Review: In 'S---house,' a college coming-of-age comedy

Oct. 13, 2020 9:13 AM EDT

You would assume a college comedy with the unprintable title of “S—-house” to be another sad, low-brow retread of “Animal House.” You would almost bet on it. But 22-year-old Cooper Raiff's is not only not that film at all, it's one of the freshest college movies in years, a...
