In class he meets Dora, a pretty coed who needs a job to pay for school, and who's the very young lover of their sarcastic and selfish lit professor. When Dora is slipped some drugs at a party, Paul nurses her back to health, and a friendship follows. For Paul, though, it's more than friendly feelings.

Did You Know?


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 »


Near the end when Chris and Adam are talking to Dora about their scheme to sabotage/blackmail next semester's professors, Chris incorrectly says "for us women, for you men". He accidentally said the genders in the reverse. See more »


Adam: [noticing Paul's dorky hat] That is a great hat! Did the producers of Fargo have a garage sale?

Not as bad as people say
28 October 2003 | by (Picton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know why people like to bash this movie, it is a nice little remake of the 1960 classic "the apartment" where in a businessman sells out to his bosses so they can use his apartments to have affairs with other women, but when one attempts suicide in his house, it happens to be the one he falls in love with, the same story is evident here, Biggs plays the role well, and Suvari could play Shirley MacLaine in future remakes, the same with Kinnear and MacMurray, this could become one of those films that could get young people involved into the classics.
