Overview
Rodney Dangerfield (Caddyshack, Meet Wally Sparks) makes the grade with this laugh-riot comedy that's in a class of its own! Higher education will never be the same when co-stars Sally Kellerman, Robert Downey, Jr., Sam Kinison, Ned Beatty and more join the maniac as he takes on the brainiacs!

Thornton Melon's (Dangerfield) son is a college misfit, so Thornton's lending some fatherly support...by enrolling as a fellow freshman! Who cares if the owner of the "Tall and Fat" clothing empire never finished high school? Thornton's pockets are deep enough to buy a ticket to class...and hire NASA to do his homework! But when he ticks off his professor – and then steals his girlfriend – Thornton takes things just a little too far. Now, he'll have to hit the books – instead of his bank account – or go back to being the world's wealthiest dropout!

"Dangerfield is sensational" (The Hollywood Reporter) in this howlingly funny comedy that scores an A+!
