Not enough laughs and the story is pretty generic... Such a pity with a decent cast at its disposal. The plot is horribly flimsy and the tale of outcasts who find acceptance has been repeated since the 80s. Unfortunately for me, Accepted gets rejected. Resonant Line: "Bartleby Gaines: I could go to jail. Uncle Ben: Don't worry, you're young. Your butt can take it."
pretty dumb. cheesy story. not very funny. jonah hill was about the only funny thing in this movie, and he didn't even have that many parts. the good thing for justin long is that he still got to show that he's a pretty good actor in this pretty terrible movie (2 viewings)
Despite being bad, this is a funny movie. It has all the ingredients for totally sucking but manages a couple funny scenes. It is quite apparent that a lot of this movie was improvised, and that works both for and against it.
