Have you seen the one about… FRATS/ SOROITIES

Everyone knows the stereotype that goes along with College sororities and fraternities. Whether you believe them or not is another thing all together. I believe that they are the perfect setting for some great movies. Here are my all-time faves:

Animal House (1978)
The quintessential frat-house movie. Super senior John Belushi refuses to let the evil dean of the college expel him or his brothers. It’s low-brow humor isn’t for everyone but it does have some good laughs.
Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
Anthony Edwards and Robert Carradine (half-brother of Kung Fu master David) lead a group of brainy misfits against the over-sterroided jocks of their school. It’s 80’s movie-making at its finest and gave cinema classic characters like Ogre, Poindexter, and Booger.
The Skulls (2000)
An underrated drama about a secret society at Yale University. Secrets and lies test the loyalty of the newest pledges Joshua Jackson and Paul Walker. It may be a bit predictable but the action is decent and it’s a lot of fun.
Old School (2003)
It’s “Animal House” for a younger generation. Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Vince Vaughn try to recapture their youth by going back to school and starting a fraternity. Like any Ferrell comedy it has some great lines and the delivery by the leads is spot-on.
The House Bunny (2008)
When Anna Faris gets kicked out of the Playboy mansion she ends up a house mother for a group of misfit girls led by Emma Stone. It’s a funny movie filled with heart. Faris finds just the right balance of vapidness and sincerity.

Honorable Mention:
Domino (2005)
So the movie isn’t about a sorority but it has a good scene about one. It reminds me of my sister, she pledged one year and didn’t make it, but if it had I imagine it going something like this:
