Since "ANIMAL HOUSE", there have been countless attempts to obtain the same core audience of fans. With the exception of "OLD SCHOOL" and a few others, most have been horrible. "GOING GREEK" actually has a few laughs, but they're too few and far between for most discerning viewers.
The ho-hum plot revolves around two cousins pledging a fraternity. The fraternity is really only interested in one of them due to his football skills, necessary to help them beat a rival fraternity in an upcoming football game the two will spar off in.
As with most straight-to-video films, to substitute for a lack of great laughs, there's usually a substantial supply of nudity. There's some, but it's again too little for most viewers to be distracted from the film's other shortcomings.
HART SHOP VIDEO has presented the film with its proper 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The image is decent, but there are plenty of scenes suffering from excessive grain. There is also some compression related artifacts.
HART SHOP VIDEO has presented a Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. Surround use is virtually non-existent. There is some limited separation in the front soundstage, but it's fairly restrained as well. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.
