The Dan Band


This should make some of you feel old and question what you’ve accomplished since graduation: Old School turns 10 this Thursday. Maybe it doesn’t seem like it’s been around that long since you really started appreciating it on DVD, which played on a loop in your first off-campus apartment that you shared with your buds. But yep, the movie debuted in theaters February 21, 2003, coming in second at the box office behind the surprisingly steady Daredevil. And while it never reached #1 or made it to $100 million at the box office or wound up winning any major accolades (it was nominated for two MTV Movie Awards), it’s definitely one of the most memorable releases of that year and one of the most influential comedies of the decade — if not the most. And if you were in college around the time it came out, you should take a decade-later look. I can attest that it’s particularly hilarious if you’re in your mid to late 20s and still trying to hold on to your youth (as I was then) and even funnier once you’re in your mid to late 30s and married with a baby and nostalgic about those days thankful you’ve come so far since then. Let’s have a little reunion with Old School by watching a few favorite clips. Maybe later we’ll celebrate the anniversary by going streaking to Bed, Bath and Beyond if we have time.
