An absolute delight
26 June 2006 | by (Atwater, USA) – See all my reviews

A hazing initiation for a local group not unlike the shriners only identities get switched at a party as one of the initiates escapes on seeing the rites and bails, Landing unlucky OR lucky as the case may be Lloyd into a situation he did not seek out. This movie has lots of fun and a few surprises, and is easy entertainment.

Nothing shocking as we know today AFTER basic instinct, this is just an old-fashioned tale. These movies provide a safer environment to develop talent and interests without high tech gizmos, yet the fundamental message from then to now is get out and get involved. You never know where life will lead IF you don't get involved, but in todays world of SO MUCH OVERLOAD, the simpler times when peace could last a while is missed.

PS the Fez hats are adorable, after going to Vincennes recently to honor Red Skelton and seeing a clown group who wear Fez's this movie is a hoot.
