After Morris consumes the fruit punch with alcohol in it, a couple minutes later we see him walking down the street with a cigarette in his mouth. The dean of the school is driving along, and Morris pukes on the wind shield, releasing the cigarette from his mouth. The very next clip we see him with the cigarette in his mouth again, then the next clip it's gone. See more »

so bad it's good
5 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, this movie is a real stinker.

If you are looking for a quality movie experience, look elsewhere. Yes, it is not original, it is predictable, the jokes aren't good, and the characters are one dimensional. But it's so bad, it's good. The clichés and raunchy-ness just add to the fun. A bit of a let down at the end when it tries to get serious, and not a classic in the "so bad it's good" genre. Don't be expecting Barbarella or Bolero, but there is some good raw material here. A stupider (not just vapid) ending would have gone a long way.

A few beers will enhance the experience.
