During the scene where Paul sits at the fountain in the quad, the song Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel is playing. This scene is an homage to The Graduate (1967). Jason Biggs actually played the main role of Benjamin Braddock in a Broadway run of 'The Graduate' See more »
Though this was probably done for our benefit, while Dora is running for the "11:50" train, we hear a voice over the P.A. system say that particular train is leaving and from what track it's leaving from. Announcement are not made for departing trains in Grand Central Station. See more »

Unfairly condemned by the critics, this movie worked for me as a comedy and as a somewhat dark look at the mores of college life. Our hero may be branded a loser, but he's definitely a believable three-dimensional character (with a heart of gold, naturally). The story takes for granted some unethical and potentially unsettling behaviour, and allows the characters to rise above it.
Lets you smile throughout, and gives you some insights into contemporary life on campus without resorting to cliches.
