Goofs

When Nick shows up dressed per the invitation, he is let in through the "dog room". As they walk in, that inside door is left open. He's inside about 2-3 minutes until he realizes what's up and then starts to sneak out, but now the dog room is full with the inner door closed. Who did this, and when? Those dogs weren't around anywhere before then. See more »

Oxford Blues
27 May 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Lowe struts his stuff as an egotistical American who finagles his way into the prestigious British university. School is tossed aside for women, crew and fun. Hardly believable and entertaining. Lowe is way too upstaged by young Brits Pays, Sands and Payne.
