Going Greek ★½ 2001 (R)

College freshman/football star Jake (Bruno) is in school on a scholarship and must keep up his grades. That's not going to be easy when his geeky cousin Gil (James) wants to join a fraternity and won't be accepted unless Jake agrees to pledge as well. Jake finds himself loosening up with all the raucous antics of his frat brothers, but his grades begin to suffer as does his relationship with girlfriend Paige (Harris), who despises all fraternities. Gross-out gags and gratuitous nudity abound as you might expect. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Dylan Bruno, Laura Harris, Simon Rex, Dublin James, Corey Pearson, Oliver Hudson, Steve Monroe; D: Justin Zackham; W: Justin Zackham; C: Kirk Douglas; M: Nathan Barr. VIDEO
