Storyline

A suspicious hunchback is spying through a scope on the UCLA campus from a tower which he makes his home out of, when his eye catches a beautiful girl. He lustfully keeps his eye on her until he sees her being violently pushed away while trying to stop a guy from beating up her boyfriend. This makes the hunchback mad and he makes himself known by swinging from a rope Tarzan style onto the campus and attacks the man who pushed the girl away. The hunchback is later taken into custody by campus officials and is later examined by the campus professors, Cathy, the beautiful girl, and Alex, her boyfriend. While on a ride back to the campus, the hunchback escapes the police car and is being chased by Alex, Cathy, and one of the professors riding along with them, Dr. Webster. He leads the trio to his tower and shows them the whole place. Dr. Webster then feels that it's best for him to stay there and he, along with Cathy, asks Alex to stay with the hunchback. After a long argument, Alex ... Written by Anonymous

Two Faces!
13 December 2005 | by (The Man-Cave) – See all my reviews

Big Man on Campus is a forgettable but pleasant little retelling of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It's pleasant because it's witty and silly and no one could get mad at Bob Maloogaloogaloogalooga (How many "loogas" are there supposed to be, anyway?). It's forgettable because other than some of the goofy stuff that the hunchperson says, there's not a single situation or person that really sticks to your memory.

BMOC was recommended to me by a good friend some ten years ago. She thought it was hilarious, and it is for someone in the mood for, well, this movie. The weakness in the movie is that it fairly reeks of B-movie, bottom of the bill, late-night-on-Cinemax-before-the-porn-lite starts.

Oh, well. If you find it and you have 90+ minutes to blow, why not. Just remember that when you get hungry and you order out for fried chicken, get the Two-Face meal.
