FtL 424 – Sorority

MTV try to make an all-female version of Animal House, updated for the late 90s with Blink 182 and casual homophobia.

This week Failure to Launch examines a late-90s relic from MTV, Sorority. An attempt to riff on classic college comedies like Animal House, but with a twist: instead of misfit dudes fighting the stuck up arseholes in the snooty frat, it’s all about misfit women fighting the stuck up arseholes in the snooty, uh… sorority.

Sounds kinda progressive, right? Well it was still the late 90s, so hahaha no.
