Storyline

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

Trivia

The character Steak Mungro, played by Russell Sadeghpour, wasn't even in the shooting script. Originally, the character Hodges was supposed to be the one who crushes Rico's dreams in the flashback, however, when Kevin Myers (who played Hodges) had a last-minute schedule conflict the day the flashback was to be shot, Aziz filled in and Steak Mungro, the Omega legend, was born. The character was eventually written into the script so much that it only made sense for him to return at the Greek Board debate as Rico's foil. See more »

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!
