I never heard of this movie before my friend introduced me to it. I thought, "The dude from Saved by the Bell? How lame is this going to be!"
Au contraire! This has to be the best movie MTV films ever put out. While the idea is somewhat funny in itself (passing college by finding a suicidal roommate, guaranteeing yourself A's from the trauma regardless of your failing grades), it's the characters that make this movie. Cliff, the drooling party-animal frat boy who is so high he sets a chick's hair on fire trying to lite a bong... Buckley, the egocentric computer geek who believes Bill Gates wants him for his brain and will sacrifice himself to prevent an apocolypse... and let's not forget Matt, the depressive British muscian who wears everything he brought to college and might not make it long enough to play the pre-finals party. Even the locals at the bar are great. "Some people eat bugs!"
Believe me, if you liked Happy Gilmore, Tommy Boy or anything of that genre, you will love this movie. It's got tons of hilarious quotes you and your friends will be saying again and again.
I leave you with one more... "Cooper, I'm really serious when I say I need to study! And Josh, I'm really serious when I say I need to clean my bong."
