"Frat Star" explores the alluring, superficial, manipulative, and dark world of Ivy League fraternity culture. An insecure, poor, and broken-hearted Nick enters freshman year with no interest in fraternities. This all changes when his old money roommate Billy convinces him to pledge.
Okay, is Frat Star a plot-driven modern masterpiece of cinema? Not by most standards. However, the movie has far too many hilarious scenes and quotable lines to discard as a downright bad movie. The acting for every single supporting character was phenomenal without fail. Nick Cooper could've been a better protagonist with a better actor but all in all, the pervasive comedy of the movie was great. The film had its failings with attempts at drama but even then the drama had its comedic value at being so awkward. I would go so far as to say Frat Star is absolutely a must watch and many of the critic and user reviews of the movie take it too seriously. The movie doesn't necessarily push an intense underlying social commentary but it is a hilarious spoof on Greek life. The only aspect of the movie that leaves you utterly disappointed is the very ending but that doesn't take away from the sheer number of quotable one-liners and outrageous comedy scenes.
