In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Mitch, Frank and Beanie are disillusioned with their personal lives begining when Mitch's nymphomanic girlfriend, Heidi, cheats on him, then former party animal Frank gets married, but unwilling to let go of his wild life, and Beanie is a family man seeking to reclaim his wild and crazy youth. Beanie suggests that they form their own fraternity in Mitch's new house on a college campus to re-live their glory days by bringing together a variety of misfit college students, losers, middle-aged and elderly retirees as their new friends and later try to avoid being evicted by the new Dean of Students, Pritchard, whom still holds a personal grudge against all three of them.Written by

When Mitch is reading Frank's note about the house being boarded up, not only does Frank's voice-over say things that aren't on the note: "If you're holding this letter, you already know..." but his voice-over doesn't say things that are in the letter: "There is absolutely no way to get inside." and "I love you." The complete voice-over says: "Dear Mitch, If you're holding this letter, you already know. The house has been boarded up. The windows, the doors, everything. We're at the Comfort Inn. Room 112. I love you. Frank."
The actual writing on the note says: "Dear Mitch. The house has been boarded up. The windows, the doors, everything. There is absolutely no way to get inside. We're at the Comfort Inn. Room 112. Frank." See more »
Well as everyone knows this is a freaking hilarious movie. It's pretty much considered a classic so how I missed seeing it until now is beyond me. I finally 'get' what my brother is doing when he says "earmuffs" to his 2 year old son now.
Cheap laughs and raunchy over the top humour from a fantastic cast who work incredibly well together. Lots of cameos and clever secondary roles or bit parts as well. Well Ferrell actually made me cry I was laughing so hard.
The plot is pretty good for a comedy and follows 3 mid twenty-ish guys trying to postpone adulthood (responsibility, wives, families) in favour of recapturing the irresponsible fun of their college years by starting their own off-campus frat house. In order to avoid being evicted by the Dean, still holding a personal grudge they bring together a misfit of student pledges; losers, the middle-aged and elderly retirees. 6/1/11
