This film is great. It's playing in our area on the Showtime Next
channel. We highly recommend it. Although we didn't attend college in
Illinois, this movie perfectly portrays what it's like to go to any
major US university. It's funny, heartfelt and above all, realistic.
Movies like ROAD TRIP and AMERICAN PIE 2 are fun, but they don't capture
the true essence of the college experience. LOVE 101 does.
I don't know where it's playing other than on Showtime, but if you get a chance to see it, check it out.
Drew (Andrew) witnessed his parents' divorce when he was 11 and how it
ruined his father's life. Now, Drew is in college and as a handsome young
man has become a serial seducer. He easily meets and sleeps with women only
to dump them. Drew doesn't do relationships; he doesn't even do second
Joe, Drew's roommate, willingly puts up with being denied access to his room every time there is a `sock on the doorknob' and the two boys are actually good friends even though Joe is the polar opposite of Drew. Not terribly attractive and a bit of a nebbish around women, Joe has been attracted to Shayna, a girl in his Chem. class for weeks but has not worked up the courage to ask her out.
When Joe confesses his infatuation to Drew just before Thanksgiving break, Drew advises him to `just go for it' and Joe resolves to follow that advice and ask Shayna out as soon as he returns. Unfortunately while Joe is away, Drew and Shayna meet up in a bar and the inevitable happens. In the morning Drew treats her as he has so many others, only to realize too late, that his feelings for her are different.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that this film had this much depth. What I expected to be another hormone driven teen movie actually turned out to have a well crafted story-line and some insight into how the characters might feel. I'd recommend this film and look forward to seeing more by this film-maker.
This is a great movie.I was not sure what to expect but I am glad I watched this one. It really depicts what college life is like. I loved the resident R.A. He made me laugh at the way he was both friend and baby sitter to his group of charges. The movie moves along at a nice clip.Funny and very enjoyable from start to finish. Appealing for a wide range of ages, young to the young at heart. Michael Muhney shines as Andrew the dorm hound dog who has a one night stand with his room mates dream girl. A talented cast of young actors make this a movie worth watching. Whether you are in college or just want to remember that time in your life sign up for a crash course in Love 101.
Anyone who is in college or has gone to college knows what it is really about and it's not getting a good education. It's basically just getting drunk and trying to sleep with as many girls as possible. The fun thing about drinking is if you drink enough you end up waking up with a few strange girls and having a horrible headache and temporary loss of memory. However, when they are talking to their friend poking fun at him about having a drinking problem over drinking 11 or 12 beers a night, that's sad. We all know like 20 guys and 1 or 2 girls who drink like that. It's cool how the friends play basketball and work out go get drunk on any night, cause that's how my life is. And we all know a guy who is a gym freak and talks about nothing but lifting weights but who is not really built at all. Oh yeah, this movie has nudity in it so I give it a 7. Catch it if you are up late and there's nothing else really on.
Loads of fun! Reminded me of my college days... Thinking man's Animal House, smarter and better than all the other one's in its genre
If you are not from the Midwest (let alone Chicago), or didn't attend
Northern Illinois University, or you are not enrolled in a university right
now, you probably wouldn't understand the script of this film.
The actors/actresses overall do a fine job with the script, although you will catch some flaws along the way, but portraying Midwestern college kids they do not. The lines in the film are a bunch of cliche, one-liners, that would be difficult to understand for the average moviegoer. Some of the scenes get boring and can run rather long.
The story is basic, but it works. Two roommates, one girl, one dorky guy is enamored with her, the cool guy gets her. What's going to happen?!
The movie makes you kind of want to go back to college and stay there, but is it all believeable? You make the call.
