  • Editorial Reviews

    From the producer of Bruce Almighty and Liar Liar comes a whole new school of thought: Accepted. When every college turns him down, Bartleby "B" Gaines decides to make one up. Welcome to the South Harmon Institute of Technology, where the students teach the classes, the dean lives in a trailer in the back, and Bartleby's on the way to scoring with the girl of his dreams. It's a raunchy, rowdy, flat-out funny college comedy that critics are calling "freakin' hilarious" (Steven Chupnick, MovieWeb.com)!

    Customer Reviews

    This movie is fun and very funny.
    Italo La Posta
    In the movie, we watch a college on paper evolve into a real school where the students not only have fun, but learn what they need for the future.
    Betty Burks
    Don't hold me to that "this movie actually has something to say" thing, though.
    Daniel Jolley

    My friend Suzanne took me to see Accepted three weeks ago, probably to celebrate my new hire as an adjunct lecturer in the English Department of Queensborough Community College. In the movie, high school graduate Bartelby Gaines--a name with literary overtones, at least the first name--can't get accepted to the staid Harmon College in his hometown in Ohio, or to any other school. To get his parents off his back, the inventive Bartelby (Justin Long), using his computer, invents an acceptance letter from the South Harmon Institute of Technology (get it?). Bartelby, to complete the ruse, gets his computer-savvy friend, Harmon freshman Sherman Schrader (Jonah Hill) to create a website for the bogus school. But the website works too well, and Bartelby is faced with hundreds of college rejects looking for acceptance. So in the confines of an abandoned mental hospital, Bartelby and friends create a college--really an adult education center or community center--where students design their own courses, design clothes in the school colors brown and blue (get it?), create the school newspaper the SH**rag, build a state-of-the-art skateboarding rink, and listen to radical lectures from a washed-up ex-professor (Lewis Black). However, Harmon College's traditionalist Dean Van Horne (Boston Public's Anthony Heald) and the fraternity brothers have reasons to close the new school down.

    Sure, the plot is improbable--as one TV reviewer said, "Haven't they ever heard of community college?" But if you look past the silly plot and over-the-top episodes, there's a real message hear about academic freedom, creativity, and appeal to students. In my years at CUNY and even at Pace University, I was never subject to the extreme whitebread culture of Harmon College, and I'm not sure I want to be.

    Format: DVD
    Reminiscent of PCU and Old School, Accepted is part of the new generation of college movies. When he isn't accepted to any of the eight schools to which he's applied, Bartleby Gaines decides to create his own school--the South Harmon Institute of Technology (S.H.I.T.) In order to make it look legit, he has a friend create a website that details the school's mission statement, etc. What he doesn't expect is that other students will see the website and wind up applying. Before he knows what's up, his school has more than three hundred students with paid tuition and he has to design a curriculum.

    This movie is funny and full of entertaining moments. As Bartleby is quick to point out, plenty of well-known people didn't go to college (Pocahontas, Corey Feldman, and Corey Haim to name a few). It's nice to see a movie that doesn't glorify the fun you'll have in those years and instead shows an honest depiction of the stress, lack of sleep, and workaholism that come with your first year of college. If you like movies like Old School and PCU, then you'll surely like this one.

    Format: DVD
    Accepted is probably the best executed teenage coming-of-age film since Ferris Bueller's Day Off. This film could've easily been titled "Bartleby Gaine's Big Plan" and no one would've complained ... well, maybe no one. "Accepted" is just fine.

    Heavily laden with enough social commentary that through the humor, you won't be able to ignore it or tune it out, and you might be made to feel uncomfortable if you're the person that sold out, or drifted through the hell that Bartleby Gaines is trying to save you from. It's not Lenny Bruce or Noam Chomsky, but you can definitely sense it bubbling below the surface.

    So, what happened to all the young teens from days-gone-by who grew up in the newly constructed suburbs and identified with movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Pump up the Volume and Better Off Dead? I can tell you. They all ended up selling out and moving into newly constructed tract homes, deep in the nether regions of the ever increasing perimeter of modern suburbia or rather, Urban Blight.

    Format: DVD
    Let's say you've been something of an underachiever in high school, living a Ferris Bueller-like life and not exactly hitting the books very hard. You're a pretty cool guy, but now it's time to face reality. The closest you've gotten to the class hottie is her front lawn (which she flirted you into mowing for her) and - horror of horrors - every single college you applied to has turned you down flat (which is going to come as quite a blow to your parents). What do you do? Well, naturally, there's only one thing to do - have your nerdy best friend (Jonah Hill) create a fancy web site for a nonexistent college, fake an acceptance letter from said college, and use dad's tuition money to lease an abandoned mental hospital that you can clean up and pass off as an actual educational institution. It helps if you have a few friends joining you in this whole crazy scheme - friends like Hands (Columbus Short), who lost his athletic scholarship because of an injury, Glen (Adam Herschman), who probably can't even spell college, and Rory (Maria Thayer), a totally cute redhead who only applied to one school (Yale) and had her cherished dreams dashed at the manicured hands of smarmy Ivy League administrators who probably all talk like Thurston Howell, III. Certainly, it takes some work to turn a filthy, abandoned loony bin into a "college" impressive enough to fool your parents when they drop you off, but it's going to be all fun and games after they leave, right? It might be - if about 300 other folks didn't show up with acceptance letters and tuition money in hand (seems that good old Sherman made the college web site a little too functional).Read more ›
