Overview
Rodney Dangerfield (Caddyshack) stars in the Extra-Curricular Edition of this uproarious college classic "sure to be cherished by all his fans" (Los Angeles Times). "A good-natured potpourri of gags, funny bits, populist sentiment and anti-intellectualism." (The New York Times).

Thornton Melon's (Dangerfield) life isn't making the grade. His wife's a sleazy socialite, he made his fortune being "Tall and Fat" and he never even got a high school diploma. So when he finds his unhappy and unpopular son about to quit college, the solution to all Melon's problems becomes clear...enroll at the school himself! But as the flamboyant father struggles to aid his son, he can't help becoming the college cool kid as he turns the university upside-down and gives academia a lesson in laughter!
