If anyone was wondering whether class divisions are still alive and well, look no further than the very lame NATIONAL LAMPOON'S PLEDGE THIS for definitive proof. This sorry, mean-spirited, predictable sex comedy categorizes every girl as either a nice butt, thin abs, or a disgrace for being fat. It does nothing to help girls like themselves and only promotes Paris Hilton's inexplicable celebrity. Maybe Pledge This! is trying to be a female Revenge of the Nerds, but not only is it not smart enough -- believe it or not -- but it's just plain not funny enough. There's nothing to recommend in this hastily slapped-together, cheaply shot film.

National Lampoon is famous for its frat boy spoofs. Insofar as the film aims to be a satire of the Mean Girls and American Pie genre, it's successful, making explicit the implicit social rules of the teen world. It's not enough that the girls are thin, beautiful, and willing to act slavishly toward Victoria. They also have to be millionaires. Add to that the film's attitude that girls are nothing but "fresh poontang" for college boys, and you have plenty of reasons to keep teens away.
