Trivia

Originally, the father was supposed to be Hemorrhoid, a character who later got cut. Another character that got removed from the script was Milkshake. Both of those characters were cleared to make way for Merkhaus, however, whenever first AD Sean Murray, and 2nd AD Wes Crandall stepped in as extras, they were referred to as Hemorrhoid and Milkshake respectively.

Quotes

Thames' Father: Let me tell you about the Omega class of 1932. The stocks were down, way way down. Oh, but so were the girls skirts. Ha ha ha. And we, the Omegas, we invented the boobs! The way to go, the way to show, the way to get the job done right? Skirts and down, the boobs are out, everything is flowing man! Like who needed consequences? We're no candyasses. We got it done, we made it work baby! The Omega, Omega, Omega! Yeah!

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!
