It's all handled so poorly that it comes off as more ghoulish than anything else, although those who find the word "bong" instantly entertaining and are easily distracted by the presence of flickering images may be amused.
The material is mostly predictable, moronic and deadly dull.
Oddly, the troubled Cliff is more sympathetic than the two self-involved protagonists.
Dead Man on Campus is a modestly amusing trifle that merits a passing grade as lightweight entertainment.
As a satire of new-style collegiate types, this MTV production actually evinces a few germs of rancid wit. If only the laborious high-concept plot had been deep-sixed -- and, along with it, the cynically blah heroes.
It is a movie whose appeal will diminish in direct proportion to the number of years it has been since you were a sexually-frustrated, pimply-faced undergrad.
The jokes are few. And the only real reason you'll laugh is that, by the time they appear on screen, you've been waiting so long for the opportunity, you'll laugh at anything.
This Dead Man is a stiff.
As premises go, this one is unusually thin, boorish and insensitive. No amount of reworking with a No. 2 pencil will do any good.
It's amiably played, but Alan Cohn's direction lacks bite.
Surpise, surprise! This college comedy is better than you'd expect.
An education in cheap, easy laughs.
Somewhat decent, but very forgettable comedy, Dead Man on Campus is a fun comedy that though flawed manages to be entertaining. The story isn't anything great, but for the most part it brings on a few laughs. This is a film that is mindless fun. I enjoyed the film for what it was, a mindless entertaining romp that brought decent laughs. The film is not meant to be a great comedy,. I enjoyed the shear silliness of this film, and thought it was fun. The cast do a fairly decent job. Dead Man on Campus is one of those comedies that is perfect to watch with friends and have a good time. The jokes are good, never anything great; but most of the time it makes you laugh. Dead Man on Campus is underrated and though far from the worst comedy, it's not the best either The film is a decent film to watch and like I said, the film had its moments. The cast are fun to watch and obviously the key performance here is Lochlyn Munro as Cliff. He made the film better. Although Munro isn't a great actor, he manages to bring something worthwhile to the screen. This film is meant as a mindless comedy that shouldn't be taken seriously whatsoever. The film is no Hangover, but it manages to deliver good entertainment for what it is. I enjoyed the film, and I found it quite amusing despite its imperfections. Dead Man on Campus is a mindless comedy worth watching if you're in the mood for something a little dumb. Once in a while it's worth watching something stupid. Not the best comedy, but far better than films like Freddy Got Fingered and Biodome.
One of the better American college movies due to a great and simple premise "If your roommate dies, you get an A", which makes for a great comedy.
Several hilarious moments that induced such intense laughter that I cried.
