There are three parts to this film. It begins as a slapstick comedy, then transitions to a crime/hero story, and finally to a melodrama romance... although there are numerous inappropriate jokes throughout the film. To be honest, this film was quite enjoyable and light-hearted. It had me guessing and I wasn't sure where the story was headed, but it all seemed to come together nicely.
The story follows Cheer, a college freshman majoring in architecture who is determined to make a name for himself. When the male dorm is to be demolished because "guys are dirty and don't take care of their dorm," he and his roommates get into some trouble. The lads decide to prove that the ladies are just as revolting as they are, resulting in a "battle" with the female students at the institution. More turmoil ensues as a result of this, as well as dubious dealings with the college administration.
The acting was excellent. I thought all of the characters to be amusing, but when they needed to be serious, they did so as well. The music was excellent, making the film more humorous in places and serious in others. If I wanted a laugh, I'd probably watch it again. I gave it an 8 because I thought it was a well-rounded plot with many enjoyable components and high production values. If you're looking for something to do to pass the time or if you have a short attention span, keep an eye out. The movie keeps you awake since it contains so many diverse topics.
