    Weak plot padded out with scenes that end up having little relevance to other events in the movie, almost like a collection of frat house and college themed sketches. That wouldn't be so bad if the scenes were funny, but the movie only managed to raise two or three laughs from me. The main characters often came across as unpleasant and vindictive, and their lying, cheating, stealing and misogyny put me firmly on the side of the Dean.
    The soundtrack's pretty good though, and the acting's OK for the most part, if a little broad.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't find this to be that great. There were one or two parts where I actually laughed, but for the most part I was just bored. 7 years 8 months ago
