Sort of like "Animal House"...if it was produced by Disney!
2 November 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Call Her Mom" is a kooky college movie. However, although it was made in the same decade that brought us "Animal House", this made for TV film is much more like a Disney film of the era. In other words, this 'bad' fraternity looks amazingly nice...other than just being sloppy. The guys are decent enough--not the degenerates of many other campus comedies.

When the film begins, the Dean (Charles Neslson Reilly) is taking delight in telling APE fraternity that he's revoking their charter because they don't have a house mother. So the guys go on a fast search for one and come up with a waitress, Angie (Connie Stevens). However, the administration is aghast because this house mother is hot...and they do their best to get rid of her. But she sticks with it and everything seems fine...until one of the young men falls in love with her.

This is the most sanitized bawdy fraternity film of all time. It also comes off as more of a sit-com instead of a movie--with some incredible mugging from not only Reilly but Van Johnson. Mildly entertaining...and a bit stupid at the same time.
