They say that if you’re going to write a book then it best have a catchy title.  Unfortunately, the title is the best part of the book.

It’s about the making of the film ” Animal House” and it was written by one of the founders of National Lampoon magazine who was also a producer on the film.

Mostly it’s about the ins and out of how one goes about getting a major studio to bankroll a movie.  It’s pretty much filled with sections on meetings with rich and famous people or flying on private jets to meetings with rich and famous people and going to parties with rich and famous people. Yeah, I get it.  You know lots of rich and famous people.

There is some nice background on the actors that I found interesting but other than that it was one long meeting and party with rich and famous people.

Now this, this is a movie !

Boy, if life were only like this.
