Why bother?
14 December 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Fun at med school. Hurray! Yeah right! This is a stupid, ridiculous movie, not even good for its genre. Lots of beer, a few body parts, a bad dean, what else...

The first scene with the cadavre sets the tone of this abysmal movie. How low can you go? This one go pretty low on the tasteless, unfunny scale.

Why bother watching if not just to satisfy a bizarre urge to rate a bad movie.

Out of 100, I gave it 49. That's good for 0 stars out of 4.

Seen at home, in Welland, on December 14th, 2001.
