The morning after kicking off their semester with a patriotic "stars, stripes, and strippers" party, the members of the Omega fraternity awaken to a find a baby on their doorstep. After little to no deliberation, the Omegas decide to pledge the baby. When a rival fraternity member, Rico, learns of this, he devises a plot to ruin the Omegas reputation in the eyes of the student body at Hamilton University. It's up to the Omegas to not only secure their legacy at the University, but to also raise a baby in a fraternity house. Written by Tuxedo

Quotes

Pledge: I still don't understand how you're graduating college and yet you can't remember to put the diaper on the baby before you put him in the crib.
Richie Sambora: Hey you know what Pledge, enough. You don't understand the pressure of having the actually graduate college. When my aunt Debbie graduated college she opened up an orphanage; an orphanage for midgets. It went really well until they started getting their hands on candy. A couple of years later we never heard from aunt Debbie again.

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!
