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
For the first half of the movie, Monica (Blake Lively) wears a lot of soft pastel colors. After Monica breaks up with Hoyt, she starts wearing more brown, one of the school colors of South Harmon. 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 »
I don't think I've yet seen a movie in my whole lifetime about a high school kid creating his own college, just to impress his parents. Nowadays, movies are either remakes or sequels, or plots that have been used in many different films. This one has an original story line and to follow it up by making it a comedy films only lightens the deal. With this well thought out story and with laughs mixed in, this is a good movie. Now I've seen better, but upon going into the theater I was thinking another drug/beer/frat party with some sexual innuendo tossed in (aka an "American Pie" flick) but I was surprised. To sum it up, I enjoyed the film and the next time your shuffling through the paper for movies, look for show times to "Accepted". If you want to laugh out loud, that is.
