This is a great movie, don't believe the critics on this one. If you get this on DVD you can safely fast-forward through the two over-the-top gross out scenes that virtually assured this movie would get terrible reviews. The rest is pure comic genius in the often amusing, but rarely outstanding, field of teen/college comedy. This is my new favorite movie!
