National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze is a 2003 American comedy film. Directed by the brothers David and Scott Hillenbrand, it was written by Patrick Casey and Worm Miller. The movie showcases many new and largely then-unknown actors and actresses. In addition to Tatyana Ali the film also features Patrick Renna, Chris Owen, Marie-Noelle Marquis and Danielle Fishel.

The film was theatrically released on September 26, 2003 and was only available in limited release areas. The film grossed about sixty thousand dollars at the U.S. box office.[1] It made nearly four hundred thousand dollars at the Russian box office in 2004.[1] Dorm Daze was released on DVD August 10, 2004 and debuted at number twelve on the DVD rental charts bringing in 2.13 million dollars its first week.[2]

The film was initially panned by critics but has developed a following of adolescent teenagers in the years since its release. In response, an unrated version was eventually released. A sequel entitled National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2 was released on DVD September 5, 2006. Several of the principal actors returned for the sequel including Danielle Fishel and Chris Owen. A second sequel was produced, but was reworked to be a standalone movie before being released as Transylmania on December 4, 2009.

The film was shot on location in California. The four major locations in California used for filming were: Los Angeles, San Diego (including Balboa Park), and Castaic.
