This is not a great movie. But as a guy straggling along at the end of a French Literature PhD program, who spent five years teaching SAT/GRE/GMAT/MCAT/DAT for Kaplan Test Prep, and who has, for the last year and a half, been the question-writer and MC at my own university's graduate student union bar trivia, I have to say that this film filled a huge pop-culture void that I didn't even know was there. The teams that are really devoted to my Trivia Night come every week, no matter what the state of their doctoral/master's work is, and I see that for them, as for me, the very triviality of what we're doing makes it take on greater importance, because this one night a week the people can just get loaded and match nerdy wits instead of banging their brains out against computer screens. And of course it gives us all an excuse to get out of the house and be together, which is really the point. I think that in time this film will be a cult classic, despite its many hackneyed aspects, because Bar Trivia is a cult - if you're not a part of it, you just wouldn't understand. This movie will be to "trivialists" (a kickass neologism coined by the film's characters) what Vision Quest is to wrestlers. Mark my words.
