Present-day college students Adam and Eve meet cute but they're total opposites. Eve took a virginity pledge while Adam pledged a fraternity. The film takes both pledges very seriously, especially Adam's. National Lampoon's Adam and Eve (2005) clings to its franchise's Animal House-Van Wilder legacy with a ratty house on a hill where Adam's fraternity brothers (like Munch and Ferguson) throw parties. Even director Jeff Kanew knows about the Frat Life as he directed Revenge of the Nerds (1984). This film's way lower budget than Nerds. Scenes are shot in murky natural lighting where you can't see shit. I do see every window is covered up to prevent outside light from coming in the shot.

Good chance to see a leading performance from Cameron Douglas ("Hollywood's royalty's next generation" as the trailer unfortunately pegs him) before he became Page Six fodder. Warning, he does sing and play guitar in a coffee house like it's the '90s. The end credits lists the songs two at a time and, let me tell you, the end credits go on forever.
