The story is about a heart broken man realizes that it is not too late to relive the college days as they try recruiting old men and college kids to join their new fraternity. This movie was unfunny and lame and just boring.

This is the GOD of all college movies. Such a great idea. Unlike all the douche Frats that infest most universities and the guys in this movie are a crazy, wildly hilarious group of friends out to be the baddest and craziest mother f**kers ever.

The comic skill of the cast is what drives this chaotic comedy about men reliving their glory days. The film is at its best when the characters find the humor in some of the more poignant elements of growing older. Ferrell is a standout here as a doting family man who goes insane when he drinks and his fearless energy makes for the best scenes.

Mitch (Luke Wilson) catches the early flight home from San Diego to surprise his girlfriend (Juliette Lewis) but he is the one who gets the surprise of his life when he discovers her watching porn alone in their bedroom. He almost buys into her lies until a blind folded couple stumble out of his bathroom to engage in threesome with her. Things get worse when there is a knock at the door from a gentleman (no, not a Jehovah's Witness) who announces that he is there for the gang bang party.

Meanwhile Frank the Tank (Will Ferell) is the former party animal who is getting married despite warnings at the altar from an embittered married friend Beanie (Vince Vaughn) who whispers "You get one vagina for the rest of your life” This leads some very funny rendition of 'Total Eclipse of the …

Most star studded casts fail due to a weak script, over acting or just having minute parts. The film segregates the roles beautifully. Mitch Martin (Luke Wilson) becomes a head of a fraternity with the aid of the resourceful best-friend Bernard and eclectic Frank (Will Ferrell). Ferrell was made for his role and unfortunately no female character was very memorable. So many cameos and characters and yet everything fell in place. A few killer lines from the fun flick - Bernard Campbell - "What about Mitch here? He saw the wheels come off his life, guys. His whole world crumbled. Now he's the Godfather." Frank 'The Tank' Ricard - "All we are is dust in the wind..." "Were GOIN STREAKING!!" The film boasts a killer soundtrack ranging from Metallica, to Snoop to Simon & Garfunkel. One …

You're My Boy Blue!

This movie will stand out as one of the best comedy movies ever made. Everything in the movie was setup brilliantly to play off of the strengths of each member of the cast. The dialogues were well scripted although I am sure they told many of the cast to free form the dialogue to fit their personality so it just flowed perfectly.
The movie has the primary story of Mitch Martin (Wilson) who found his wife cheaing on him with mutiple people, moves into a house that is on the property of the local college, and is being told that he has to give up the house and move. In a last ditch effort to help their friend, Frank Ricard (Ferrell), and Beanie Campbell (Vaughn) form a fraternity and invite a number of the college students to join.
Dean Prichard (Piven) is the nemesis that they must …
