Storyline

Monty is a student, and when his computer crashes, he's left with only a single paper copy of his thesis. Frightened of losing it, he immediately rushes out to photocopy it, only to stumble and drop it down a grate. Searching the basement of the building, he discovers that it has been found by Simon, a squatter. Simon makes a deal with Monty: for every day's accomodation and food that Monty gives him, he will give a page of the thesis in return. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

One of the best movies ever written, watched and created.
22 August 2002 | by (Napanee, Ontario) – See all my reviews



What couldn't you say about "With Honors"? I know! You couldn't say it was horrible, tasteless and uncreative movie. "With Honors" is what movies were intended to be like in the beginning of movie making. Like many or any good movies it has a great cast, excellent dialogue, and a small percentage of charm. In every cast members case this movie would have to be the climax of their career. Not one of the major cast members failed to become their characters. In fact, everyone hit a bullseye on what they were suppose to become. With four students and a bum, a college setting and a warm and interesting feeling, "With Honors" becomes a very realistic movie. One of which you wish was done on a home video, just to know that it was real.
