"This movie is so funny! Totally corny, but take it and all other National Lampoon films with a grain of salt. I have fond memories of watching this with my mom and little brother when I was 10 or so. I just saw it again the other night on cable and you definitely need to watch the unedited version to get all the laughs out of it!"

"In 1972 the class gang played a prank on one of the students. 10 years later they are attending there reunion and things start to go wrong when the student they picked on has turned up seeking revenge. they find themselves trapped in the school and well.... watch it to find if if your interested this far.
I picked this up in the cheapie bin, and I suggest you find it there too. It isnt worth much, honestly. It's got some pretty funny moments, but it's not classic funny like Animal House and Vacation. So find it cheap and it's worth it, but dont pay more then ten bucks.
Theres no bonus features or anything, apparently the US version comes with a booklet, but even if ours did I dont think I wouldve done more the flicked through for a glance if that.
It's not dull or boring, it flows rather well, but I predicted the plot a qaurter of the way into the movie, and I think you could too, so the end was pretty much suspected. There is some pretty good effects, espeicely for an 80's film. I heard something about this movie original intended to be a sequel to Animal House, but they obviously didnt do it that way, but the guy who played Ken Dorfman in AH is in this film as a diffrent charactor, as well as a few familuer faces but I dont know there names.
Worthy of a rent, worth the money as long as you dont have to pay alot and yur sure to get a laugh or few out of it!"
I Love Zane Busby!!!

"Wacky! Goofy! Stoooopid!!! Fun! This slasher film parody has me in stitches everytime I watch it. Zane Busby as the cripple who sold her soul to the devil is one of the best character performers of all time. Her facial expressions and side comments crack me up. The late Ann Ramsey (Throw Mama From The Train)as the cafeteria worker brings back memories(?) of mystery meat lunches and creamed whatever that green goop was as part of the high school nutrition program. The few off-color bits in the film are done well and not disgusting or shocking. I've heard and seen worse on late night talk shows! All we needed now was to have Elvira show up as the guidance councillor or school nurse! A job well done on DVD."
Class Reunion Rocks

"National Lampoon's Class Reunion is a murder mystery with a slight twist -- a comic one. The entire movie is a series of funny quips and happenings, making the movie-watcher laugh until their sides ache. Class Reunion is set in an old closed-up school where they are currently having their class reunion, and the people are hilarious, from the snobs to the exchange student from Transylvania. Suddenly people start getting murdered, and the entire party breaks up to find the culprit. The ending is quite a surprise, and I think you will enjoy it as much as I do. There are a few big names in this movie, but at that time they were so young, it's strange to see them. All in all, this movie is great, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to watch it. Compared to all the other National Lampoon movies, I would say it is most like Animal House with it's comedy. I would rate it as one of the classics of the 80's!"

"This movie is very funny. I watched it at least 1000 times when I was 12, and I know it by heart. If something in here doesn't make you laugh, get help."
