Product Description

Product Description

From the producer of Bruce Almighty and Liar Liar comes a whole new school of thought: Accepted. When every college turns him down, Bartleby "B" Gaines decides to make one up. Welcome to the South Harmon Institute of Technology, where the students teach the classes, the dean lives in a trailer in the back, and Bartleby's on the way to scoring with the girl of his dreams. It's a raunchy, rowdy, flat-out funny college comedy that critics are calling "freakin' hilarious" (Steven Chupnick, MovieWeb.com)!

Product Description

Bartleby (B.) Gaines is a fun loving slacker who unfortunately gets turned down for every college he applied for much to the charign of his overly expectant parents. So with a little cutting and pasting he creates the South Harmon Institute of Technology and lo and behold he is accepted (along with his friends Rory Hands and Glen whose college plans were also all but dashed). However his parents want to see the website the campus and the dean. So now he has his other friend Sherman (who has been accepted to the prestigious Harmon College) build a web page they lease out an abandoned psychiatric hospital and they hire Sherman s uncle Ben (played to perfection by comedian Lewis Black) to be the dean. Problem solved? Not quite. The web page was done so well that hundreds of students show up at the front door all of which were turned down by other colleges. Faced with no choice Bartleby decides to proceed with turning South Harmon into a real college and sets about figuring out what to teach and how to teach it. Meanwhile at Harmon dean Van Horne meets with Hoyt Ambrose a rich law student and head of the KBE fraternity (which Sherman is trying to become a member of) to discuss building a gateway for Harmon using land presently being used by South Harmon. He tries finding the leaseholder of the land to no avail. Meanwhile his girlfriend Monica catches him cheating on her and a big party at South Harmon lures a chunk of Harmon s students away including Monica into the arms of Bartleby. Now Hoyt uses Sherman knowing he has been bouncing between the two schools in an attempt to bring South Harmon down for good. However Bartleby has an accreditation appointment with the state Board of Education to prove South Harmon s worthiness. Can he legally bring the South Harmon Institute of Technology to life and win the love of Monica?. Actors: Adam Herschman - Blake Lively - Columbus Short - Jonah Hill - Justin Long. Director: Steve Pink. Format: DVD. Format Size: Widescreen. Runtime

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun Nov. 24 2006
The South Harmon Institute of Technology (S.H.I.T.) will become a campus you will wish to visit and revisit again and again and the following are the reasons why.

Occasionally when you go to review something you are taken completely by surprise. Accepted is one such movie. Both the movie and the features on the DVD will be completely unexpected. I was expecting a frat party film along the line of Animal House or The Revenge of the Nerds series, and ended up with something closer to With Honors. The movie actually deals with some great questions - questions about personal integrity, traditions, growth and values.

This DVD is packed full of special features with something for everyone, such as commentaries, deleted scenes, gag reel, music videos and more. The best part of the fun is the self-guided tour of the campus. The virtual tour of S.H.I.T. takes you through the main sets, with mini commentaries on parts of the film that took place on these sets.

Justin Long and Lewis Black lead an all-star comedic cast in a romp through University life, as if the students ran the show. The gag reel will have you on the floor laughing as the cast takes the jokes on and off screen to extremes.

The feature commentary with director Steve Pink, and stars Justin Long, Lewis Black, Jonah Hill and Adam Herschman is a barrel of laughs; they seemed to have as much fun commenting about the film as they did on screen during the actual movie. They spent time mocking commentaries on DVDs, critiquing scenes and joking with each other. Early on they say if you make it through the commentary you will need psychiatric help, and though that may be true for their characters and the actors themselves, the commentary is hilarious.

3.0 out of 5 stars acceptable Aug. 6 2007
Tired of being rejected by colleges and universities he applied to, Bartleby Baines (Justin Long) decides to create a 'fake' university, the South Harmon Institute of Technology (S.H.I.T.). He wants to make his parents proud of who he is, by becoming accepted at that university. With the help of some friends, he will create a too-good-to-be-true place where many students will be accepted.

Is it funny? Yes, most times. Clichéd? Very much so. Predictable? Definitely.

ACCEPTED is still an enjoyable comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars [3.5]--Far from perfect, but nowhere near ruins June 25 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
This movie said so many things I've been rambling about for over a decade. The American education system is absolutely .....not that great. College is a joke and the make believe college that Gaines creates appropriately abbreviated is really a decent movie. It does make you want to go out and do something you've been wanting to do for a while.

Enter "Accepted," directed by John Cusack pal Steve Pink and led by the likable Justin Long (the smart nerdy kid in "Galaxy Quest" and more recently featured in Apple computer ads), about a bunch of kids who don't get accepted to college and decide, as disclosed in the trailer, to fake a bogus one to get their parents off their backs. When they go a little too far with the website and other kids end up enrolling, the kids have a few problems to solve.

Yes, the film does feel familiar in some spots; there's a debt here owed, of all places, to "Revenge of the Nerds." Those who are rejected by everyone else find a home with Bartleby and his cohorts, and of course the villains are steroid-enhanced conformist Master Race types who run a fraternity and seek to humiliate and bury the oddity for the - gasp - crime of being different.

But that aside, "Accepted" has fun with the material, and even asks a few decent questions about the expectations on college kids and the course of higher education. Not that it's a brain teaser by any means, but Accepted isn't just another mindless teen comedy (or Owen Wilson vehicle). While not a great departure from its genre, it's intelligent enough to be an enjoyable movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scores pretty high on the comedy finals Feb. 16 2007
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Let's say you've been something of an underachiever in high school, living a Ferris Bueller-like life and not exactly hitting the books very hard. You're a pretty cool guy, but now it's time to face reality. The closest you've gotten to the class hottie is her front lawn (which she flirted you into mowing for her) and -- horror of horrors -- every single college you applied to has turned you down flat (which is going to come as quite a blow to your parents). What do you do? Well, naturally, there's only one thing to do -- have your nerdy best friend (Jonah Hill) create a fancy web site for a nonexistent college, fake an acceptance letter from said college, and use dad's tuition money to lease an abandoned mental hospital that you can clean up and pass off as an actual educational institution. It helps if you have a few friends joining you in this whole crazy scheme -- friends like Hands (Columbus Short), who lost his athletic scholarship because of an injury, Glen (Adam Herschman), who probably can't even spell college, and Rory (Maria Thayer), a totally cute redhead who only applied to one school (Yale) and had her cherished dreams dashed at the manicured hands of smarmy Ivy League administrators who probably all talk like Thurston Howell, III. Certainly, it takes some work to turn a filthy, abandoned loony bin into a "college" impressive enough to fool your parents when they drop you off, but it's going to be all fun and games after they leave, right? It might be -- if about 300 other folks didn't show up with acceptance letters and tuition money in hand (seems that good old Sherman made the college web site a little too functional). Read more ›
