Product Description

Lisa Connors, an Anders University freshman, has big hopes of a job at the university newspaper. Her ambitious mother, Gwen, suggests Lisa should join a sorority, Pi Gamma Beta as she herself had great fun. Lisa applies to Pi Gamma Beta, the most prestigious sorority on campus. Lisa also talks her way into joining the school newspaper, even though she is not qualified. At the paper, she meets Steven Tyler, a fellow student with whom she becomes involved romantically. In order to join the sorority, mainly consisting of snobs who enjoy others' suffering, candidates must endure the cruel humiliation of hazing. Shelby Blake, another freshman desperate for sorority acceptance, immediately befriends Lisa. When Steven discovers Lisa and Shelby's experiences in connection with PGB, including, apparently, having to eat broken glass, he is appalled. He publishes an article critical of hazing. This leads to his being beaten up. Lisa refuses to cooperate when the sorority require the two applicants to strip and strut back and forth across a table while the sorority call out degrading and hurtful names and draw on the candidates' skin. In consequence, Lisa is absent when the girls take Shelby up a clock tower to hang a banner. Shelby falls to her death when sorority sister, Drea Davenport, orders her to go over the railing. The next day, Shelby's death is declared a suicide. Reluctant Lisa, with Steven's prompting, decides to investigate even though the hostile sorority claim it was an accident.

The movie was OK, very much "Made for TV" but it was alright. If you're a fan of Hilary Swank and/or Mark-Paul Gosselaar then I say go for it, otherwise, I'd skip this one.

Hilary Swank does a good job, no big surprise there. It was kind of cool to see Mark-Paul Gosselaar in something outside of playing Zack Morris in "Saved By the Bell".

I watched it a couple of times & then sold it, it's definitely not something you need to watch repeatedly. I love how the DVD box says, "2-Time Academy Award Winner" that's too funny, trying to push the sales are we?

HASH(0xa4545600) out of 5 stars Take it from a sorority girl this is classic lifetime good cheezy Oct. 31 2007
By Kelly A. Rodgers - Published on
Format: DVD
I first saw this back in college after I had pledged, though my experiance was no where near what was depicted in the movie. My other sorority sisters say the movie and we began quoting the movie "you want to win the sisterhood award" and later used it to show our anti-hazing education program to show new members what would not happen to them. Not all Greeks haze, but every Greek should watch this movie!

This movie deals with college peer pressure and sororities.
This features Hillary Swank before her mega stardom days, pre- "Boy's Don't Cry"
& "Million Dollar Baby", it is very evident early on, as with this picture, that
Hillary had major talent and was going to be a star. It also stars the side
kick to the star of the 90's tv show "Blossom," Jenna Van Oy, who also gave an
outstanding performance, nothing like her flaky character on Blossom.

I would recommend this to young girls, early teens, and especially parents'
whose daughters are going to be going away for college, it is a must see,
a real eye opener on how far some people will go just to be liked and to fit
in, literally in one girls' case dying to fit in.

I'm not a big fan of fraternities or sororities. (If only they really were what they proclaim themselves to be...) The title of this DVD exposes all that could go wrong when people (in any type of organization) are overcome by negativity.

Of course, there are many wonderful organizations out there. Dying to Belong dramatizes only the worst that can happen with the help of some now famous faces. If you enjoy an occasional cautionary tale about girls gone wrong, you'll love this film.
