Dave, Sam and Jeff are about to graduate from Holden University with Honors in lying, cheating and scheming. The three roommates have proudly scammed their way through the last four years of college and now, during the final exams, these big-men-on-campus are about to be busted by the most unlikely dude in school.Written by
The original name for the movie was "The Undergrads", but it was changed to avoid any confusion with there being a movie of the popular MTV animated series Undergrads (2001) See more »
In the last shot of the film, as credits begin to roll and Ethan has finished singing his song, you can see several feet of the dolly track on the floor of the diner. One of the extras sitting in a booth even comes close to tripping over it. In the wide screen version of this film the dolly track is not visible. See more »
He's in my seat.
Head T.A. Philip:
Yeah... and we're grown-ups. We don't argue over seats. Now go sit over there. There are plenty of empty seats there.

An under-rated subversive take on the normal teen fare
I'm actually a huge fan of all teen films, but I think this one was vastly under-rated. Some comments give the impression that it is another gross-out teen romp with nothing new to offer. In actual fact although it may be ranked alongside films such as American Pie Road Trip etc, and though it shares common themes, it is actually a far superior film. As a result, people expect a film similar to the aforementioned, and are faced instead with one which has slightly more to offer. I found this very entertaining and surprising; quite subversive and original in actual fact, more likely to appeal to a greater intellect than that of a 13 year-old the jokes are more ironic and subtle in general, with a few obvious "gross-out" moments sprinkled in between. Though these as well are done with tongue firmly in cheek.
I would highly recommend this film, and prepare to be presently surprised by a film that most people fobbed off as another teen movie, but which is actually a lot more than that.
