***SPOILERS*** Over the top suspense mystery that takes place on an unnamed eastern Maryland collage. Having found out that if a roommate at collage commits suicide you get an automatic 4.0 average both Tim, Matthew Lillard, and Chris, Michael Vartan, who are sub-par students concoct a plan to get their other roommate Rand, Randall Batinkoff, to kill himself!
Rand a nasty and arrogant creep who's constituently humiliating his girlfriend Natalie,Tamara Craig Thomas, in public and making a complete a** of himself is the perfect candidate to knock off with nobody, not even his family members, even missing him.
Even though at first he thought it was a joke on Tim's part Chris reluctantly goes along with the plan to do Rand in. This happens late one evening at the light-tower just outside of the collage campus. Getting a very depressed Rand, who had just found out that Natalie is pregnant, to dink a full bottle of whiskey laced with rat poison he goes into convolutions and loses consciousness. With Tim leaving a suicide note in the empty bottle it's made to look like Rand did himself in over Nataie, after telling him that he knocked her up, dumping him.
With Chris not having the guts to throw Rand down the Cliff, to make it look like he jumped, Tim finishes the job in having him fall to his death, if he wasn't dead already, to the dangerous rocks some 100 feet below. It's then that things start to get a bit, to put it mildly, out of hand with Chris not willing to get, feeling that he didn't earn it, his well deserved 4.0 average and his partner in crime Tim doing everything he can to implicate him in Rands murder!Tim goes as far as staging a tryst with Chris' girlfriend Emma, Keri Russell, for Chris to see in order to get him go to the cops and confess not only his but Tim's crime! While all this is going on Rand's body is never recovered and thus making it impossible for both Tim and Chris to get their coveted 4.0 average and thus being eligible to enter Harvard or Yale!
The movie really gets ridicules in it's myriad of twists and turns that are so incomprehensible that their about as illogical as subatomic Quantom reality is towards modern Newtonian physics! You finally get the picture in the end to what's the story behind Rand's demise and who was really the person or persons behind it. But by then your brain has been so brutally battered and beaten by the films confusing and convoluted storyline, with about a half dozen plot twist, that you don't really care what it is!
