From its humble beginnings as a counterculture magazine to a revered comic institution, National Lampoon’s take-no-prisoners satire forever changed the American comedy landscape. This gleefully irreverent doc follows Lampoon’s meteoric rise to fame that unleashed films like “Animal House” and “Vacation” on the world and helped make the likes of Bill Murray, John Belushi, and Chevy Chase household names. With never-before-seen archival footage, interviews with past luminaries including Christopher Guest, Ivan Reitman, and Chevy Chase, and enough drugs and debauchery to put any rock band biopic to shame, this film offers a rollicking look back at the legacy of this groundbreaking American magazine. In Person: Director Douglas Tirola.
