A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
After being rejected from every college he applied, Bartleby Gaines decided to create a fictitious university, South Harmon Institute of Technology, with his friends, to fool their parents. But when their deception works too well and every other college rejects starts to apply to his school, B. must find a way to give the education and future his students and friends deserves, including his own, while trying to win the heart of the girl next door.Written by
Even though she plays a recent high school graduate, Maria Thayer was 30 when this movie was filmed. See more »
When Monica first visits South Harmon, she comments how difficult it was to find the building, with Batleby responding "We're a pretty well kept secret." Yet, at least 300 college rejects seem to of found the location after being "accepted" fairly easily earlier in the film. And Ambrose finds it just as easily when looking for the building's leaseholder. See more »

When I got accepted here, it was the first time my parents ever said they were proud of me!

A great movie. The movie was even better then the commercials put on. And believe it or not it was very very inspirational. I really think anyone who walks out of the movie at the end will be inspired one way or another.
It was kinda corny at the very beginning, but quickly picks up. I laughed. I laughed very hard on some parts. The acting is basically above average, nothing special, but better then average. I can safely say it was the second funniest movie to come out this summer (1st funniest being CLERKS II). So after all of that I give it a 7/10 (a high seven, but not quite an eight).
