Having graduated in the US as Van Wilder disciple, now self-confident Taj Mahal. arrives as 'don' (teaching assistant) history at England's super-prestigious Cambridge. He falls victim to the haughty, aristocratic leading fraternity's president Pip's usual prank for 'commoners', landing in the derelict 'barn' with other 'social outcasts'. But Taj decides to band the rejects into a new fraternity, Cocks & Bulls, which under his leadership challenges Pip's in the annual all-round excellence championship. Written by KGF Vissers

Not as bad as it's being reviewed
27 July 2018 | by blakthndrSee all my reviews

It's no Ryan Reynolds of course, but it's just a teen fun movie. People are reviewing this like it's supposed to be something other than that. I didn't laugh out loud, but for me watching a comedy isn't always about rolling in the floor laughing. It's just feel good.
