Storyline

Loner freshman Jake Taylor is forced to join the wildest fraternity on campus when the frat brothers refuse to accept his geeky cousin/roommate unless Jake agrees to pledge with him. As the semester progresses, Jake struggles to maintain his grades as well as his affair with Paige, a beautiful sophomore who hates all fraternities. Through naked scavenger hunts, sorority ass-signings and all night beer fests, Jake discovers that he's actually beginning to enjoy himself. But when both his scholarship and his relationship with Paige are threatened, Jake must swallow his pride and turn to his fellow pledges for help or risk losing everything. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The scavenger hunt's item that was assigned to Pledge Ziegler was to sleep with at least one girl of each sorority before hell week begins. But the last girl Wendy (Susan Ward) only agreed to do it with him after he was already pledged. The fraternity was supposed to de-pledge him when he arrived for hell week. See more »

Quotes

[Thompson calls, once again]
Jake: [picks up phone, angrily] Listen to me...
Paige Forrester: [takes phone from Jake] No, listen to *me*, you dickless fuck. I know exactly what you're trying to do and I want you to know two things. One, even if you called here a thousand times tonight, Jake would still be getting laid. And two, if you bother us even once in the next ten hours, I'll see to it he tells everyone about the transsexual drag queen you were having cybersex with over the internet.

As good as American Pie, better than Old School
28 July 2003 | by blackgirlpearl2000See all my reviews

A girl in my dorm, yeah, I'm in summer school, had a copy of this, and we thought it would be a stupid knock-off of the above films. And while it does stick to most of the conventional situational comedy gags, there really was a lot to offer here, including some jokes I never even imagined... Do frat boys really do some of this??!!

Knowing the guys as UCSB, I wouldn't put it past them, but this movie did a really good job of telling the story in a way that made it feel more real and less Hollywood - which I mean as a good thing.

The cast was really good, I only recognized a few of them from other movies, and it felt like a really well made film - waaay better than 99% of the recent teen sex "comedies". My friend said it's coming out soon, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone in college.
