WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A sorority queen needs “diversity” in her sorority in order to compete for FHM’s sorority of the year. Of course, she’ll make it as miserable as possible for any girl that hopes to join her elite status.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
On my digital camera, there’s a feature where you can record a couple of minutes of video. I play with it every now and again, but the picture is always off center, the sound is always bad and everyone is always uncomfortable when there’s a camera around. Well, that about sums up PLEDGE THIS. I’m hesitant to call it the worst movie ever made, but it’s definitely up there. I wasn’t joking about the picture being off center and the sound being messed up. It really seems that the whole movie was filmed by a little kid and his toy video camera. Basically, it doesn’t seem like the director had any film school training or knows anything about film equipment.

This would also be a good opportunity to bash the dreadful Paris Hilton, but I’m not going to. We know she’s a whore, we know she’s petty, and we know the world hates her. What we don’t know is whether or not she can act. She didn’t even try in this monstrosity, so I’m still not sure. She just showed up and let the cameras role. The only semi-bright spot is the lovely Paula Garces. I don’t know why she did this, but if she plays her cards right, she could get a decent role in a future film. Also, I know you're wondering, so I'll go ahead and mention that there is nudity, but it's done in such an un-erotic way that it takes all the fun out of it.

I knew going in to this that the story and acting were going to be bad. However, nothing prepared me for the cut-rate quality of the filmmaking. Your average local TV commercial is filmed with more care and skill than this film. You would think that a quick trip to the local university would get you a better director than this guy. I don’t know how he got the job, but I can only guess he had some dirt on Paris Hilton.
THE EXTRAS
The screener disc didn't contain any special features, but on the regular release, there is one "making-of" featurette.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
This is a bad DVD on all accounts. The T&A was as un-sexy as possible, the acting, filmmaking and writing was atrocious and the DVD itself is horrible.
