Acceptance-Basically Television Rejectance *1/2
23 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A step above a bad film is 2009's "Acceptance."

We know what students and parents go through in the latter's senior year in high school as they wait for those fateful letters of acceptance or rejection. This film is a comedy about that situation but then turns somewhat serious.

We have a group of high school California students who really compete to get into the Ivy League schools.

When one such student knows that she can't make the grade, she applies to a fictitious Yates College that has been accidentally rated as one of the 50 top colleges in the U.S. Other students of her group also apply to Yates. Another is so intent on getting into Harvard that he doesn't bother to apply to any other college. Is this really a bright student?

While it is certainly true that going to the greatest school doesn't automatically mean that you shall succeed in life, the film trivializes this and instead becomes one of neurotic and of much inane anxiety.

Joan Cusack's performance as a competitive-driven parent is ridiculous at best. She certainly has more problems going for her. Why she made this film is her biggest problem!
