We continue through Luke’s DVD collection with two films that helped redefine comedy movies. Anarchic and subversive, the John Landis classic Animal House packs a huge sucker punch to the institutions of pre-Vietnam America. Fletcher spills his guts about why the film means so much to him.

Anchorman started as a film about a bank heist, but via the cutting room floor and the magic of re-shoots, it helped to set the tone for the string of improvised comedies throughout the 2000s (and present – for better or worse).
