Three men relive their carefree college years in this over-the-top comedy. After Mitch (Luke Wilson) returns home from a business trip one evening to discover his wife, Heidi (Juliette Lewis), involved in a ménage à trois, he decides to rent a house near the campus of a nearby college. Two of Mitch’s old college buddies, Beanie (Vince Vaughn) and Frank (Will Ferrell), soon become regular guests at Mitch’s place, despite the fact that Frank only recently wed Marissa (Perrey Reeves), while Beanie and his wife, Lara (Leah Remini), are busy with two kids. Beanie decides to throw a housewarming party for Mitch, who soon finds he’s the not-entirely-willing proprietor of the school’s leading party spot, which raises the ire of Pritchard (Jeremy Piven), a dean at the college who was the target of Mitch, Frank and Beanie’s abuse when they were all students. Pritchard arranges to have Mitch’s neighborhood zoned into a student housing district, but Beanie and Frank respond by forming a fraternity and making Mitch’s home their headquarters. Mitch, however, is not enthusiastic about the idea, especially as he’s trying to impress Nicole (Ellen Pompeo), a beautiful divorcee who is less than enchanted with Frank and Beanie’s “party hearty” lifestyle.
