Storyline

The Delta Pi sorority is a sort of female Animal House. Constantly strapped for cash, they agree to travel to Las Vegas to participate in a mud-wrestling competition. Of course, this results in many hi-jinks, some even involving their octogenarian house mother. Written by Mike Konczewski

Excellent Movie
16 March 2005 | by mcsaripkinSee all my reviews

Although the movie was childish in parts, overall it was a great non-thinking movie.

You don't always have to have something that is an award winner for it to be good. Everything Ruth Gordon does is a winner, and Rex Meredith was wonderful in his part.

Will never be in the TOP 100 of all times, but a must see.

Try watching it and just have a good time. Ask a few friends over, have a drink, sit back, and expect to be entertained.

If you plan to be hyper-critical, this movie is not for you.

Watch how each actor molds their character into something that actors in the future will want to emulate. The script needed some work, but the actors saved it with their performances.
