Overview

When the weight of rejection begins to set in after being denied entry to every college he has applied to, a high school burnout attempts to placate his mom and dad and win the heart of his dream girl by scheming with his friends to create a fake university in a hilarious comedy of artificial education directed by Steve Pink and starring Justin Long. Bartleby "B" Gaines Long is a high school senior whose street smarts just never seemed to translate into the classroom, and whose bad luck in love has left him pining for the unattainable Monica Blake Lively. When Bartleby and his rebellious crew of outcasts find the frequent college rejection letters they have all been receiving bringing endless grief from their disappointed parents, they soon band together to create the fictional South Harmon Institute of Technology. After creating a believable façade in an abandoned psychiatric hospital, employing the talents of a close friend's brilliantly subversive uncle Lewis Black to pose as the dean, and creating a phony website in order to sell the school to their parents, Bartleby and friends soon realize that all of their hard work has paid off in ways than they never imagined. With a variety of college rejects attempting to enroll in classes at the ersatz university and the skepticism of some privileged students from a nearby college drawing unwanted attention to the South Harmon Institute of Technology, Bartleby and friends find their ruse becoming ever more difficult to maintain.

    WoW!

    I think most of the classes that you take in a traditional college are a joke. what's the point of prelim classes? either you know the material or not and if the professor isn't passionate about what they're teaching shouldn't that say something about them?? I wish college was really like this. you go to school & take the type of classes that you really want to learn in life. if it makes you a better person then why not? great movie. please pick it up.

    The storyline was very classic, but presented slightly differently in a very humorous way. I believe Lewis Black was a wonderful addition to this movie to make it even better.

    [3.5]--Far from perfect, but nowhere near ruins

    This movie said so many things I've been rambling about for over a decade. The American education system is absolutely …..not that great. College is a joke and the make believe college that Gaines creates appropriately abbreviated is really a decent movie. It does make you want to go out and do something you've been wanting to do for a while. Enter “Accepted,” directed by John Cusack pal Steve Pink and led by the likable Justin Long (the smart nerdy kid in “Galaxy Quest” and more recently featured in Apple computer ads), about a bunch of kids who don't get accepted to college and decide, as disclosed in the trailer, to fake a bogus one to get their parents off their backs. When they go a little too far with the website and other kids end up enrolling, the kids have a few problems to solve. Yes, the film does feel familiar in some spots there's a debt here owed, of all places, to “Revenge of the Nerds.” Those who are rejected by everyone else find a home with Bartleby and his cohorts, and of course the villains are steroid-enhanced conformist Master Race types who run a fraternity and seek to humiliate and bury the oddity for the – gasp – crime of being different. But that aside, “Accepted” has fun with the material, and even asks a few decent questions about the expectations on college kids and the course of higher education. Not that it's a brain teaser by any means, but Accepted isn't just another mindless teen comedy (or Owen Wilson vehicle). While not a great departure from its genre, it’s intelligent enough to be an enjoyable movie.

    See this one

    Okay, the comedy follows an OLD formula but it still works. I laughed quite a few times during this movie and recommend it for anyone wanting to pass an evening with laughter and college nostalgia.
