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 »

The Skulls is a very intense movie that keeps the watcher interested. This movie does not really have many qualities that would qualify it is an award-winner, but over all the movie is very interesting and is Definitely worth watching at least once. The deleted scenes included on the DVD are also worth watching, but you understand why they were cut. Joshua Jackson and Paul Walker were both very sharp in this movie, but some of the acting was a little poor. Through out the movie some flaws or holes could be found, yet all-in-all they did not affect the story line very much. In general The Skulls is an entertaining movie and I would recommend it.
