Yet another AMERICAN PIE imitator, this chauvinistic comedy pays lip service to equality of the sexes and objectifies women in crass ways. Totally shy and constantly tumescent college boy Matt (Jonathan Tucker) idealizes women in his racy fantasies. Unlike his coarse roommate, Rod (James DeBello), Matt isn't a swordsman out to chalk up conquests. One night, the sloshed Matt enters a basement elevator just as a blackout strikes, too drunk to notice that he's not alone. Matt sobers up during the power failure and bonds with the mystery coed who's trapped with him and, emboldened by darkness, finds that he isn't his usual tongue-tied self. Matt loses his virginity, but awakens alone the next morning — his Cinderella has left nothing behind but her panties! Deducing that his elevator-mate must live at the nearby sorority, Matt embarks on a quest for his dream girl. Assuming a number of guises (pizza guy, repairman, exterminator) to gain access to the rooms of 100 girls, he searches for the mystery girl. He becomes something of a mascot, and when Patty (Emmanuelle Chriqui) tangles with her abusive boyfriend, Crick (Johnny Green), Matt stands up to the imposing jock. Matt also renews his friendship with high school pal Wendy (Larisa Oleynik), a lesbian who helps him understand the feminine mystique. To that end, he befriends ugly duckling Dora (Marissa Ribisi) and prevents her suicide. Though he continues to scour the dorm for his soul mate, Matt learns to value the other 99 women. If he ever does reconnect with his dream girl, will she welcome his search and explain why she didn't answer the ad he placed in the college paper? Unfortunately, the film's Neanderthal vulgarity and stag humor undermine what could have been a sincere attempt to glorify the opposite sex.
