I am fairly sure this movie saw a whole host of nerds getting their ass kicked in the mid and late 1980s. The movie has a simple concept, a group of nerds goes to school completely unknown to each other. A bunch of jocks accidentally burn their house down and kick everyone out of the freshmen dorms. Eventually, the nerds find a home, fix it up and attempt to become their own fraternity.
When they discover they have to get sponsored by a national fraternity to do so, they become Lambda Lambda Lambdas and attempt to take over the greek counsel to force a vote so they can become official. This leads to a bunch of issues with the jocks, hilarity ensues. Tho I am fairly sure one of the sex scenes counts as rape since the one nerd pretends to be someone he isn’t to sleep with the woman he has a crush on, tho afterward she is also magically ok with it? So its a very odd scene that in today’s world would not fly at all. The movie itself is a classic and a must-watch for fans of the era. You can catch it now on Hulu. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
