Trivia

This film was widely panned by critics, many criticizing the movie as unfunny, disgusting, unoriginal and derivative. It also holds a 5% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. See more »

Goofs

When the frat boys are sniping people with paintball guns, their paintball guns do not have hoppers, which hold the paintballs. While paintball guns can still hold up to 3 shots in the load chamber without a hoppper, they are unable to fire multiple shots in semi-auto as portrayed in the movie without reloading or using a hopper.

A Review of the Fake Reviews and My Real One...
25 September 2008 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

It's already been mentioned, but I'd just like to reiterate that every one of those initial reviews is fake. They are from someone that just signed up an IMDb account and just happened to see a "prescreening" of College and went way in depth about the plot, used the word "raunchy" quite a bit, used a lot of the actors names, used parenthesis often, and gave 9 and 10 star reviews along with saying it's better than Superbad and other hit "buddy comedies" and school movies. Most of those reviews came from the same person, it's clear from the writing style.

DEFINITELY street teamers, studio promoters, or who knows..maybe even the writers themselves - this was, after all, their first screenplay. That sort of promotion is just cheesy...definitely NOT the way to get a good rep.

Anyway, I saw the movie earlier tonight, at home...a DVD rip surfaced like a week after it hit theaters which is a pretty clear sign of how well it did. They probably had that planted too so that people might actually see the movie.

It's not TERRIBLE, it doesn't deserve the 1 star reviews it's getting...but its also nothing original by any means and it's DEFINITELY not as good as those first reviews claim it is (another sign that they are fake). Just a bunch of stolen ideas from successful movies all put together to make one mediocre film. Even the intro with the names showing up in different scenes rather than text credits - we've seen that before...Napoleon Dynamite? Sure, it's a cool way to do credits, but that alone set the tone of unoriginality that kept up through the whole movie.

I knew from the trailer where they compared it to American Pie, Road Trip, Animal House, Fast Times at Ridgemont High etc - that it was doomed. They were calling it "that" movie of "this" generation. Those movies became the classic hits that they are because they were solid movies of those particular generations that earned their respect and recognition after the movies came out for being good movies. You don't just make a movie and compare it to movies like those, that's ballsy. You don't see Sci-fi movies come out giving off the message that the movie is better than and comparable to "Star Wars" before anyones even seen it....

They also did no press screenings for critic reviews before this came out - why? Because there was NO WAY it would get any positive press, that was a smart move, but it doesn't justify creating such a fake, undeserved buzz with these glorified fake reviews all over the internet. Give the real audience a chance to share their thoughts first.

If you haven't seen this movie - don't go out of your way to, but if it crosses your path, give it a watch with low expectations and you'll get a few laughs out of it. It's not better than any of the movies that it's claiming to top....but it's not the worst movie I've ever seen, either.
