Storyline

Zeke Lareau and Auggie Jacobs are two college seniors who have never met. Both are only a semester away from graduation, or so they think. During a night out on the town, a bar scuffle breaks out and mistakenly lands them in the county jail. After spending the night in cells joined by a window, they discover that although their personalities are night and day in comparison, they both share personal desires for Auggie's extremely liberated ex-girlfriend, Laina, as well as a desire for the truth. Zeke and Auggie soon find themselves engulfed in local stardom after teaming up in film class for a locally broadcasted mini-documentary that reveals Laina's lesbian life style and Zeke and Auggie's unique interests in her. But that stardom soon places Zeke and Auggie in the greatest struggle of their lives when their second documentary, which exposes a nationally acclaimed professor as a sexual offender, is met by opposition from the university, as well as the local authorities.

Drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth
14 December 2005 | by (Sioux City, IA) – See all my reviews

I would have given this movie a rating of 4 out of 10, but my ex-girlfriend's brother made it and well, she's hot.

If you are thinking about seeing it, let me tell you this: I think anyone who takes the chance to watch it will probably enjoy it, simply because you'll probably get what you expect from it. Someone watching this movie and getting mad after wards because they thought it sucked is the equivalent of someone entering the Daytona 500 with a Volvo, then blaming the car that they didn't win.

I will say this for the movie, even though the acting isn't of high quality, among other things, I have found myself quoting the movie more than once or telling a friend about parts of it, despite the fact that when I first saw it I rolled me eyes and said "oh please." This movie has an aftertaste similar to drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth.
