Product Description

Product Description

Teen comedy. When every college turns him down, Bartleby 'B' Gaines (Justin Long) decides to make one up. Welcome to South Harmon Institute of Technology, where the students teach the classes, the Dean lives in a trailer out the back, and Bartleby's on the way to scoring with the girl of his dreams.

From Amazon.co.uk

Justin Long has been hovering on the edges of movies like The Break-Up and Dodgeball, providing little comic bursts that are often funnier than the rest of the movie. In Accepted, Long plays Bartleby Gaines, a fast-talking slacker who, when he gets rejected by every college he applied to, invents a phony college to get his parents off his back. Unfortunately, the website his best friend creates is too effective--hundreds of other rejects apply and are accepted. Instead of revealing the hoax, Gaines decides to forge ahead and let the students create their own curriculum, little suspecting that their school is obstructing the expansion plans of the nearby snobbish college. Accepted is much better than you might expect, given the low bar set by most campus comedies; it aims for, and sometimes achieves, the blend of slapstick and social satire that Animal House embodied. Long proves to be a charming leading man without losing his quirky comic sense and the supporting cast is consistently entertaining, particularly stand-up comedian Lewis Black, who delivers a variety of sardonic rants about society. Accepted's critique of conformism is glib--you wish they'd given it a little more bite--but it's still valid and a pleasant sliver of substance in an otherwise vapid genre. --Bret Fetzer

This is perhaps on instantly forgetable feature but the cast members who will be familiar from other features or TV, Ed or Superbad, play to their strengths and its a fun feature.

As a feature this has much more in common with more traditional US college humour or fare such as the Animal House or Dazed and Confused like that than more recent movies like American Pie, Old Skool etc. There are only one or two sexually references in the humour and it never becomes vulgar or gross out.

In a party gig sequence there is a revamped version of Dont You Forget About Me playing out.

There are themes about the commercialisation of college, expectations and experience in buying an education and the idea of a fun college vs. elite fraternity hell, although it is all played for laughs and entertainment value. It is a funny feature and without plunging any depths of profoundity is engaging enough to keep viewing attention, the "good guys" are sympathetic and the "villains" unlikeable but not despicable in an unrealistic way.

I would recommend this to anyone, particularly fans of any of the films I've mentioned already.

Best Film ever made about College you'll be left with the impression - where do i sign up? And How come? real college isn't like this? if it were, kids would be banging on the doors to get in. Maybe all educators of kids should be made to watch this movie, on how to inspire kids, to follow their dreams...

This is a 1st class teen film and i think it has the quality to stand out in everyones dvd collection. If you like american pie, road trip, Van wilder films like that. Then you will deffinetly like this one. Accept It ... !

Let's say you've been something of an underachiever in high school, living a Ferris Bueller-like life and not exactly hitting the books very hard. You're a pretty cool guy, but now it's time to face reality. The closest you've gotten to the class hottie is her front lawn (which she flirted you into mowing for her) and - horror of horrors - every single college you applied to has turned you down flat (which is going to come as quite a blow to your parents). What do you do? Well, naturally, there's only one thing to do - have your nerdy best friend (Jonah Hill) create a fancy web site for a nonexistent college, fake an acceptance letter from said college, and use dad's tuition money to lease an abandoned mental hospital that you can clean up and pass off as an actual educational institution. It helps if you have a few friends joining you in this whole crazy scheme - friends like Hands (Columbus Short), who lost his athletic scholarship because of an injury, Glen (Adam Herschman), who probably can't even spell college, and Rory (Maria Thayer), a totally cute redhead who only applied to one school (Yale) and had her cherished dreams dashed at the manicured hands of smarmy Ivy League administrators who probably all talk like Thurston Howell, III. Certainly, it takes some work to turn a filthy, abandoned loony bin into a "college" impressive enough to fool your parents when they drop you off, but it's going to be all fun and games after they leave, right? It might be - if about 300 other folks didn't show up with acceptance letters and tuition money in hand (seems that good old Sherman made the college web site a little too functional).Read more ›

This film is amazing, I think when faced in the world of work uni college and growing up it is definitely scary, but worst of all not getting into uni is upsetting for you and your parents but this film shows how these teenagers faced with not getting into any uni they come up with there own and help teenagers like themselves have the uni experience that you wouldn't get in a normal uni. Definitely one to watch with the family.

Bartleby is a fun loving slacker who gets turned down for every college he applies for, much to the annoyance of his expectant parents.

So, he creates the South Harmon Institute of Technology, and lo and behold, he is accepted.

However, his parents want to see the website, the campus, and the dean. So now he has his friend Sherman build a web page, they lease out an abandoned psychiatric hospital, and they hire Sherman's uncle Ben to be the dean.

The web page was done so well, that hundreds of students show up at the front door, all of which were turned down by other colleges.

Faced with no choice, Bartleby decides to proceed with turning South Harmon into a real college......

Never really had any intention of seeing this movie, but it was a real treat and harks back to the high school movies of the eighties.

Long is great as always and reminds one of Cusack in movies like better off dead and the sure thing. The rest of the cast are okay, but really have nothing on Long.

It loses its pace toward the end, what with all the speeches about equality, and the posh school grates after a while, but with films like this, we always need a bad guy, and we always need a heart warming speech.

well worth seeing though....
