I'm sorry I lumped you in the face, mate. Fancy a sneaky quick one?
No, no, no. I think you've given me enough sneaky quick ones for the day. Thank you, Seamus.

no surprises, you know you're going to get a lot of college clichés and jokes
This movie was OK, but certainly no where near as good as a lot of college/party films. The character of Taj is pretty funny as well as his band of misfits in the Cock and Bulls frat. The geeky guy was probably the best. And Pip is certainly a slime ball. Taj comes to England to be a student teacher. He is also the house leader of a frat. He wants to win the Hastings Cup and really stick it to Pip. A lot of the film is Taj charming Pip's girl, Charlotte. There is also Sadie a member of Taj's frat, whom one could say has an ample bussom that is played for laughs.
Overall, there are a few laughs, but it has a long ways to go before I would call it a funny movie.
FINAL VERDICT: If you have to see every movie that is sort of like Animal House or Beerfest, then check this out. Otherwise, I would skip it.
