Most underrated fraternity movie ever!
14 October 2005 | by FilmDeMagnifiqueSee all my reviews

After watching Wimps, I have come to the conclusion that it is one of the most underrated fraternity romps ever. In the midst of classics such as "Porky's" and "Animal House", "Wimps" cruises under the radar as a genuinely heart-warming romantic comedy, of similar quality to "Say Anything". But don't be fooled, folks! This vivacious, feel good comedy also delivers the laughs, and Louie Bonanno plays a pitch perfect neurotic that would make even Woody Allen blush! The role of the alpha jock, played with flawless timing by Jim Abele, gives the film a timeless "Beauty and the Beast" dynamic between Abele and the always beautiful Tracy Adams. The synergy between the actors makes the sum of the parts greater than the whole in this little known 80's gem!
