Storyline

Loner freshman Jake Taylor is forced to join the wildest fraternity on campus when the frat brothers refuse to accept his geeky cousin/roommate unless Jake agrees to pledge with him. As the semester progresses, Jake struggles to maintain his grades as well as his affair with Paige, a beautiful sophomore who hates all fraternities. Through naked scavenger hunts, sorority ass-signings and all night beer fests, Jake discovers that he's actually beginning to enjoy himself. But when both his scholarship and his relationship with Paige are threatened, Jake must swallow his pride and turn to his fellow pledges for help or risk losing everything. Written by Anonymous

Really funny!
29 August 2004 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

I've always liked American comedies, and this little gem is one of my all time favorites. What more can I say. The girls are nice to look at, the jokes are really funny...did I mention the girls are nice to look at?

The story is about two cousins who help each other through pledging a fraternity - since we don't have fraternities Down Under I don't know how realistic the portrayals are but it looks like a blast!

I don't think it came out in theaters - definitely not in Austalia - but it's well worth your time to check it out on video.

Also has really well done DVD goodies including a deleted scene with the scrumptious Claire Forlani. The director's commentary is the best I've ever heard - he really goes into the bits and pieces of what it took to get the film made and has lots of advice for other aspriing directors.

Well worth a look!
