It has a few funny bits here and there, but they're deeply mired in the seen-it-all-beforeness of the film.

Sporadically entertaining but relentlessly lightweight...

March 15, 2007
Though keeping worthwhile targets - like professors who want to see their most creative students fail - director Steve Pink lets his punk inspiration slide into standard school rivalries and unrelated slapstick.

The movie works on the pure energy of its straight-faced silliness.

[Accepted] would be funnier with an R rating on principle

October 5, 2006
Average comedy that's low on jokes and doesn't quite live up to its premise, though it remains watchable thanks to a charming performance by Justin Long.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Amid the corny cliches, the writers have buried several genuinely hilarious throwaway lines.

Wants to be so much funnier than it actually is.

August 31, 2006
A flat comedy based on a flimsy premise and filled out with the usual "snowballing lie" plot, climaxing in the "rousing speech."

Subversive, sophomoric comedy

Any movie that lets the Daily Show's Lewis Black, as the school's ad-hoc dean, rant at will about consumerism and foul-mouthed freethinking definitely knows its S.H.I.T. from shinola.

It's merely the latest entry (and a regrettably PG-13 rated one at that) in the "slobs vs. snobs" comedy subgenre that dates back to the far superior Animal House.

If -- for whatever incomprehensible reason -- you're searching for a movie with maximum ennui value, this is that movie.

Unfortunately for Accepted, the movie's make-the-grade spunkiness as a collegiate cut-up has been emphatically Denied.

Listen, while I wish the writers would have been able to keep their momentum up and avoid a few dry spells, there is more than enough going on to the positive these flaws end up becoming fairly moot.

Even the characters in the movie are saying at the beginning, 'This is crazy. This will never work.' And I'm like, you know what? You're right. It never will. Not for one second. Even in a whacky comedy like this.

Could possibly gain Frat Pack pledge Justin Long his own acceptance.

Slackers, Rejoice! Makes the comedy honor roll for being inventive and riotously funny.

I went in expecting that "Accepted" would flunk its PG-13 comedy course within minutes. Was I ever surprised to discover that it's sometimes clever, and surprisingly gentle -- a formula to be sure, yes, but an enjoyable one all the same.
