Along their way in helping everybody at the college, the damsels teach the fraternity doofi to hit the books, they get their hearts broken, but then attempt to start an international dance craze.

A Quick Review: This has to be one of the strangest films I’ve seen in a long time and I’m still not sure if it’s in a good way. It was oddly hypnotising in it’s kooky ways and the humour was hard to get used to - to be honest it was played so ‘straight’ I don’t even know if it was meant to be funny! I finished the film mainly due to Adam Brody’s presence but the rest of the girls weren’t horrendous. It was just extremely quirky and a bit of a love/hate film. I appreciated what it was trying to do and it was refreshing I suppose, I just don’t think it was my cup of tea...

Score: 6/10
