Mitch Martin (Luke Wilson), Frank Ricard (Will Ferrell) and Bernard "Beanie" Campbell (Vince Vaughn) are feeling a little disillusioned -- Mitch with a relationship that's recently gone sour, Frank with his new marriage and Beanie with his old comfortable one. Collectively the trio yearn for the wild and crazy days of adolescence, and so, at Beanie's suggestion, they make the house that Mitch has just moved into the stomping grounds for their newly formed fraternity, consisting of misfit college students. As they try to stay ahead of their nemesis, the vindictive Dean Gordon (Jeremy Piven), and stumble their way through all the partying and hazing, Mitch, Beanie and Frank somehow regain balance in their lives -- rediscovering their glory days but now with a newfound appreciation of adulthood.
