    I suppose I'll kick it off.

    While these are both outstanding movies with star studded casts, I have to give the edge to Caddyshack.

    The fact that Caddyshack took a golf setting and turned it into a classic comedy for the ages really made the decision for me. Animal House delivers big funny, but it is set at a frat house where comedic situations are very easy to exploit. The humor in Caddyshack is much more subtle yet just as funny.

    Also I couldnt help but feel that Animal House was a lot more on and off in terms of funnyness, while Caddyshack was more consistent scene to scene.

    Well thats just my opinion, both are hilarious but I give the edge to Caddyshack.

      You might as well be asking me which of my children I like better, but I'll give it a go anyway.

      I also choose Caddyshack. While Animal House is fantastic and Belushi is at his irreverent and oafish best, I just feel that as the OP stated in his review Caddyshack is a little more consistently funny. Murray is absolutely hysterical and steels every scene he is in. Chevy Chase is also fantastic as the carefree playboy. I just feel like there are more laughs on a min for min basis in Caddyshack.

        I would join in on this conversation/debate, but I haven't seen either movie.

        I have no sense of humor.

          You haven't seen either MD?

          I'll give the edge to Caddyshack as well. I have a mole problem here on my property and have actually thought of this movie but I won't be blowing up my yard.

          I also have issues with eating Baby Ruth candybars ever since I saw this movie long ago.

                My vote is that this thread should be in the entertainment forum.... just saying...

                oh, and Animal House pwns. No debate. Caddyshack isn't even close.

                  Animal House gets my vote, too.

                    Caddyshack is the easy win. Also I feel that you actually have to be a golfer to fully appreciate Caddyshack. As one, I appreciate and understand more of the jokes... and feel that it is more humorous that way.

                    Animal House is great as well... and it's the much better filmed, better acted and funnier version of anything made to day involving college, sex and alcohol.

                    Also Easy Mac hands down... Cup o Noodle is gross. Macaroni and Cheese owns all other boxed or quickly made meals.

                      Animal House, without question.

                      Caddyshack is good, but there are some wasted scenes in that movie. Most of the scenes with Noonan's Scottish (or was it Irish?) girlfriend were pretty useless IMO.

                          I'm seeing the problem with the kids here. You've seen so many Animal House knock offs that you no longer appreciate the original, ground breaking film.

                          And while Caddyshack is definitley a classic as far as comedy films go, it's no where near the master piece of comedy that Animal House is.

                          You kids today are so used to the "in your face" slap-stick, no brain, poop jokes, that alot of times you fail to see the more sublte intelligent humor in the "not funny" scenes.
