Story

Dewon Sawa is the impish leader of a trio of higher-education shysters who are blackmailed by deranged nerd Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore) into playing cupid in this latest twist on the college prank comedy. It starts playfully enough and winds through some clever test-taking shell games and commando-style operations to cheat the system, but soon enough falls into a familiar formula of teen sex, outrageous pranks, and gross-out gags. If that's your bag, this film rings the bell with a mind-boggling scene involving Schwartzman, '60s sex bomb Mamie Van Doren, and a sponge bath. Sawa's crooked smile is loaded for charm, James King is adorable as the angelic beauty, and Schwartzman is perhaps too convincing as a stalker with a raging psychosis, but this has nothing on Animal House, the original college rebel film of sex, scams, and the celebration of bad taste. --Sean Axmaker
