With free housing, beer, parties every night, and the prettiest girls on campus, the boys from KOK have everything they ever wanted until they lose it, and they are taking the most desperate measures to get it back.
Touchstone Pictures’ “Sorority Boys” tells the story of Dave (Barry Watson), Adam (Michael Rosenbaum), and Doofer (Harland Williams), who were set up and kicked out of their fraternity house.

With no place to stay and no food to eat, the boys don on a pair of pantyhose and some lipstick and join DOG, a sorority for all the girls who don’t cut it for anything else.

The boys learn to adjust to life as girls and begin to be more sympathetic to girls’ wants and needs and see the world through a pair of high heels as tampons and rejection become the daily topic of thier temporary lives.

The movie pokes fun of the sorority stereotypes that we have come to know through previous teen movies. There are always the frat boys that do nothign but drink and party all day, and the sorosrity of pretty blondes with short skirts and high heels.

However, this movie’s jokes do not compare with the rush of meaningless sexual humor teen movies such as “American Pie” and “Scary Movie.” The movie doesn’t concentrate so much on using sex as a source of humor.

Although this movie does includes plenty of sex- after all, it is about fraternities and sororities – it provides an insight into how stereotypes affect the lives of many people. By being girls, the boys were able to realize that the way they used to treat the girls is not how they liked being treated.

After plenty of pantyhose and lipstick, the movie as always, ends happily ever after.
