Plot

The story starts out with the regular lives of three friends (Doofer, Dave, and Adam) who are head Social Committee in a frat house called KOK (Kappa Omicron Kappa). The KOK are known for throwing heavy parties and socially discriminating the members of the sorority DOG (Delta Omicron Gamma) who regularly protest the actions of the KOK. Doofer, Dave and Adam are then falsely accused of stealing money from the fraterniry. As the money goes towards the end of the year 'KOK-tail Cruise' at the end of the semester, the one that guarantees them a spot at a very high paying company no matter how low their IQ is, it is very important. The three are then thrown out of their fraternity.

The three realize that the proof they need to prove their innocence is on a video tape still in the KOK house. In order to infiltrate the house, the three follow Doofer's plan of dressing up as women (however unattractive) to get inside. They are however unsuccessful as someone else has moved into their room, one that develops a crush on Adina (aka Adam). Then they are thrown out of the house when they are mistaken for being a 'DOG'.

Thrown onto the DOG's doorstep, they are immediately accepted by the group for being 'plus-sized' girls. Since there is free room and board to those who pledge for the first semester at DOG, they decide to pledge to hide out for some time. While the boys deal with the hardships of being women, they subjugated to all kinds of amuse from a fellow sorority, the 'Tri-Pis' (Pi Pi Pi). They also have to figure out a way of getting the tape back.

While Adina (aka Adam) tries to seduce a fellow KOK brother Jimmy to get the tape, Daisy (aka Dave) is falling for the DOG president Leah. Roberta (aka Doofer) is getting to know the other girls and help them with their self-esteem. Their influence on the DOG girls gives both the KOK boys a little incite on what goes on for girls, while they help the girls to better themselves and like themselves.

The movie ends with the guys being revealed to the KOKs and DOGs, before they reveal that they were indeed innocent of stealing the money and the perpetrator (the president) is punished. The DOGs finally get revenge on the Tri-Pi's as well as the boys getting reinstated into the KOK. Dave makes things up with Leah as Dave and not Daisy, and the KOK try to make themselves better men. Adam is instated as president, and many of the KOK guys are now dating the DOG girls.
