Sorority Wars is a 2009 American comedy-drama television film directed by James Hayman and written by Michelle Lovretta. It stars Lucy Hale, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Phoebe Strole, Amanda Schull, Rob Mayes, and Faith Ford. The film was shot in Vancouver and premiered on Lifetime on October 17, 2009.
Katie Parker (Lucy Hale) and Sara Snow (Phoebe Strole) have been friends since childhood. They enter college together, where Katie is a prized legacy candidate for the Delta sorority, which was co-founded decades ago by her mother, Lutie (Courtney Thorne-Smith) and Summer (Faith Ford), whose own daughter Gwen (Amanda Schull) now leads the Deltas on campus. Events occur during pledge week to cause a rift between Katie and the Deltas, which leaves Sara as a Delta pledge and Katie out in the cold. Katie joins the rival Kappa sorority, and the rivalry splits not just Katie and Sara, but extends all the way into the Delta alumnae association led by Lutie and Summer.

Reviews of the film were positive. Linda Stasi of the New York Post gave the movie a rating of 3.5 stars out of 4. She described it as "bizarrely entertaining in a mindless, I-need-to-veg-this-weekend kind of way." She praised lead actress Lucy Hale as "quite a talent". Writing for Variety, Brian Lowry had a similar opinion of the movie, calling it "moderately engaging" and "cheerfully mindless". He said that Hale was "very appealing".
