After three rowdy guys get booted from their frat house, they dress up as women and pledge the "ugly girl" sorority, where they figure they'll blend right in. In their new environment, the men relinquish their frat mentality and realize how hurtful they have been to women over the years. When their less-than-stunning female forms earn them an invite to a "dog catcher" party at their old frat, they decide to brave the harassment so they can grab the rest of their belongings from the house and make a clean break.

DOG, which are the letters for the geeky girl soriety on campus, show they can outdo the tri-pis. In this movie, 3 guys join DOG because they get kicked out of their fraturnity for theft. They need to get back into their frat house to get a video tape that will prove they aren't the ones that stole the money. So, in order to get in the house, they think dressing in drag will do the trick, plus they get free room and board at the DOG house. Of couse, the president of DOG, is a really hot blonde, who is supposed to be geeky because she wears glasses. Like we haven't seen that before.
So, the few laughs come from the guys in drag in awkard situations. Such as when one guy takes a shower with the hot blonde who can't tell he's a guy because she isn't wearing her glasses. As if! And of course, the uncomfortableness of them wearing dresses. And being hit on by some of their frat brothers. But, one thing I can't get over with movies like this is that the 3 guys are obvious male and not women, but everyone they see falls for the drag get-up. I mean, you can see their beards.
And you know how it ends, the 3 guys who didn't think much of the DOG girls, think they are OK, and not such geeks after living with them. And the hot blonde ends up with one of the guys.
FINAL VERDICT: It's OK. There are some laughs. I recommend it if you are wanting some semi-raunchy fun, but it is no where near as good as raunchy comedies like American Pie.
