2002 has seen some pretty horrid films. Crossroads, 40 Days and 40 Nights, Eight Legged Freaks, Rollerball, Swimfan...the list is long. With Stealing Harvard, it is made even longer.
I don't know how this film got past the production studio. Its story is full of holes of titan sized proportions. The dialogue is filled with lame attempts at humor that do nothing but fail. The characters are pathetic one-dimentional stereotypes that annoy the audience. Even the music seems second-rate and fails to set the mood accordingly.
That makes four strikes: more than enough to throw this garbage out.
