Monty (Brendan Fraser) is a self-absorbed graduate student who is obsessed with finishing his thesis on government so that he can satisfy his demanding teacher, Professor Pitkannan (Gore Vidal).

This movie is predictable from scene one, though that wouldn't be a problem if it had a good script, good performances and solid direction. But it doesn't.

Sin Magazine

A politically correct, vastly sentimental and ultimately insincere saga of the friendship between a kind homeless man, played by Joe Pesci, and a guilt-ridden Harvard student, played byBrendan Frazer.

Obviously inspired by the success of Scent of a Woman, this one could have been called Scent of a Bum.

Do you amuse me, Joe Pesci? No, you do not.

July 5, 2004

Well meaning drama but oversimplifies a lot and plays the death card too easily.

About.com

One of the few films I've ever walked out on. Pesci and Fraser serve up unsympathetic and grating characters.

March 19, 2003
eFilmCritic.com

A shaggy dog drama about the education of one upwardly bound college student.

Audience Reviews for With Honors

A simplistic movie - a homeless bum teaches Harvard students what is important in life, but everything is too easy in this movie.

A great drama, I saw this for a class, which usually makes you dislike a movie, but this one was fantastic. The story is based on a real story, and the actors are good, and it's just so cool. If you like dramas, you have to see it.

I liked this one. The cast was really good and it gave Pesci a chance to shine while not being a goofball or a gangster. The rest of the cast was really good and the story moved along really well.

Very interesting drama about a homeless philosopher who teaches blue-blooded Harvard student about life and compassion. This great story is predictable, even when it takes a tear-jerking turn, but Joe Pesci's cocky charm and the remarkably attractive supporting ensemble keep things interesting.
