DO COLLEGE KIDS KNOW 70s COMEDY MOVIES? (REACT: Do They Know It?)


– What is the name of this movie?! – Steve Martin in…
Pantless in Seattle. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) Today, we’re gonna see
how well you know some popular ’70s comedy movies.
– ’70s comedy movies, okay. I’m a fan of older flicks. – I feel like I watched a lot
of them as a little kid, ’cause that’s when my parents
just kind of showed me whatever they liked.
So I might have some just in the deepest recesses
of my mind. – Literally nothing
is coming to mind. So I’ll probably do
pretty horrible at this. – I see this going either really,
really well or really, really badly, and I don’t feel like there’s
gonna be that much of an in-between in there. – Let’s give it a shot!
Give ’em the good ol’ Princeton try. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Here’s your first movie
from 1978. Do you know it? – Mm. No. – I have no idea. I’ve never
seen this poster before. – No, I have no idea. It’s kind of like a frat boy
type of thing going on. – “Comedy in a class of its own.”
Blank “is an educational film.” This is Animal House. – I’m trying to think what was
the first big college movie. Like, what inspired American Pie
and everything else? Animal House? – I definitely have never seen this,
but I have a guess. Is it Animal House? – I feel like this might
be Animal House. – Oh! Yup. Yeah, I got it.
Animal House. – (FBE) This is the poster for…
– Animal House. Oh, that’s weird.
I’ve heard of this. – Okay, I’ve heard of this,
but I’ve never seen it. – I thought it came out
in the ’80s. I didn’t know. Oh god. All right.
And I’ve seen this. – This film is super hilarious. And if people haven’t
watched it already, you totally should, especially
if you’re a university student. – (FBE) So John Belushi
had been on SNL for three years. This was his big screen debut.
He would film Animal House Monday through Wednesday,
and then would fly back to NYC to film SNL Thursday
through Saturday night. – Oh my god.
That’s a full schedule. – I’m like, “I’m so tired” when I have
something three days in a row. I’m just like, “It’s a lot, you guys.” – As long as you’re passionate
about the projects, that’s all that matters,
’cause if it’s something you’re gonna dread,
you’re gonna be so exhausted. But if you’re having fun,
it’s worth it. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) So here is another.
Do you recognize this one? – Mel Brooks.
It doesn’t even look like a comedy that much
from the poster. – I have no idea what this is.
This is a rated R film. Huh. Mel Brooks. – Mel Brooks is a cowboy. – I see some
Native Americans, cowboys… Is there a movie like
Cowboys in Space or something? I don’t know. That’s my guess.
Cowboys in Space! – I feel like it’s Blazing Saddles,
but I might be wrong. – Blazing Saddles.
– (FBE) This is the poster for… – (gasps) Blazing Saddles.
Okay, I’ve heard of that. – I’ve heard of it before,
just never seen it. – I have heard the title before,
and that is it. – I think I’ve heard them mention that
in That ’70s Show, and I was like, oh, that’s
an interesting title for a movie. And that’s all I’ve thought of it. – I know that there is
one famous scene in there. It’s the first time a fart
was ever done on camera. And that was during the beans
around the campfire scene. Never seen the movie, though. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Do you know this one? – Steve Martin. I don’t think I’ve
ever even seen this poster before. – Steve Martin? I didn’t
even recognize him! He looks so different. – Steve Martin in…
Pantless in Seattle. – This looks familiar.
I’ve seen this scene before. – Uhh, The Jerk? – (FBE) So this is a poster for… – Oh, The Jerk.
I’ve never seen this movie. I’ve never heard of this. – Ohh, okay. The Jerk.
I’ve heard of it, but never seen it. – I’ve heard the title for sure,
but this one maybe because it’s a very general title. – I’ve never even heard of that.
He does kind of look like a jerk, though.
He’s not wearing pants. Jerks don’t wear pants.
Polite people were underwear. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Here’s another.
Are you familiar with this one? – The coach is waiting
for his next year. The pitcher’s waiting
for her first bra. The team is waiting for a miracle.
Consider the possibilities. – I have no idea.
I can’t even think of a single sports movie
from the ’70s. – The Sa– It’s not The Sandlot.
And that’s not really a comedy. – It looks like a Sandlot-type movie,
but it’s definitely not The Sandlot. – Is this Bad News Bears? – Um, Bad News Bears.
– Bad News Bears. – (FBE) This is a poster for…
– Oh, the Bad News Bears. Yeah, I’ve never seen
this movie either. – Another movie I have heard
of the title but nothing about. – I’ve seen it, I think,
when I was younger. But it’s not my favorite movie
or anything. – This is actually one
of my favorite movies. This movie
and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off are my two sick day movies, you know?
Whenever I was home from school, Bad News Bears,
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– Another Mel Brooks film that I don’t know.
– Another Mel Brooks film. Now, it seems to be
some sort of Frankenstein. – The first thing that came to mind
was Frankenstein, but he’s wearing a top hat,
so that’s cool. – What the [bleep] is happening
with the dude on right? Is it like a Dr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde type thing? Is it Young Frankenstein?
– Is that Young Frankenstein? – Oh, this is Young Frankenstein. – I do know the title of this one.
This is Young Frankenstein. – (FBE) This is the poster for…
– Young Frankenstein. What? Is there like a young,
adult, elderly Frankenstein? – I don’t think I’ve actually
ever watched it or really heard of it that much, but I think I’ve seen
the name somewhere. – (FBE) So against studio exec wishes,
Mel Brooks shot this film in black and white.
He felt it would better replicate the classic Frankenstein films.
– That’s awesome. Always go for what you want. – So it’s a comedy film
in all black and white, but filmed in the ’70s.
That might be interesting to watch. – I think that was a good idea
for him to do that. You know, to capture
that classic theme with the book and whatnot. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Do you know this one? – Paul Newman, Robert Redford,
Robert Shaw? – “All it takes
is a little confidence.” I don’t think I know
what this film is at all. – Ooh, I don’t know.
I don’t know this one. – “All it takes
is a little confidence.” Uh, Confidence Man. Maybe? No?
I just put two words together. – It looks very ’50s.
I like this type of art, but I don’t know
if I can put a name. – This is almost
definitely a Universal movie, because I was a tour guide there,
and it’s probably the one that won an Oscar
that we’re supposed to know. – What is the name of this movie?! – So this is the poster for…
– The Sting? No. Uh-uh. – The Sting. I have not seen that. – Damn it!
Yes! I’ve heard of that movie. I had to talk about that movie!
(chuckles) But I’ve never seen it. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Here’s your next.
Do you know this one? – “And now at last…”
“Sets the cinema back 900 years”? – Wow, that’s a lot
going on in this picture. “Makes Ben-Hur
look like an epic.” Wasn’t Ben-Hur an epic? – I’ve seen this poster before
in plays, so as long as it’s based off of the play,
is it Spamalot? – Oh my gosh.
“Nominated for 26 Oscars, three Brians, a”– (chuckles)
I fell for that. I totally fell for that. – “Nominated for 26 Oscars,
3 Brians…” What the [bleep] is a Brian?
Something with the words holy grail in it.
Is it Monty Python and the Holy Grail? This is the–
this is the poster for that? – Oh, is this–
I can already tell ’cause of the hand.
Is this Monty Python? – Oh, this is Monty Python
and the Holy Grail. – Monty Python
and the Holy Grail. I know this movie,
because I love this movie. – (FBE) So this is…
– Oh, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Okay.
I’ve heard of Monty Python, but I’ve never seen this,
heard of this, watched this. – Oh my god! That’s exactly what I–
I was like, Monty– I was thinking of Monty Python. – I’ve seen that poster
so many times for Spamalot, but (chuckles) yeah,
I didn’t actually know that it came from this.
– I guess I don’t really know that much about ’70s movies,
’cause I didn’t think that any of these
were from the ’70s. But I feel like comedy
was kind of big in the ’70s. These are some really funny movies. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching

  2. Young Frankenstein is EVERYTHING…watched it as a 16 year old, I’m 26. Will be a movie I will LOVE MY WHOLE LIFE. Kids do yourself a favor and just watch it.🙄.

  3. For the Reactors: Do They Know 70's Comedies
    For the Viewers (at least this one): Try Not to Feel Old Challenge

  4. The Sting was soooo easy to remember – especially for someone who has watched the latest episode of Westworld (S2E01) just three days ago, hahaha!!!

  5. I’m surprised I even knew two of these…
    (Monty Python, off course, and Young Frankenstein)
    please watch those films, they’re amazing😛

  6. I feel so sorry for these kids, deprived of Mel Brooks movies. Your $3 contribution can show Blazing Saddles to a whole classroom. Won't you help? Make the world a better place!

  7. The Sting is a great movie, but it isn't a comedy. Regardless of this, anyone who likes movies at all should see it. It's a fine
    piece of entertainment.

  8. 🚨🚨🚨NEW IDEA!! 🚨🚨🚨
    **College kids guess 2000’s cd album covers!
    Try and guess which artist the album belongs to!!

  9. I knew all of these, wasn't born till the 80's, these are classics they should watch. Of course now a days they would watch these flicks and get all offended and want them banned or something.

  10. The best part was when the talked about Belushi filming Animal House during the week and SNL on the weekends. All these kids were talking about was that John must have really loved the projects to work that hard. It never occurs to them that he could do it because he was coked up most of the time.

  11. The blond haired guy does pretty well in most of these videos, the Metallica shirt girl did pretty good to, I love her….

  12. Monty Python and the Holy Grail this probably the funniest movie ever made. Animal House might be second. Mel Brooks' work (unfortunately) does not really hold up in my mind.

  13. I was born in the 60's so I knew every one of these movies. Classics all. But my favorite on the list would have to be Monty Python & the Holy Grail.

  14. the sting is awesome. also love all of mel brooks films. i grew up on all these films even though i was born in 2000

  15. You should do a Do They Know It for 60's and 70's Tv shows. Like Maude, Sanford and Son, Threes Company, Different Strokes, Good Times, Mork and Mindy. You know, the good stuff.

  16. Blazing Saddles is a movie that can NOT be made today because of its racial undertones….lot of black folks would go ballistic in this day and age!
    In order to understand Monty Python and the Holy Grail, you HAVE to watch the movie Excalibur and know SOMETHING about King Arthur or the jokes will just fly over your head….and that movie got LOTS of them.
    Also Eric need to watch the Blues Brothers I think he'll appreciate it.

  17. Wow, only 1 person had heard of The Sting? Kids, please watch it, you're missing a masterpiece!! Best screenplay I've ever seen.

  18. I watched monty python and the holy grail back wen I was 12 or less, I sure liked this comedic classic for a kid who lived in the 2010s and mid-2000s
