Yale is never mentioned by name during the film, but there are plenty of references: - At the boat race, every team is mentioned by its school name, except for "The Bulldogs." (They're the Yale team.) - The characters wear Ys on their sports uniforms. - The Skulls are said to have "322 alumni worldwide." The Yale secret society Skull & Bones uses the number 322 as an identifier on many of its symbols. - The characters are seen celebrating at a pizza parlor they refer to as "Mory's," drinking from a big golden cup. Mory's is an actual place, and the tradition with the song and the big golden cup is accurate; however, it's a formal restaurant, not a pizza parlor, and actual Mory's cups are traditionally silver. - The new Skulls are sent to raid "Snake & Skeleton." There is a Yale secret society called "Book & Snake." - Some campus shots seem to purposefully mimic Yale buildings. There's a tower that looks a lot like Harkness Tower, and the dining hall looks like the one in Saybrook College. See more »

Well this film is one of the best of the year 2000.Why?Because it has a good plot , I enjoyed the action scenes and is a very intelligent story. Joshua Jackson plays a boy who enter in a secret sociaty "The Skulls" where he has marvelous cars , beautiful women and many other pleasures. But everything has a price ,so the pleasure turns in a psycologic thriller where the character "prays" to get out of the group.Behind the group there is a murder that is connected with Joshua's friend. The film is very enjoyable ,of corse that there are some mistakes in the plot, but that's O.K!!We understand!! Just watch the movie like a good distraction , don't judge everything ,be nice with this one. 8 out of 10
