College based comedy seems to have been made up on the spot
14 February 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Frankie Darro, Mantan Moreland and Keye Luke in the tale of a college rowing team. It seems that the new guy and hope for the team to win the state championship has been drafted. Not wanting to let the girls down the boys end up getting a guy off the street to pretend to be the great new rower at a party. Unfortunately now that "Herc" has a taste for college life he won't leave and now its up to the guys to get him through classes and to make him into a great rower.

Having the slimmest of plots this movie slips from scene to scene with no clear direction in mind (its better in pieces rather than as a whole). Occasionally it pauses for some passable, but forgettable songs before heading off toward its conclusion, though like much of this movie it seems to have been made up on the spot. Frankie Darro is good as always, Mantan is good but isn't on screen enough. Keye Luke is completely wasted in a role that has him spouting Charlie Chan like bits of wisdom and knocking the coaches glasses off. Its an okay time killer, the sort of thing you put on when you don't want to be taxed on any level. Worth seeing if you run across it
