PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
A college student, branded a loser by his roommates and booted from the dorm, falls in love with a coed who has eyes for their condescending professor.
Paul's dorm is called Hunt's Hall. Audiences, especially older, might take this as an allusion to actor Huntz Hall, who was born in New York City (the setting of this film). Huntz played Horace DeBussy "Sach" Jones, a lively buffoon in the Bowery Boys film series, which followed his time as a Dead End Kid in Dead End and in the subsequent Dead End Kids series. It would be an appropriate connotation, in that the Chris, Adam and Noah characters are all buffoons as well as dead end kids (hedonistic young males with no real future).
I'm gonna tell you something, and this... this is gonna be for your own good, okay?
Paul Tannek: Okay.
Chris: No one likes you.
Paul Tannek: They don't?
Chris: No. You didn't notice?
In the laundry room scene between Paul and Chris, Chris pranks Paul by grilling him about whether he was sleeping with his girlfriend. After fessing up to the prank, Chris says, "I'm just playing with you," but his lips are clearly saying, "I'm just fucking with you" (presumably to retain the PG-13 rating as there is another F-word mention later in the film).
