Sorority Boys



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

MPAA Rating: R

Three college seniors are shunned by their friends when they are accused of stealing their fraternity house's funds, which were intended for a big end-of-year bash. They see their promising futures dissolving unless they can get back into the house and find the proof they need to clear their names. Their master plan includes dressing up like women and pledging a sorority house that they have always despised. With Barry Watson, Harland Williams, Michael Rosenbaum, Melissa Sagemiller and Heather Matarazzo. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 8 - We see many topless women exposing bare breasts and nipples: some of the scenes show women in slides, some show women in posters, a few are of women in the shower, one woman dresses in the background and we see an out of focus image of her bare breasts. We see a video of a topless woman straddling a man and moving rhythmically (we see her bare back and the side of her bare breast and hear them both moaning). On another video, a woman on her hands and knees and a man behind her are shown having sex. A man dressed like a woman is shown sleeping on his stomach and we see the head of another man pop up behind him (it is suggested that they have sex while the sleeping man remains asleep, but nothing is shown). A woman and a man dressed like a woman kiss passionately while lying in bed, and a man dressed like a woman and a woman kiss while dancing. A man and a woman kiss a couple of times. A man dressed like a woman goes to a man's room and the man tries to seduce him; he slaps him on the buttocks and lunges at him. A man wearing a robe that drapes open exposing his chest tries to seduce someone he thinks is a woman (but is actually a man dressed like a woman) by rubbing his nipple, and he later drops his robe and we see his bare shoulders (a veiled comment is made about the size of his endowment). During a hazing ceremony several men are shown nude, on their knees and tied together with rope around their waists; we see their bare chests and buttocks and what looks like shortening and a hamster are brought into the room. We see a man and woman showering together a few times; we see the man's bare chest and the woman's bare breasts and in one scene the man gets an erection (his bubble-covered penis becomes erect), and we see his bare buttocks as he runs out of the bathroom. A nude man sits in a chair with a large bowl of chips on his lap. A man wakes up with two women in his bed; one gets out of bed wearing a tube top and panties. A man dressed like a woman wakes up in bed with a man. A man pins a man dressed like a woman against a wall and tries to seduce him. A slide show shows a woman holding a man's clothed crotch, a woman sitting on a man's lap while he has his head in her chest (they are clothed), a man sitting in only his jockey shorts, and an elderly woman doing a striptease (we see her in a short slip and a man is peeking up the slip). A bare-chested man is shown in a poster. A group of cheerleaders in tight, short outfits are sprayed with water and their wet tops show the outline of their nipples. Also, women are shown in tight-fitting outfits that reveal the outline of their breasts, cleavage, bare backs, bare midriffs, shoulders and bare legs. Three men who are dressing like women sleep in shirts and underwear; one wears bikini panties and his buttock cleavage is exposed. Vibrators are catapulted across campus and many end up crashing through windows; a woman hits one with a fireplace poker as it starts to vibrate, another time a woman looks at it with interest, we see a large pot filled with multi-colored vibrators in an entry hallway, and one time two men dressed like women use the vibrators like swords and fence with each other. A man pinches a woman's buttock and a man puts his head on the chest of a man dressed like a woman. A man dressed like a woman grabs his crotch and yells an insult at a man in a car. A dog sniffs at a woman's crotch insistently, we see a used condom lying on the shelf of a safe, and a man does the "strut" -- which entails picking up one leg at a time and wiggling the hips forward and back. A man reaches into his underwear to retrieve a key. A man dressing like a woman stuffs his bra and another man helps by squeezing the bra cups to straighten them out. There are a couple of references to pornography, virginity, masturbation and erections. And there are a couple of references to menstrual cycles.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man dressed like a woman and a man fight; one is punched repeatedly, hit with a chair and thrown out a window. A football game contains some violent tackles and on a couple of occasions people are thrown in the air, pounced on by a group of people, punched and kicked in the groin and head (several people are shown bruised and battered and one has a bite mark on his cheek). A man is thrown off a moving ship (we hear him scream and hear a splash). A woman slaps a man in the face. On several occasions women are covered by a net and tossed out of a frat house while the words "dog catcher" are yelled by a crowd watching. A man dressed like a woman punches a man in the face and threatens several other men physically. A man dressed like a woman throws a rock through a car window and the car swerves and crashes. A woman is picked up by a group of men and swung toward the railing of a ship; they plan to throw her overboard. A man shoots the lock off a footlocker. A woman climbs out a window and we hear her hit the ground below. Men line up in a hallway and chant at women as they leave a man's bedroom a few times. A man dressed like a woman hits another woman with a pillow repeatedly. Three men are chased by a large group of men; some carry brooms and they are all yelling and chanting a fraternity battle cry. A man is pulled into a bush by another man. A man shoves another man who falls on the ground (we hear the thud). A man dressed like a woman cleans a bathroom sink and pulls out a rope of tangled hair from the drain (the rope ends up getting dragged across another woman's head and touches her lips). A man dressed like a woman is hit in the chest by a cup filled with a beverage, and a man dressed like a woman hits another woman on the back with his purse. A woman breaks a cup while trying to drink from it. A man burps loudly on several occasions. A man dressed like a woman is shown going into the bathroom and sitting on a toilet. A man in a wheelchair has what looks like a bag of urine hanging from an IV holder. A man and a man dressed like a woman pass out from drinks that have been spiked with a sleeping drug.

PROFANITY 6 - 13 F-words, 1 nearly uttered F-word, 3 obscene hand gestures, 9 sexual references, 12 scatological terms, 29 anatomical terms (the name of a fraternity house is KOK so whenever it is uttered it sounds like an anatomical term), 3 mild obscenities, 3 derogatory terms for lesbians, 2 religious profanities, 10 religious exclamations, and many insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Friendship, truth, deception, honesty, sexism, equality, embezzling, stealing, greed, humiliation, judging people and pigeonholing people.

MESSAGE - We must not judge by appearances. The old boy network leads to corruption and incompetence.

(Note: People are shown on several occasions drinking alcohol to the point of inebriation, and smoking marijuana and tobacco. Several women who are deemed unattractive are shown and insults are hurled at them repeatedly; one woman calls herself a giant, one woman has a mustache and long hair under her armpits, one woman has a very shrill voice, a grating laugh and one of her legs is shorter than the other.)

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
