Before Sorority Boys there was Soul Man and before Soul Man there was Just One of the Guys. Disney’s latest unearths that shameless ‘80s movie trend where the college underdog is liberated via cultural/sexual infiltration. This time around the joke is considerably less serious (which means Sorority Boys becomes less offensive) but it’s ultimately downright asinine. Three idiots are kicked out of the K.O.K. fraternity house for allegedly stealing money and must dress up as women in order to retrieve a tape that proves their innocence. Director Wallace Wolodarsky couldn’t be any less concerned with the lessons learned by boys who must wear bras when their wallets are on the line. Predicated on endless d.o.g. references and winks at the male ass and penis, Sorority Boys begins to resemble one big joke in one tragically out-of-season pair of high heels. Knowledge is accidental (something in the end about ugly girls having feelings too) but Sorority Boys only confirms the threat posed to the film industry when homo-wary frat boys are allowed to play director. One mitigating factor: Harland Williams is so funny in drag he should consider permanent sex-reassignment.
