User Reviews

There is a reason this went Straight to Netflix -- it STINKS!
17 March 2016 | by Man99204See all my reviews

Remember when someone your Dad's age tried to do things to be "cool".It did not work then and it does not work now.

Nothing is sadder than a group of men in their early THIRTIES who are pretending to be College Students... and immature frat boy type college students at that.

Alan Ritchson is at least twelve years too old to be playing this role! He has pretty much aged out of the roles he had played so far in his career. If he is to have a future in the film business, he needs to start playing roles which are remotely similar to his chronological age.

This movie appears to have been made by a bunch of old geezers who are throwing in every counterculture thing they can think of -- all in an effort to make this film appealing to "the young folk". Most college students are not stupid enough to believe that this is "entertainment".

Especially offensive is the way in which Women are treated in this film. There is one particularly annoying character who is such an incredibly "Dumb Blonde", she will offend other blondes of sub average intelligence. Come on guys, this is not funny, it is just stupid and not in a good way.

While there are some viewers who will find this film enjoyable . For those of us who do NOT live in our Mother's basement, it is a total waste of time.
