Eh, maybe
15 February 2021 | by codygdietrichSee all my reviews

It starts out with a dramatic intro that creates a wound. After that initial hook the plot seems to drift a little about this person a little about that and a little about the relationship between two people. The key for the film seems to be a little, as in it seems to skim the top of the people and their relationships with each other. The first university I enrolled in had maybe six fraternities and they counted the two honor societies in that number. For all fraternities you needed a 2.5 or 3.0 GPA to join and maintain membership. You could only join your second year there (having successfully passed 24 credits) and most were based in major a student could only join with a certain declared major. The university I'm looking to transfer to has no fraternities at that campus and limit numbers at all other campuses and agin largely major based with gpa requirements for entering and maintaining membership. The university my brother went to in a different state had the same basic set up for fraternities. Maybe it feels a bit like a cliché 80s college film because universities and fraternities have changed since then. Would have been better if they spent more time letting you into the characters minds and less of a 4 minute or so scene of a topless stripper dancing around. It's worth watching at least once.
