Who needs these kinds of friends?
14 June 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

After her son dies during a hazing incident his mother becomes a radical in her crusade to have fraternity initiations outlawed. She encounters much stonewalling by college officials and indifference by state politicians. The woman's life was turned upside down and some members of her family alienated from her as she singlemindedly went about attempting to keep this tragedy from being repeated. What makes boys want to socialize with a hall full of drunken cretins intent on partying till they drop? Or go through hellish rituals some of which bring to mind hell day in special forces boot camp? No point at all, but go tell that to the young turks, eh? Good film.
