John (Jason Lee) leads a simple and happy life. He has a beautiful fiancée and an assistant managerposition at his future father-in-law's company. Everything seems perfect, until John's favorite niece surprises him with her acceptance to Harvard University and he's reminded of a long forgotten oath he made to foot the bill! Desperate, John turns to his hare-brained and half-witted best friend Duff (Tom Green) for advice. Thinking far outside of the box, Duff convinces John that they must temporarily lead a life of crime to raise the needed cash! From the director of Superstar, and co-starring Megan Mullally (Emmy Award(r) winning Best Supporting Actress for TV's "Will & Grace") and Dennis Farina (Snatch, Big Trouble), Stealing Harvard is an outrageous comedy of errors proving that getting into college is the easy part!
In Stealing Harvard, the charming Jason Lee (Chasing Amy, Almost Famous) wastes his talent playing John, a nice guy who once rashly promised his niece that he would pay for her college education. Now she's been accepted into Harvard, and though John has just the right amount of money in the bank, that money is meant to buy a house for himself and his fiancée Elaine (Leslie Mann, Big Daddy). Afraid of disappointing his niece, John enlists his friend Duff (Tom Green, Freddy Got Fingered, Road Trip) on a spree of inane criminal escapades that go wrong. Lee is an engaging actor, but he can't make the half-baked gags of Stealing Harvard funny. Similarly wasted are Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Dennis Farina (Out of Sight, Snatch), Chris Penn (Reservoir Dogs, Short Cuts), and others. --Bret Fetzer
