I saw this at the video store, i usually love juvenile comedies like that so i gave it a shot. First thing that stroked me was how the beginning looks very close to Van Wilder. Finn wanting to remain in college even if his time should be done, trying to "educate" new roommates that are more the intellectual type. Of course you got a bully that want to do all he can to make sure Finn get trouble. Finn also has to pass exam if he want to remain there(yep pretty much like Van Wilder).
In any case, i am more than surprise at the reviews, i tough this movie was not that funny. It had its moment, but i would say i was not impress with most of the characters. Finn himself is OK, the blond chicks who work at the bar is alright too, but the nerdy guy is just so awkward i couldn't believe in him, he look fake as hell, and i didn't saw the chemistry between the 2 guys. The bullies are not introduced until later in the movie and really where not much interesting. All the other characters where forgivable.
Honestly i wouldn't go and say this is a terrible movie, cause it had some moments, but it was clearly not a real good movie either. Nothing really stand out of it and its just another below average teen comedy that will be easily forgot with time.
Edit : Kinda funny reading my review again because i had really totally forgot about this movie. I watched it out of Amazon Prime yesterday and came here to review only to realize i had already seen and reviewed it, yet when i watched it i had NO IDEA i had already seen it. Funny enough tough, i actually enjoyed it much more this time. No idea if its because i was in a different mood but i upped my score from 5 to 7 and wanted to change my review as well to reflect this.
