ENTERTAINING !
30 August 2001 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I've seen some of the bad comments that the users gave and was quite surprised.Seriously folks,this is one REALLY entertaining movie.I was laughing throughout the movie. I believe that Mark and Tom really played their parts superbly.Being a university student,I really could relate with what was happening and I think that made it funnier to watch Cooper and Josh make plans only to find that it fails :-) Obviously,this is not some kind of serious,thinking movie....and thank God,it doesn't try to be.Full of humor and sarcastic jokes,I am sure you'll enjoy this movie especially if you're a college/university student....I've watched it 3 times and still laugh when watching it! The music is also superb,considering the fact that it was produced by THE dust brothers...so.....sit back,relax....after a hard day's of studying/whatever the hell u do in college....and watch Dead Man On Campus! Satisfaction guaranteed.
