A Pleasant Surprise
24 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I heard the log line "fraternity pledges baby" I rolled my eyes. When I saw the box art with the "Hangover" baby I rolled my eyes again. But as a lover of comedy I gave the movie a chance and loved it. It was very fresh, very unique, and very funny. The script avoids all of the cliché things you expect to see in the played out college movie genre and the usually stupid baby movie genre. There are no tasteless gags. No scenes where the guys struggle to change a diaper or the pointless obstacles that sidetrack the narrative. No scenes of unnecessary nudity, and despite the "R" rating, it was actually very, very PG-13, and relative to most "R" comedies, very tasteful. Overall, this may not be the best comedy of 2012, but in a year that hasn't produced many great comedies, this is on my short list of films that will hold up, and more importantly it's SMART. This has everything it needs to be a cult classic!
