Storyline

After the vice-president's resignation over a scandal, senator 'Kay Bee' Hartmann is first in line to succeed him. The only likely skeleton in her closet is teenage daughter Ashley, on spring-break with her sorority in Texas's wild-reputed South Padre Island, trying to act cool in a desperate attempt to win back studly boyfriend William, who dumped her for a popular party animal. So the senator sends nerdy junior assistant Becky St. Germaine as chaperon. Becky takes along her former college friends, all refused by sororities and meeting for an annual joint holiday. For once it won't be tame but frightfully exciting, making up for their wasted wild years, joining the party scene with their libertine motel host and the Seven, a group of popular airheads who adopt the dog coach from the adult bunch as dance coach. One 'old' girl even attempts to seduce the hottest frat boy, gentleman Todd, which seems to work. Written by KGF Vissers

Loaded with fish-out-of water laughs & Sophie Monk!!!
21 April 2010 | by paz9See all my reviews

Dude this movie rocks with great conflict comedy, social satire and the deliciously sexy Sophie Monk in one of her biggest roles yet! If you are at all enlightened/political you will love the female GW Bush character, the environmental jokes, the feminist humor amid wet tee-shirts,...

Gentlemen, don't be threatened by a chick-flick that straddles all sides of the aisle. Sit back and enjoy a drunk Rachael Dratch shouting "Do me!" as her friends haul her away. Parker Posey as the suck-up gopher who loves the environment and Amy Poehler as a wannabe "seven" girl also deliver in a big way.

Then there is the delectable Sophie Monk. Thank GOD she's getting larger roles. Girl you got it going on. Call me!
