When Alcott says, "If Betty Friedan were alive...," this was meant sarcastically. He's probably well aware that she was alive when the movie is set. See more »
Man, our T.G. party was a total bust. Every time I got close to hittin' it with one of those new mamas, her evil girlfriend's got to show up and screw everything up.
What we need is a higher female-to-male ratio, like in cool nightclubs, you know, where they let in five times as many women as men.
How are we gonna get five times as many women to show up?
We have a party but we call it a fundraiser.
So we gotta think of a charity.
It's gotta be the right charity. It's got to attract hotties.

Well here we go... another teen/young adult college comedy coming your way, spiced up with a little romance, the usual boy-meets-girl-falls-in-love-but-she's-already-with-someone storyline, and that's really all there is to tell, aside from a few notable college pranks that kinda make you wonder what _you_ did with your time back then...
The acting is alright, teen-movie poster child Jason Biggs as the "Loser" delivers well, Greg Kinnear does a great job in his role as the slick, uppity, self-important, boneheaded college professor with a dirty little secret.... an let's not forget the one and only true reason why this movie just might be for you after all: Mena Suvari!! (Yes folks, I gotta admit that I, for one, will never find true happiness until one fine day I'll get to be with somebody like her.) Cute as ever, she gives a standout performance as the sweet, attitude-laden little grunge girl. Really something to see!
As for the rest of the movie, it's more like "same old, same old..." - if you like Mena Suvari, you're bound to love it, but otherwise, not that I'd tell you not to bother, but just don't expect to be too thrilled because it's really all been done before (and some of it actually by none other than Jason Biggs in some of his better-known flicks).
