Are they lined to the tragic death of the dean's daughter? Skeletons pop up from every closet and veiled threats fly as Toni follows the twisting trail of clues that leads to an intense and shocking surprise ending. Written by
"Rush Week" is an aggressively pointless movie. It's a "slasher" film, but barely qualifies as such. The body count is surprisingly low, and the death scenes shot as though the filmmakers wanted to get them out of the way as quickly and painlessly as possible. There is hardly any violence in the movie at all: it all happens off screen.
The movie is set in and around a college, and most of the run time is dedicated to showing unimpressive antics of two frat houses, one dedicated to respectability, the other the typical party-animal type. Neither ever do anything interesting.
You'd think that a feature length movie would be able to actually manage a character or two. You know, someone you remember for something. Anything. Not in "Rush Week". It has the guy from "Zapped Again", who actually did a pretty good job of carrying that movie. In this one, he isn't given anything to do. Neither is anyone else.
The movie is occasionally enlivened by some pretty impressive topless nudity, so I have to give it that, but you could get the same thrill looking at an old Playboy for a few seconds. Further, Gregg Allman is in it, in a completely bizarre cameo as a hippy professor.
I'm not sure what the bigger mystery around "Rush Week" is: How did they get Gregg Allman to star in this dreck, or why was it made in the first place?
