Over the years, the reputation of National Lampoon has suffered. After what many consider to be the magazine's heyday in the mid-70's, they hit the movie business with a bang with the now-legendary Animal House. But corporate buyouts hurt the magazine. Since actor Tim Matheson (who played Otter in Animal House) spearheaded a corporate buyout, and then sold it to Dorf video marketers J2 Communications in an attempt to avoid bankruptcy in 1991, there have been some movie high points, but let's face it -- it's pretty much been downhill since 1989. You might think I'm being a little tough on them all, but before you do, just keep in mind that their next two titles are Jake's Booty Call and Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo. One, Two, Many is set to hit theaters on April 10th, 2008.
