      Audience Member I worked on KING FRAT (1979) as a production assistant for 5 weeks, at $250.00 a week, good money in 1979. I also appear in the opening credits, mooning people, bathtub scene, and "menacingly wielding baseball bats" in "Frat Initiation" scene. This was the first film I worked on, it was a lot of fun. Before KING FRAT, I was a Corporal in the US Marines. After KING FRAT, I earned a BA in film production at Temple University. Then a 22 year career as a Thoroughbred racehorse Trainer, and for the last 20 years, have been a cop. I look back on KING FRAT as a fun "lark" in my youth. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member If you found ANIMAL HOUSE a bit too high-brow for your tastes, strap in for some truly cartoonishly over the top sophomoric moments in this one, but it 'does what it says on the tin' as the saying goes, so I kinda knew what I was in for when I pressed play on the DVD. Rental. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the first films, that I saw on video back in the early 80's. Couldn't really remember much of it, so I watched it again. Can't believe what a poor poor film this actually is! I would of loved to give this a glowing review. But it wasn't meant to be. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member the movie has a fart competition in... A+++ Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member At the Yellowstream University, there is a strong rivalry between two of the college fraternities. When they are not mooning everyone they pass and throwing garbage on the lawns of rival frats, the members of the Pi Kappa Delta fraternity are mainly interested in drinking and... well, drinking. When a campus- wide farting contest is announced, J.J. 'Gross-Out' Gumbroski (John Distanti), one of the Deltas, is all too eager to stand up, bend over and defend the honor of his fraternity and win the prize money. I saw "King Frat" in the early 80s and it is a shameless rip off of "Animal House" which came out a year earlier. John Disantis character Gross-Out is of course an extremely bleak Bluto Blutarsky rip off. And one can find so many other things in "King Frat" that points in the direction of "Animal House", and the former is hardly close to the greatness of the latter. But, in some weird way I did slightly enjoy reseeing the idiocy of the Pi Kappa Deltas. Catchy title song as well. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Amazingly inept for a frat comedy. You'd think the jokes would write themselves, but this movie proves that this just isn't the case. I laughed exactly once during the whole movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
