Plot Outline:

After a slacker is rejected from every college he applies to, he decides, along with some creative editing, to create his own college and is accepted. But his overly-anxious parents want to check out his new school and so he must create one: website, campus - the whole works. But fooling his parents is just the beginning, as more and more rejected would-be students apply - and are accepted - leading to a showdown with the local college for the future of this higher education. -- Chris Kavan

Just an average teen comedy, with a few really funny moments.

The fun of this film hinges on the likability and comic timing/improv of its leads. A pre-Apatow Jonah Hill and a fresh-off-Dodgeball Justin Long carry the movie, which does put forth a ridiculous premise. It's still entertaining enough to watch the cast riff off each other, all believability aside.

Accepted is another brainless wacky comedy, that works at first, then suffers later on. I'm a fan of wacky comedies, but not when the laughs are few and far between, that's the case here. The writing is ok, but only for a while. The cast is decent with some fun characters, but also a lot of annoying characters. Justin Long is ok in the lead role, but Jonah Hill steals the film by delivering most of the funny dialogue. Lewis Black is also funny in an under used role. Blake Lively is charming in her role, i definitely see a bright future for her. The film is entertaining and occasionally fun, until it is ruined by an awful and unrealistic ending.

(Run time: 90 min. - Directed by: Steve Pink - Starring: Justin Long, Jonah Hill, Adam Herschman, Columbus Short, Maria Thayer, Lewis Black)

I want to recommend to anyone who hasn't seen the comedy Accepted to check it out. This movie caught my attention a couple of years ago while surfing through the local rental store. After taking it home, popping it into my DVD player, and laughing my butt off I proceeded to purchase the movie the next day! Seriously.

The story is about a high school graduate named Bartleby Gaines, played by Justin Long, that fails to get into college and whose parents simply just don't understand why? So, instead of dissappointing them any further he invents his own college with the help of his friends. He then proceeds to fake...

Suprisingly Well Done!

Accepted is one of those bizarre movies that somehow seemed to slip under my radar when it hit theaters, and it wasn't until much later that I watched it on DVD and came to appreciate it. That being said, what was I thinking when I missed it in theaters?!?! In terms of overall comedy, there have certainly been movies that made me laugh more, and also those that made me laugh much less. This one, however, finds the right balance between comedic wit and slap-stick humor. In the end, the message comes through loud and clear with one of the most inspired movie speechs I've seen lately, delivered wonderfully by Justin Long. Accepted tells you that it's okay to avoid conforming, so long as you do so to pursue what you love, and that sounds like a good plan to me!

Shhh Head

Rejection is a funny thing. Who would have thought that being rejected to college was best thing that's ever happen to Bartleby Gaines. And what is the master plan if you're not accepted by any college, well duh create a college of your own. First step is to think of a catchy name, oh how about South Harmon Institute of Technology that's a good name. Anyone can call it S.H.I.T for short, what a splash of genius to think of such a brilliant name. Although there are a few things that I wished could have been funnier, but all in all I've had so much fun watching Justin Long hurt himself with his antics. Other characters made also their mark and did all they could to entertain. I was somewhat reminded about the students from the movie High School High which I almost died from laughing. Its ov...
