Storyline

Emilio, a shy, not too brilliant pupil at a humble local secondary school, has always harbored a secret love for Natalia, the cutest, brightest girl in the class. On the last day of the school year, when he finally decides to declare his love, Natalia is awarded a scholarship to study Medicine at Oxford. It would seem that all is lost for Emilio, but his drop-out school-pals are not ready to throw in the towel. After faking qualifications and scholarships, this band of brainless nuts land in Oxford, causing havoc in the normally peaceful campus existence. Written by The Film Catalogue

Apt title indeed
28 February 2014 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

Ugh... this might not even be worth a review but since I saw this at the recent Italian Film Fest in Hollywood, here goes: This Italian production, mostly shot in England and Spain, is really not worth your time. A dumb collegiate plot in the vein of the "coming of age" US school romantic comedies form the 70's and 80's, this relies way too heavily on all the usual stereotypes which fall flat pretty quickly, including a poor and predictable ending. Who would watch this? No sense in going into details even - you know a movie is bad when the end title device of outtakes reveals funnier stuff than the entire film...a rating of '3' for that.
