Is It College Yet? (Daria: Is It College Yet?) (2002)
This animated feature serves as the coda to the MTV series Daria, which spawned 65 half-hour episodes and one previous movie (Daria: Is It Fall Yet?) during its five-year run. It is wry teen misfit Daria Morgendorffer's senior year at Lawndale High -- time to figure out what university to attend. Her first choice is Bromwell, which is also the first choice of her blue-blooded boyfriend, Tom, whose illustrious ancestors are all alumni. When Daria, Tom, and Tom's mother head off for a campus visit, things don't go as planned. Daria almost bombs her interview; even worse, traffic, bad weather, and the need for Tom to suck up to the alumni keep Daria from getting more than a drive-by look at her second-choice school, Raft. Ironically, though, she gets into Raft and not Bromwell. Tom, of course, does, and the resulting friction leaves a question mark hanging over their relationship. College questions also plague Daria's friends: Jane frets over whether even to apply to art school in Boston, while Jodie must convince her status-obsessed father to let her attend a primarily African-American university where she can finally fit in. Big questions face even Lawndale's younger students as Daria's fashion-plate sister, Quinn, is forced to take a restaurant job to pay off the credit-card bills she's rung up on clothes; hanging out with college kids and helping a new friend through a drinking problem help give Quinn a new outlook on her previously shallow life; can the end of the Fashion Club be far behind? Daria: Is It College Yet? premiered on MTV on Monday, January 21, 2002; nearly commercial-free, the original presentation included the world premiere of the video for "Breaking Up the Girl" by pop band Garbage, alongside clips from all five seasons of the show. … More

Audience Reviews for Is It College Yet? (Daria: Is It College Yet?)
This show did take pretty risky conflicts for an animated show, and shows in general. But, in a way, while some risky and some dramatic, it tackled it in a funny way. Thats what I love about both movies and the show, every episode (With the exception of 4[but out of 66 episodes]) were funny, clever, animated well (It was really good for the time), and had great characters, which means that this show is like 97% flawless. It really does capture the high school life perfectly, and even though the show is 14 years old, it still does capture it greatly (Hell! It does it better than the shows that are supposed to be taken seriously, you know, Glee, dawson's creek, Degrassi, etc.). And there is no character in this show that you don't know in real life, or cannot relate to. Considered the best show on MTV to be ever made? I seriously believe that.More
