Sorority Boys ★ 2002 (R)

Three frat boys (Williams, Rosenbaum and Watson) become bosom buddies when they don girlish garb to pass as sorority sisters in this contrived campus comedy. After being accused of a theft in their frat house, the badly disguised trio head to the notorious loser Delta Omega Gamma (DOG) house to stay in school. The boys teeter in their high heels, can't find dresses big enough for their ample “cabooses,” and generally begin to understand the drag of being a gal while the film continues to serve up a kegful of gross-out and misogynist humor. Another in a string of misguided homages to “Animal House,” with alums Daughton, Metcalf, Furst, and Vernon showing up for paychecks. Although Williams is considered to be the best of the three leads, all are terrible. Tepid romantic subplot with DOG house president doesn't help matters any. 93m/C VHS, DVD .
