Luke McNamara (Joshua Jackson) is a working class college student struggling to come up with the tuition to pay for Harvard Law. He's an elite rower and hopes to be pick by The Skulls who supposedly pay for tuition. He's in love with Chloe (Leslie Bibb) but reluctantly to show it because of her family wealth. He gets picked by the Skulls and steal a rival mascot with Caleb Mandrake (Paul Walker) as a test. They are put together as "soulmates". His membership in the Skulls causes a split with his friend Will. Caleb's father Litten (Craig T. Nelson) is the chair of The Skulls. Senator Ames Levritt (William Petersen) is a member. Will steals Caleb's key and breaks into The Skulls. Caleb catches Will. Later Luke finds Will dead after a supposed suicide. Detective Sparrow (Steve Harris) investigates.
Will's reaction to Luke after he got into The Skulls needs to be explained better right from the beginning or else it feels too abrupt. It's not like Luke didn't explain why he needs the Skulls. That scene almost destroys this movie single-handedly with the overacting. Luke is a much more compelling character if he's concentrated on the tuition. When he seems to be too greedy, he loses that rooting interest. Then it just gets too much and too ridiculous. It is an excessive story about excess.
