Editorial Reviews

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

Product Description

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!

Customer Reviews

Jason Lee and Tom Green make the perfect team.
NickNolan
This results in rather stale movie making, where instead of making a really good comedy they make one more hour and a half diversion to waste your time on.
Mike London
OK, I know Tom Green has a crazy sense of humor, but this film was just stupid!

This is a very funny movie. If your a fan of Tom Green you'll like this movie. It's full of laughs from beginning to end. The name of Tom Green's hedge cutting company is cool. Its called "Landscape Escape". I recommend this movie if your a fan of comedy. You won't stop laughing.

Stealing Harvard happens to succeed on every single level of entertainment. At least, according to my tastes (which may or may not stink, hehe).

It's about a man who makes a promise to his distraught niece after she fails a spelling bee that, if she were to ever make it into college, he'd pay for it. Well skip ahead several years later and, to his absolute surprise she DOES end up going to college, and to Harvard of all places!

It turns out she needs 30,000 bucks. From here the storyline kicks in, and to me, it's a really funny movie that never fails with the laughs. Of course you could argue that once the guys nerdy friend enters the picture to help with the money situation, the humor goes down significantly (because he is fairly annoying, to be honest). He's kind of obnoxious most of the time.

However the incredible twist of horrible luck (and humorous segments) the poor guy has to endure just to come up with 30 grand is quite the spectacle to watch. Despite being a comedy you can't help but feel sorry for the guy. Without spoiling anything, he has to put up with utter crappiness at every single turn it seems.

I mean, just think about this- his girlfriends father hates his guts, the police department gradually catch on to his sneaky ways, and his girlfriend is always questioning his every move. Somehow, for the sake of his nieces future, he has to find ways to avoid *everybody* and focus on obtaining the money.

Overall, it's a really good movie. The humor and storytelling are both really well-written which is a rare find these days. Oh, and a certain dog scene at the end is absolutely priceless (and inappropriate to share!)

Would have been WAY better film if they had given Tom Green's character more time but still manages to provide a good laugh on the spray painted holdup scene.

I went to see this movie with my friends, and we all walked out laughing. I saw this movie before I ever saw Road Trip, and that was also funny, but this is much better. I love all the charactors (But Jason Lee, Tom Green are the best together). The two main charactors are great friends, but when you put them together, all of their plans go wrong. John (Lee) promised his niece that he would pay for her college when she was little, and forgot all about it. She was accepted to Harvard and now he must find $30,000 somewhere. (direct quote) "I had only one option. I had to go to a man who's ideas were sometimes so dumb they were brilliant: I had to go to Duff". The plot is not even really important to the comedy, it just makes the entire thing make sense in the end. I don't want to tell you what happens, so I'll just say one thing more: this is the only movie I own that is even funnier every time I watch it.

Summary:
John Plummer (Jason Lee (I)) lives a kind of doldrum life as an assistant manager of a home medical supply store. He's dating the owner's (Dennis Farina) daughter, Elaine Warner (Leslie Mann), and they are planning on getting married. They had decided to wait to get married until they had saved up enough to put a down payment on a house. The movie begins with them realizing that they have finally saved up enough money. There's just one problem, John promised his niece, Noreen Plummer (Tammy Blanchard), that if she got in to college he would pay for it. Well, she got into Harvard and now she needs the money - the exact amount that he had saved up. John is stuck with a decision but can't take away his wife's dreams, so he turns to an old friend to help him come up with the money, Walter 'Duff' Duffy (Tom Green (III)). Duff comes up with several illegal plans for getting the money, each getting them further into trouble with the law. Eventually all of the plans catch up to them and they have to deal with the chaos they have been causing and they still don't have the money.
My Comments:
The movie was occasionally funny, but only occasionally. The plot was pretty good and the story wasn't terrible, but it wasn't really memorable. The major problem with the movie was that it was supposed to be funny, but it wasn't. Jason Lee tries, and some of the situations are a bit humorous - specifically the repeated instances of the main characters having to dress up as women for the Honorable Emmett Cook (Richard Jenkins (I)) - but the best it does is get an occasional chuckle.
This movie seemed to receive a lot of hype, and, frankly, I thought it was going to be more about actually going to college. But college and college life really have very little to do with it.

I rate a comedy by how many times it makes me laugh. Stealing Harvard didn't make me laugh at all. I like the other movies with Jason Lee and Tom Green, so I was very disapointed by the lack of humor in this flick. Keep in mind that I'm not very picky, I even enjoyed Freddy Got Fingered. I don't even demand a coherant story plot, I just want to laugh. This movie has absolutely no comedy value.
