In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Mitch, Frank and Beanie are disillusioned with their personal lives begining when Mitch's nymphomanic girlfriend, Heidi, cheats on him, then former party animal Frank gets married, but unwilling to let go of his wild life, and Beanie is a family man seeking to reclaim his wild and crazy youth. Beanie suggests that they form their own fraternity in Mitch's new house on a college campus to re-live their glory days by bringing together a variety of misfit college students, losers, middle-aged and elderly retirees as their new friends and later try to avoid being evicted by the new Dean of Students, Pritchard, whom still holds a personal grudge against all three of them.

There were plans to produce a sequel, with the main characters on college spring break. Upon reading the script, Will Ferrell when promoting Semi-Pro (2008), said that he and Vince Vaughn had the same reaction when the story just felt like it was repeating itself. See more »

Luke Wilson (as Mitch), Will Ferrell (as Frank), and Vince Vaughn (as Beanie) star as three dumb old dudes who open a "frat house" and act stupid. But, this is no "Animal House". Think frat, fat, and fag jokes. And, they're not even funny. Snoop Dogg and James Carville appear as lame versions of themselves. If that's not enough to turn you off, be forewarned - the performers you'd least like to see naked take off the most clothes, with Mr. Ferrell's bare ass hanging around for an interminable length of time. Apologies are in order. Director/co-writer/co-producer Todd Phillips may have taken it the wrong way when someone told him, "This movie should be shot."
