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)!

Format: DVD
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.

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.

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 ›
