Becky and I went to see Accepted last week at the AMC Movie theater in Littleton, Colorado. The theater was packed with a bunch of teenagers and a bit rowdy with a typical PG-13 audience. The Fandango website at Accepted describes the movie as follows:
“After being turned down by a bunch of colleges, a high school senior and his pals decide to start their own university. The plan becomes complicated as more rejected students begin to enroll, a nearby school offers competition, and the freshman struggles to keep up the ruse for his parents and dream girl.”
Accepted was a very goofy movie that had a number of good laughs for such a ridiculous story. It’s a bit like Animal House meets Old School with a story that was complete nonsense, but funny nevertheless. The story is actually pretty funny and Justin Long, the guy on those Apple commercials, is good for this part and half-way believable that he could pull off his zany plan.
There are a bunch of silly characters in Accepted and you will need to get past the premise because it’s not at all realistic. If you can do that then you will have plenty of laughs in this film. The audience was cracking up in this movie and most people really enjoyed it.
In reality, it’s probably a movie to wait for the rental for, but we both thought it was enough fun to think that it was worth the trip.
