Most of you won't remember this, but there was a time when getting into college was more about taking the first step to a bright future and less about self-inflicted, crippling debt and lifelong lament that someone actually allowed you to major in French Literary Deconstructionism. Get More »

We at NextMovie don't condone drinking to excess. No sir. Nuh-uh. Alcohol is bad, mmkay?

They fall on their faces! They say and do crazy things! (Bless you, Will Ferrell, you are indeed going streaking.) They're far more entertaining -- and infinitely more clever -- than your buddy Joe after he's broken open a bottle of tequila. Get More »
"I have to say my all-time favorite is 'Fletch.' I've gotta start out with 'Fletch.'
"It's a classic one-liner comedy, brilliantly delivered by Chevy Chase. I mean, there's drugs, scandal and Chevy! What else could you want in a comedy?
"And, more recently, I also like 'Old School.' That's a good one.
"I knew it was good about five minutes in, but then it just keeps getting better. I like it when Will Ferrell gets the tranquilizer dart in his neck. Oh my God, that is so funny. I rewound it so many times when I first saw that, I was literally crying I was laughing so hard."
