QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: After being kicked out of their frat house for allegedly stealing money, three college guys end up staying in a sorority house posing as coeds while trying to retrieve a videotape that will prove their innocence.
PLOT:
Dave (BARRY WATSON), Adam (MICHAEL ROSENBAUM) and Doofer (HARLAND WILLIAMS) are three guys who enjoy living in the Kappa Omicron Kappa house and throwing wild and sexist parties that irritate Leah (MELISSA SAGEMILLER), an outspoken feminist and head of the local chapter of Delta Omicron Gamma.

Yet, when Spence (BRAD BEYER), the KOK president, announces that the money the fraternity has been collecting for an important alumni cruise has been stolen by the three, they're immediately chased from the premises. When they realize that Spence was the only other person with the combination to the safe in their room and that he must have been caught on their hidden, motion-activated video camera, Dave, Adam and Doofer decide they must retrieve the tape to prove their innocence.

The only problem is that no one, including Adam's little fraternity brother, Jimmy (TONY DENMAN), will let them in. Accordingly, they show up at the next party dressed in drag and going by the names of Daisy, Adina and Roberta. Not surprisingly, their less than attractive looks immediately get them thrown from the house and to Leah's feet who's outside protesting.

Drawn in by her offer of free food as well as room and board if they pledge DOG, the three decide they can live there as women while they plot how to get their hands on that videotape. While there, they meet other sorority sisters including Patty (KATHRYN STOCKWOOD), who thinks she's a freak because of her height, Katie (HEATHER MATARAZZO) who has a rather loud speaking voice, and Frederique (YVONNE SCIO), a rather hairy French student.

As the men try to keep up their ruse, they soon learn the trials and tribulation of being a less than attractive woman at the college, all while Dave begins to fall for Leah who sees him as a compassionate female friend and possible lover. With the date of the important alumni cruise nearing, the three men in drag try to deal with their femininity while also attempting to clear their names of theft.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of anyone in the cast or raunchy and/or sophomoric, college-based comedies featuring rude and crude frat boys and scantily clad/nude coeds, it's a good bet they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For crude sexual content, nudity, strong language and some drug use.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • BARRY WATSON plays a fraternity brother who learns what it's like to be on the other side of sexist remarks and attitudes while posing as a woman to clear his and his friends' names of thievery. He uses some strong profanity and becomes involved with Leah while acting like a woman.
  • MICHAEL ROSENBAUM plays his friend and fraternity brother who's known for sleeping around with many women. He uses strong profanity and also ends up in drag and fending off Jimmy's advances while dressed that way.
  • HARLAND WILLIAMS plays the somewhat dimwitted member of the trio. He uses strong profanity and finds himself enjoying hanging out with the sisters as one of them (during which he uses drugs with them).
  • MELISSA SAGEMILLER plays a sorority sister who's fed up with how men (and particularly the frat guys) treat women. She eventually befriends Adam in drag and then becomes sexually attracted to him (in a lesbian fashion). She uses some profanity.
  • TONY DENMAN plays a lustful fraternity guy who tries to put the moves on Adam's female persona, unaware that she's a he (and apparently has sex with him after slipping him/her a date rape drug).
  • BRAD BEYER plays the fraternity president and resident blowhard who steals money and blames it on the three guys. He uses strong profanity.
  • KATHRYN STOCKWOOD plays a sorority sister who feels awkward and embarrassed about her height and size. She does some drugs with Doofer and her sisters.
  • HEATHER MATARAZZO plays another sister who speaks in a loud and obnoxious voice.
  • YVONNE SCIO plays a hairy French woman who smokes and does drugs with Doofer.

    Here's a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated comedy. Profanity includes the use of at least 16 "f" words, while various other expletives and colorful phrases are also spoken, while a song has sexually related lyrics. Various instances of sexually related dialogue are also present, some of which is explicit.

    Various sexual encounters are implied (a guy wakes up in bed with two women) or seen (on videotape showing secretly taped sex in several positions with movement), while masturbation is implied or commented on, and erections are implied or partially seen (covered in soap suds).

    One frat guy repeatedly hits on another frat guy dressed in drag (thinking he's a woman) and it's implied that he has sex with him after slipping a date rape drug into his drink, while a woman makes out with one of the guys in drag, thinking she's having a lesbian encounter.

    Various men treat women (or men dressed like women) in derogatory fashions and/or as sexual objects, while other bad attitudes are also present, as are various bits of behavior that might prove enticing for some kids to imitate.

    Characters drink and/or smoke, and some do drugs or are seen with bongs (resulting in characters being drunk and/or high). Some crude humor is present, as are various instances of violence (all played for laughs) where people hit or strike others, while slapstick style material also occurs.

  • Jimmy pours very strong drinks for himself and Adam in drag.
  • We see Doofer (in drag) and several sorority sisters all high from smoking pot from a bong.

  • Patty comes into the guys' room (thinking they're women) and asks if they have any feminine hygiene products saying she went through an entire box that morning and had to use a roll of toilet paper.

  • Various people (men and women, college students and adults) are mean and disrespectful to the three guys (dressed as women) and their sorority sisters on a cocktail cruise (saying no "Dogs" - meaning the sorority "D.O.G." but also as abusive labels for their looks as well).

  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE)
  • None.
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE)

  • PROFANITY
  • At least 16 "f" words (2 used sexually as are the terms "laid," "banged" and "plugged"), 9 "s" words, 9 slang terms using male genitals ("c*ck" - although some of them could have been "KOK" for the fraternity initials - "d*ck," "pr*ck" and "wiener"), 4 slang terms using female genitals ("trim," "p*ssy" and "tw*t"), 5 slang terms for breasts (variations of "t*t"), 16 asses (1 used with "hole"), 2 hells, 1 damn, 5 uses each of "God" and "Oh my God," 3 of "Jesus," 2 of "G-damn" and 1 use of "My God" as exclamations.
  • SEX/NUDITY
  • We see that Spence is preparing to discipline various frat members/pledges that involves some Crisco (or something similar), hamsters, and the young men's bare butts (that we see). That's interrupted before anything happens, and when Spence complains, someone states that it's time he "got laid." We also see some men in very small shorts/underwear
  • After Leah tells other women not to attend a frat party as it's just reinforcing misogynistic attitudes that have kept women in bondage for thousands of years, another girl excitedly comments about there being bondage (of the sexual kind) at the party.
  • Various frat members fire large dildos - via a large slingshot type apparatus -- toward the DOG house.
  • One of the guys has his dog sniff a girl's clothed crotch as a way of meeting her, and he's carrying a loose hot dog that he flops around toward her before throwing it to the dog.
  • Leah shows her sorority sisters pictures taken from a KOK party, and we thus see various still photos of bare-breasted women, one woman grabbing a guy's clothed crotch, and one man in just his underwear. As she does so, a large dildo crashes through the window and lands on the floor where it begins to gyrate around (until she steps down on it and hits it with some tongs). One of the girls somewhat excitedly comments on it being big, and Leah then picks it up with those tongs and tosses it into a bucket filled with other dildos.
  • Adam wakes up in the morning with two girls in his bed (after a wild party the night before). One of the girls gets up and gets dressed (we see her in her panties), as we see Doofer in bed holding a porno magazine that shows a bare-breasted woman on the cover. When that first girl leaves, she's greeted by various frat guys who taunt her with a chant and take her photo, and we then see various other photos of other girls in similar situations (implying Adam has slept around a lot). We then see the other girl getting dressed in the background of a shot (she's out of focus, but we can see her bare breasts).
  • Adam tells Jimmy that if he wants to bring his numbers up (the women he sleeps with), he'll have to bring the quality (of the women) down.
  • A large black frat member's nickname is "Big Johnson" (a double entendre).
  • As Spence mentions things they provided for alumni in the past, he includes soft-core porn and we see a few photos of women doing housework in bikinis.
  • We see a few men in their underwear as they're chased from the frat house.
  • We see that Adam had a hidden video camera used to videotape his sexual encounters. Doofer then finds one of those tapes that shows a woman moving on top of Adam, having sex (seen from a distance). We then see a shot of Doofer watching the tape, apparently nude, with a huge bowl of chips or snacks covering his crotch. He then removes what looks like a used tissue from the bowl, suggesting what else he might have been doing while watching the porno tape.
  • The guys talk about the "all trim" party at the KOK house.
  • We see a poster on the back of a door of a scantily clad woman (holding a pitcher of beer in front of her bare breasts) and we see the side of her bare butt.
  • We see Jimmy sitting in his room with a bong between his legs (positioned there to look like an erect penis). As he gets excited about Adam in drag (not knowing it's him), he touches his own bare nipple and then stands and opens his robe. Adam (as the woman), then looks down and apparently sees Jimmy's penis, as Jimmy then comments that it gets a lot bigger.
  • As the three guys (posing as women) join the sorority girls in a circle and introduce themselves, Doofer states that his name is Roberta, that he/she is addicted to porn and masturbates constantly.
  • We see the guys in their own beds in the sorority house, wearing panties (one of which is quite small and shows the top of his bare butt).
  • Dave goes into the girl's shower to shower, thinking he'll be alone. One of the sisters then comes in, but comments that she can't see since she isn't wearing her contacts. He then looks at her nude body when she comes into the shower (we initially don't see anything, but then see repeated close-up views of her bare breasts as she showers). We also see him building up fake breasts on his chest out of soap suds and then see an outline of his growing erection in the soap suds at his crotch (upon which she accidentally drops her washcloth and it lands on that erection). She's oblivious to any of that, and he then runs out of the shower toward the door (we see his bare butt).
  • We see Adam (clothed) trying to push his penis down so that no bulge shows in his dress.
  • As a man in a passing car heckles Adam (dressed in drag), Adam then turns, grabs his crotch and yells out, "Suck my d*ck!"
  • During a women's studies class, the teacher briefly comments on the myth of the male orgasm. Later, we see writing on the board that says that the vagina is ergonomically superior to the penis.
  • Jimmy tells Adam about a "skank" he "banged" 5 times and that she was begging for more, but Adam knows that's not true since he was the woman Jimmy was trying to hit on.
  • The song, "Good Girls Don't" by the Knack has lyrics about "wishing you could get inside her pants," a girl saying that "good girls don't, but I do," and "till she's sitting on your face."
  • After Leah thinks that Dave (as a guy) is simply trying to hit on her and impress her with certain lines, she sarcastically asks if she should just get under the table and "suck your c*ck." She then comments on him trying to "get in touch with" her breasts.
  • Another large dildo comes through a window, but Katie is excited by seeing it and then locks her door so that no one can come in (we don't know the specifics of what she does next).
  • We see what look like used condoms on the end of a plunger that Doofer is holding (as he/she chastises others that the toilet is for toilet paper only).
  • Out of curiosity, Doofer feels Adam's stuffed bra while the latter is wearing it.
  • Jimmy tries to hit on Adam (not knowing it's him dressed in drag) and says, "Let's f*ck." Adam says they should have a drink first and then comments on a box of porno tapes. Jimmy then slaps Adam on the clothed rear and puts a date rape pill in his drink so that he can take advantage of "her." He doesn't know, however, that Adam has done the same to him (but only to make him pass out so that he can grab their videotape). Jimmy then says, "Tonight I lose my virginity to a woman I love."
  • As Dave washes Leah's hair in the shower from behind her (she can't see that he's a guy since she's not wearing her contacts), the girl playfully tells him to stop poking her "in the butt" (an erection reference).
  • While high from smoking pot, some of the sorority sisters dance together and one smacks another's clothed butt.
  • As Dave gives Leah a massage, she asks if "she" wants to sleep over. We then see them in bed together (he's still dressed as a woman), and the two eventually kiss while lying next to each other (Leah thinks she's a woman). Dave then hops up, says that he's confused (as the woman), and holds something over his crotch (apparently to hide his erection).
  • We see a poster that shows a bare-breasted woman.
  • Adam (dressed as a woman) wakes up in bed with Jimmy and then quickly hops up. Later, Doofer spots some dried semen on Adam's dress and asks what it is. Adam tries to brush it off by saying that it's just gum, with Doofer then asking, "What flavor was it? Big juicy c*ck?" Later, a comment is made about Adam (in drag) as the woman that Jimmy "back-doored."
  • Adam and Dave end up getting into a fight, with Adam saying he thought Dave had his back (as far as supporting their latest mission), with Dave then joking that someone else got there first (referring to Jimmy). They then end up using large dildos like swords, with one nearly forcing one such dildo into the other's mouth at one point and saying, "Eat it." After some more fighting, Adam eventually breaks down, saying that he's ugly and that he'd never "f*ck" himself. Dave then reminds Adam that Adam had sex with some girl and that Adam (as a woman) is much prettier than her.
  • After a girl purposefully hits Doofer in the crotch during a football game, he must continue acting like a woman and thus states that the other girl hit him/her in the vagina, and then tells Patty to be careful of his vagina when she carries him off the field. When one of the girl catches Adam looking at her clothed chest (thinking he's a she), the woman tells him, "Get your eyes off my t*ts, rug muncher." Fraternity guys then turn on the sprinkler system, turning the event into a wet T-shirt display (where some of the players' bare breasts are visible through their shirts). Adam then says (about another sorority), that they might give "great blow jobs," but that their sorority is a family.
  • One of the guys suggest that when they're done dressing like women, that they roll their "wieners" back out.
  • A man on a cocktail cruise asks Dave's father where his son is so that they can get their official business over and he can then go "tomcatting."
  • Still thinking Adam is a girl, Leah passionately kisses him in public, causing various older men on that cruise to comment on that ("a little girl party," "I love lesbos").
  • An older man asks a female student, "How'd you like to go to bed with a very rich man?" He then feels her butt and she slaps him on the face.
  • After the guys reveal themselves as guys, someone tells Jimmy, "Dude, you plugged your big bro" (fraternity brother). We then see that the frat brothers have the three friends stripped down to their bras and panties.
  • We see videotape playback of a sexual encounter that Adam had with a woman where he's having sex from behind her on his bed (seen from a distance with movement).
  • Leah reminds Adam about him stating (as a woman) about the time he/she lost his/her virginity to the bass player with the "huge balls." He then admits that that really happened to his female cousin.
  • We see a flashback to an earlier scene that's now continued with Jimmy coming up behind Adam (dressed as a woman) who's passed out on the bed.
  • Leah shows a fair amount of cleavage while sitting next to Dave on a sofa (dressed as a guy). She asks Dave about his female counterpart, asking if he thought she would be jealous if they took a shower together, and the two then start making out.
  • SMOKING
  • Frederique smokes a few times, as do some miscellaneous people (cigarettes and cigars).
  • TENSE FAMILY SCENES
  • None.
  • TOPICS TO TALK ABOUT
  • Kids who don't fall into the "norm" and/or think they're different from other kids (such as Patty here thinking she's a giant because she's tall).
  • The way some men view and/or treat women, and how women are judged differently than men.
  • College life and how this film represents it.
  • VIOLENCE
  • A large dildo crashes through a window and lands on the floor where it begins to gyrate around (until Leah steps down on it and hits it with some tongs).
  • Some slapstick material has a girl falling from Adam's window (we hear, but don't see the impact on the ground below); Patty accidentally breaking various things due to her size/strength; a large student pushing Spence backwards in excitement; Doofer trying to shut off an alarm clock (hitting it with his hand, then a hammer and then a chair); a person accidentally bangs a door into another person; Jimmy tries to hit on Adam (not knowing it's him dressed in drag) and Adam repeatedly hits him and/or knocks him aside (all played for exaggerated laughs) with him eventually tossing Jimmy out through a closed window and Jimmy then crashing back into the room through another closed window.
  • Doofer uses a handgun to shoot a lock off a trunk.
  • Doofer repeatedly hits another girl quite hard with a pillow after announcing "pillow fight."
  • A heckler throws his drink (in a cup) at Adam (dressed as a woman), hitting him/her on the chest.
  • Adam smacks Jimmy on the face after the latter was talking about his female alter ego.
  • Adam punches a frat guy in the face while dressed like a woman.
  • Dave and Adam get into a fight, with Adam biting Dave on the leg. A few punches and knees are thrown (as is a hair brush and some powder) and Dave ends up falling over a railing to the steps below. The two then use large dildos like swords while fighting each other (one smashes a bust with his). Dave then tries running outside, but Adam throws a dildo that hits Dave on the head and knocks him to the ground. He then tackles him outside and the two continue struggling.
  • The three guys (still in drag) and their sorority sisters decide to take on another sorority in a touch football game. The opposing players, however, play extremely rough, with one kneeing Doofer in the crotch, causing him a great deal of pain. They then pile on and repeatedly hit and kick Dave, taking him out of the game. Adam then tackles one of the opposing girls quite hard. More football violence and kicking follows, including Patty running or knocking over other players and even the ref after one player is mean to her.
  • After a guy makes a disparaging remark to Adam dressed as a woman, Adam throws a rock that breaks the back window of the car the guy's in and causes the car to crash into a street display.
  • Adam hits another woman with his bag (while dressed like a woman).
  • An older man asks a female student, "How'd you like to go to bed with a very rich man?" He then feels her butt and she slaps him on the face.
  • After a guy tests to see if a woman really is female by yanking on her hair, she whacks him with her hand.
