  • 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)!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Silliness Highlights Important Theme (get it?) September 11, 2006
    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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Reminiscent of Old School and PCU November 25, 2006
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Have you got Hobo Stab Insurance? ... February 4, 2008
    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. They all sold out to lame jobs, lame spouses, bought lame rent-to-own furniture and either made a lot, or lost a lot during the dot-com bubble, and then lost whatever else they had left during the real-estate bubble. Is that close to accurate?

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun November 24, 2006
    Format:DVD
    The South Harmon Institute of Technology (S.H.I.T.) will become a campus you will wish to visit and revisit again and again and the following are the reasons why.

    Occasionally when you go to review something you are taken completely by surprise. Accepted is one such movie. Both the movie and the features on the DVD will be completely unexpected. I was expecting a frat party film along the line of Animal House or The Revenge of the Nerds series, and ended up with something closer to With Honors. The movie actually deals with some great questions - questions about personal integrity, traditions, growth and values.

    This DVD is packed full of special features with something for everyone, such as commentaries, deleted scenes, gag reel, music videos and more. The best part of the fun is the self-guided tour of the campus. The virtual tour of S.H.I.T. takes you through the main sets, with mini commentaries on parts of the film that took place on these sets.

    Justin Long and Lewis Black lead an all-star comedic cast in a romp through University life, as if the students ran the show. The gag reel will have you on the floor laughing as the cast takes the jokes on and off screen to extremes.

    The feature commentary with director Steve Pink, and stars Justin Long, Lewis Black, Jonah Hill and Adam Herschman is a barrel of laughs; they seemed to have as much fun commenting about the film as they did on screen during the actual movie. They spent time mocking commentaries on DVDs, critiquing scenes and joking with each other. Early on they say if you make it through the commentary you will need psychiatric help, and though that may be true for their characters and the actors themselves, the commentary is hilarious.
