Right after Hares are shown beating Skidmoore in Collegiate Mastermind, a guy is seen holding the newspaper "WHITTMAN DAILY" in a classroom. When the camera captures a close-up view of the news on the corner of one of the pages, you can clearly see that the sentence "... It is there first win in over 30 years." See more »

Humorous --- mostly
18 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This - "I want to be a funny movie" - almost gets there, but falls short.

It's got good script, plot, photography, settings, characters, but it stumbles along and I think the trouble is with the editing. The entire movie is choppy bits of story and few scenes flow well into the next. I'm at a loss to clearly express my feelings; just as this movie is at a loss to be really good.

Wolff and Fraser make a good team but the experience of Fraser's background in acting make Wolff appear a bit amateurish (but that is understandable by his age) it just was another problem for me to like the end product.

It's fun enough to rent.
