This is the type of film critics seem to like, for me it was just a big bore-fest.
Newly transferred college student Lily becomes friends with Violet, Heather and Rose, a clique who run the campus’ suicide prevention centre. Over the course of the film, the four girls date less attractive men in order to help the men’s confidence; they try to clean up the “unhygenic” Doar Dorm; they clash with the editor of the campus newspaper The Daily Complainer, who wants to close down the “elitist” Roman letter fraternities; and finally they try to start a new dance craze, called The Sambola!
