Spike pegged this. He couldn't get it all in, but he was darn close. The light-skinned vs. the dark-skinned, exclusionary syndrome perpetrated by Black Greeks to non-Greeks, Homecoming, the sweaty and hot parties, the rift/resentment between lower-class local Blacks and the students, sexuality... It was great. Unfortunately, my main man Spike failed to make it universal, so if you ain't what I mentioned in my one-line summary, you might not get it. God Bless the ones that try to understand the mentality instead of dogging out the man's obvious and enormous filmmaking talent. You can hate Kobe Bryant for taking all the darn shots, but you can't hate the young man's game! PEACE!

If you aren't Black and/or you didn't go to an all-black university, you might not get it...Reviewed bychauncey_washingtonVote: 10/10
Most of the people who watched this movie never have been to a historically black college and or university. That's why people don't get it. Spike Lee captured many of the essential essences that make the black college experience unique. So, before you degrade the picture like so many have before you, get a point of reference to compare it
This movie isn't for everyone so if you are afraid of talking about racism, colorism and other types of discrimination this movie is not for you.
If you interested in watching something enlightening and educational, this is a movie that is worth the celluloid it was recorded on.
The first time I saw this movie, I was very young and unaware and did not realize the importance of this movie.
However, after seeing it as an adult, I have to say that it was quite ahead of its time and still very relevant today.
If you purchase or rent the DVD, make it a point to listen to the director's commentary. It was very enlightening to learn that a lot of what was going on in the movie was actually happening while he was filming this movie and that is what makes it all that much more important of a film. It was also interesting what he did to create the friction between the groups as well. There was mention of how sorority sisters were being treated by the fraternity men in these colleges. It was also ironic to hear that the person chosen to be play the president of the university was frowned upon because of the way he looked.
I only gave it a 9 because the only flaw that I could find in it was that it could have gone deeper in the discussion of colorism. I feel it did not go deep enough. However as I stated, it is relevant and ahead of its time.
