An honest account of normal college youth
20 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at Sundance and thought it was the most true movie I've ever seen about college life. Other college movies focus on Cinderella stories or toga parties or bad student behavior. This film is a funny story of a real person going to a real college and struggling with real minor issues with real friends in the real world. I would say that a vast majority of those in college are not living the outrageous lives of Hollywood college films. I went to see this because Roger Ebert said it was like being there in person, and aside from the bland acting from the lead, I couldn't agree more. The movie starts out with Scotty trying to figure out if he wants to go to church or not (he was asleep). He finally decides to go and he finds himself falling asleep in the sermon. He continues on in his lazy uncaring life until he meets a crazy girl in a bar, who wakes him up a bit, and a cop on the street, who gives him a favor by way of an ultimatum (be good or go to jail). Scotty tries to be good by doing good deeds in the community but they all make him laugh and he doesn't take anything seriously enough to learn anything from it. Finally, when something big happens to one of the funniest characters, it makes him rethink his life and he starts to get serious about what is most important. You'll have to see the film to find out what is most important, although you probably already know because it's exactly like your life (if you're normal).
