A trio of twenty something buddies tries to recapture the outrageous, irrepressible fun of their college years by starting their own off-campus frat house. Mitch, Frank and Beanie have all reached a crossroads in their lives. They can choose to be responsible adults, with wives, families and steady jobs--or they can postpone adulthood in favor of the reckless abandon of frat house living with all the fun and none of the education. No contest.

"The recess bell should have rung immediately into the first period of this frothy yet flat and insufferable scholastic satire."
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"A flatland of lowest-common- denominated retro-collegiate wackiness."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"An extremely funny and, of course, socially unredeemable comedy."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
