Movie Reviews

Good movie for high school seniors
P. Sands | Alabama | 03/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I would say that this is a great movie from the 1980s for any senior in high school working to the last minute to get accepted into the college of their choice along with some of the pressures along the way. A very good movies that sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of other 1980s teen type movies. Give it a watch!"
SPORADICALLY FUNNY TEEN PIC

"IF YOURE A SIMPSONS FAN ITS WORTH SEEING THIS FILM JUST TO SEE THE LATE PHIL HARTMAN (RIP) MORE OR LESS BRING TROY MCLURE TO LIFE,ALSO THE LEAD COMES ACROSS QUITE ADAM SANDLERISH, UNFORTUNATLEY YOU CAN TELL THIS FILM HAS AGED QUITE A BIT THOUGH."
Not the most sophisticated, BUT

"This movie highlights so many truths of college admissions. Personally, I think the whole college thing is crap. And this movie made me slightly more depressed about it but also hopeful in a way, because I knew what they were saying was true. This movie proves that you don't have to be smart or talented to succeed in school, you just have to know the right formulas. And apparently I know all the right formulas but that hasn't gotten me any farther in life. So the people that get horrible grades in high school and don't get into any of the "good" schools need not worry. They can probably succeed in life anyway. I really think this movie is worth viewing for any high school junior or senior who's beginning to take the college admissions game a little too seriously. I know it helped clear my head and actually helped me decided that some of the schools with really good reputations are way too pretentious for me."

"I have this movie on VHS and I am so excited that it is being released on DVD.
It's not a brilliant film but one that openly makes you laugh.
Anthony Edwards is fantastic as a college recruiter, he is one of the best parts of this movie.
This movie is so true to form for those have had struggles getting into the college of their dreams.
Lara Flynn Boyle is cute as the popular All-American coed and actually looks normal compared to her anorexic self these days.
I suggest that anyone who has a clue about the college admissions process see this movie if only to remember that time in their lives or to prepare for the process in their future.
There are also a few others who have bit parts that are great to watch including the late Phil Hartman who is always good for a few laughs."
