Two college roommates go out and party, resulting in bad grades. They learn of the clause that says, "If your roommate dies, you get an A," and decide to find someone who is on the verge, so to speak, to move in with them.
Josh, (Scott) a college student on a scholarship, gets taught the about crazy nightlife of being in college by his unreliable roommate Cooper (Gosselaar) and fails his midterms due to being unprepared. With Cooper's father no longer willing to pay his son's way through college, and Josh needing to keep up his grades or risk losing his scholarship, the two learn of a hidden clause in the school's rules that basically says "if your roommate commits suicide, you get straight A's." Since neither are willing to do so, they instead decide to invite a suicidal colleague in. - and push him over the edge.Written by
The priest at the end of the movie is played by Patrick Thomas O'Brien, who played Mr. Dewey, one of Zack Morris's (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) regular teachers, on Saved By The Bell. See more »
Buckley mentions losing half his brain to "falling asleep at Newark Airport", but if he'd really lost half his brain, he'd at least be in a stroke-like state, unable to control half his body. However, Buckley is paranoid, so this is excusable. See more »
I'm not gonna commit suicide, if that's what you're thinking.
Aw come on Josh, you're fucked anyway. At least this way, one of us comes out on top.
Then you kill YOURself.
Naw, I just couldn't see that working.

Much to my surprise, this film actually wasn't bad. In fact, it had some pretty funny moments, which was a mild shock. Things start off particularly well, thanks to some fun opening credits, and the first half was especially enjoyable. Things definitely got a little too silly once the roommates started spending time with the weirdest people on campus, but it was still a fun movie that generally kept me entertained. Both leads played their characters well, the movie has a good pace, and a decent number of the jokes work, so this definitely was a pleasant surprise.
