Accepted-2006, starring Justin Long, Jonah Hill, Blake Lively, Lewis Black, the dad from The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and David Daskal.
He says- A group of teenagers who've been rejected by various colleges start their own in an abandoned mental institution. Premise is so far-fetched that it keeps you watching just to find out how it's going to resolve itself. Its message that a college education kills the creative genius that teenagers would otherwise cultivate on their own is hard to swallow after seeing the "self-made students" do nothing but drink and party. Soundtrack is full of cover songs paying homage to other, better teen-revolution movies. 2 stars.
I say- This movie was one of the most predictable I have EVER seen. You know the lines before they're said, and everyone acts so incredibly unrealistically that it plays out like a Nickelodeon sketch comedy from the early 90's. 1 star.
