Customer Reviews

This is a very funny movie.
Dustin Ragle
And it does it without too many low-brow jokes that, even though I love, you can see in any teen movie these days.

If you enjoy college movies, you'll love this offbeat one.

I was expecting this movie to be pretty stupid, but I was quite surprised. This story actually made me laugh out loud in places, and I had a constant smile on my face.
Two students are in a predicament. They face expulsion from college unless they can take advantage of a loophole that will grant them perfect grades: the traumatic death of a roommate.
So the two students come up with a plan. They go through a list of possible candidates (the most unstable students on campus), ask them to move in, and then attempt to drive them into committing suicide. Things don't go as smoothly as they expect.
You will probably recognise the two main characters from other "wacky" comedies from the past. To me, "Dead Man on Campus" is like a combination of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Weekend At Bernie's". The two students, caught in a dilemma of their own making, attempt to use the easy way out: (someone elses) suicide.
Although the premise is bizaare and macabre, I found "Dead Man On Campus" one of the least offensive of the "college comedies".

First of all...I really liked this movie. I am sure some of you are saying..."what you got to be kidding", well, no I am not. This story is based upon an age old falsehood that states "if your college roommate kills them self in college, the surviving roommate gets a 4.0". Here you have Gosselaar (the old ZAK on `Saved by the Bell') partying like crazy in college and living with Scott, who is easily distracted by Gosselaar. Well the distractions take their toll and both Gosselaar and Scott are headed for collegiate non-return status, when they hear the 4.0 story. Now if you have been on a college campus as long as I have, you will come across a great deal of students who claim this is true and that it has happened to a friend of theirs at some college...well, you are mistaken..it never happened and never will. But that doesn't mean you can't make a movie out of it. If you like offensive jokes, off-the-wall humor and can handle laughing out loud (in public) at scenes that you should not be....then this movie is for you. Bottom line...if your roommate is depressed, then go ahead and take them to see this film, they will laugh so hard that they will forgot their worries (at least for a few moments.)

I don't remember when I first heard about this movie, but I remembered it sounded funny and telling myself to see it one day. Well, come Yom Kippur, I ventured over to the video store to find me some movies to see, and hello! I saw this, and, debating awhile, decided to check it out. Remember when I said I thought it would be funny? Strike that. This movie is super funny! And it does it without too many low-brow jokes that, even though I love, you can see in any teen movie these days. Even when the movie does stoop low, it somehow does it with class. The actors are great, and pull off the strange charictors perfectly: Matt, the "deppressed" musician, Buckley, who thinks Bill Gates is after his brians, Cliff who's a bit crazy, and the main caraictors Cooper and Josh, who everyone suspects are gay. I noticed some people below didn't like this movie. But hey, some people can't tell good movies when they see them.

I caught "Dead Man on Campus" one night on The Movie Channel, I didn't think it was gonna be that good, but damn I was in for a surprise. This movie is hilarious. Two college students,Cooper and Josh, are on a mission to find "Mr.Z". "Mr.Z" is the most homicidal, suicidal and genocidal guy on campus. You see, if your roomate kills himself you automatically get a 4.0 GPA. First, they get a guy named Cliff O'Malley,then mayhem and laughter insues, to provide some of the funniest parts in the movie. Cliff doesn't work out so next they get Buckley. Buckley is, well....a little paranoid. See, Buckley has a conspiracy theroy that Bill Gates is after his brain. This character is also hilarious, but he doesn't work out either. Finally they go for Matt, a punk rocker (his band:"Kiss My Ass")who is always depressed.Well, enough said...all in all this movie is hilarious and I'm really glad I saw it. I highly, highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. Below I see 3 or 4 negative reviews....I don't know how anyone could hate this movie at all. It must have been a "bad day" or "that time of the month" I guess. GO SEE THIS MOVIE !~

I can't even begin to express how much I love Dead Man on Campus. Ok, well maybe I can. This movie is hilarious and it's nice to see the actor who portrayed Zack on Saved by the Bell (I forget his name, forgive me) doing something that doesn't suck. The introductory credits are even a lot of fun in this, but that's not why I love this movie. I love it for it's pure simplicity, for all the scheming to pass their classes...it takes me back to my college days, which weren't all that long ago. Plot synopsis has been fairly well covered, so I'm not going to rehash it, but this movie gets great when our 2 main characters discover a loophole that would allow them to get all A's, but someone needs to kill themselves. I just love how they stalk other students they believe to be at risk for suicide and all their roommates and potential roommates who could possibly live up to (or die up to in this case) their expectations. It's dark, twisted and hilarious. If you enjoy college movies, you'll love this offbeat one. It's one of my absolute favorites in my collection. And if you liked Dead Man on Campus, chances are you'll also enjoy The Perfect Score which has a similar feel but with high school kids trying to pass the SAT. Good stuff! Don't miss it!
