The movie H.O.T.S is a college romp film, that primarily focuses on the women, three in particular, of the H.O.T.S. Sorority. This sorority forms after some of the more traditional Greek organizations on campus deny entrance and also ridicule these girls. Well, there's never a dull moment, as the girls of the new sorority take part in various adventures, like sky-diving and even dealing with their house-keeper, who is also a robot! However, the girls are targeted for their adventurous behaviors by other students and the administration. In addition, they become the targets of some fumbling criminals, who are trying to recover money they've concealed in the newly renovated sorority building. The film, a comedy was released in 1979 and was directed by Gerald Seth Sindell and produced by W. Terry Davis. It came out on DVD in 2000. The main characters are actual Playmates, Pamela Bryant, Sandy Johnson, and Susan Kiger, in addition to the appearance of a former Miss USA 1972, Lindsay Bloom. Other actors feature, as well, as former child star from the Partridge Family, Danny Bonaduce, who is cast as a supporting character. Clad in their white sorority attire, the group attempts to raise money for their organization, to have a dance, and to play football. They and the rival sorority are continuously pranking one another, and comically, trying to avoid trouble. They rarely succeed in doing this, which makes the film funny; however, everything works out well, in the end. The movie can really be considered some mindless stress-relieving entertainment, and has been compared to some degree, to Revenge of the Nerds and Animal House. There are a lot of escapist situations and laughs, as these perky ladies and their fraternity friends encounter and take part in the various activities of the movie. The characters are pretty exaggerated and easy to laugh at, and the action keeps coming! And, of course, the ending is happy, and the underdog succeeds. So, there's a bit of feel-good warm fuzzy feeling here, and a bit of inspiration to persevere, as well. For many move-watchers, that's a most attractive feature. Too, more than half the reviews on critique site Rotten Tomatoes gave this film a favorable rating, also. It's certainly a movie worth watching, if you find appealing, that kind of cinema that can be termed very madcap and campy! If this is the case, why H.O.T.S may definitely be a film worth considering.
