I’m a big fan of documentaries and this one by Douglas Tirola is terrific! I was not aware of all the links between National Lampoon, Second City, SNL, Animal House and even The Simpsons. Includes great interviews with Judd Apatow, Kevin Bacon, John Belushi, John Landis, John Hughes, Ivan Reitman, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner and Billy Bob Thornton among others.
It’s available on Netflix but I caught it this week at IFC in NYC.
See trailer below.
