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)!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I was looking for a fun film along the lines of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and came across 'Accepted'. I like the premise of the movie, the actors in it, and the length (about 1.5 hours). My 15 years old daugher and I sat down with our popcorn, hoping to laugh our way through a light, comedic flick. We were disappointed.

    I'm giving Accepted 3 out of 5 stars for 'OK' because it is, but just 'OK'. The idea that outcasts can find a special place where their uniqueness is celebrated, and where they can learn from each other, is great. That's the message that I got from the film, and I like it.

    What I didn't like was the film dragged along, with only a few laughs. We expected adolescent humor - in fact we were counting on it, but instead we found ourselves either bored or thinking it was just not worth continuing to watch this movie. We did finish the movie, but it was purely in the hope that we'd find some reason to like it. That never happened.

    I know that sometimes I read reviews (particularly bad ones of items I liked...) and think that the reviewer must not like anything. In hopes of helping other viewers to decide whether this film which was not for me, is for them, I'm going to share what comedic movies of the same ilk I like. Here's a few: Bruce Almighty, Ace Ventura, Easy A, 21 Jump Street, Zohan, Revenge of the Nerds, Freaky Friday (original and newer versions), Back To School and Pretty In Pink.

    A lot of reviewers really liked this movie. I keep asking myself 'Did I miss something?', and as hard as I try, all I keep coming up with is 'Yes, renting a good movie.'
