dangerfield, Sally Kellerman, Burt Young, Keith Gordon, M. Emmet Walsh, Robert Downey, Jr.

Self-made wealthy guy Thornton Melon (Rodney Dangerfield) decides he needs a better education -- and also to spend some time away from his cheating new wife. Thornton joins his son, Jason (Keith Gordon) at college. Dad hopes to gain his son's respect (isn't that always Dangerfield's motivation?), while his son tries to fit in with his snobbish and brutish fellow students. English professor Diane Turner (Sally Kellerman) forms a strong bond with Thornton, encouraging both father and son to stick out their first year despite all odds. The finale involves some slapstick at the swimming pool diving board, and the obligatory commencement address delivered by Dangerfield, who proves that he can crack jokes without tugging at his tie. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

Laugh Out Loud Funny!

by Geraldine on Feb 16, 2010

This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Start to finish a really great comedy. Buy it, you won't be sorry. This is Rodney at his best.

Rodney Dangerfield was great!

by Oregonian on Jun 18, 2009

I just saw this and loved Rodney Dangerfield's acting in this! THe other cast members - Sally Kellerman, Burt Young, Keith Gordon, M. Emmet Walsh and Robert Downey, Jr. were also very good. Director Alan Metter knew how to capture Dangerfield's quality and came up - THumbs Up!
