Product Description

When three high school seniors (Drake Bell, Andrew Caldwell and Kevin Covais) visit Fieldmont University as prospective freshmen, they're expecting the best weekend of their lives. But the trio's raunchy F.U. adventure takes a harsh turn when they're subjected to endless humiliation by the rowdiest frat house on campus. With no choice but to fight back, the boys retaliate with an outrageous scheme to avenge their tormentors, destroy the fraternity - and win the hearts of three sexy sorority girls in the process!

College tells the same threadbare story as a dozen other movies about wide-eyed newcomers arriving at a college campus and finding an institution of higher learning to be a focal point of debauchery. Drake Bell (of TV's Drake & Josh) stars as Kevin, a cautious high school senior who gets dumped by his girlfriend for being boring. Determined to be a free spirit, Kevin pays a pre-enrollment weekend visit to a university with his best friends, the uptight Morris (Kevin Covais) and licentious Carter (Andrew Caldwell). The trio are soon absorbed into the black hole of an obnoxious fraternity and subjected to ritual hazing of a nauseating order. Things go from bad to worse when Kevin becomes attracted to a sorority girl (Haley Bennett) targeted by a frat leader for seduction. A kind of war breaks out between the newbies and their frat tormentors, forcing Kevin, Morris, and Carter to face up to their internal conflicts and fight back against a common enemy. College might have the semblance of a narrative, but it's really the same old grab-bag of youthful depravity, with the bar raised pretty high in a couple of sordid scenes. There's a strong influence here of Superbad (Bell, Covais, and Caldwell's characters are essentially the latter film's Evan, Seth, and McLovin in personality and style). But unlike Superbad's persuasive humanity, College is merely trying to temper outrageousness with faux sensitivity. It doesn't work, and the film feels like it goes on forever. --Tom Keogh

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new February 4, 2009
College paints the same tried and true portrait of drunken debauchery that high school kids love to watch, and while it manages to provide a little bit of laughs, it doesn't end up nearly being as funny as it could be. Basically Superbad-lite, College tells the tale of a trio of high school kids (Drake Bell, Andrew Caldwell, Kevin Covais) looking for some fun at a college campus on the weekend. Running afoul of some frat boys (Nick Zano, Gary Owen, and Whitest Kids U Know member Zach Cregger), the trio partake in the usual mix of hijinks that you'd expect from this sort of thing, with a few laughs to be found to be sure, but not nearly enough to hold your interest during the film's whole running time. It doesn't help when our trio of heroes prove to be more annoying than the frat boys they're taking on either. You'll definitely see worse comedies of this type than College, but you know you're in for a rough time when you get more laughs watching the DVD's blooper reel than watching the actual flick.

Honestly, I'm surprised the current direct-to-video headliner "National Lampoon's..." wasn't above the title. Take three typical high school seniors, the fat wisecrack kid (think Jack Black & Chris Farley had a son), the nerdy kid (played by Kevin Covais, American Idol 5th Season finalist who no one really took seriously), and the "normal" kid (Nickelodeon escapee Drake Bell), and place them in the same old story of spending their first weekend ever in the future college they wish to attend and all the equally stereotypical hot drunk girls and mean as Hell frat guys they encounter. If you've seen Animal House, Revenge Of The Nerds, or any film that had some member counting on getting that scholarship and drunkenly blowing it badly, you've already seen this film. However due to the changing times, the extremely high levels of nudity and sexual situations, surprisingly high in let's say "alternative lifestyles", will remind you why films like this today need that little over-the-top extra to even get mentioned in the same paragraph as those real college classics. But when it boils down to it, it does have a couple of laughs, groans, and guffaws, but nothing to make you really want to see it a second time. It's disc has both the Unrated (that really, really pushes it) and a Rated (will anybody choose/see this version?) plus a gag reel, half of which is already in the end credits ala a Burt Reynolds film. For a rent it's not too bad, but the filmmakers here should go back a grade to see why college films succeeded so much in the first place without trying so hard to blow us away with gross-out jokes than actually well-written ones.

3.0 out of 5 stars College as One Dreams February 21, 2011
Old-for-teens actors play high-school-senior characters going college to have sex, fun and drinking.

Not much action but a sexist stuff, pigs inclusively.

Just have a time passed to watch it for.

2.0 out of 5 stars Everything a 17 year old guy would want to watch January 28, 2009
Any guy over the age of 21 has seen this film 500 times, well I hope you haven't used your time that unwisely. The point, this story has been told over and over again, especially by National Lampoon.

This is at best a 2 star movie if you put a teenagers hat on (as an adult it's probably -10 stars). It's got the whole thing, drinking, fights, parties, jiggle, urination, and seriously fake college campus equiped with awesomely bad fraternities and sororites.

The back story, three high school seniors visit a campus and pretend to be college students. They fake pledge to a fraternity, and they get three girls. In the end they get found out and the three girls fall in love with these kids. In the meantime, the fun happens.

It is just stupid enough for guy humor. There is absolutely no relationship between this and what really happens in college.

On a positive note, the shots are all in focus, the sound is reasonably well recorded, and the lighting is good (that can't be said for many many films, including huge budge films). In it's genre, it's mid to bottom of the pack.

The comparison to American Pie is really wrong. It's probably just barely as good at the 4th Amerian Pie movie (they got progressively worse).

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrific, absolutely horrific February 6, 2009
College has to be the worst movie ever created. To take a movie that plays off the stereotypes that have been used time and time again is one thing, but to do so and make the movies a millions times worse, that's just sickening.

This movie has virtually no plot, except showing college to be one huge party with nudity, alcohol, cursing, and debauchery and about nothing else. The acting, I mean look at the names, is terrible. The driving force behind this film is ultimately shock factor; that is, where can we place the vomiting scenes and excessive male nudity to receive the most number of cringes. I don't think I laughed during this movie, but I did cringe a lot.

The underlying romance is completely ludacris and bears no resemblance to real life. Three high school guys go down to a campus and score three college girls, like that happens every weekend.

Some movies are bad but acceptable because you're just looking for cheap laughs. This isn't one of them. This movie is so bad, in fact, that you will be hard pressed to find yourself laughing once. Unless you're one of those people that still finds the inaccurate stereotypes of frat boys, sorority girls, nerds, punks, and fat kids funny, in which case, you'd be too young to buy this movie anyway.
