This Dead Man is a stiff.

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.

Some of the endless drug-sex-rock-'n'-roll gags are cute, but most are so paper-thin they disintegrate on contact with fresh air.

Devoid of style or wit, this film wastes the talent of some fine comedic actors.

If you have a roommate you really want to see suffer, here's a suggestion: Buy him or her a ticket to Dead Man on Campus.

A moribund stinker that has been moldering in a studio morgue drawer for some time.

The trouble is that it's not remotely funny enough not to seem merely strained, silly and even disgusting in its ultimate endorsement of conning your way into academic survival.
