It’s time for the milestone 50th episode of Drinking With…Steven McCash, and I personally can’t think of a better movie to discuss to celebrate the occasion than 2003’s Old School. We’ve done a handful of comedies throughout our run on this show, and it’s safe to say that not all of them hold up to the evaluations that teenage Stoney gave them. That wasn’t the case for this flick – I found myself laughing hysterically just like I did back in the good old days. Sure, there are certainly some moments and jokes in this movie that you couldn’t get away with in 2024, but that’s the case with every old movie you fire up these days. The humor in it is sophomoric, but they don’t overdo it the way I felt Animal House did, where it just felt like one big prank sketch. The thing that made Old School stand out in the pantheon of great comedies was that it had a little bit of heart to it – there was real tension between the characters, and they even sprinkled in a little love interest. I don’t mean to make it sound as though Old School is some Scorsesian epic. I just mean to illustrate how those aspects of this movie make it feel a little more timeless than other comedies. That’s something I don’t think I fully appreciated watching this movie for the first time as a teenager.

The star of the show is still that chemistry between Will Ferrell, Luke Wilson, and Vince Vaughn. I don’t know how many of the one-liners were actually scripted and how much of the movie was improvised from these dudes just riffing off of one another, but the movie is still highly quotable. From “you’re my boy, Blue” to “I don’t know if we’ll have enough time,” this movie has resonated within my psyche. I can’t shake it. To this day, I still catch myself quoting Frank the Tank.

Speaking of, this episode’s themed cocktail is named the ‘Frank the Tank,’ and it is a banger. I never knew this drink existed back in my heyday, but I know if I had stumbled upon a party with this back in the day, I would’ve been drinking it nonstop from that moment forward. To make the Frank the Tank, you’ll need:

-2oz Jack Daniel’s
-1oz sour mix
-1/2oz triple sec
-Lemon lime soda


-Fill a mason jar with ice
-Combine your Jack Daniel’s, sour mix, triple sec, and lemon lime soda
-Stir and enjoy!
