Not sure about this one
25 September 2002 | by (Austin,Texas) – See all my reviews



I had really high expectations for this film. I have to say however that I was slightly disapointed. I guess after seeing Freddy Got Fingered, one really shouldn't expect such a masterpiece to ever be matched let alone topped. But if your a big Tom Green fan as myself your at least thinking you'll never be bored watching his films, right? Wrong. Watching Stealing Harvard had me actually thinking about other things I had to do that day, and that I was more than likely wasting valuable time sitting down seeing this film. The plot was thin, as usual with Tom Green but in this case it didn't have hardly any interesting moments to back it up, making it not work very well. The actors didn't seem to have any chemistry happening between them either and that is something that would've saved this movie, not exactly making it a hit but at least doing better. Then again what Tom Green movie has ever really been a hit? But if your a fan of Mr. Green then definatly go and see this film just for the experience. But dont say I didn't warn you...
