Diabolique at the university
The screenplay borrows sometimes from that of Clouzot's "les Diaboliques" :the dead body which should be in the sea,but which is nowhere to be found.This is one of these teenage stuff flicks where we NEVER see a so called student work,study or even open one book! And they want to get into Harvard ,no less! The film is not dull ,however,thanks to Matthew Lillard's funny face and to his excellent over-the -top playing (already excellent in "scream" ).His young co -stars are not as gifted as he is.Outside Lillard,the best characters are the chancellor and the shrink ,a pair of idiots who get fooled every time they show up.The way Tim manipulates all the people around is delightful.
