* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Dave Jennings, the professor played by Donald Sutherland: CoolTeacher and a liberating figure much needed in a stuffy environment or a bad, toxic influence without boundaries?

** Pinto has a passed out girl lying in bed directly in front of him, and is considering doing something... ''unsavory'' to her while she's unconscious. Cue the most bizarrely-placed GoodAngelBadAngel gag ever.

** The GoodAngelBadAngel scene where Pinto wonders whether he should have sex with the unconscious, teenaged Clorette has become ''extremely'' cringeworthy since rape, both among teenagers and in colleges, is an even bigger concern. That said, if watched in terms of BlackComedy, the cartoony nature of the gag becomes even ''funnier'' to some viewers.

* HilarityEnsues: Virtually the entire premise of the movie is about members of a college fraternity partying and getting away with anything and everything, things that would never be allowed (or severely curbed instantly) at any college in the United States. In the real world, Faber College would long ago have revoked Delta Tau Chi's charter, all of the students in said fraternity would be either on probation or more likely expelled and Pinto would likely be in prison and -- had it existed in 1962, the time in which the movie was set -- on the sex offender registry forever for having sex with the 13-year-old Clorette [=DePasto=] (and come on, he ''knew'' how old she was!). None of Delta's students would ever be allowed to enroll in any college anywhere -- not even a community college or one whose own academic program is so poor that it's last hair strand is being held up by one tiny microcell -- because of their reputations, and they would be living life as bums, hanging out in bars or pool halls and unable to find work even pushing broom in the bathrooms of the sewer plant, if not in prison trying to avoid being raped by Bubba.

** The scene in which Otter, Boon, Flounder, and Pinto visit a roadhouse bar which turns out to have an exclusively black clientele and, as a result, immediately fear for their lives, is also cringeworthy for many viewers today. It doesn't help that several tall ScaryBlackMan stereotypes proceed to verbally intimidate the Deltas by "asking" to [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt dance with their dates]].
