'Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon'

Or: How a bunch of eccentric Harvard grads, borderline sociopaths and grade-A assholes completely revolutionized modern comedy. Documentarian Douglas Tirola charts the rise of the National Lampoon, from Ivy-League parody machine to take-no-prisoners magazine to gross-out humor juggernauts. If the mere mention of the names Doug Kenney and Michael O'Donoghue fill you with glee, then you'll flip over the vintage Lampoon vintage; if you don't know these guys, you're about to meet the unsung heroes of American funny business. Either way, see this movie or the dog gets it!
